We stayed in a double room and the bed was tiny, not big enough for 2 people. The breakfast is terrible, small portions, greasy and unhealthy. Also the restaurant serves tiny portions too. Disappointing place.

The dorms are nice, beds with curtains for more privacy, big bathroom with hot water inside the dorms. The common area and rooftop is nice and comfy. The price includes a small breakfast, free mineral water and wifi. They close hostel door by 10:30pm so just make sure to let them know if coming after that time. Staff is very helpful and friendly, they also have a free walking tour and a paid one for sunset in the river but good price, same day laundry service for a good price,great place to meet people and very good location. Thank you very much for welcoming us so early in the morning after a long train ride, we definitely picked the best hostel to stay in Varanasi.

We couldn’t have been better. Next to one of the gahts and a little far from the train station, although we already knew that. The breakfast was included and was good (cereals with milk, banana and chai tea). They have a delicious bar upstairs, nice rooftop to see the views and cool common areas. Filter water to refill the bottles and funs in the bedroom. We did an amazing tour for free with them where Atul explained us everything about hinduism and his culture, we invite us a cup of tea before the Aarti ceremony and then we went there. Finally we went to see Manikarnika ghat (death ritual) and he explained how it works. They also suggested to buy a river tour qith them early in the morning before our flight. We took it and they made sure that everything was on time. It worth it!!!! Thank you very much! See you next time
