Made for You

Hostel made with You in mind from the very start

International Travellers’ Hostel (ITH) is an award-winning hostel which was set up by a traveller for other travellers. From the beginning we have maintained our integrity to the spirit of independent and adventure travel. We’ve combined the best of a modern and yet elegant backpackers’ hostel—where you can meet like-minded travellers—with the warmth of a homestay giving you the opportunity to acquaint with our ‘Banarasi’ culture.

The hostel is situated just minutes away from Varanasi’s main train station – Varanasi Junction Railway Station (BSB).

  • 5 star review  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!

    4 star review  Great place to stay in Varanasi. You get to meet amazing fellow travellers, friendly hosts and staff and good amenities. The ghats are about 3-4 kms away from the place and can be easily reached with share autorickshaws

  • 5 star review  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 !
