    Moustache is awesome, the common area is the best (maybe too good - you get trapped there). Everything is clean and the staff are the most helpful you’ll ever come across, helped so many people book last min trains. Did the cooking class, sunrise and sunset tours which were all fun - recommend only doing the sunset because sunset and sunrise tours are really similar, but it’s worth waking up to see the river at sunrise, it’s really pretty :)

    Our group had a fantastic time at this hostel, it’s within walking distance to pretty much anything you want to do in Varanasi. The staff was super friendly and helpful with booking onward travel. They offer a ton of unique tours that we really enjoyed as well. There’s a cafe in the hostel which is really nice when you don’t want to leave for food. The main common space is on an outdoor patio with a really great vibe, would definitely stay again!

    The location is too good. Away from the hustle of Varanasi, this hostel is in a peaceful environment but still managing to be very close to Assi ghat. The beds are super comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are neatly maintained. All the staffs are friendly and welcoming. I went when there was very heavy rain in Varanasi, so had to spend a lot of time in the hostel itself. The rooftop cafe is a very chilled place and I almost spent half of my trip there. Will visit here again .

    Great place to stay in Varanasi, and less than 10 minutes walk to Assi Ghat. The hostel has large, clean rooms, and the staff are always willing to help out with advice.
