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!

    We loved our time at Wander Station! The staff were all so friendly and helpful in answering our questions and provided good recommendations. One being the sunrise boat tour that was absolutely amazing; for only 350 rps a person you are taken out by boat to the ganges to see the morning ceremony and the burning ghats! The guy taking it was really nice and gave a good tour! The rooms were clean, had AC, and had multiple toilets/showers attatched. The rooftop had great views and nice atmosphere!

    Great find at Wander Station! Clean facilities, flexible, cheap and awesome location, fun/eco-friendly environment, with a great rooftop with drinks and views! My one concern was in our room there was a small glass plate that was missing from the window that made me nervous about mosquitos. BUT, the SUPER friendly staff and great facilities more than made up for my one small concern! Would certainly stay again when I go back!

    One of the best hostels in India. The dorm beds have full blinds and charging points. The location is right next to the main ghats and the staff are all friendly and helpful.

    Great location near the ghats. Staff are also willing to help and very relaxed. Rooms are clean and have lockers to secure your stuff. Plenty of space to chill out downstairs. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in so far in northern India.

    Location is excellent, very close to the ghats. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only negative is the two common spaces don’t allow for organic inclusion. They are both completely separate from any sort of foot traffic, so it can be hard to tag along or be easily included in these spaces. Kitchen upstairs, “restaurant” could be run a little more professionally, (have change, give an eta on food timings, not forget about orders). Beautiful view from the roof. Overall a nice place with potential.

    This hostel is pretty awesome! It is tricky to find so if you're arriving after dark definitely get the prepaid taxi. They don't use plastic bottles but give you a refillable one, there's COLD filtered water which is nice. We were speaking to one of the owners sons and he gave us a lot of good recommendations for all of India. Cons: The bathroom had no soap and my friend and I had to share a locker because they couldn't find the keys for the other one. Overall I'd recommend!

    Nice place. Very clean. Great location central to everything you want to see. Boat tour was nice and reasonably priced. Some staff are very helpful, others are more interested in walking into an in use rec room while people are talking and asking Alexa to play young dumb and broke then falling asleep.

    Brilliant Location! Staff on reception were generally good but the rooftop restaurant staff didn't appear to be interested in making food for guests most of the time and the kitchen didn't look particularly clean. On the plus side they do have a very cute dog and cat. Common area downstairs will be better when they can play movies on the projector again!

    The hostel is newly built and the dorms were clean with comfortable beds. The kitchen on the roof-top was pathetic with atleast 50 rats in it. They were roaming around all in the kitchen and made food vulnerable. Even told this to the property manager, but he did not show any interest in solving the problem. Had to eat out every time I stayed in this hostel. Avoid eating in the hostel kitchen or you may fall sick.
