“Very nice hostel, clean, friendly, nice food, lovely roof terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

This is a charming hostel only 10 mins walk from the railway station (if you know where you are going down the lanes, otherwise it's further on the main road). The owners are friendly and helpful, there is free wifi and there is a roof terrace with tables and chairs, shade, plants etc (see pics) where they serve meals. (Note, like many places in Jaipur, no meat or alcohol, although you can BYO) and everything is beautifully decorated.
The owners will sort out reasonably priced taxis and rickshaws, whether for short journeys or for day tours. They will also help you book onward travel.
The rooms we saw and all the public areas were clean, there was hot water on demand via a water heater in our room, and our room even had a small balcony.
Would definitely stay here again if I was in Jaipur.

Room Tip: We were in 113 and we had a small balcony, we were also opposite the wifi room which was great as we...

We stayed here for 10 days in Feb 2010. Vinayak is a lovely homely, friendly guest house. Raman and his family made us feel very welcome. Loved the bedrooms with the traditional colourful Indian decor, and the delicious home cooking we enjoyed every day. Free fast wi-fi. Five minutes to get to from the train station or 20 minutes walking. Nice and quite away from the main town. An added surprise and experience was the local weddings that took place at the top of the road....it was very interesting and colourful.....with painted elephants too!
Would definately stay here again.

After our first time in Jaipur we were not sure that we wanted to go back to this city. But when we arrived at Vinayak Guesthouse we were happy that we did. We had found the peaceful haven that we needed in this loud and chaotic city. From the moment we arrived the family that runs this place took great care of us. We enjoyed our stay so much that when we had to come back through Jaipur on our way down south we stayed again with them and found ourselves enjoying it even more. The rooms are beautiful, clean, a great value and well maintained, the showers are great and have very hot water, the rooftop terrace is lovely and peaceful, the wifi always worked well for us and, as I said, the family here is just so friendly and helpful. We found Vinayak Guesthouse through hostelbookers.com (where we have had great luck finding wonderful accommodations). The guesthouse is on a quiet side street and just a couple minutes, in a rickshaw, away from the train station. Thank you Vinayak!

Room Tip: Both rooms (upstairs and downstairs) where we stayed were wonderful but if you want wifi in your roo...

Best hostel I stayed in during 6 weeks in india - Raman the host very friendly, welcoming and informative. Good restaurant if you don't mind paying a lttle extra.

Super clean and 24 HOT showers. Good location - nearby shops and 20/30 mins walk to town (or local bus).

When I arrived they made exta room for me in the 'store cupboard' which was probably the cleanest room i'd had in india - they offered me discount immediately for the inconvenience.

24 hour fast WIFI.

This hostel is the BEST!!
