Had a wonderful and very comfortable Time in the homestay. Here we stayed 2 nights in their special upper cottage. The owners Mr. & Mrs. Sarin takes very good care about their guests, they are very polite and helpful. The food that Mrs. Sarin cooks wonderful food, utterly delicious much better than any restaurant you choose, the best part is you will fill like a home.
The location near the McLeod Ganj was very beautiful. It takes 20 mins by Taxi from Dharamsala ISBT bus stand to reach the Homes stay.
“Friendly, clean and beautiful!”

This review is very late, but I just had to write this because my stay at McLeodganj Homestay was just so fabulous. I stayed here for two nights and the hosts Nisha Aunty and her son Saahil were ever so helpful. Right from booking the homestay, everything went so smoothly that I didn't have anything to worry during my trip. The Saris have a beautiful house with a small cafe and a wonderful small nursery. The house looks beautiful when lit up at night.
The room was decent and clean. There was a small water issue one day but they were prompt to solve it. I fell ill on the second day and they were very helpful at that time. A wonderful place to stay while in McLeodganj (though it is little walk uphill from the main town).
Stayed June 2014, travelled solo
I was on a road trip and i'm traveler who likes to stay in homestays n hostels as i like to meet people . I believe great conversations take place when we meet new people . It totally surpassed my expectations .
So i like places which are peaceful n away from noise n all the chaos of a city . This place is perfect . It is a 10 minute walk from mcleodganj mainsquare n on the road to dharmkot . Its away from all the chaos of town and very peaceful . You could simply enjoy your morning tea in peace with a amazing view of the mountains from the in house cafe . The walk to mcleodganj main square( centre of town ) is very photogenic n thus keep your cameras ready :p .
Since its a homestay so please dont expect it to be a normal hotel . It is a family run and sahil the amazing guy handles the guest part . He was so caring about his guests that i noticed that he doesnt sleep unless his guests are back home and especially concerned regarding safety of women . The food was very well served and the rooms were very clean .this time i was in family room but next time i want to stay in the hut they have on the top floor . That room gives a breathtaking view . So if you get that room consider yourself lucky as the valley view is to die for .
I prefer travelling like a local n meeting new people thus homestays gives you that experience were i made some amazing friends from across the globe . I loved the place so much that i stayed an extra night out there . Sahil n family has perfected the art to give experience of a homestay and services of a hotel . Also i missed out on the special roasted chicken that mrs. Sarin makes , make sure you dont miss it :( . Simply amazing . Thank you sahil n family
“Loved staying at this home away from home”
After a much exhilarating ride all the way from my hometown which is like about 1700 kilometers away from McLeod Ganj, we wanted a place to crash at which should to say be good enough to relax our butts. Our booking at Homestay was a 11th hour decision. It looked decent and cozy in the pictures.
Reaching Homestay almost in the middle of the night, the owners from the very first minute made us feel that we were meeting a family we've known since ages and not some inn keepers and that we should feel at home.
Sahil and Bhushan, the two lovely chaps who run this place have stories to tell, advises to share and are absolutely fantastic at cooking leaving you smacking your lips and if you are an Asian who doesn't mind getting the fingers messy, then it will be finger lickin' good :P
Their mother will treat you with some good home cooked breakfast every morning that is nothing short of sumptuous and delicious.
We stayed in one of their cottages that was appropriately small and cozy. The bathroom was clean when we came in and had a small geyser to suit to our needs for warm water to bathe with. You get a nice adequately spaced closet to keep your things in. The bed was comfortable and the chilly nights are saved by the soft quilts they give you. The cottage opened to a picturesque view of the valley and the Himalayas. You might want to sit outside your cottage in the morning with a hot cup of coffee in hand and enjoy the view and the brew.
Overall, my stay was fantastic and would definitely recommend lodging here.
