There are many guest houses on the main 'street' in Majnu Ka Tilla but this one seems to be amongst the best - in my experience. Choose a room with its own bathroom - it's worth the additional rupees. Nice little restaurant with a small library and pleasant staff.

This is a tough one and It will be mixed. I stayed here in 2006 and again now. Now: The room renovations are great, lighting TV etc. The staff friendly. The price is just above the moderate end for the Majnu ka Tilla area, but, as the room renovations go, then worth the price. but... While friendly the staff does...
