    The property is just next to a temple, about 100 yrs old property converted into a hostel. Owner is super chilled dude, he creates wonderful environment on rooftop on evenings. They have a newly opened cafe called dirty chai which is a nice place. Housekeeping could be a little better. All the staff were really helpful, one of my favourite place to stay in Varanasi.

    Really enjoyed the stay! Great view from top. Fantastic location once you get there but is a trek from the stations. Super easy to book boat tours etc. Employee called Sidd was brilliant!! Helped us book our train out when we had a shocker, gave us so a bunch of recommendations and some interesting info about the city as well as Indian culture upon our arrival. Most helpful person we have met during our whole trip!!

    I stayed here because the location is convenient near the ghats. The hostel is one of the dirtiest I've ever seen. After a couple of nights I decided to move to a different one. The only plus beside the location was the helpful Nepali guy at the reception.

    Good location close to ghats, but the neighborhood is very dirty. Simple but tasty breakfast. The cleanliness leaves a lot to wish for, dirty and badly maintained property. The staff wasn’t helpful when I told them about the mouse in our room, which probably got there because of full trash can left for days. Bad wifi. Building is water damaged, so don’t stay if you have respiratory issues. No locks on dorm rooms.
