Cheap areas to stay in Bengaluru

From hostels immersed in the pandemonium of the city to homey guesthouses with air conditioning and mod cons, budget travelers have oodles to choose from in Karnataka's capital. Check out the 2-star hotels around Freedom Park or you could opt to bed down between the twinkling electronics stores and street food of MG Road – there are plenty of comfy options here. HAL Old Airport Road also has its own clutch of acclaimed places to stay on a shoestring, each with great links to the city and the departure lounges alike.

Close to MG Road and the up-and-coming Victoria Layout area, Hotel Vellara has everything you could need from a budget accommodation option. It's clean, boasts free WiFi throughout, offers a filling breakfast, and has air conditioning to boot. Close behind is the Hotel Nandhini, rising from the KV layout on Bengaluru's south side in walls of shimmering glass. The suites inside are spacious and homey. And then comes the delightful Nandhana Hometel, which fuses home-style comforts with unexpected luxuries, like doormen, marble-clad lobbies, air con, and even a business center.

Where to find cheap food in Bengaluru

Whether it's a ladleful of tikka masala, a freshly-fried dosa doused in butter, a Mysore chaat, or a baath rice medley, you can rest assured that the treats of spice-scented Food Street won't disappoint – and that goes for both the taste buds and the wallet. Other cheap eats exist in Malleshwaram, coming in the form of family-owned tiffin houses that serve up thali platters of curry and dal and garnishes atop a plantain leaf. Or, there's the intersection of Brigade Road and MG Road, where oodles of bargain kitchens can be found.

Cheap things to do in Bengaluru

Temples abound across the sprawling, multicultural metropolis of Bengaluru, and for the most part – aside from the small votive offerings folk are asked to deposit at the shrines – are completely free to visit. Head for the colossal cow statues of the Bull Temple, or case out the ancient, incense-scented halls of the Dodda Ganapathi nearby – one of the oldest temples in the city. After a spot of shrine hopping, why not unwind with a bout of meditation in the city's Buddhist center, or hit the weaving walkways around beautiful Ulsoor Lake for a glimpse at Karnataka's fabled outdoor beauty? Shopping amidst the factory outlets of Marathahalli means bagging some serious bargains on retail clothing, jewelry, and other locally produced goods. And in the evening, there are oodles of cheap cinemas screening flamboyant Bollywood flicks, not to mention the taste-bud-tingling dishes of Food Street to savor.

Cheap ways to get around Bengaluru

Bengaluru is a living, breathing Indian metropolis, which means there's always going to be an auto-rickshaw handy, no matter where you are in town. Always be sure to insist on meter charging for these, and expect to pay a little more for heavy luggage, multiple stops, and rides after 10pm – the legal increase is 50% of the base fare. Alternatively, buses are everywhere in Bengaluru. These are cheap and often the best option for exploring places further afield, like Ulsoor Lake or the Lalbagh gardens.
