Hostel Made for You

Hostel Made with YOU in Mind from the Very Start

International Travellers’ Hostel (ITH) is an award-winning hostel which was set up by a traveller for other travellers. From the beginning we have maintained our integrity 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 ‘Banarasi’ culture.

The hostel is situated just minutes away from Varanasi’s main train station – Varanasi Junction Railway Station (BSB).

Packed With Essential Amenities You Will Love

#MadeforTravellers: ITH is curated to meet the needs of modern-day travellers. Among the included essential amenities are a fast and reliable Wi-Fi Network, free Purified Drinking Water, fully-equipped Communal Kitchen, Parking facility, self-service Laundry facility, Lockers, hot & cold Shower in all bathrooms and Premium Vegan Toiletries. Cleanliness and your comfort & safety are among our top priorities.

We first opened doors to travellers in January of 2013. Our team now looks forward to hosting you in the mystical and unique ‘Banaras’.

What Our Guests Are Saying

  • 5 star review  Friendly and helpful staff. Good atmosphere, backpackers and all. Might get some tips for your next destination. Not a party place. Rather quiet and tranquil. Nice garden to chill (if you don't get biten by mosquitoes). The private room was so nice. Well decorated. Lots of details that made us feel like home. Big and clean bathroom. Water temperature/pressure good. We even got toiletries and all! Recommended by @lifetimetravelmates !

    4 star review  Great place to stay in Varanasi. You get to meet amazing fellow travellers, friendly hosts and staff and good amenities. The ghats are about 3-4 kms away from the place and can be easily reached with share autorickshaws

  • 5 star review  Felt like home😊 The staff was very helpful and cooperative in every means And also the staff were taking full responsibility in making the stay cheerful and asking constantly if there is such any issues in our stay The garden was beautiful and we were allowed to have vibe over there whole night The rooms were clean well spacious. Either you are travelling solo or in group, u will have fun ultimately I only wish one thing that as the winters have begin, if they could provide bonfire in garden It would be 🔥
