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.

Wasn't impressed. The bistro was overpriced, sheets weren't clean or changed between new guests, plates of food were left on the ground overnight and still there in the morning. An hour away from the airport and 20+ minutes to the main temple and Ganges. Staff member was helpful but seemed a bit condescending and rude at times. Atmosphere between other guests was nice though. Overall would not stay again though.

A nice place close to the train station but off the main drag (so the noise is minimal). Ideal for meeting other travellers, the facilities are fine and the staff are friendly. My only gripe might be that it's a little far from the ghats, but it's only Rs100 for a rickshaw and it's well placed to go visit Sarnath. Special thanks to Vikash for being so friendly and hospitable. He will probably challenge you to a game of chess, but don't let his unusual style fool you, he's actually very good!

Nice little hostel. Friendly owner - had a couple of games of chess with him! They do food and breakfast. It's conveniently located for the train station. Met a couple of other travellers.

The staff were very welcoming, kind and helpful. What makes this place so special is the staff to be honest. The place is a bit far from the main ghat but all types of rickshaw are always readily available on the street to take you there. We ordered from their kitchen the first day we arrived. The food was good but their chai was an A+. Overall a decent place for a short stay.

Good hostel with friendly & helpful staff & located only a 5 minute walk from the railway station. The main ghats are a short tuk tuk ride away. The hostel is down a quiet alley off the main road & has a lovely wildlife-friendly garden with birds, butterflies & a family of monkeys.

Really good place with a great little restaurant attached. A bit far from the ghats but on a secluded street that's away from the craziness. Definitely recommend if Varanasi

We stayed one night and really liked it. It's away from noisy, busy, hectic downtown which we preferred. Close to both the train and bus stations to easily walk to/from.

The staff are amazing and will do anything for you particularly Samar and Rajesh. The food is great and is available pretty much whenever you want it. It is 5 mins away from the Ghats in a tuk-tuk which is perfect for a bit of peace and only costs 100rs to get down to the ghats. They offer free purified water and even wash everything in purified water and also offer a cheap laundry service. Read more on our blog: http://www.hitchedhikers.co.uk/
