“Simple Abundance! Somit will make you feel like family!”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

Well all I can say is that we arrived as guests and left as family. The rooms are simple but clean and spacious. The beds are comfortable and there were plenty of blankets for the cold winter months. The shared bathroom was always clean and there was always enough hot water. The rooftop provides an interesting view for snapping photos. Best of all though is the director! Somit is simply amazing. His heart is in the right place. He truly cares about the children he is supporting in his classroom and he arranged for us to volunteer in the slums of Varanasi. He went above and beyond for us whenever we needed it. We stayed for 6 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The yoga was good and helped us relax as well. If you are looking for budget accommodations in Varanasi look no further. You dollars put to great use.

“Volunteering and yoga classes”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

I visited Saraswati Education Center/Yoga Education Training Society two years ago for the first time, to volunteer. I taught some of the children English and math, and sometimes we just played games, to let these children be children instead of postcard sellers and such. This year was the third time I went there, and the kids are still great.
Somit also teaches yoga in a quiet space on the top floor of the building, and you can enjoy other classes such as Ayurveda too.
I have really enjoyed my stays in Varanasi, helping these children, and hope that with the help Somit provides them they can have a bright future.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

We came here recommended by the guidebook to learn yoga, the lessons were great and we learned a lot. Downstairs, there were kids doing twice a day schooling, and to have the experience to hang out with these kids was phenomenal, the kind of experience most people came to India for. we had a great time, and hope many others will come.
