I enjoyed Baba Guesthouse and stayed there for three weeks. I had a double room with attached bathroom. There were several windows and good light. I enjoyed my time there.
The best thing about the place is the family that owns it: good family, no drama. They have several children, but they're all well behaved. The guests made more noise than the kids, although that seemed to wrap up at 11 PM every night, so no issue there.
They have free drinking water (nice touch) and wifi. Sometimes had some issues with wifi reaching my room, but usually it did.
The guest house is clean (the staff cleans it daily) and the owners seem to be paying good attention to keeping it in repair. It is a budget guesthouse, so there are small things like a slightly leaking faucet and small cracks in the wall--but overall everything just feels clean and the feel of the place is good. My room had a cheery paint job.
The guests are mostly from Japan and Korea, according to the owner. I think one of the owners even speaks some Japanese. As an American, I felt right at home. The guests were all nice.
As I said, I enjoyed my stay there and would stay again. Varanasi is a wonderful place, and Baba is as good a guest house as any I saw when I looked around.
