I had a lovely stay at the Old Yogi Lodge. The room was very basic but clean and did the job! The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. They food was really nice and they would prepare it near enough any time during the day. Bhai, the manager, was very helpful and arranged some trips which were very enjoyable. The location of the hostel was good as it was only a short trip by auto rickshaw to The Ghats of The Ganges.

Was able to met other travelers! Good location and room for the money!
I stayed one night at the hostel and I enjoyed. It's well located, not far from main ghat and shops or main streets. The staff is very reliable, and a restaurant is also available into the hostel. They can provide you food at their restaurant, and transport if you need tuk tuk. It's a pity that free wi-fi is available only downstairs in the lounge and not in the rooms, and the connection can be very bad. Be careful to check out before 10.00am if not they will reclaim money for 1 day more.
Very nice hotel, everything was clean, the staff was good and there was a homely feel in the air... Just negative point is that it is not, at all, close to the ghats.
Free pickup from train station was great but it was on the premise of using the same rickshaw driver for any other trips, which was at a super inflated price. The room was spacious and relatively clean but the shower was filthy with no hot water. We tried to arrange a train ticket here but they requested 3000 rupees in order to get two tickets and we wouldn't see the tickets until possibly that evening! Very, very pushy owners with over-priced tours. Poor location - 45 minute walk to the ghats.
