The bed were quite hard and we got a bit chilly but I think we were just under prepared for the weather in January! Sona (the owner) was great and helped us organise a tour of the city and a sunrise boat ride which was incredible. Although it felt far out of the main hub of the backstreets (in reality only a ten minute walk or 100rupee cycle) we found it really nice to get away from the loud buzz of the traffic and felt more at home for this reason.

Sona and her family were great! So helpful!


Great place to stay, would definitely recommend!


Very good guesthouse. Sona is amazing with her hospitality and helps you do whatever you want to do. We did the sunrise boat, got the best massages in all of India from Manoj, and really enjoyed our stay.


it was great the way that the hostel treated us!!! we felt as home. it was cleaned and the best was the peaceful and relax that is inside the hostal. I truly recommend this hostel 100% even when the price is a bit more expensive that other hostal because the relax and cleanness , and it is only 10 min walking to the city center. Thanks so much for so lovely time!!!!!


Great secluded place with lovely owner's. Massage that was arranged by sona and given by manouch was really good. Would deffinatly stay again.

We loved Azure. Room was big, basic and clean and the bright decoration added character. It wasn't luxurious by any means but represented phenomenal value for the price. The guesthouse is a 15min walk from the centre in a peaceful, secure area. The family who run the place made our stay. They were charming, helpful and able to organise boat rides and onward travel. We did the cooking course they run and it was amazing, one of the best things we did Varanasi.
