When I entered the hostel I felt a very familiar feeling that I get when I come back home. Its name is "international travellers hostel" but it really doesn't feel like a hostel. I love the people how work here . specially Vikas he is intelligent and very helpful. Overall experience is excellent. Going to stay again when ever I come to Varanasi city of frames.
