About International Travellers' Hostel

International Travellers' Hostel, Varanasi is North India's first ever Backpackers' Hostel! Tucked in a silent alleyway of the world's oldest living city, ITH has been thoughtfully tailored for World Travellers. From a basic Tent to Dorms to a Luxury Private Double Bedroom - there's something for everyone; from basic Backpacking to upscale Flashpacking - we have it all covered! Our homely accommodation and unmatched hospitality offers you experiences that are priceless. We are working continuously to provide you with a value for money, safe, clean, peaceful and friendly accommodation - a perfect place to come back to after a long & tiring day out in the intense old city of Varanasi.

Our family-run hostel is located in our historical house owned by our family for over 5 generations. Once serving as the summer house of the Queen of Nepal, it later fell under British reign, to be eventually auctioned off to one of our great grandfathers. Today this multicultural home is a modern Youth Hostel offering you a beautiful relaxing space and an opportunity to meet other travellers.

To offer you a comfortable stay we provide a whole array of facilities like free Wi-Fi (on all floors, including the garden and the rooftop), free purified drinking water, a fully-equipped modern kitchen, bathrooms with 24x7 hot & cold showers, washing machine, lockers (coming soon!), a cozy common room with TV, DVDs, iPod dock, books, card & board games, and a desktop computer. There is also a beautiful green garden with outdoor furniture and a swing, as well as a huge rooftop to enjoy our peaceful location in a destination as intense as Varanasi.

For the love of your taste buds we also offer a healthy and diverse food & drinks menu (Indian and western) catering from early morning till late at night. We prepare almost everything fresh with ingredients from the local market. Our recipes are toned-down to meet the 'non-Indian' taste buds, but of course we can spice things up for your real India adventure ;) Our latest addition is the Muesli Bar - eat a bowlful or as much as you can of your favourite cereals & fruits.

Our aim is to facilitate your time in India by offering you the little things that make all the big differences on a trip. We want to offer you something that lasts longer than a mere journey - we want you to have everlasting experiences!

We are looking forward to welcome you in the world's oldest living city!
