Property Description

We are a small but united community and we believe in change.

At Good Vibes hostel, we are trying to create an environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling travel experience in order to reduce our impact on the environment.

We are a new hostel located in the hippie lane of old Varanasi close to mother Ganges, in a beautiful and peaceful surrounding away from the city madness.

We are close to the Ganges, some of the ancient temples, little shops, cafes, cows, monkeys, street foods, boats, weaver's village, bang lassi, ghats, holy babas, philosophy, spirituality, ashrams, yogashalas, forts, classical music, the ceremony ghat and the burning ghat.

We have hi-speed free Wifi and filtered water station.

We have an in-house cafe (Shiva cafe & German bakery) and a beautiful rooftop (Urban jungle).
We do everyday community chai from 4-5 pm at the rooftop.

We speak the language of the universe!

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.”

    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 .

    Good Vibes deserves a medal for the humanitarian work they do for the street dogs (with the help of a non-profit group and others): they feed them and get them the help they need when necessary. Keep it up! This place is in a great location! The rooms are exceptionally clean, especially the washrooms. The food at the Shiva Café is very good and the prices can’t be beaten. The only downside of staying in this part of Varanasi are the dogs howling and barking in the middle of the night.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Stayed in private dirty cell with own dirty ensuite. The location is on the main through street, so day and night the motor cycles and dogs are going by, makes it very noisy chance of sleep low. Relax on the rooftop forget it still under construction which of course adds to the day time noise. Sheets and towels provided are stained and torn fit for the bin only. Rooms are damp and dirty, do not look under the bed! Over priced. For good vibes stay elsewhere see TripAdvisor for photos
