    This is the best accomodation in Varanasi! So close to everything you want to see in Varanasi and such a lovely family that speaks good English. Monu was so accomodating and helpful with anything I needed. Check out Varanasi Cafe close to accomodation and Ghats great organic food and healthy baked goods!

    Very good location right next to The Golden Temple. The private room is small but near the bathroom and wifi router. The rooftop is cool to watch movies or take a smoke break. You can order breakfast the night before if you're going to sleep in after the Varanasi madness.

    Overall the place was confortable, the family was wonderful and the location was perfect. They do make food but they're not a restaurant so plan ahead. There are some nice cafes close. It's rather small so there isn't much atmosphere as far as a hostel, however it was nice and simple and clean and we enjoyed our stay.
