In modern India dharmashalas can be like star hotels and also budget hotels.
You'll get all facilities here depending on the Dharmashala you choose.
Generally, they don't allow non-veg food, alcohol, or even smoking in the rooms.

Please feel free to leave a donation if you do stay in a Dharamshala. It is initially a rest-house for pilgrims, but (from my experience) they will still accept anybody.

I slept only once in a Dharamshala and it was a beautiful experience! I've also eaten in many of those, all the time excellent. But my experience was amazing because of the people that take care of the place. It really believe it is best if you speak a little hindi. Everytime I left a good donation (for food or shelter) because I got the feeling that those people give everything they have for the pilgrims, their heart and their time. But I would not stay there for a month or so to save money, as I am not a pilgrim who needs a shelter.

This was my experience! Scusez my french!

Depend upon dharmshala if you ready to pay little amount, care taker can arrange bed or blanket fan etc. Local auto or rickshaw driver may know about good low cost accommodations

Dharmshala normally allowed for 3 days. You can also stay in Sikh Gurudwara.
