In Birisiri, you can stay in the Tribal Cultural Institute Guesthouse or the YMCA Rest House. Academy Guesthouses is, to some, hard to take, but the YMCA rest house is easy. There is one three-person room and two two-person rooms in the YMCA Rest House. Rent for a three-person room is 150 Bangladeshi Taka (BDT), and rent for each two-person room is BDT 100. Now, one U.S. dollar is equal to 60 BDT.
Hotel Joba, Gulshan, Nirala, and Hotel Susang are on the other side of the river Someswari in Susang Durgapur Bazar. Single-, double-,and three-person rooms are available in these hotels. Rent range is BDT 50 to 200. One should know that there is no a/c in this area. Fans are available.
