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 !

    Friendly and helpful staff. Good atmosphere, backpackers and all. Might get some tips for your next destination. Not a party place. Rather quiet and tranquil. Nice garden to chill (if you don't get biten by mosquitoes). The private room was so nice. Well decorated. Lots of details that made us feel like home. Big and clean bathroom. Water temperature/pressure good. We even got toiletries and all! Recommended by @lifetimetravelmates !

    I truly loved staying at this Hostel. Everything was so perfect at this here. The first thing I look at any resident is bathroom and here I got the best from my all journeys. Another is free mineral water, next thing is hostel is so clean. Better bed. Everything was perfect and I would love to stay here again if I visit Varanasi. One thing I'm missing are the staffs, they were so helpful and humble. Loved interacting with them. Bathroom, bed, Room, Water facility, Garden, Building, Location, Staffs, etc, all these at a good price is so so so good. I would extremely recommend everyone to stay here.
