We stayed in a non-AC 2 person room with attached bathroom. Clean comfortable rooms, running water and wifi work most of the time. Nestled in a maze of small alleys, Suraj has an outstanding location, located within 5 mins walk from the burning ghat, main ghat, kashi temple and blue lassi shop. A decent rooftop view of the Ganges. This is guesthouse and not a backpacker hostel, do not expect a common room or lively atmosphere to meet other travellers.


The family were really welcoming and extremely helpful and friendly. The guesthouse was in a fantastic location, really neat to the main ghat and the Golden Temple. They were able to organise a great boat trip for as soon as we arrived and Suraj have a good walking tour around the city (which you will need or you will get lost!) the guesthouse had a great atmosphere and lovely rooftop overlooking the Ganges. I would stay here again; we had a great time!


Excellent value for money, location and service for this family guesthouse. We had a clean, quiet and well furnished double room with fan and private bathroom for 400 INR (low season). Good value laundry service. The Ganja is literally 3 minute walk. The guest house is not reachable in rickshaw, like all hotels in this very popular area for tourists. The manager, Prabhu, is very friendly. He gave good touristic advice and helped us e.g. changed a broken note for us. We definitively recommend!

I love this place! Comfortable, nice people, nice view on the rooftop, kind and helpful family. Thank you


Great stay. Managers were very friendly and went out of their way to arrange stuff to do. It's a bit hard to find the first time, but once you figure it out, the location is great, and the view from the roof is wonderful. Tasty food too.
