    If you're going Banaras and searching a place to stay, place which is pocket friendly, clean and safe (I was travelling solo) then Travo Tales is the place for you . The hostel staff is very friendly specially Raj Bhaiya. He will even tell you the places to visit and many more things. So don't think too much just go for it.

    This is my first hostel experience and i want to say that first impression is the last impression. I am very happy to stayed there. Location of the property is very close to dashashvamedh ghat and Shree kashi Vishwanath Mandir. Staff is very supportive and good. Atmosphere of the hostel is very cool. I made 3-4 friends in the hostel. It was a house feeling. I will definitely come again in the same hostel. Thanks

    Awesome experience and a beautiful stay. We have arrived early in the morning and Raj bhaiyya allowed us to rest in common room and later in the morning he explained what to visit and what to eat in varanasi in a clear and crisp manner. And the restaurant in the upstairs is an amazing place to hang out. Must visit for all the beautiful memories and fun.

    You can avoid good from their restaurant coz it's not good waste of money. Raj is a nice guy tells you a lot about the place dos and don'ts but sometimes give dead like vibe. Too much talk of death and stuff. So over-all if you can avoid this mind your business then it's a value for money no question asked.
