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.

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!

    This was the first hostel I stayed in India as a solo female traveller and it is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I was instantly made to feel welcome by both guests and staff who were very lovely and helpful with any questions about what to do and see. Rooms were really clean and comfortable, and the rooftop restaurant has incredible views, good food and a really nice atmosphere. If I ever go back to Varanasi, I will definitely stay here again :)

    Wander station was the first option when I was looking for stay in varanasi and i feel so right after my visit. The place is little inside but that's what makes it more special. The front desk manage vinit was always on spot and helped with all possible ways. The rooftop always gives breathtaking view of Ganga River be it sunrise or the sunset. Manoj is wonderful cook to satisfy your hunger. I'm definitely looking forward for the next visit soon. May you get you seek Cheers

    This is where you want to stay. This is a classic hostel vibe and is really a wonderful place. I loved my time here. The staff are amazing, the other guests are backpackers, there is a positive and kind vibe around the place, there are awesome tours available, the rooms are clean, the bathrooms are perfect. In the evenings people chill on the rooftop. Its located in a nice area, it feels safe and cozy, there are plenty of restaurants and hippie shops and normal shops, and the Darbhanga Ghat.

    If you are interested in experiencing a mix of hippiness and traditionalism in Banaras, then I will recommend this as one of the best places to stay in Varanasi. Located right near Dashashwamedh Ghat, it is clean and very houses a cool environment with a fascinating rooftop view. The staffs are super nice and friendly.
