Wonderful people here at the Kautylia Society! The Ram Bhawan residency has a welcoming atmosphere that can make you feel at home immediately. Rooms are simple, but beautiful and clean, in a beautiful traditional building right above the ghat. The included breakfast and lunch is a simple, home-cooked style meal which is excellent as it's not so easy to find such clean and good food in the city. Thank you so much for the hospitality, greatly appreciated!

Stayed there for 3 nights; the location was somehow difficult to find (same as other parts in the old city of Varanasi), but once you know the place it is extremely close to the Ghats. What I value most was the exchange of information and understanding of the Indian/Hindi culture in this "hostel". It's not just a hostel but indeed home to two NGOs that help preserve and promote the traditional culture and educate the locals with basic hygiene and etc. The staff are extremely nice and helpful.

Good place and location. The staff is very helpful tho they don't speak much English. Few down side things: this place is VERY COLD and it's not ready to cope with low temperatures at all. Hot Shower lasted for two minutes only, and I am not exagerating. That's not good at all. Roof terrace was closed, no explanation given.

The staff here is very friendly and the food they cook is amazing. Located near the main Ghat. Only gripe is it is difficult to get to first time and they charge higher taxi pickup from airport. I would stay here again.

This is the best place that I stay in India.Good food,nice people. The house made special and beautiful.The roof top cafe is the best. Enjoy the quite in Varanasi.There ice coffee is what I want! It's very clean. Just the ground one shock me little bit. We arrive 5am so they arrange us stay in a room ground floor. The window just next to the street,so there is some mouse come in. It's something you can't avoid on the ground.But don't worry that's not the place you will stay!
