    I have to say that it was one of the best hostels I stayed ever. It’s very clean and guys who are working there are very friendly and helpful. Also it’s very nice that breakfast is included in a price and actually tasty breakfast! Location is very fine as well it’s quiet area but quite central easy to reach everything by foot. So I gave fool stars and very recommend this place!

    Nice place to stay in Varanasi. Cozy chill area at the top floor and a great view from the rooftop. For the money it’s worth it and breakfast is included. I would recommend La Vaca Varansi.

    Very good location and good value for the money (included breakfast and hot water). The hostel arranges trips and activities, wich was nice. Not very comfy beds, and a lot of noise.

    Mushroom noodles are just excellent and the guys in the kitchen are doing a great job. The cleanliness of the place can be questioned and the receptionist can be grumpy. Even if he is not the friendliest person ever, he would help you when needed.

    I went in winter and was so looking forward to a warm shower finally. but the lack of warm water left me thoroughly disappointed and shivery. otherwise, very nice beds, amazing location, near the river and cremation areas. the guy in charge is very annoying though and he’ll ask you to also book on other booking sites and apps just so he can boost his reviews and he gets very persistent about it all, and very invasive. also the free tour they offer is pretty boring. but very good decor.

    In my experience, La Vaca Hostel location is really good. The area is safe so you can walk alone at night to dinner and there will be no problem! The staff is nice and always can help! But the place is no so clean to be honest. The toilets, sincs outside the rooms, showers, terrace and comun areas are always dirty and without ambient at all. The place don't look like in the pictures!

    It is the worst hostel I stayed in India esp. Because of poor facilities. Sheets and blankets are clean but cleaniness is very low. It is cold and wet. I chosed it because it was well rated and I was really desappointed. Staff is nice and cold overall good.

    It was the worst hostel I stayed in in India. The staff was unprofessional and unhelpful and I felt like I was s**mmed by the tours they offered. I know the bed wasn't cleaned because there were crumbs in the sheets, and when I requested new sheets the owner seemed frustrated by me. I would say you get what you paid for, but I have stayed in other hostels for this price that were much nicer.
