The owner family who is running the hotel was very friendly and helpful to us. We used the laundry service but they also offered more service like water and medicine for a friend of mine who felt sick. The rooms were very nice for the small money and you can also pay by international credit card, which seems to be...

The owner is a really friendly guy. Great location, a couple of minutes walk from the ghats and cafes around. (I recommend Bana Lassi, great chill spot) From/to the main train station we paid 130/150rs for a tuk-tuk, though we were told you could get it down for 100rs. Quiet location, it's amongst the alleyways, so no traffic noise. Rooftop...

It was my 3rd time to visit Varanasi and I stayed there only for one night but it was the best stay in Varanasi. It's run by a family and they were very warm hearted, and helpful. And they accept credit card. The room was basic but old style building has a comfy atmosphere and you can sit down chairs...

We had a great stay at Baba, great location in the beautiful Old Town, 1 minute from Mushi Ghat, which is perfectly in the middle of the ghats. Lots of cafes, restaurants etc within a minute or 2 walk, markets around 5 minutes walk away. Comfortable room and amazing rooftop looking out over the Ganges. Gopal was a character who...

We arrived in the evening and were pretty tired so we took it, but on reflection I'd have stayed somewhere else. Our room was small but ok for 2 people for a short while, but there was no way to get fresh air since the windows opened into the internal atrium (where we had people sleeping on the sofa directly...

The family is nice but there is none of the backpacker vibe, which this area of Varanasi is famous for. The family occupies the whole ground floor, I felt like visiting nosy distant relatives. The rooms are very small and used, no privacy, the "windows" go to the inside of the hallway and are covered by wooden planks, normally somebody...

Honestly I only stayed here because my other guesthouse was so horrendous and I'd just gotten off an 18 hour bus ride and I was exhausted. I guess my biggest complaint to make is the level of noise in this place. The family love on the ground floor and there seems to be no consideration for the peace and quiet...

A very friendly welcoming, it's very clean and the localization is good ! Owned by a smart family, with clean rooms, correct prices, and one of the cleanest bathroom I've ever seen in India in this price category. Warmly recommended ! I discovered it in 2014 and went back in 2015 without any question !
