Gautam Guesthouse

Guesthouse in Kasol

Gautam is a backpackers' favourite for its range of bare but clean, good-sized rooms with shared balconies, in a three-storey building with its own garden on the edge of New Kasol. There's no sign: it's a sizeable green house at the beginning of a lane running down towards the river, 80m past Evergreen restaurant.

Top-floor rooms are best, with some nice detailing to the decor.
