This place is a gem in the middle of a chaotic Varanasi. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable and the owners Harish, his wife and his family go out of their way to make you feel absolutely welcomed in their house. The food is delicious and we found that its the best dinners you can have in Varanasi as...

My Husband and I stayed with Harish-ji and Malika for close to two weeks! most guests seemed to be passing through varanasi, but we wanted to experience more of the day to day life. Homestay was perfect for this, as we got to interact with our Hosts on a more personal level that developed as we got to know one...

I can't recommend this Homestay enough! Mr. Harish and Malika have a beautiful home, with large, clean and very comfortable rooms. There is a courtyard garden for relaxing and very nice dining room in which we ate all our dinners in Varanasi. Malika's cooking is the best food we've had in India so far! You can also view all the...

The rooms are spacious and quiet for a goodnight sleep. Harish is an extremely helpful and knowledgable man and gave us all the...

We loved our stay in Varanasi, especially because of the Homestay. Harish was a very organized, efficient, and helpful host. He arranged transportation for us when we wanted to see Varanasi, and the walking tour was a great way to begin exploring the city. He is very knowledgable about Varanasi and India in general. He also runs a shop on...

Hospitality at this place is just overwhelming. Harish and his family will make sure that you get whatever you need and they always serve with great expertise on what to do in the city. Need a transport to be arranged? Airport pickup? Tour around the city? Restaurant recommendation? There is nothing they could not organise.

I stayed 2 nights at Homestay Varanasi and it was a great experience. Harish was very helpful in planning my time in Varanasi. I went on the morning boat tour and the walking tour, both of which were fantastic. The home cooked meals were delicious and I chose to have all my meals at the homestay. Though it was winter...

Ours was a sudden unplanned trip but thanks to my friend Anindita who told us about the home stay, it turned out to be an excellent trip. Harish ji and his wife Malika made our stay most comfortable. It is a very nice clean place with a wonderful lawn in the middle. The highlight of the place is the home...
