Real testimonials from real guests

  • 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!

    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.👍👍👍👍

    Best place to stay in Varanasi. You can chill out in the garden in the evening with camp fire. Well maintained place and friendly staff. Special mention to "Sunil". Everything you need is within 4 km radius. Definitely going back there.

  • Why was it excellent? Because it is a home away from home. Such lovely people, the staff, especially Mr. Sunil and Mr. Rajesh. They take care of you as if they are your family. I am going to visit soon again.

    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!

    Felt like home😊 The staff was very helpful and cooperative in every means And also the staff were taking full responsibility in making the stay cheerful and asking constantly if there is such any issues in our stay The garden was beautiful and we were allowed to have vibe over there whole night The rooms were clean well spacious. Either you are travelling solo or in group, u will have fun ultimately I only wish one thing that as the winters have begin, if they could provide bonfire in garden It would be 🔥

Life In Mystical Kashi

Ringing temple bells and stretches of river banks crowded with devotees – boating on river Ganga in Varanasi is an enchanting experience.
