Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

About International Travellers' Hostel & Bistro

International Travellers' Hostel, Varanasi, now also featuring ITH Bistro, is tucked in a silent alleyway of what is also known as the world's oldest living city. ITH has been thoughtfully tailored for Travellers from all across the world - both traditional Backpackers and contemporary Flashpackers. Ranging from a basic Tent to air-conditioned Dorms to a gorgeous Luxury Double Bedroom - there's something for everyone! 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.

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!

Accommodation Information

We offer a gorgeous Luxury Double Bedroom with en-suite bathroom and garden view, spacious air-conditioned Deluxe Mixed & Female Dorms featuring single beds, a Standard Mixed Dorm with bunk beds and a Tent for 2 Persons which includes yoga mats & pillows for sleeping.

In order to offer you a comfortable stay we provide a whole array of facilities like free Wi-Fi (on all floors), unlimited supply of 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, a desktop computer and elegant Bistro seating areas to chill & enjoy your meals. There is also a beautiful green garden with outdoor furniture and a swing, as well as a huge rooftop to enjoy our peaceful location.

For the love of your taste buds we also offer a healthy and diverse 'ITH Bistro' 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.

April 1, 2015 onward our prices for the Dorms and the Tent will include 'Basic Breakfast', which is Toast + Masala Chai. This can be upgraded to a breakfast item of your choice from the ITH Bistro food & drinks menu for Rs.150. Our Luxury Room has breakfast of your choice included.
