International Travellers’ Hostel (ITH) 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.
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.
We look forward to welcoming you in the ancient city of Varanasi!
International Travellers’ Hostel was a fun experience for me. This place is situated in the central part of the eternal city- varanasi. One can step-in with chaos and the peace & aura of this place heal him/her. I met many travellers from the different parts of world who were mostly backpackers. If I talk about the ambience, it’s just so soothing. Their menu includes International and Indian cuisine in a very balanced way (though they do not offer many food items but whatever they offer, they are a kind of master of them) I find this place almost perfect to stay and experience.
We had a wonderful time. We arrived very late, we came from Nepal by bus. We made the booking around 8pm via WhatsApp messages with the boss and were warmly welcomed on our arrival at 11pm. We had a small room but it was perfect for us all after a long day of travel. The next day we moved to another much bigger room, which freed in the meantime. Breakfast is amazing !! Try out Fruit muesli. Perfect to start your day. They offer vegan alternatives, their toiletries are also vegan. They are all very nice and helpful, which was appreciated by us and our kids (3&4 yo). It is located near the station, which is quiet convenient but not noisy though. Perfect !
I love this hostel. It makes me feel like home the staff is so supportive polite and ready for service anytime we need. Ambience great. GARDEN is something hidden treasure in this busy city. Rooms are worthy. Hygienic.
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!
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 !
