Property Description

Wander Station Hostels is your home away from home. We started our operation from 1st Sep 2018. This home is for wanderers but not only limited to them, but it is also for every being who explores. One step further in building a community, the hostel is all about upgrading your stay experience!

The hostel is beautifully decorated with cute doodles around the space and peaceful colours. Taking the best care of your comfy sleep, we use the super quality beds & mattresses, air conditioning (AC) as well the sanitation you need in the washrooms is just on-point. The luxurious dorms have curtains for privacy and lockers for security. The Private rooms, on the other hand, are large and spacious rooms with king size beds, mini dining area, fridge, television and a window gathering the sun rays to wake you up to the beautiful days on your visit. The walls are specially curated with the best of the art in town. Considering the best practices for safety and security, the hostel is under 24x7 CCTV surveillance and guest reception services are available every minute of the day and night. The hostel also has a number of social-networking areas and multiple relaxation areas such as the common area, the terrace with a view and many more wherein you can talk, listen, explore and experience the world outside on the inside. For the book-lovers, there is a library and for the Netflix lovers, there is a Netflix room-cum-amphitheatre. For the food lovers, we have our in-house cafe called the Wander View Cafe bringing you Indian and International delicacies with the view of the Ganges and the popular ghats. Not just in the spaces, our love and care for our wanderers is in the air of the hostel as we bring Talk Happy Therapy to curate your experiences in the hostel with time. You guessed it right, your day at the hostel is absolutely pre-planned with sessions to bring you at peace and happiness with Talk Happy Therapy.

Located at a walkable distance of fewer than 500 metres from Dashwamedh Ghat, 100 metres from Rana Mahal Ghat while approximately a kilometre away from Manikarnika Ghat, the hostel has served more than 3000 happy customers since it’s inception from 1st September 2018. The services such as the boat rides, walking tours and others are just a request away at a nominal price with experienced guides and more.

Why We Started :

Isn’t it true that most of us try and find the home away from home? What better than having to begin the journey at one of the locations which is core to India’s cultural heritage. We’ve proudly introduce you to what we call a Home: the Wander Station Hostels and we have chosen Varanasi for your experiences in the Cultural Capital of India. This is the first step in building a community of Wanderers, a place to refuge with the other.

The term Backpackers Hostel is not alien to many wanderers, but what went missing with us was the feeling of ‘home’. We at Wander Station Hostel are upgrading how you stay at a hostel. We care for the quality of your sleep on our beds, the sanitation you need in washrooms and the security you require while sharing the dormitory space with others. Imagine the sunrise and the sunset through the ghats, the soothing music of birds chirping and the acoustic guitar playing what you long for. Your favourite movies with the community is upon us, while you pop-in the pop-corn with wanderers around the world. What better than getting to know stories and lived experiences from bodies around you to your ears. well, guess what? Wander Station Hostel gives you all of it! We are situated at a walkable distance from the Dashwamedh Ghat, Rana Mahal Ghat and Manikarnika Ghat and bring you all of your needs with magical wands of best service possible to make you feel at home.

One cannot define a Wanderer in terms of their way of travelling or staying, it is always the passion and the love that matters. We, the family of Wander Station Hostel, bring you the home away from home with guaranteed experience of love, care and satisfaction. And we are eager to see you sooon!

    Superb

    I immensely enjoyed my stay at Wander Station, Varanasi. The location was perfect, walking distance from Dashashwamedh Ghat, and a rooftop view of river Ganga! Staff was nice, the common area was so damn cool! I even liked the hammock they placed on the 2nd floor. I made a bunch of friends here and I got a very positive vibe! P.S. the rooftop is a real fun place to chill at night!

    There was no kitchen facility for the tourist to do their personal cooking. Whereas, in other Hostels all facilities are there.

    Wander Station is a fantastically positioned for exploring wonderful Varanasi. Super clean, friendly staff and a nice cool, calm retreat from the beautiful chaos outside :) There was a minor balls up when I was moved dorm without being advised and had some of my possessions accidentally locked away from me for a couple of hours by the new guests however the stay were very apologetic and supportive of the misunderstanding. I will certainly stay here again upon returning to Varanasi!

    Fabulous

    Although can be a little tricky to find in the dark(G-Maps never takes you the best way), once you’re there you’ll be thankful. Standard Indian Hostel, little run down, pillows need changing etc, but beds are comfy and decent duvets(although covers aren’t changed between users). Staff were super helpful and every request I made was fulfilled. Top marks. Easy to walk around the ghats and main lanes and close to great food places. Aadha-Aadha around the corner is a must stop!

    The location is very close to ghats and somehow the city lanes give nice benaras Vibes as place. They couldn't give us very early check-in due to logical constraints but allowed us to use common spaces to freshen up and gave some good recommendations to see around. It's beautifully Instagram worthy decorated as well! We had taken a private room which was very clean and comfortable. The grumpy cat is a huge plus. I just wish they would give fresh bottles or atleast reusable bottles for use.

    Very Good

    Good place to relax, they have curtains so there is privacy. And there's a small shelf next to your bed where you can leave your phone or water bottle overnight. They also have lockers, and laundry service, which was quite good but on the expensive side. Overall I had a good experience (I was a bit ill so I didn't socialise much, but there were people regularly gathering at the rooftop in the evening).

    The sheets had not been changed and room and bathroom were really dirty. Walking on the room floor was a challenge :( no atmosphere in the hostel. Bed was comfortable and staff helpful and nice. Didn’t have breakfast there. Laundry was very expensive.

    Dorms are okay but there isn‘t really an atmosphere at the hostel and everyone can just enter into the building. The staff was not very helpful.
