Property Description

Namastē!

International Travellers’ Hostel is Varanasi’s and north India’s first hostel of its kind. Staying true to the spirit of backpacking and adventure travel, we have evolved to offer the widest variety of accommodations equipped with a range of modern facilities. Combined with friendly service, we are here to offer you an unmatched hostelling experience.

Our family-run hostel is located in our historical house owned by our family for over 5 generations. Once serving as the summer house of the Queen of Nepal, it later fell under British reign, to be eventually auctioned off to one of our great grandfathers. Today this multicultural home is a modern Youth Hostel offering you a beautiful relaxing space and an opportunity to meet other travellers.

Our aim is to facilitate your time in India by offering you the little things that make all the big differences on a trip. We want to offer you something that lasts longer than a mere journey – we want you to have everlasting experiences!

For the love of your taste buds we also offer a healthy and diverse 'ITH Bistro' food & drinks menu (Indian and western) catering from early morning till late at night. We prepare almost everything fresh with ingredients from the local market. Our recipes are toned-down to meet the 'non-Indian' taste buds, but of course we can spice things up for your real India adventure ;) Our latest addition is the Muesli Bar – eat a bowlful or as much as you can of your favourite cereals & fruits.

We offer a gorgeous Superior Double Bedroom with en-suite bathroom and garden view, a Basic Double Bedroom with en-suite bathroom, spacious air-conditioned Superior Mixed & Female Dorms featuring single beds, a Basic Mixed Dorm with bunk beds and a Tent for 2 Persons which includes yoga mats & pillows for sleeping. For small families or a group of friends, our Cottage is a great choice.

In order to offer you a comfortable stay we provide a whole array of facilities like free Wi-Fi (on all floors), unlimited supply of free purified drinking water, a fully equipped modern kitchen (vegetarian only), bathrooms with 24x7 hot & cold showers, lockers, a cozy common room with TV, DVDs, iPod dock, books, card & board games, a desktop computer and elegant Bistro seating areas to chill & enjoy your meals. A washing machine is there for your convenience at a nominal surcharge of Rs.50 per use. There is also a beautiful green garden with outdoor furniture and a swing, as well as a huge rooftop to enjoy our peaceful location.

We are looking forward to welcome you in one of the world's oldest living cities!

Latest Review

" The hostel is located close to the main train and bus stations in varanasi which is handy if arriving this way, it is quite far from the main areas of interest in the city meaning you have to pay for transport everyday. The hostel itself is very clean and seems safe as there are staff on hand 24-7 although there were no lockers in the 4 bed dorm we stayed in. The place is very relaxed if you want to chill in the living room but lacks a bit of atmosphere. Also the food available is expensive. "
