    My stay with Suraj's family was absolutely superb! I could not have asked for a more welcoming and friendly place to stay. I had a private room with a shared bath right outside the door, so it was very convenient. They have a beautiful rooftop that you can see the Ganga river, and everyone who came to stay during the 2 weeks I was there was pleasant and friendly. The room was very comfortable and secure, and I, as a single woman traveling, did not feel unsafe at any moment. Thank you again!!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Suraj Guesthouse! The location was brilliant, very close to the Ganga and the ghats. Lovely rooftops to relax on. The hostel had an authentic feel to it. The best part of our stay was the lovely hostel owner - very kind and very helpful man, really made us feel welcome here! Thank you!

    We had an fanstastic stay in Suraj Guest house in Varanasi. The hostel is run by a very friendly family which you can ask about everything. It is only about an 8 min walk to the Ganges and has a very nice rooftop where we met nice other travellers. Food was okay - good. Only thing was that it is still hard to find when you want to go there on your own even though the description of the owner was good. Oh and: better not do the offered guided tour through the streets- its way to expensive.

    Nice place with really nice staff! It’s a little hard to get to in the mazes but hey that’s Varanasi... the dude was even nice enough to upgrade us (a couple) to the double room with ensuite at no extra cost. We would stay here again

    Fabulous

    This is a hard place to summarise. Facilities are poor; at times there was no running water at all and there were frequent power cuts. However, we left with fond memories, mainly due to the friendly manager and atmosphere. The manager was completely honest and always trying to fix any issues (albeit in his own time). Great location just off the ghats, but hard to find. Food also good, but again, order way in advance. If you have plently of Indian-style patience I would recommend.

    This is India and this is Varanasi so you have to alter your expectations accordingly. This hostel is very cheap and very well located (literally 2 minutes from the burning ghat's). The owner is friendly, and the hostel is on top of the owner's house. It has a great view from the rooftop too. In general, the property is not so clean. The showers are OK and the wifi is very inconsistent (but they were building nearby when we stayed, so maybe it is better another time). It has the basics!

    You get what you pay for. Good location, dodgey shower/washroom - wet/mouldy/leaking But overall ok Very hard to find! They offer pick up and i advise you take this. Google maps doesn't work among the tall buildings- and its a windy long walk from where vehicles can't go- so take them up on this!
