About Varanasi: "There are so many things to learn and unlearn in this city, about life, death and everything in between, just walk around the streets and the ghats, every time you’ll see and experience something that will amaze your mind and soul. This city reveals reality, it does not bring new wonders into the scope of vision but enables to see what is already there."

Love and light
Koko

    I think this hostel is currently under a lot of construction/refurbishment so the cafe area closed whilst we were staying there. No problem as there’s plenty of other cafe/restaurant/street foods along hippie lane. Dorms we’re comfy and clean and AC was good! Staff are friendly and the location was great.

    Seeing as the hostel has only been around for 6 months, we were really impressed with the quality of the hostel and cannot recommend it enough! The staff were very helpful and friendly creating a really comfortable and positive atmosphere.

    I had a really really nice stay at good vibes! The hostel was very new when I arrived however was already a well run, beautiful hostel and I imagine has only improved greatly since then due to the awesome management (koko!) and other nice staff. It’s in a perfect location literally seconds from food etc and less than one minutes walk to a lovely quiet but central ghat. The rooftop is wonderful to chill; dorms are comfortable with curtains and air on, and I’ll definitely be back :)

    Located close to the river, very good price, the beds are good; however they could clean the floor of the luggage storage space under the bed more.

    Great location as you can walk to all the ghats and temples very easily. Organised a boat trip through them and woke up early only for no one to be there. Rooms are clean and have curtains but the lockers underneath were really annoying. Had a rooftop but could do with some comfy seats. Food was cheap and fine.

    Hostel was newly opened when we stayed, so not sure if the prices will remain the same, but for us it was a great deal although the breakfasts were quite small. In general hostel was well set up, cleanliness could be improved on, and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful (walked us to the hostel and helped carry bags from the main road!)

    The place is new. Staffs are polite and helpful no doubt about that. Atmosphere is quite relaxing compared to rest of Varanasi, which I really liked. They also offer refrigerator for your food and drinks. But need to improve ventilation of the rooms. Very suffocating. And they never provided a towel or changed bedsheets in our three days stay. From beginning at reception they told, they are trying to arrange towels,please wait. Which I found extremely unprofessional. With time It'll improve.
