Run by a friendly family, a short 15mins walk away from the main ghats. Ideal if you're looking for a quiet location, and much cleaner than backpacker places you'll find next to the ghats. We love Sona & her family - who always made us feel right at home from the first night. Thank you for the pleasant stay!

Run by a friendly and helpful family. Quiet residential location away from hustle and bustle, but only a 15 min walk to the old town.

Amazing vibe, location and one of the best run hostels in India. Good wi-fi, very helpful and friendly employees, awesome tours of Varanasi and an awesome, relaxed and communal atmosphere. The included breakfast was great and the free chai in the afternoon an added bonus. Easily one of best hostel experience in India.

The moment you step into Internatinal Travellers' Hostel, you feel welcomed. It has a very relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and open, and always eager to help you out, from giving tips how to get around in the city to taking you out for a drink. It is very clean, and showers, AC, fans and WiFi actually work all the time. Another great factor is that drinking water is provided, so you don't have to buy bottles and throw them away. Food is very tasty and carefully prepared, as well. The dorm beds are clean and comfortable, and the common areas are cool to hang out together. Especially the swing in the garden is fun. All in all, it's a great place to relax from the heat and the chaos of Varanasi, a place you look forward to return to in the evening.
