I visited Varanasi in March 2012 with a friend of mine. I did not have advance booking and we had to search for a long time to find one. Initially this hotel refused to give us rooms (in-spite of having rooms) probably because I'm an Indian and I spoke the local language and hence making additional money (e.g., sight seeing,...

We had one night extra in Varanasi due to confusion booking train tickets and so decided to stay at Puja when a boy in the street recommended it - we were extremely tired with huge backpacks and had nowhere to go and so followed him. When we got there the staff first told us how stupid we were for coming...

We are long term travelers with basic needs - general level of cleanliness and enough space for our (minimal) stuff. This place simply met our needs but was not pleasant. A three is a fairly low rating for me to give, considering our simple needs. Luckily we only had to stay here one night because the guesthouse we had been...

I rang the guesthouse on the morning of my arrival in Varanasi. I was told they had a room for 700 rupees but when I arrived they told me that someone had extended their stay and now the only room available was 1000 rupees. I just wanted a room so I took it. The room was spacious, had air con...

Me and my friend stayed here on for a night on 10th Nov 2011. We were charged Rs.250 per night for a double stay room without air-cond. It was good enough. Cleanliness can be improved and the room locking system is quite annoying too. the receptionist Rajoo is quite informative but overpromising for services. We waited for the boatman and...

Puja GH has nice and basic rooms, relatively clean bathrooms. Don't expect luxury. I was there in November, so A/C I didn't need, fan was perfectly enough. Locking mechanisms of the rooms are quite annoying, but I got used to it. We used sleeping bags, no top sheets were provided. The guest house is a 5-10 min walk from the...

This is not a guesthouse, this is a disaster! Default: simple and dirty. Bad: quite dirty and sometimes only warm water. Towels: with holes and stinky. Everywhere animals in the room! But the worst part of the manager: every day he made promises, aber he never did anything..Er urged to show me Varanasi. At the appointed time, he has not...

Rooms here are fairly basic but despite the age of the building, they were clean and bright, the sheets were clean (only one tiny hole..no top sheet) and the bathrooms had a working shower. The rooms stayed fairly cool so I chose a room without A/C and just used the fan and it was one of the quietest ceiling fans...

We were in Puja Guest House, planning to stay for 3 nights in an AC Room for 20 Euro per night, escaped after one sleepless night to a good, known here, Hotel in Cantonment. The Ganga flooded the Ghats, so the Entrance was only reachable through climbing a lot of excrements from any creature and piles of rotting waste. When...
