Very bad experience. We informed the hostel of our late arrival and the guy said no room available, hopefully I kept the voucher from hostel booker. The manager kept our original passports in his office and when we check out he was outside so we had to wait 45 minutes... There is a german guy very rude who work with this hostel, he said check out time is at 10 am but on hostel booker is it at 12 AM Never come back in this place for sure


When i arrived in Varanasi, i expected a lots of scams. And actually, when i went to Marilyn guesthouse, i discovered a very clean hostel, comfortable room and really honest owner who was cheerful and gave me many tips to visit the city. He also recommended to use a boat during 2 hours on the Ganga (and no 1 hour) to see more things. Actually it was true.So thank you to the owner for his help, smile and warm welcome. It's not common to find a such guesthouse in India. I definitely recommend it.
