    Shiva was the perfect host during our stay, very friendly and very helpful, really made us feel welcome in his home. The house itself was very nice with a rooftop restaurant overlooking Varanasi whilst also only a 5 minute walk from the main ghats. Wish we could've stayed longer!

    This was the first place I stayed on my trip to India. My room had a balcony with a ton of monkeys jumping around on the roof next to me. It was awesome. The staff is super friendly and helpful with anything you need. I would stay here again no doubt.

    Great budget accommodation. We arrived early morning & offered chai :) The room we booked was small the owner pointed this out and offered another but with no hard sell. We took the bigger room which was very comfortable with an Lovely hot shower with great pressure. Ginger cafe on the roof is does great food. The owner & his family are friendly kind and helpful. The location is perfect. You can hear voices from the street & other floors but it didn’t bother us. We would definitely stay again 😃

    Good views in both directions of the Ganges from the rooftop. The Guest House was down a series of very small alleys, so difficult to get me bags there. My room was on the third floor, but they helped me with getting my bags there. No breakfast was ever mentioned, so I ate out.

    i had a shared 4 bed room with space hardly enough for one person, about 7.5 sq metres, where owner ready to push 4 people just to get more money. I was staying there 4 nights, no once anyone clean that room inside, it was so terribly dirty that i clean it by my own and still pay for it (this arrogance is amazing, I'm speechless) .. same time guest house stuff were there, but they don't care. People who stayed there same time with me were very nice, I don't know why owner treat them that bad.
