I had a great time here with friendly staff always ready to help you out. We got really acquainted over the course of a week so much so that I know all of the staff names. Amin & his staff really make the place what it is - Comfortable to stay, Lively, Homely and Amazing. I highly recommend this place if you want something quite away from all the chaos and commotion near Ghats or other parts of the city. It is still closer to all the popular destinations you want to visit in Varanasi - The Dashashwamedh Ghat is just 3 Kms away. You have cabs and tuk-tuks/Autos near the hostel at any time you want to go. If haggling with tuk-tuks annoys you just take an OLA CAB (no Uber Yet in Varanasi) which is fairly cheaper than other modes of transportation. I know I am coming back here again just to spend time with the Staff and see Banaras when it is warmer and sunnier.
