This popular travellers' guesthouse is spread over two neighbouring buildings, with a sociable vibe and helpful staff. Rooms, some with lots of wood trim, are a shade pricey and pretty functional, but the bed linen is fresh and the place is clean. The switched-on owners offer lots of good tours of the region, and rent bikes (per half-day/day Rs 1000/1500) and scooters.
