The place is very nice and neat and it's a good escape from Varanasi's noise. It is very safe and calm and the food is very very good. A little bit away from the ghats but nothing a tuk tuk won't do. It is very convenient to be near the railway station. Bad thing was that the wi fi never worked properly, neither their computer.


Really great hostel. Super clean, great Wifi, great food/drinks (pricey though). It is a bit far from the main action, but it is nice to be able to escape all of that. The staff here is great, especially Manash, he will bend over backwards to make sure you are comfortable. He's almost too nice!


The guy in charge right now, Dada, is so helpful and amazing. Just went completely out of his way to help us with every little detail. The hostel is VERY hard to find down a back alley way, so we had trouble finding it with our tuktuk driver when our train arrived at midnight. I would advise arriving in the day. There are no lockers, but I didn't mind as it felt very secure and very much like a home stay. I loved it and would highly recommend it overall.

Dear Guest, Thank you for that lovely review! We are happy to know that the hostel and our staff met with your expectations. Further, I am glad that you found the place secure and did not mind the lack of lockers (which we expect to get installed really soon)! Apologies for the difficulty in finding us. Track record has shown that travellers who do not rely on tuk-tuk drivers, but instead follow our directions, find us with relative ease. Happy travels ahead! Cheers, The ITH Team
