You 'x' ITH

International Travellers’ Hostel (ITH) is an award-winning hostel that 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 the popular Varanasi Junction Railway Station (BSB).

Beautifully Equipped

#MadeforTravellers: We have made ITH beautiful, and we have equipped it with essential amenities that we think you will absolutely love. From free purified drinking water to reliable and fast Wi-Fi to Premium Vegan Toiletries – you name it. Oh, did we mention cosy yet?

Everyone who has known ITH from the beginning knows that we nothing but constantly evolve into a better and better version of our previous selves.

  • The ambience and greenery of the place is lovely. It's worth staying. The food and rooms are fairly priced and it's hygienic. Even the caretaker - vikas singh and his team are so caring and lovely. Would recommend to stay and experience the same.👍👍👍👍

    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.

    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.

  • 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 !
