Poor service, borderline racist Poor service, borderline racist

I bookmarked this place on trip advisor and was excited to book a room for two of my friends who we visiting me for a few days. This was their first visit to India and I thought this place would be a perfect fit. Sadly I left disappointed with the behavior of the male staff member there who I would assume was the manager. I arrived at the gate of this "ashram" and found a staff member seated at the reception area, bent over, and writing on what looked like a hotel registration book. I asked him (in Hindi) if he had any rooms available. He immediately proceeded to wave me off and said he had no rooms available without even so much as looking up to me. I found it odd that he did not ask me about the dates of my inquiry as is common practice and especially since this was the start of the off-peak season(early February). While still standing by the gate I asked him nicely why he dismissed me so quickly about room availability without asking the dates first and this is when he finally looked up and responded (in Hindi): "'do you know how much the rooms here cost per night?" He then mentioned a number (I believe it was between Rs 2200-Rs2400). I found his response utterly rude as he made assumptions about what I can or cannot afford. Moreover, his behavior was borderline racist. Full disclosure I am Tibetan and speak Hindi because I grew up in India even though I currently live overseas. I believe he assumed I could not afford this place there because I was a "local."I left feeling upset but also disappointed that a seemingly lovely guesthouse like this in Bodh Gaya has such a poor attitude towards guests who are not white or don't fit the mole of what they deem as their "model" customers. My friends ended up staying somewhere else and I would caution people from supporting businesses like this. I'm not sure if this was a rare occurrence but I felt compelled to share my experience as it was so disturbing.

Peaceful, clean and cozy! Peaceful, clean and cozy!

The guesthouse is very well located, you can walk from it anywhere. But it is not in the middle of noise, which makes it very quiet and peaceful. The room are very clean but a recommendation is to change the shower because it is not very comfortable to use. The breakfast is very yummy, ask for the fruit and omelet with bread. Great stay at shantidevi!

Wonderful Wonderful

We stayed here for three lovely nights. Pabu, our host could not have been kinder or more helpful. The atmosphere in this little guesthouse was charming with all sorts of stylish artefacts and details adding to the atmosphere. Breakfast was fresh fruit with an omelette and toast - pretty standard but beautifully presented. It is only a few minutes by tuktuk From the centre of Bodhgaya and there were always vehicles handy. The room was all we needed and the bathroom was great. Pabu organised everything we needed including at driver for a days trip to Nalanda. My only complaint would be the mattresses which I would have liked to be softer!

This little gem is exactly what I seek in lodging - small number of rooms, off the Main Street with peace and quiet, and clean. It exceeds in all of those categories and more. An amazing breakfast is an option as well in a sitting area right out your bedroom door. You wont go wrong here.

A beautiful house where we stayed with a group or nine people. Very clean, very nice, beautifully decorated, with tremendous charm. The place was lovely and the brothers who looked after us were wonderful too. Papu went out of his way to make us comfortable and helped in arranging our further traveling. Himalay looked after us in his own way and became a very helpful and lovable guide on a trip to the river. If youre looking for rest in the middle of the business of Bodh Gaya and an oasis a short tuk tuk ride away from the Maha Bodhi temple, this is the place to go. Thanks again Papu and Himalay.
