Me and my husband visited Banaras for holidays and we're trying to find a good decent guest house and there we found Banaras Paying Guest house near Assi ghat as we wanted stay to be near ghat. Mr. Naveen who was the host was helpful and good. The place was neat and clean and he himself kept it clean. The little inconvenience I felt that it lies a bit in gali. Rest it was a good experience staying there. My best wishes to Mr. Naveen. Aparajita
A friend and I had a two-day/one-night stopover in Varanasi. Before our arrival, we had only planned to see the evening aarti by the Ganges and walk around the city. However, Krishna really helped us make the most of our short stay. The evening we arrived Krishna personally took us to see the evening aarti ceremony, to his friend's gift shop so that we could pick up a special gift for a friend who is expecting a baby and who we had plans to meet a few days following, and to dinner in his friend's restaurant for great company and conversation. He then planned a full agenda for the following day to allow us to see the city and traditions. We ended up going for an early morning boat tour to see the sunrise over the Ganges, had a homemade breakfast on the roof terrace at the Guest House, a walking tour of the city and temples (a real local look at the city and the people) ... all before leaving for the airport in the afternoon. What we expected to be a quick stopover turned out to be a memorable highlight of our trip. I'd highly recommend going to see Krishna and Naveen. They are great people.…
Banaras Paying Guesthouse is a family-run business by Krishna, his brother, sister and his parents. They all are lovely and helped us in many ways. They made everything to make us comfortable. The rooms are simple but cosy with open shelves to put your stuffs on (which makes a difference comparing to other hostels). You need to remove your shoes when entering the building so the floor is clean everywhere. We especially liked the rooftop. We spent many mornings, afternoons and evenings there, chilling and reading away from the streets' noise. I recommend the place.
My first travel to Varanasi made me quiet excited. Varanasi is a city with special story and history. My unplanned arriving at the guest house was great. Naveen made me feel like home straight away. I had dinner on the comfy roof top and met the other people. An amazing fusion of people. Naveen and Krishna are always around making everybody feel good. Shared moments on the rooftop or showing you around. Thank you for this amazing stay. Rooms are clean and they will help u with anything u will ask for. See you soon.
My stay at this guesthouse was so lovely. The staff went above & beyond to make sure I was happy & comfortable. The rooms are super clean & the thickness of the walls means that they’re not too hot. The guesthouse also has a dorm room for friends traveling together! Location is round the corner from Assi ghat and lots of cafes & shops! Highly recommended!
