Firstly i have never had to pay for a stay before i check in. The very long dingy walk to the hostel was a put off and when i requested a shorter stay and even paid for 2nights in an upgraded room but left after 1night stay the owner insisted that i pay for 5nights inspite of giving him enough notice to open the booking!!! At the time of check out not only did he Not reimberse me for the extra night and booking amount he started playing blackmail and cursing me and my mother!definitely a Never!

It is a beautiful old home right on the river Ganges. We had a corner room which was a bit noisy from the dogs and the men talking outside in the evening. It is probably noisy in most of Varanasi, but perhaps the rooms upstairs at the back might be quieter. We had a lovely view.

The owner is money orientated ! Had a terrible experience ! We reached the hotel at 9pm and were really tired .. The owner kept us in hold until he could sell his - Paid Guide services to us .. The breakfast which was suppose to be free had only eggs, since we are vegan we were informed any other simple snacks would cost us money .. I had already received 3 reminders to avail their taxi services .. In short, horrible experience staying with this money driven owner . Please do not book this place

Positive - Amazing location, they organized pickup from the airport for us, staff were super friendly and helpful all the time and they were trying to solve any problem that we had. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. On the not-so-good - The bathroom sink didn't have a 'water trap' so it didn't smell that good even though it was very clean. They tried to fix this by putting a couple of mothballs in the sink (which seems to be common practice).
