    Despite the conditions that Covid brought this time i never felt uncomfortable nor unsafe. This hostel felt peaceful and at the same time entertained. Was in close proximity to assi ghat and a great restaurant (terracotta cafe) nearby. Outside of Delhi things are much different.

    The location is perfect and the vibe is just amazing. I stayed in four hostels during my stay in Varanasi and found this one the best. About the negatives, the rooftop restaurant is a little expensive and I felt there are not enough toilets in the hostel. Overall, I had an amazing stay here.

    Nice hostel located right by Assi ghat. The main attraction is the big rooftop, which serves as the common area, where is its very easy to meet new people. Varanasi is really a destination that deserves a longer stay.

    The Moustache Hostel Varanasi is the perfect getaway location. It's located just a km away from Assi Ghat and is in the nicer part of Varanasi with multiple cafés and eateries. I loved every moment of the stay there. Made friends, shared travel stories and bonded over the Bonn fire(Probably a winter only thing). My trip was magical and I give all credit to Moustache hostel.

    it was mentioned while booking from this site that Air conditioner will be off at 10 am to 1 pm and 5pm to 8 pm but the worst disappointment is the no-AC timing by the staff is changed to morning 7 AM to 12 pm and 4pm to 9 pm. In the month of May June it won't work as it's too hot for tourists.
