Really beautiful guest house type hostel in a great location near the train station. The owners were really nice and also picked us up from the airport for a small fee. The private double room is absolutely gorgeous and well worth the money. It has an amazing bathroom and very comfortable bed. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Thank you, Gareth, for your nice words! It makes us happy that you enjoyed your stay in our newly launched private room so much! It was great having you around, and I hope if you do come back to Varanasi one day, we can host you again. All the best to you!

Really nice hostel in a great location near the lakeside. Very modern and well built, its slightly lacking atmosphere due to not many social areas other than the rooftops. Very nice place though and great value, friendly staff.

FANTASTIC hostel. I can't say enough great things about this place, from the free water bottles to the amazing breakfast each morning where you meet fellow travellers I was really impressed. I also ordered an airport pick-up but missed my flight and arrived 2 hours later, they read my email and stayed all that time. I couldn't have asked for a nicer people to run the hostel and help me when needed. They even walked us to the bus transfer on our leaving day so we found it easily.100% Recommended!

Excellent hostel and probably the best in Delhi. Really good atmosphere and some nice social areas to chat with people. The roof terrace is also amazing and well worth sitting up there. Only real downside is the rules against drinking alcohol but the road house and my bar are just a couple of minutes walk away if you want that. Really enjoyed our stay here.

Instructions to find the place were impossible to use, especially after drinking all the way on the train from St Petersberg ;) But very cool hostel when we arrived. Nice social area and good staff. Partied a lot in Moscow and loved every minute of it. Staff recomended places to go and helped a lot even with travel plans. Spasiba Russia!

Very poor hostel, dirty, no social area. Check in was very fast an effecient but the only thing the staff told me all 3 days was to put my beer away that I was drinking outside on the seats. The room was smelly with the kitchens in there. Awful and cannot recommend.

Not the best hostel, very big and no fun at all. No real place to chill out and chat to other people only in the kitchen which to be fair was a very nice kitchen! Was very clean though and the staff were helpful.

This hostel is pretty good, the location is excellent(however the directions are out of date) and the way its decorated is very nice and unique. You do get the feeling its a nice apartment rather than a hostel though. The bathrooms could be improved by creating a new shower and the main living space needs some cushions to encourage people to sit their instead of the kitchen. The staff were nice but it was hard to work out who actually worked there as they have some long term residents I think.

I liked this hostel, its very clean and the staff were helpful. The atmosphere can be variable sometimes it was fun other times it was a little too clinical and quiet. The rooms are very nice with air conditioning and easy access with a security code to the front door. Special thanks to Dasha the teeny tiny blonde girl for sorting us reserved seats in the bar and a taxi to the airport, your a star :)

Loved this hostel from start to finish, this hostel is bang in the center of all the action. It was nice to be able to relax in the hostel with its secure rooms and chilled atmosphere. This is one of the first hostels that I have seen with a good satellite box with sky sports and movies available. Special thanks to the Ozzy guy working there who helped me sort my checkout with a world class hangover :)

Excellent hostel, facilities are top notch with some of the best shower facilities I have seen in a hostel. The social area is also very nice and easy to meet people. The events run by the hostel are also excellent and the hostel owner went out of his way to help us. Overall had a great stay here. 100% good job!! :)
