    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!

    A Peaceful Heaven in Varanasi I stayed in the International Travellers' Hostel for three days after a first night living in the midst of the old city. I was more than delighted to discover this peaceful hostel. The place is calm, clean and you will immediately feel at home here.  I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to visit the chaotic city of Varanasi, while having a nice place to relax in the evening.I loved how the staff cared for me, the delicious food (and chai), and the peaceful and friendly atmosphere!
