    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.

    Suraj and his family welcomed us into their hostel nestled in the streets of Varanasi above the Manikarina Ghat. As suggested, we got them to arrange a tuk tuk driver to pick us up from the train station which I would really recommend. We were driven most of the way and then walked the final stretch. The room was simple, but clean and exactly what we needed and this was a great location to explore Varanasi from. Look out for extra costs of services such as laundry and boat rides...it can add up!

    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

    Great value for money and peaceful tranquillity in the heart of a chaotic city. The Suraj provided me with a much needed safe haven in Varanasi. The location is exceptional, being just a minute walk to the ghats and the Ganges river and being located close to great restaurants and cafes, in the maze of alleyways. Best part of the place, is the homely feel. It is a quiet, simple and family run house. The family were so welcoming! If you come to Varanasi you should definitely stay here!

    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.

    Very difficult to find, but is very close to the ghaat good location. They offer tours, the walking was really good but the boat tour was the same as if we booked with anyone at the river side (but half the price). Staff were very friendly.

    Breakfast is just toast and coffee. It's very cheap, good location, the staff unresponsive, yet friendly and helpful if they can be, which is not very often. The experience leaves one wanting...

    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!

    Senior Suraj is helpful and kindness, but i suggest do not join the junior Suraj's walking tour, it is not worth

    Only one of the doors in our room had a lock. The water was on and off, and i git two differe t explanations for this. The bathroom was filthy; the toilet had clearly not been cleaned since the last guests had left, and the trash can was overflowing. I could never find any staff to ask questions. One of the qindow screens had a large hole in it, and the other window could not be opened bc bats would fly in. The location was good, and it was cheap, but there are better options.
