“Wonderful stay at Baba Guesthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

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.

Hi! Guys,

This was my first trip to Varanasi and i had decided to crash near one of the Ghats as i was more interested in Photographing the activities around at any given time.
So a month back went through all the reviews on Tripadvisor and booked my room at BabaGuestHouse which is near the Dashaswamegh Ghat (Ganga Aarti or prayers are performed every evening at 1830hrs which shouldn't be missed!).
Gopal and his bro Govind are the owners of BabaGuestHouse who run this place with some help from family members. All are very sweet people. Trust me- im actually very particular about where i stay whenever i travel. So just go ahead and book Ur rooms whenever in Benaras or Varanasi.
As i was staying alone for 3 days...i preferred eating there itself as they do have a small restaurant on the ground floor. Had a pleasant stay.
As this was closer to the ghats i used to wake up early for a walk and come back for breakfast or lunch or to charge my camera battery. It is so convenient.
Paid Rs.1,500 for 3 days stay!
Next time i land in Varanasi- i know where to stay!

Have a pleasant stay! Cheers!

Room Tip: Frankly it doesn't matter. Discuss with Gopal and go for it!

I spent a whole week in Baba, and i had a really good experience.
Its a family run guest house :) Really nice people and the owner will do anything to make your stay good. Its very well located, the room was spacious and very clean. The hot shower and wifi internet a plus :) They run their own restaurant as well with pretty good food. Everything in a really reasonable good price.
I had a great time and even my leaving ticket was organized by them.
Theres hundreds of guest houses in Varanasi, but i guarantee its a right pick :)
Would definately come back !!

a well located (in the heart of the old city, close to the Ghat's) great roof terrace to hang out, family run and family feel place. clean and comfortable accommodation, with shared and en-suites available. laundry and other services make this place highly convenient. lots of places to eat and explore on its doorstep. lovely food in the on site restaurant - good cook! enjoy!
