It's hard to leave a review for third place when the owners are so earnest, but the place has nothing going for it. Given the number of positive reviews, which I followed to get here I felt it is over-rated. I haven't stayed elsewhere in Varanasi, so maybe it's relatively ok value, but compared with the ten other places I've stayed in the north this place doesn't measure up.
Very peaceful, located walking distance away from the ghats so you can get a decent night's sleep. The family that own the guest house are very friendly and helpful when it comes to what to see and do in Varanasi and when arranging onward travel. For the price, you can't go wrong.
Nicest guesthouse ever! Family-run biz where dad and son do everything they can to make sure you have a pleasant stay in chaotic Varanasi. Great location outside the ghats; it's near the main road (Luxa Road), so it's accessible to many shops and 2 nice restaurants, Silver Spoon and a place inside nearby PDR mall (both non-veg), and only 10 min walk to Dasaswamedh Ghat. Staff will help you arrange transportation services, money exchange, laundry, and more for good prices. Clean room too!
I'm really happy I found this hostel! The family that runs the guest house was fantastic - I found them very trustworthy and helpful, and I really felt welcome. They gave great advice on where to go, and especially on what things should cost. It really helped me out! I will definitely be recommending Sagar Guest House to all of my friends who visit Varanasi.
Wonderful stay. I stayed two days with my girlfriend. This is a peaceful place in the crowded and challenging Varanasi. The staff, father and son, are very helpful and interested by their guests. As per the location, the guest house has the advantage to be between the ghats and other interesting spots (monkey temple, BHU...). Restaurants and pharmacies near by.

Staffs were really friendly and will help you with their best effort. Showed me all the directions and price for tuktuk. Spacey room, nice hot shower and very clean. Highly recommended at very reasonable price. Location is a bit of a distance from Ganga river but you will appreciate the calmness of that.
The owners here will make sure that your experience in Varanasi is a good one. They are extremely personable, kind, and genuinely interested in your experience at their hotel. Ask them any question you have about India, and they are sure to give you a valuable answer. They will help you with logistics and the planning of your India trip. The rooms are spacious with nice little balconies, the food (made upon request) is delicious and very homey. Homemade chai as you sit on your balcony is great.
The Hostel is at 10min walk from the main gat, it's not far at all and the neighberhood is really nice, not so loud and full of tourists. The value for the money is ok, do not expect a hot shower. The manager is really nice and helpful.
our stay at Sagar Guest house was very pleasant! It was money well spent. We recieved excellent help from the owner, both in what to do in Varanasi and transport to and from the hostel! They are very friendly and charmig. Cheap, clean and safe.

The owner is a great man,easy to talk to,and he shared a lot of methods to make us more like an Indian in Varanasi.The place is near Ganga so we can visit it within 10 mins walk.And the price is so worth it for two bed room.Only thing you need to concern is to bring some mosquito spray.Coz you gonna need them in India.
