A budget hotel, preferably for long stay. Room are spacious with huge balcony facing mountains. Roof top restaurant for plane and simple Indian food. Also provides daily Yoga and reiki Classes.it also provides different types of massage and heena.

Rishikesh is filled almost entirely with budget hotels, with a few mid-range thrown in for good measure. Good hotels can be found in main Rishikesh city however for backpackers Lakshman Jhula is popular spot, while Swarg Ashram is where the majority of the ashrams are located, and is a nice alternative. There's also a handful of accommodation options in High Bank.

It's wise to book ahead in the peak tourist season, and during the Kumbh Mela in neighboring Haridwar.
