    The location is great, being located just a few steps from the river. The staff was very accommodating, making us delicious fried rice and helping us book a nice river boat tour. We would recommend arriving in daylight because it is a bit tricky navigating the small streets in the dark. The only thing to note would be that the street sounds carry into the room at night, but I would assume that would also be the case at other accommodations nearby. Overall, a very nice place to stay!

    Definitely the best hostel in the holy city of Varanasi. Located in the heart of 'real' Varanasi, literally a minute walk to holy Ganges and very close to all other famous historical sites. Staff is tremendous in their service and behaviour, they'll go over the top to provide you with any extra needs and make sure that your stay is comfortable. Amazing 'Urban Jungle' rooftop to chill and spend some quality time.Good food which is freshly prepared by an amazing chef. Best stay in that price range

    The hostel is located just nearby the ghats . They have such tasty food at their own Shiva cafe . There is a rooftop area , where you get to hangout with lots of cool people staying at the hostel . They also provide guided tour & boat ride . After seeing so many reviews about the owner of the hostel , Koko is a super genuine guy . He helped me in booking my return tickets as well . I just have one regret . I wish i could have stayed for long .

    The weekend away trip that i had with my friends here in Varanasi was great, soothing and relaxing, thanks to good vibes hostel. The atmosphere here is really relaxing and soothing. The rooms are nice, food is good and so are the people. The hosts are amazing people and so were the other travellers we got to meet here.

    Overall the hostel is great. It’s located in cool laneways and not far from the main ghats. Has a cafe underneath which serves delicious food and the service is friendly. However, most of the time their is only one person working the desk so everything is a bit slow because they have to maintain both the hostel and the cafe by themselves but this did not affect our stay too much. Enjoyed the sunset boat tour the hostel provides as well.
