Nice place where spend your time in Bodhgaya. Very friendly and kind people managing the guest house.You can find help from them about anything and they are very flexible. I really recommend this place.
If you are planning to stay there ask for attached bathroom and do not pay in advance all nights. I did it so no way to change hotel and I had to stay there for 2 weeks. It is possible to find cheaper and cleaner.
Welcome Guest House offers an excellent location; on the main road through town, steps away from the Mahabodhi Temple (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site around which the city of Bodhgaya was built), Bodhgayas main market which spreads out on either side of the Temple gates and immediately across the street from a long row of souvenir tents. Bodhgaya is one of Indias poorest areas and has also suffered from violence. As in much of India the building which houses Welcome Guest House was badly in need of upkeep from unattended abuse, moisture damage and lack of cleaning practices. In room 301 (most expensive style room) the toilet seat was broken, only one window had a screen, the curtains were thin enough to see through if one side was dark and the other lit. The ceiling fan was okay for December (an in-window air-conditioner was offered). The room lacked a closet with hangers, instead offered hooks on the back of the door. A large table, two straight back chairs, a small tv and two single beds furnished the room. We had to ask Pabu, who showed us to the room, to please remake the beds with clean linen; then ask for towels; then toilet paper each time he hung around supposedly waiting (unsuccessfully) for a tip with each extra. Once the room was supplied with clean linens, towels and toilet paper we felt the price provided reasonable value for our one night stay as well as having a place to store our luggage until we left for the overnight train from Gaya to Delhi. Before leaving we used a shared bathroom on one of the other floors it was dirty and the water from the sink went a down the drain, through a pipe which protruded only a short distance below the sink and then splashed onto the floor wetting the washers feet and legs. In the dark and grimy hallway, garbage piled up beside room doors was being search by mice. For one night it is do-able, however, with peddle/auto rickshaws costing so little, it may be more pleasant, if spending more time, to stay elsewhere and commute to the temples.
I like this place. maybe I stay this hotel next time. staff is good but good price of dormitory is hot,no AC. feel so good . this guest house is very near of Mahabodhi temple. it has good restaurant and shops available here and they offer good food , good test and good price. here i met Japanese guide Ashoka and he is very friendly and also when he has time he plays card game.
Contradictory to other reviews, our experience of the staff at Welcome Guest House was poor with very minimal customer service skills. The rooms were very basic and pretty dirty with our bathroom door completely rusted over. The main issue was the mice. We saw a mouse in our room pretty early on in the stay and went to speak to the owner. He assured us they've had no problems with them eating/chewing/nibbling anything and they were harmless. Woke up in the morning, with the mouse stood on top of my hairbrush on the windowsill, having climbed up my rucksack and already chewed its way through 2 bags and a pair of knickers! We were meant to stay 2 nights here but left after 1 night. The owner gave no apology and seemed in no way remorseful. When we asked why he let mice run free in his hotel, he said he couldn't kill them as he is Hindu. I know for a fact there are plenty of humane ways of getting rid of mice without having to kill them. Just think rodents really say something about the hygiene and cleanliness of a place. Also, the owner charges 30 rupees an hour for wifi... When we asked how he knew when we were online, he told us to just keep note...
