varanasi Is one of my favorite places in India and really enjoyed staying at the Puja guest house. our guide Chiva made all the difference, since we were three female friends having a spiritual and very honest guide really helped. I definitely recommend the puja guess house.exceptional good food in the roof top restaurant as well.

We had a good time in Varanasi at this hostel. Two best things: - Roof top restaurant with an amazing view - A guy called "Shiva" who is a great guide and organizer The rooms are not super clean, the sink was broken and every thing looked as if it wouldn't hurt to invest some money for a renovation. Anyhow it's location is great and it is not expensive. When we checked in Shiva warned us about the scams going on in Varanasi, and gave us some tips. He also offered different tours but not in the super insisting way you get so often at other places in India. He organized a boat tour for us for 500 inr. (~2h, 2 person, small boat) which is a pretty good price. He also offered different tours through Varanasi where he himself is the guide. We decided to go on the so called City Tour. For 1600 inr we took a rickshaw and he showed us different temples, the university and some ghats. Everything was included in this price and we had a great time with him. He explained his religion and culture with much enthusiasm. It was a great experience and we can highly recommend it. If you would like to meet him you can reach him via email: shiva73@yahoo.co.in or by phone: 00919415814776 All in all we had a great time in Varanasi, and we would recommend you to stop at the Puja Guest House, at least for a dinner and a talk with Shiva.

We had a very good time here, the restaurant serves good meals and the staff is friendly. Our room had a terrific view on the river, so does the terrace which is probably the highest building in the old town with an incredibile panorama. Ashok the massage guy is overpriced, don’t do that.

Stayed here for 4 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Room was basic but very clean and staff are really friendly. The rooftop restaurant has the best views over the river. Unfortunately they don't have live music here anymore as player is sick but overall nice place to stay!

This is one of the worst guest houses in Varanasi, plz never visit this place. The rooms are literally bad and the hotel staff is worst at this place. If u smile at them nd be polite they take you in wrong sense and behave so weird. For them more important is money than good guest service. All they want is commission from u and bother so much to buy some stuff from their owner's shop. Seriously I had the most terrible experience staying at this guest house.

No air con in the rooms which is severely uncomfortable in 45+degree heat! Poor internet service. No pick up from train station when the hotel is in a maze!! You will never find this place without somebody who knows the area to help you!

The staff at this place wants really high commisions for help to book anything, and furthermore they will never stop talking about the owners silk shop which they want you to visit, so you can fund their business even more.. Rooms are not very nice either, and the place is very hard to get to cause cars can't get anywhere near it.. The riverside view from the restaurant is nice tho. Also WIFI terrible, but that seems to be the norm in India.

Booked in for four nights but only stayed two. First night had a meal in the rooftop restaurant which resulted in two of us being very sick vomiting with bad diarrhea. The bathrooms hadn't been cleaned for so long. The sheets and pillows were filthy. Overall a bad experience. We checked out as soon as we were able.
