Charming like Home

ITH Vintage Homestay is a homestay property by International Travellers’ Hostel. It is set up in a locally well-known bungalow named Sonthalia Bhawan. Placed adjacent to the beautiful Lakshmi Kund (a furrow) in Luxa area, it has a unique positioning amidst the chaotic Varanasi landscape. We welcome you in a calm and quiet location right in the middle of the hustle & bustle.

Our homestay is not just another homestay. Bearing vintage-style décor, we’ve jazzed it up with the spirit of a hostel by offering you a snazzy common room overlooking the Kund – a great hangout joint. Our beautifully decorated inner garden is another wonderful spot to come home to and just relax. The delectable chaaps, momos and sandwiches from the kitchen of Chaap-Ke can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors.

We offer private rooms with both en-suite and shared bathroom facilities. ITH Vintage Homestay is carefully crafted to serve modern travellers. The essentials include Wi-Fi, purified drinking water, parking facilities, hot & cold shower in all bathrooms and vegan toiletries. Cleanliness and safety are among our top priorities.

We welcome you to your home away from home in mystical Varanasi!

Huge thanks to everyone at ITH! They go way way out of their way to help with every issue that could possibly arise for everyone who comes through the door. Kind, thoughtful, warm and efficient. Can't say enough. After travelling India for 6 weeks I haven't encountered this degree of all encompassing care. Food is great, laundry, and a guitar on the wall. Go here, you'll agree with all these comments!
