My second stay of a few months and equally as fun and enjoyable as my first.....and that's not something you can always count on elsewhere. Lucky is still running a good Guest House in a great location on Pandey Ghat. Hope to return again later in 2019 for a few months to learn Hindi this time.

Arrived in Varanasi, and stayed in an expensive place for two weeks while looking for a long-term place on the Ghats. After more than forty places, I chose Indra for several reasons. The chap who runs it, Lucky, will no doubt be a wealthy man before he grows old. Unlike so many other places who wouldn't discuss rates, so they're empty low-season, we did a deal we were both happy with on the basis of me staying eight months, through the low season when very few foreign tourists are in town and hotels are generally empty. However, don't expect a deal during high season as the place is busy as is the whole city! My room, with a full Ganges view, was a decent size, ensuite bathroom, spotlessly clean, including the bathroom (which is the downfall of so many places). Polished stone tiled floors on the upper floor and the ever present window bars, which made me ask? Monkeys he said with a smile. And sure enough, my first morning with windows open, monkey's sat outside watching me sleep. The place in general is very clean with a roof terrace, which they plan to make a cafe at some point, has a great view of the river & rooftops. I have a bicycle, which is happily kept on the ground floor, and Lucky, to be honest, is a very good host. Nothing negative to say about the place. It's tucked away just off Begali-Tola Road, with Pandey Ghat....well, you're on Pandey Ghat. Great selection of eateries within seconds walking including Brown Bread Bakery (fabulous), and very peaceful. A small store on the corner, and all the small retailers, cafes, barber shops, street food you can imaging along Bengali-Tola road. I've renamed it Diagon Alley.....it's wonderful! Everyone walks head-down watching where they're stepping. Take time to look up, some of the architecture is fantastic. I can recommend the samosa/dosa street food (turn right on Tola and it's on your right after maybe 60 metres - if you're at Bona Cafe you just passed it!). Samosa at R5 Dosa at R20. A very good meal for R30, all freshly cooked, not standing around attracting flies & always busy with locals. I'm back again in 2018 for even longer so will contact Lucky for prices beforehand. I like living here. Simple as that, and watching guests come and go, I'd say with confidence, that they all enjoy their stay here too. Lucky is also good for information locally, and can recommend no end of reliable people/places. He popped me out to buy my cycle, and we got a good 'locals' price for it new. Speaks perfect English and other languages. I don't recommend much, but I happily recommend this place. I am in Varanasi March - December 2017.

판데이 가트에 있고요 뉴쿠미코 바로 옆이라 찾기 쉬울거에요 가트에 쉽게 갈 수 있어서 좋았어요 시설도 깨끗한 편이고 무엇보다도 편안한 분위기라 좋아요 한국 사람들은 많이 찾지 않지만 외국인들이 많이 있네요
