Matching the class and services of European hostels, Zostel still manages to retain a great deal of Indianness in its character. The staff is super helpful and always in for interesting conversations on the city's unique and quirky elements. The rooms are clean & comfy and a large common room makes for a great place to connect with other travellers and hear stories of their Banarasi experiences. Helps you make the most of your stay in this abundant city where no time seems to be sufficient. WiFi and breakfast are fast and fulfilling! The walking tours on offer are amazing, giving a lucid overview of Banaras' history and a neat peep into a day in life of Banaras. Overall - great place to camp at when in Varanasi. Totally recommended! :)
While this hostel is only recently open, we had an excellent stay here. After travelling in India for a while, Zostel provides an excellent service that many travelers may find hard to find in a lot of Indian cities. The guys were great and were always there to give you advice on where to go and what to eat etc and even took us around themselves. Would love to stay here again and see the place go from strength to strength once they have all there extra services put in place. Totally worth staying here for a couple of days since my two nights were not enough. Keep up the good work guys! :-)

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.
Fastest Wifi I have experienced in any hostel globally till date, super communal atmosphere, clean as hell and a helpful staff that goes beyond the call of Duty for guests. Free breakfast I and evening Chai are great and the tours and activities through the day are incomparable.

Very close to Varanasi train station, good dorms and nice social room. The staff were very helpful and made good suggestions.
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.

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.

The staff was friendly. Good location, very central (although hard to find at first).
You will never stay in a more colourful guest house than the monu. Friendly atmosphere- superb location and above all a reliable place to stay at.

The rooms were nice and clean, the air conditioning worked well, location was good but difficult to find.
Its right on the River, has a rooftop restaurant with great views, its colourful, and it's a nice place to relax when it's too hot to go wandering around.

The staff were very nice and helpful They arranged a decent priced evening boat trip which was great We had a train in the afternoon and they let us stay free of charge in the room after our actual checkout time Arranged a cheap tuk tuk to the train station
Varanasi we found to be hectic, noisy and dirty and full of people trying to get money from you. So to be able to walk or tuktuk down to Rahul Guesthouse just beyond Assi Ghat takes you to a quiet place where you can just relax on their rooftop restaurant. Super efficient and friendly owner who has your best interests at heart. He will organise most things for you and he keeps the process down. He is expanding the business so it will get better.

Great location by the river (once you figure out the alley ways!) and good rooftop view. Friendly staff and comfortable room. Booked one night but stayed three.
The location could not be better: it is a 2 minute walk from the river and the main ghat. The building had character and (while it would have been difficult to find alone) was in a dynamic little neighbourhood. It was nice sitting on the rooftop experiencing sunrise, but it was much nicer walking down to and along the river in the early morning, which is perfectly accessible and and enjoyable to do. Young Suraj was very nice and made the stay worthwhile. They also organized airport pick-up and were easy to find at the airport.

Nice hotel at the bank of Ganga River. Nice view. Near all main attachments. Helpful staff.
great location, with a really honest, friendly and helpful bunch of guys that run the place. The hotel has excellent security, and the rooftop is really superb, with great views with good food at the restuarant. My room was clean, and the mattress new with clean bedding. i would totally reccomend this hotel. room 302 is excellent.

Perfect place for the budget traveller! Couldn't ask for a nicer family to stay with, they are super friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. Value for money could not be better ~ clean simple rooms with or without bathroom, secure and safe plus free wifi! The location is fine, it's slightly back from the old city and the river but it's only a 5min walk that we enjoyed each day through a vibrant street with great street food along the way!
We stayed at the cheapest room on the rooftop and liked it a lot! The room has big windows and the roof top felt like our own balcony on top of Varanasi. The hotel has a great atmosphere. The owner is so friendly. He helped us a lot during our first days in India and arranged train tickets for us.
