ITH is a retreat hostel. Dada and Rajesh made me feel at home – it didn't feel like a hostel at all. Dada is an amazing person – a caring manager. The hostel was spotless and the food – delicious!! Thanks so much Dada & the team! xxxx

Riverside & Boat Tours

Ringing temple bells and stretches of river banks crowded with devotees – boating on the Ganga in Varanasi is an enchanting experience. You can book morning and evening boat tours with us.
