Real Guest Reviews

  • We had a wonderful time. We arrived very late, we came from Nepal by bus. We made the booking around 8pm via WhatsApp messages with the boss and were warmly welcomed on our arrival at 11pm. We had a small room but it was perfect for us all after a long day of travel. The next day we moved to another much bigger room, which freed in the meantime. Breakfast is amazing !! Try out Fruit muesli. Perfect to start your day. They offer vegan alternatives, their toiletries are also vegan. They are all very nice and helpful, which was appreciated by us and our kids (3&4 yo). It is located near the station, which is quiet convenient but not noisy though. Perfect !

    Best place to stay in Varanasi. You can chill out in the garden in the evening with camp fire. Well maintained place and friendly staff. Special mention to "Sunil". Everything you need is within 4 km radius. Definitely going back there.

  • One of the friendliest places to stay if you find yourself in Banaras. Manager Sunil being the very kind of person you wish to see at a front desk. A very well maintained place with great ambiance very close to the cantt station and the ghats. Do book yourselves a bunk if you wish you meet amazing people at this amazing hostel!

    Hands down one of the best trips of my life, and The Hosteller gets all the credit. The property was cozy and quaint, the staff was extremely warm and made you feel right at home, and the energy screamed Varanasi through and through. Best part? The fellow travellers I met. I brought back new friends and life long memories with me, all thanks to The Hosteller. Cherry on top of the cake was definitely the hostel Manager, Bikas Singh!

    The ambience and greenery of the place is lovely. It's worth staying. The food and rooms are fairly priced and it's hygienic. Even the caretaker - vikas singh and his team are so caring and lovely. Would recommend to stay and experience the same.👍👍👍👍
