My friend and I stayed at this guesthouse for 4 nights. We paid 650 rupees per night for a double, non-AC room. We had booked over the phone and everything was in order when we arrived. The guesthouse is within easy walking distance of the Mahabodhi Temple. Despite the 106F weather in Bodhgaya during our stay, the ceiling fan kept... More

The owner is an arrogant and rude person. She requires you to pay for your entire stay upfront. So if you stay 1 month, she requires you to pay 30 nights at check-in, and if you dare to negociate, she starts screaming at you like a sorceress. Actually, many times a day you can hear her scream in the hallways.... More

We stayed there for four nights. The ladies run the place have done a great job maintaining the rooms, very clean and best hot shower we had in India. Rahul guest house is not on the main noisy street but only two minutes walking from Mahabodh temple. Village is quiet most of the time.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while in Bodhgaya and would highly recommend it. We arrived before 7am and were greeted by one of the staff who allowed us to check into our room early. There was a balcony with a nice open area just near our room which had good views and a large table and chairs.... More

This really nice place with good family which run this guesthouse. The bed and room were clean. There was hot shower and relatively good WIFI connection. Although it seems it is far away from downtown on a map, it is just 300 meters from Mahabodhi Temple entrance.

This is a simple, cheap (as in not expensive) peaceful place. It is situated behind the Kalchakra ground about 5 minutes walking from the Vietnamese institute. The place will give you a clean airy bedroom and a clean bathroom, that's it, don't expect any value added services. Wifi is free though and the signal is stable, its better on the... More
