This is my 3rd visit to Hampi and my 3rd stay with Rocky. It has all been said before,....comfy, clean rooms, hot water, great central location and of course, Rocky himself ! He is a big fish in a small pond and a really genuine, good person. He deserves his success as he works hard and really puts himself out...

Location in the Hampi village was great for a short stay. Rocky organised us a rickshaw for the next day for sightseeing, however this is because we weren't aware you needed to provide 24h notice if you want to rent a bike. They also organised rickshaw to and from the train/bus station. Good breakfast (not free) however it's a shame...

In february 2017 I visited Hampi the 2nd time. I decided to stay at Rocky Guesthouse. This property is a very cosy and family run place, very clean, very safe. I had a very nice room with a bathroom. On the roof top restaurant you can choose among a variety of delicious dishes. Shops and other restaurants are around.From this...

This is about right for the money, with reasonable, clean if basic rooms. Average food served at prices in kilter with the area. Poor wifi lets the guesthouse down as it's frequently inadequate for normal use. The owner is an affable and informative source of information.

Stayed for 2 nights at Rocky's. Fantastic place, central location and Rocky is a great host who will help you to make the most of your time in Hampi.

The spot is amazing- in the midst of the ruins of old hampi. Rooms are comfortable. Rocky is amazingly helpful. We had a really short time. Organised a taxi pick up from GOA airport (driver's details and whatsapp Id supplied days before), train ticket back booked, and taxi to drop us off and pick us at GOA- all sorted before...

This hotel is right next to Virupacheswar Temple. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity. The rooms are decent with reasonable WiFi signal. Breakfast on a rooftop restaurant. The main attraction to this place is the owner Rocky. He is a whiz at organising things- he organised our transfer to and from Hampi and also guides...

What a joy it was to spend a few nights with Rocky and his family. Accommodation, while basic, is comfortable. It is situated in the centre of Hampi and thus access to all the sites is easy. Highly recommended.

Hampi is no thriving city metropolis but it seems to manage the enormous number of people that invade its charming location with aplomb - enter THE MAN: ROCKY is your 'MR FIX IT' man' in india if you are an independent traveller looking for help with advanced bookings [especially india rail] which makes life so much more relaxing when you...
