    Besides the beautiful structure with a jungle-like garden, the difference is made by manager Bikash Singh. He will be extremely kind and professional with you and will quietly share (if you want) his culture and experience of Varanasi. In short, he will make you feel at home. All people who come to Varanasi should pass through here to understand Varanasi and India. Unforgettable. Thank you Bikash

  • I have been to many hotels but this place stands out because of the amazing behaviour of the staffs. All the staffs especially Sunil Bhaiya is extremely polite and friendly. Apart from this, the hostel is also very good. So if you are looking for a place to stay in Varanasi, I strongly recommend International Travellers Hostel.

    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 !
