Friendly, clean hostel... Out of busy part of Varanasi, walking distance to ghats.


We really enjoyed our stay in the hostel, we just found out later that other people in the guesthouse had the same flight and we took seperate taxis to the airport. The guy at the reception could have told us about it that we shared a taxi, but that obviously would have been less money for them. :-)


The charge for the night river boat was too much! The kitchen staff were lovely. Shame the inernet kept dropping out.


Good Place, location is a bit outside the center, but you get a nice view on the river from the roof top restaurant. definitely worth spending a little more here


I wouldn't recommend staying anywhere but at Rahul in Varanasi. Full view of Ganga Ma from our bed. Airy rooms. Very quiet at night. A bit of a walk to main ghat area or autorickshaw but its great to have a bit of space from all the busy areas.

Nice enough room with good food from upstairs. Place is having work done so some construction happened while we were there. It's away from Assi ghat! about 10 minute walk so wasn't busy but the walk was hard, dodging the poo! Although it was down some windy roads with not much light, we didn't feel unsafe walking back at night.


Excellent and very quiet guestt house in the amazing Varanasi
