    This is a top quality international standard Hostel. The tours they do are excellent. Also I loved the skilled deep tissue massage they provide at the HostelHostel for 200 Rupees.

Cancellation Policy

This property has a 1 day cancellation policy.
Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay, unless otherwise stated below (see 'Things to Note' information).

Things to Note

1. Please note that the rates quoted here are for boarding charges including our simple yet unlimited complimentary breakfast on per person per night basis inclusive of all taxes. 2. Our check-in time is 13:00 Hrs. and check-out time is 10:00 Hrs. We follow a 100% advance policy at the time of check-in, which means that you will have to make 100% advance payment for the stay booked, at the time of check-in. We also collect a fully refundable linen deposit of INR 300 at the time of check-in. This deposit is returned to you at the time of check-out up on handing over the linen back at the reception. This is to ensure non-intrusive housekeeping in the dorms. 3. For guests arriving at the hostel before check-in time, early lounging facility is available from 06:00 Hrs to 13:00 Hrs for a fee of INR 100. This gives access to our simple yet unlimited breakfast and the many common areas to relax before check-in into the room. For guests arriving before 6 AM, we advise the guest to book the previous night, to ensure that you get a good rest. 4. We experience 4-5 hours of power cut everyday (spread out across the day), usually not even noticeable. We have power backup for all our lights, fans, charging points, computers and coolers. However, the Air-conditioning and water heaters do not work during a power outage. Power outages in the city are erratic. Sometimes we have been pleasantly surprised with no power cuts throughout the day vs. very rare occasions when we have had power outages for hours together. This is something that is out of our control and we would like to share this with you upfront so that it does not become a point of concern during a power outage. Having said this, our hostel is extremely well ventilated even during a power cut. 5. We don't encourage more than 4 guests from one group to stay in the same room, as we would like our residents to mingle with everyone at the hostel. In case of exceptions, please do notify us by email at the time of booking. In case of a group of 5 or more guests checking in together, the hostel requires a 50% non-refundable advance payment to be transferred to the hostel bank account (available on request) to be able to confirm the booking. Please note that normal cancellation policy, does not apply to group bookings of 5 or more guests. 6. Also, we have a long stay offer for guests residing for long duration, whereby you Pay for 6 Nights, Get 1 Additional Night Free or Pay for 12 Nights, Get 3 Additional Nights Free or Pay for 18 Nights, Get 6 Additional Nights Free or Pay for 24 Nights, Get 10 Additional Nights Free. Guests are encouraged to avail this offer by quoting the same at the time of check-in. 7. Please note that no Varanasi or adjacent area residents will be allowed to stay at the property. All Indian citizens must carry a government authorized address Identification proof to be able to check-in at the property. All foreigners must carry and present their original passport along with a valid visa at the time of check-in. For Pakistani citizens, an additional residence permit letter from the High Commission of Islamabad is also mandatory for check in. 8. Please note that only residents are allowed within the hostel complex. Guests can only be attended to at the reception area for short periods only.
