About Us

International Travellers’ Hostel was set up by a traveller for other travellers. Since starting out in 2013, the hostel has remained true to the spirit of independent and adventure travel. We’ve combined the best of a modern and yet elegant backpackers’ hostel—where you can meet like-minded travellers—with the warmth of a homestay, giving you the opportunity to acquaint with our culture.

Our hostel offers several outdoor and indoor communal areas. There is a lounge area with a TV, card and board games. Other areas include a garden and a sun terrace. Free Wi-Fi access is available everywhere on the property. Dhyān, our in-house vegetarian/vegan bistro, serves fresh food. The à la carte breakfast included in the price is freshly prepared in the morning and is served with our signature Masala Chai.

Lockers as well as a shared refrigerator are available. There is a vegetarian-only kitchen facility. Free on-site parking is available.

International Travellers’ Hostel is located within 8-minute walk from the Varanasi Junction Railway Station and the Varanasi Bus Station. Manduadih Railway Station is located within 4 km. The Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport is 22 km away.

The hostel is only minutes away from popular touristic spots − 3.5 km from Kashi Vishwanath Temple, 4 km from Dashashwamedh Ghat and 10 km from the Buddhist pilgrimage site, Sarnath. The noteworthy Bharat Mata Temple is just an 8-minute walk away.

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.
