RE: Hotels in Gaya
There are many hotels in Bodh Gaya of all price range but i stayed in Tibetan Monestary when i visited there.If you stand at front of MahaBodhi Temple then on your left hand is Bodh Gaya village and on right hand side is a series of Monestaries, so the very first monestary is a Tibetan Monestary and there you can find very good room with attach bath room with in 200/-Rupees.In the same Monestary premise back side is provision of small hostel rooms where young monks used to stay for thier reasearch work.These rooms are available at Rs.60/-only,very basic room(Opposite to Kaal Chakra maidan).
On the other side of Phalgu River which might be dry now days there is village Sujata and a beautiful temple worth visit.

Travel Tips for Bodh Gaya
Think twice when dealing with beggars
Bodhgaya and the mahakalla caves are pilgrim places, so a LOT of beggars will gather there. Families send their elderly and children there, because they can´t work otherwise. Now dont give milkpowder to mothers with children, the´ll just sell it back to the shop-owner, and don´t buy sweets for kids, rather organize some proper food, or give them money. They´ll spend it for better stuff than chocolate, because it´s too expensive for them. Some beggars there are so fastidious, that they wont take your 25 peisas (or less)!
If you want to increase your good karma by giving money to beggars, change some papermoney into coins infront of the main stupa. You´ll make a slight loss of course, but you´ll have plenty of coins. They are sold in small plasic bags. If you start throwing paper money at them, you´ll be surounded by dozens of beggars within seconds, and won´t be left alone for the rest of your stay!
