The hotel looked a little run down when we pulled up to it, however we were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room. It was spotlessly clean and very modern, it looked as though it had been newly decorated and the bathroom looked new. The roof top restaurant was a nice place to chill, overlooking the Ganges. Good location as staying near varanasi station would have been too busy.
Great hostel a bit far from the center with all the other ones but with a really nice view on the Gange ! Really nice and cheap boat trips organised threw the hostel. Really friendly cook serving good and costless dishes !
Very friendly and anxious staff helping you to plan a perfect stay in varanasi even if you don't have much time. Different river cruise tours are available. Even short-term airport pick up was no problem for the hotel to arrange. Aircondition deluxe double room is really recommendable, also its nice interior. Rooftop bar and restaurant offers a nice atmosphere with its view on the Ganges.

The rooms in the hostel are excellent but the roof top restaurant left a little to be desired in terms of decor. That said, there are great views of the river from up there. The location isn't central but it's close enough to the ghats to walk as long as you don't mind a half hour or so of walking each way. The staff were excellent and overall we were happy with our stay. Varanasi is a busy and loud city so being slightly away from it all can be a positive.
Enjoyed the stay. Owner, Rahul, is very helpful. Very peaceful although rooms were expensive considering ours did not have air-con. Needed it after the bustle of Varanasi. Need to make better use of the roof terrace! Overall a very good choice. The two boys on duty were brilliant and worked their socks off!
LOVED this guest house. Wished wifi was stronger and our room was always a fiery inferno- but AMAZING guest house- maybe the best in India. Good cheap food, lovely family! Best place in Varanasi!
The rooftop view at this hostel is worth the stay. It is about a 25 minute walk to the main Ghats, or a 10 minute tuc-tuc. The rooms are newly renovated and clean and you can get A/C. We really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse and would recommend it if you are staying in Varanasi.
