Cozy Homestay in Darjeeling
Starts from 1500
A small cozy home stay run by a Nepali family. There are five rooms which are well furnished yet simple having attached bath with western style toilet, geyser and shower. Views of the mountains is great. If you are looking for a cozy budget homestay which is close to the town center (Chowrasta Mall) yet far enough from the crowd, then this can be a great choice.
This is relatively new homestay run by Mr. Rai and his family. It’s located within short walking distance from the heart of Darjeeling, i.e. Chowrasta Mall area but tucked in a quiet locality which is free from crowd.
The owner’s family stays in the same house and will welcome you like members of the family. You will get a great opportunity of staying in a local home, spend few days of your life the way the real natives do here in Darjeeling and eating delicious local homemade breakfast. And all this while you stay within walking distance to several great tourist attractions of Darjeeling giving your a great location advantage.

The homestay is located on lower Toong Soong road, which is a narrow road and offshoot from the Mall Road and goes downhill. From the Bhanu Bhawan on Mall road, it would be hardly 3-minute walk and the Mall (Chowrasta) is about 5 minute walk. This is a vehicle free zone, so taxis won’t come up to the door front. You will need to get off at Bhanu Bhawan (also known as Gorkha Rang Manch ) on Mall road and walk for about 400 yards.
Mr. Rai will provide porters to carry your luggage. If you are travelling light, then this is an easy walk mostly on flat terrain and only some 100 yards towards the end is little downhill.
The rooms are of comfortable size, nicely appointed with wood panelling and have all the standard amenities like electronic kettles. There are large bay windows with curtains. There are cushioned wicker chairs and glass top tables kept near the windows to relax and enjoy the views.
Beds are of queen size and single (for independent travellers) with clean linens. The floors are carpeted. Rooms have a cupboard. Room heaters are separately chargeable and provided on request during the winter time.
The western style bathrooms are of standard size and have geysers for hot water. The geyser and the room heaters work only when there is main power supply. There is a shower mixer as well in the bathrooms. The best part of the homestay is that the homestay has censored lights.
The homestay does not have any in-house restaurant. There is also a pretty fully equipped dinning come kitchen in case you want to cook your own meals. So if you like to cook yourself, it’s a perfect set up. The family however makes excellent homemade breakfast.
Some of the best experiences are not the most expensive ones. Reasonably priced per room, the homestay is more welcoming than you can imagine.
