In this first article of the series – Preferred Hotels or Accommodation options in Leh – Ladakh, I am enlisting down some of the preferred places to stay in Leh – Ladakh which are cheap and very economic. If you are looking for a decent, clean and comfortable but cheap or very economic options of stay in Leh – Ladakh then you can refer the list of below guest houses or hotels compiled after reading various resources/reviews of many people over Internet mainly reading IndiaMike and BCMT forums (of course, I cannot stay in all of them :lol:).

Most of these places are ideal to stay even for long time, say months and people indeed have stayed for months in many of them. However, if you are looking for an exceptional in-room service, finest linen, satellite TVs, Internet facilities etc. in a hotel and that too for a price range of Rs 200 – 500 then you must be kidding me, am I right ;)… Well, you may find one or two such services too in the below guest houses but no certainty.

LAST UPDATED: 9th Feb 2015
The article has been updated to match the current prices of most of these hotels or campsites or homestays for the year 2015.

You can check the location of these guest houses which are near by each other at the wikimapia link here.

  1. Hi Dheeraj,

    Is August considered a peak season? Because I am in Leh from Aug 9- 18 and I have not yet booked any accommodation as I will be doing a bike trip ( Most common itinerary by air). Even though I have my itinerary, I am still thinking If I can directly book for accommodation when i reach there, because my itinerary might change die to unseen circumstances. What would you recommend? Thank you

    • Hi Ranga,

      From June to September, it is the only season of Ladakh. However, in the whole season as well, if you are OK with some basic accommodation or home stay type of stay, OK to search a bit here and there, you should not have any issues at all.
