    Calm and relaxing hostel in the craziness of Varanasi! Room was nice with AC. The food is great and reasonably priced and they cook for you whenever you want. We felt safe and comfortable straight away. The hostel offers a great tour Yuvraj was so kind and helpful and showed us all the best things to do in a fun and safe way. Hostel isn’t right by the ghats which turned out to be a good thing as it was more chilled and quiet. We would definitely stay again! Thank you to all the kind staff! 10/10

    The International Travellers Hostel is one of a kind. It has a friendly, warming and family atmosphere that cannot be beaten! The building is owned by the sweetest lady who speaks very little English but will always come and say hello and cook you the most amazing food. The host is a young chap known as Yuvie (I may have not spelt that right) he became not only our amazing host but also a very good friend! He was our tour guide around Varanasi and his knowledge is outstanding! I HIGHLY recommend

    Such a great place to stay that it has been painful to leave. Exceptional staff. Kind, generous. Movies on the lawn one evening. Mix of tourists and Indian business people. Great breakfast and good self use kitchen. Like life, not obvious to find but once there it’s so so nice to rest a while. Entrance from main road down temporary rubble track belies the beauty beyond. Need to make signpost to find the place more visible...

    Super friendly staff that let us check in even when we arrived at 5 am! The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily and they go out of their way to help you! They even walked down the street to find us a cheap tuk tuk. :)

    A very well maintained, squeaky clean place with nice decor. Located within walkinh distance from the Varanashi train junction, its quite comfortable with helpful and friendly staff. Kitchen is well equipped if someone wants to cook his/her own meal, no non veg allowed , though. Food delivery from outside eateries available. Enjoyed my stay.
