    I had such a nice time in Brick Lane hostel. The place has a very happy and easygoing atmosphere. Rahul is an amazing person. He is always up to help you. I highly recommend. If you need anything or if you are not happy with something the staff will try to do anything to improve. Assi Ghat is only two minutes walking, you have the option to join in morning or evening pujas on ganges and morning yoga (or in ganges or on hostel!). I loved this hostel! Thank you guys!

    Thoroughly enjoyed staying at brick lane hostel! In particular, my friends and I spent time on the rooftop hangout which had a really fun atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Varanasi. It was at the start of my trip and has set a high bar for other budget hostels.

    This one is one of those hostels that need the income of more guests to really start growing. It has a lot of potential not just because of its great location even though because the owner works hard, fair and tries to make something out of it. I was happy to stay there and experience a hostel in its diaper. The cleanliness is one thing that has to be improved but after all it’s a $2 hostel and worth it to stop by!

    Not the best. There's definitely similar price hostels that are cleaner. Maybe don't put beds next to the toilet room windows

    Located in a quieter area of Varanasi but a bit far away from main area. Beds were very uncomfortable and too small for even my size (5ft4/167cm). Indians in my room woke me up throughout the night. Man at front desk spoke little English and kitchen staff was very slow. Breakfast was the best I have had in India but you generally had to wait 45 min for your food and your chai another 15 because it was forgotten. Staff had dog and its poo was not picked up. Nice big and spacious roof top.

    Very cheap "what you see is what you get" hostel. Weird atmosphere and the guy working there was acting kind of weird and uninterested (like he used something). Rooms were below average and the beds were very hard. We left after 1 night.

    world's most non-secure, smelly, dirty hostel. It was in a good location near Assi Ghat however our room, though we ordered an en-suite private room, had outside access to another room. It also smelled like stale damp and had wet tissue. We woke to hear a girl begging someone to give her laptop back which was stolen while she slept. The bbq cooking area looked like anyone who ate there would end up sick. So unhygienic, we checked out the next morning and moved to another hotel.

    Baffled as to how this has such high reviews. Staff are either nowhere to be seen or completely disinterested, unhelpful, totally disorganised. Constantly being asked when we were leaving, asked to pay again (we paid all nights upfront, unfortunately, or else we would’ve left after the first night). Security is almost non existent (they do have some small lockers). We stayed 1 night in Moustache after this and it was a breath of fresh air, just 1 minutes walk away.
