    Such a nice hostel with amazing staff members! The hostel is in a great location (a super short walk to the ghats), but the rooftop makes it a lot of fun to hangout at the hostel itself as well! The staff were all very nice, and the facilities were clean! I definitely recommend Moustache Hostel to anyone staying in Varanasi!

    Great location near the river and one of the Ghats! Wonderful helpful staff and we also did such a great tour. The vibe in the outside cafe/ common space was great in the evening and our room was clean and comfortable. We wanted to stay longer!!

    Great hostel with absolutely amazing staff, friendly and very helpful! Love the bed bunks with curtains for privacy and the rooftop common area and free chai circle in the evenings! There were some issues with hot water but they were always looking into it quickly. The community kitchen is not so good - you might add more utensils, maybe a toaster and water boiler and give the refrigerator a deep clean. I still enjoyed staying there!

    I rented two beds during Jan 20. Quality of blanket is not good. Blankets must be replaced with good quality blankets. Cleanliness in washroom area is an issue. This is only due to poor "washrooms to members" ratio during heavy booking. Overall experience is good. Place is suitable for activity/ chillout/ culture exchange. However, waiting in queue during morning hours for nature's call was pathetic. I hope you consider these points positively for improvement of the accommodation facilities.

    Really friendly staff and a great location near one of the ghats. Good atmosphere, showers were cold though. It is the farthest south ghat, so if you want to be in the center of town consider a hostel farther north along the river. They do evening and morning boat tours, but both mornings I was there they didn’t do the sunrise tour because of fog, so don’t count on that! You can walk down to the Assi Ghat on your own and hire a random boat guide, though.

    A heap of tours on offer here but two mornings in a row no guide turned up so not 100% reliable. No hot water and cr*p blankets but staff were really lovely and helpful. Good vibe here, good beds and decent location

    I am a full time travellor.After visiting the hostel I was told if you pay directly instead of online you will get an extra discount, There was no discount on the charges. Anyways I booked the hostel for 8 days and payed for the same together in advance. But unfortunately I got an emergency and leave back to Mumbai after few days. Not a single was refunded and the guy on reception Yash told me there is no such policy that we can give the refund. Once you have payed even for a month it goes in.
