  • Great hostel, a/c rooms, fresh, clean, a bit pricey but still ok.

    One of Varanasi's oldest hostel.This hostel's architectural style is quite unique. The rooms are kept immaculately clean and sanitary. The beautiful garden in front of the hostel is the main attraction. I've never seen a hostel with a garden like this. You can relax in the garden, which is a relatively quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The location is close to a railway station and is only a short walk away. Sunil, the manager, is a wonderful person who will assist you at all times. Inside the hostel, only vegetarian foods are permitted. Only from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. will the air conditioning be turned on. Hot water is accessible at all times for bathing. There is also a kitchen attached to the hostel.Parking space is available for bikes and one or two cars.Even in the early morning hours, share autos will be available from the vicinity to the Ghats. It was a very good experience staying here . I would recommend ITH to anyone visiting Varanasi

    The staff was very cooperative and helpful. They made the stay more like a home kind. The place was absolutely clean and hygienic. They served the most delicious masala chai. Overall a fantastic stay during this pandemic.

    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!
