    Stayed at Neela for 3 Nights, want to specially thank the staff and owner of Neela, they are very helpful with a smile. Hostel has a nice view of the river from its rooftop. The rooms and linen are clean & cosy. Overall would anyday stay there again on my visit to Varanasi.

    Stayed 2 nights at this hostel had a great time , more than a fancy hostel it turned out to be a home where everyone is like your flatmate and you're having random weird discussion of your adventures in varanasi would definitely recommend the walking tour they organise and the evening boat tour . I would not look for another place in varanasi s

    The Hostel is located in the best part and aisle in Varanasi. Close to the Ghats, great cafes e restaurants around and extremely easy to walk around. Fantastic value for money and all staffs are amazing. I have stayed almost 10 days and I could not have chosen a better place for my budget trip. 100% recommend.

    This is the hostel you must stay in if you are in Varanasi. Doing away with all the commercial elements of other hostels, this hostel is one with character and a hostel to party. The owner, Sid is full hands on and one party animal. He sets up his DJ in the adjacent hostel (Bunkedup) at around 5pm and is relentless in his desire to let his guests have a good time. If you are young, want to absorb the spirit and the sheer craziness of Varanasi, then the Bunkedup/Neela is the place for you.

    We stayed in a private room during Dev Diwali peak time. Location- Good location, just 5 mins walk from Pandey Ghat. But reaching this hostel from market/station/airport can be little difficult, its 15-20 mins walk from drop off location Service - Excellent!! No issues faced during our stay. Everyone was with a smile. Breakfast - B'fast options can improve.They serve only Bread,omelet,butter,jam,cornflakes,tea.They shud add something here.. Overall good place for staying close to Ghats..

    This hostel is great in terms of location and the availability of private rooms. It is next to most of the main attractions and offers good excursions such as the morning and evening boat tours which should not be missed. The only thing to note is that there seemed to be a mostly younger crowd staying here (18-22 year olds) so although there was usually a friendly crowd hanging out it was not exactly a mixed age group. The room also appeared to not have been cleaned before my check-in.

    My rating should be higher, 2 people out 3 of the staff are exquisite persons (the young guy working at the night, and the mature man covering the rest of the day). The man who collects money not. I paid for the room and boat trip more than agreed. Next time be more transparent if someone asks to take an addition shower after check out, just let them note that you are running a business and you to charge a little of money to keep the bills paid. Don't hide it. Excellent breakfast, superb omelet.

    They're a fraud. Staff was not cooperative at all. Booked a room for 3days, had to cut short by a day due to change in plans. I called them to update, to which they said, no problem it's manageable, I don't have to worry. But they charged me for 3days. No cleanliness in room, stayed for 2days, asked reception to clean the room, nobody came even once. Bed sheet had holes made by cigarettes. Quits provided stink, couldn't use them. Broken toilet seat, had cigarette ash on walls. Worst ever stay!
