  • The good: staff was kind and helpful, the AC in my room worked consistently. At this location you will experience every aspect of Manikarnika ghat (sights, smell, sounds). In Oct, I saw no other tourists in the area. Notes: Wifi works best on lower floors. This is in the narrow lanes of old Varanasi, too narrow for cars so you have to hike in from your taxi. The Manikarnika ghat area is run by hustlers/gangsters -be careful!

  • My eval is based considering this is a budget hotel. As a Budget hotel in India it was really a great option. I hve stayed in other hotels and hostels in India and I think this one may be the best I stayed at in terms of best value for price. Very safe and staff is very friendly and helpfull in every sense, and they do not harrass u like in other places to sell u other services. Wifi is fre and fadt and very strong signal. Food is excellent reliable at a fair price.
