Very warm and friendly owner, in a great location near the Ghats and in the old city. But complicated to, locate your way through the streets the other side of Varanasi but if you arrange a pick up through them the driver will walk you through the narrow streets

Everyone there was so friendly and helpful, a real family atmosphere. The rooftop is fantastic and I was happy not to see several monkeys (from other reviews I thought they would be all over it! ) Fantastic location close the the Ganges and also the Ghats. Gurav was great, and funny and helpful and definitely made our stay :) Plus Lucky the dog was super cute too!

Absolutely nothing to complain about. Guesthouse is in a prime location. The owner/s are extremely friendly and helpful and make you really feel extremely welcome. I would have stayed longer. if I had stayed longer. Have no hesitation in recommending this guest house.

We stayed here an extra night. The location is great near the river. The family are really welcoming.

In the city of Varanasi as a whole, we didn&'t uncover the people to be particlularly welcoming or hospitable, but our encounter with Prabhu and his household was the complete opposite. From the chai Prabhu gave us when we arrived some issues with a tour guide, we were extremely satisfied with his genuine care for us as his guests. He recommended outstanding restaurants, helped us plan our sight-seeing, and gave us a room to rest in both when we arrived (our room was being cleaned) and before we left Varanasi following we had checked out. The guesthouse is clean, especially for a spot in Varanasi, and we enjoyed spending time inside the lounge location with Prabhu&'s kids, and puppies. There&'s a wonderful view of the city from the roof. Outstanding location (though the city&'s winding alleys are confusing) and we would definitely stay here again and wholeheartedly suggest it to anyone we know visiting Varanasi. There is certainly no cost wireless and it&'s quite fast.

It&'s very close the Ganges. Pretty good location as far guesthouses in varanasi go and not far from some good resturaunts with great food. Room was clean and secure to leave your bags when going out. The roof view is awesome. At sunset seeing all the kids flying kites over the old city and river. We used the guide for the first day to show us around. It made it much easier for my girlfriend and I to get around on our own afterwards as varanasi was our first stop in India. We used their airport pick up too. Which was a big help.

  Customer Review 

The location is pretty nice, tucked among small alleys. The surrounding area has a lot of character, nice area to stroll around and see the street life. Not too faraway from the principal ghat, maybe 10 minutes walk. The value for the money was pretty good and also the location feels pretty safe. I think they serve some breakfast or light snacks, but we never ate there.

Nice household atmosphere, pick up from station is necessary and extremely helpful. The location is good, right near to two ghats. The owner is so helpful with what to do and very good tips on nice restaurants. Rooms are clean and beds are extremely comfortable. A trip with the guest house driver was a fantastic day out, we saw all of the major sights situated outside of the old city-recommended
