Directions to the Hostel | ITH Stays
Do not let anyone tell and make you believe that this hostel does not exist or that it has closed down or a similar bamboozle! This is a very common scam in India. Tuk-Tuk and taxi drivers receive commission from other places and hence they may try to dupe you into going there instead. Ignore everything else and follow our directions below.
If relevant, tell your driver (insist!) to take you to Vidyapeeth University (विद्यापीठ विश्वविद्यालय) on Vidyapeeth Road (विद्यापीठ रोड), NOT Banaras Hindu University (BHU). It is a common mistake. Insist!

You are brave for taking a bus! In this case you will most likely be dropped off either at Varanasi Bus Stand or in the vicinity of Varanasi Junction Railway Station. The best thing would be to find the train station and then follow the above directions.
Haha, we kid you not. It’s quite doable (at least from nearby cities like Prayagraj). This is a very unlikely scenario, but just in case you do arrive on a boat, let us know and in honour of your adventurous spirit we’ll pick you up for free! Make sure to de-board at Assi Ghat.
Prayagraj was previously known as Allahabad.
