We picked this place from trip advisor as being pretty convenient to the Ghats but also not expensive, and we were not disappointed. In particular, the manager, Sanjeev, was extremely helpful and hospital, arranging transportation to and from the airport, and giving us the perfect room for our circumstances. The room itself was spacious and adequate if not luxurious, and... More

I went to Varanasi last week with my family for first time. I was little bit worried about the guest house but I was totally wrong.

It was a over all good experience. Comfort and peace of mind both taken care by the Shiva Kashi management specially Sanjivji. Customizing as per the requirement, arranging drop to station given lanes and by lanes in Varanashi is difficult to maneuver with luggage was some highlights of the stay.

Nice clean hotel and very good value for money. Shared bathroom only downside but was never a problem. Cheap cold soft drinks downstairs. Main positive was the manager who was invaluable in organising us onward transportation to Sunauli. Very helpful. Situated on a main pathway with plenty of places to eat. Close to the river and ghats. All walkable.

Tucked away in a small alley, a bit difficult to find at first but ask and people will point you to the right direction. Rooms are clean and rates very reasonable. Staff are excellent and above all, this place is a great base for exploring the major ghats of Varanasi. Will recommend to anyone visiting this enchanting place!

Pros: cheap (500 rps a night for double room, shared bathroom in low season), great location, helpful staff, clean rooms, no AC but fans worked really well so wasn't necessary, shared bathrooms always seemed clean! Cons: only 1 charging point but not really a massive issue Would recommend!
