Sleeping in McLeod overlooking the Himalayas. The two times I've been to Dharamsala I have stayed in these apartments: East Home. The apartment price double or extra mattress for between a third round (in 2004) 2-3 euros per person. When I went in 2003 they were still building them and in 2004 recently completed, so they are pretty new, so we have western toilet, shower and sink, a kitchen and a great terrace overlooking the Himalayas. The guy who runs it is a very clean Indian and also fun. The other people working or staying there are usually lovely. Highly recommended and located in one of the quietest areas of town.
Upon reaching the city Vashisht seemed to be still asleep, but it woke up and when went into the streets in search of good, nice and cheap accommodation. As usual it was not us who found it, but was the place which came to us. A small, vivacious young man offered to show us (newcomers with backpacks) the place he owned. We followed him to the top of the town and he showed us this quiet, clean place with great views. For 350 rp/night (about 5 euros) we had a very spacious room with a double bed, bathroom (with shower, hot water, sink and toilet), a large closet and a terrace. The people who run it are also very nice and you can get you almost anything you need. Right there they organize excursions, have a small shop and a restaurant on the terrace, make henna tattoos, have free room service .... but the best, the best of the hotel is the peace that reigns and the views surrounding it.
In the village of MATEULA, there are only 3 hostels: One at the beginning of the village, another next to the temple, in the center of the village fair, and the one where I stayed, at the top of the village. The views from my terrace were simply heavenly. Few times in my life will I enjoy these types of views in my "room". Everything around me was unbeatable. There were no meals, but fruit was around for you. A royal garden and not made by decorating professionals. Some young neighbors in the "flirting" age and a few birds here and there .. which made the only noise. After all of this the price of the "room" was one euro per head per day! .. Is there any other place in the world better in value?. Ah! Here I'm wrong with the name as other many times. The correct name of the village is MATEULA, but do not remember the hostel. .
This hostel is right in the town's bus station. If you come by bus you will find it easily since it is across the platforms. It has single, double, and basic rooms as well as rooms to share with other travelers. The price that I paid is almost a joke at about 100 rupees, something like 2 euros. They will feed you if you ask. The guy who runs it is a valuable source of information, very open and willing to accompany you wherever you need to go in his spare time. You can see a lot from your room and from the terrace, and you can see the other side of the mountain, the road that brings you up here and the snow peaks of 5 to 6000 meters high, which belong to the Ladakh mountain range. If you like this accommodation, Keylong offers several hostels to suit all tastes. Being small can visit them all in an hour if when you get strong enough or still not too late. ..
On the road between Bhagsu and Dharamkot, under Himalayan yoga center, is this green building green, a friendly guest house of Kumar. This was one of the options as a place to stay in Dharamkot, but the day we arrived it was full and although we liked Raju's house, as we were there we realized that we did not want to move, but Kumar rooms had good points, simple and cheap rooms. At the top there is a beautiful room that surrounds the building and is all window, was huge with kitchen and bathroom, that was the one we liked, and cost about 300 rps for 3 people. It is less quiet than Kamal and Raju, but is also easier to find space here and is a bit cheaper. Not that the site is great, simply bigger, which means more people and also a terrace restaurant below. The price of accommodation:
