Map and Directions


IMPORTANT: If relevant, tell your driver (insist!) to take you to Vidyapeeth University on Vidyapeeth Road, NOT Banaras Hindu University (BHU). It is a common mistake. Insist!

1). Arriving at Varanasi Junction Railway Station:

Get off the train. Come out of the railway station. Turn right on the bustling street. At the junction exit the street to go into the city on the left, then cross 'Englishia Line junction’ to go straight onto Vidyapeeth Road for about 300m. Look out for Gate #2 of Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth University, or just Vidyapeeth University, on your left-hand side (there is a Blue road sign in Hindi facing you, but the backside has English text). When you have reached the gate you will find a quiet alleyway on your right-hand side, close to Hotel Ashoka Grand. Get into the alleyway and look for a green ITH signage! We're about 100m into the alley on the left.

International Travellers' Hostel is about 5-7 minutes walking distance from Varanasi Junction Railway Station. If you feel like you have walked too long - stop, turn around, and look for a huge green ITH signage.

And please do not hire a Tuk-Tuk! It’s not worth the money. They may tell you plenty of stories. Ignore.

2). Arriving at Manduadih Railway Station:

Exit the station and get a Tuk-Tuk to the above directed uni gate. It should cost roughly INR 50 - 80.

3). Arriving at Mughal Sarai Junction Railway Station:

Exit the station and get a Tuk-Tuk or Taxi to the above directed uni gate. The Tuk-Tuk should cost roughly INR 150 - 200 and the Taxi INR 400 - 600. These two options are going to be the most convenient for you. Alternatively, you may also try to get a bus to Varanasi Bus Stand which is about 10 minutes walking distance from the hostel, or get a train to Varanasi Junction Railway Station and then follow the above directions.

4). Arriving on a Bus:

You are brave for taking a bus! In this case you will most likely be dropped off either at Varanasi Bus Stand or in the vicinity of Varanasi Junction Railway Station. The best thing would be to find the train station and then follow the above directions.

5). If you're flying into Varanasi:

Well, go past the baggage claim, then just before exiting the airport there are a couple of pre-paid Taxi booths on the left. You can get an AC Taxi for INR 700. Tell the Taxi driver to bring you to Gate #2 of Vidyapeeth University.

6). Arriving on a Boat?

Haha! No kidding - we’ve heard that it is possible (at least from nearby cities like Allahabad)! It is very unlikely, but just in case you do arrive on a boat, let us know and we’ll pick you up for free! Make sure to de-board at Assi Ghat.
