We are excited to announce that ITH Assi is now open at Assi Road, Varanasi – just a stone’s throw away from the popular Assi Ghat!
ITH Assi comes into being with the association of International Travellers’ Hostel and The Tripling Backpackers (TTB) – a backpackers’ hostel from the guys at The Tripling Bistro. The TTB Family will operate the hostel.
The original ITH at Vidyapeeth Road will now be tagged as ITH Cantt in order to denote its proximity to the Varanasi Junction Railway Station (also commonly known as Varanasi Cantt Railway Station), and to distinguish between the two properties.
ITH Cantt features an in-house bistro that serves a full menu of freshly prepared homemade meals as well as drinks. On the other hand at ITH Assi the TTB Family will cater to our guests from their nearby bistro, which they started a little over two years ago. Guests can of course also visit the bistro to enjoy a multi-culinary delight on their fantastic terrace which overlooks the river Ganges on one side and the bustling Assi Road leading to the Assi Ghat on the other.
International Travellers’ Hostel first opened its doors to travellers over five years ago. Earlier this year, to celebrate all these years, we also launched the ITH Passport. When you hand over an ITH Passport you essentially hand over a free night to a traveller of your choice – it’s our way of rewarding travellers for travelling! The good news is that ITH Passport will now also be valid at ITH Assi.
In the coming days we will continue to optimise our website and social media channels to include both the properties. Meanwhile we welcome our guests to check-in at the brand new ITH and provide us with your invaluable feedback. The hostel is pretty much still in the making. Your opinion will greatly help us improve our services & facilities.
