Everything at ITH is #MadeforTravellers. Consistently rated as one of the best hostels in India, we feature comfortable dormitories as well as private rooms. Our hostel is curated to meet the needs of modern travellers. The essential amenities include a fast and reliable Wi-Fi network, free purified drinking water, communal kitchen, parking facilities, self-service laundry facilities, lockers, hot & cold shower in all bathrooms and premium vegan toiletries. Cleanliness and safety are among our top priorities.

    5 star review  A Peaceful Heaven in Varanasi I stayed in the International Travellers' Hostel for three days after a first night living in the midst of the old city. I was more than delighted to discover this peaceful hostel. The place is calm, clean and you will immediately feel at home here.  I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to visit the chaotic city of Varanasi, while having a nice place to relax in the evening.I loved how the staff cared for me, the delicious food (and chai), and the peaceful and friendly atmosphere!

    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 !
