Manash Patel, the Manager, was fantastic. Extremely friendly and helpful. A real asset for the hostel. Manash was always very approachable and he was always willing to to a little bit extra to help. Manash really helped to make my stay at ITH very enjoyable. Look after this guy, he is a wonderful manager.0

Good enough hostel; the staff got up at 2am to let me in after my train was severely delayed and helped with tour information and organizing transport. There are security lockers provided and the hostel itself is locked up at night. Only real problems were the rooms all interconnect so people wandering around can be annoying and that the hostel is quite some distance from everything except the train station. Still easy to get around Varanasi so not much of an issue.
