For 7$ a night, we had a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable. Fan was enough to keep us cool, didn't need AC. We used our own padlock on the door so we felt secure. WiFi isn't great but that's norm in India. Location is perfect. Walking distance to all the spots.

Comfortable, clean rooms with wifi for a decent price. Close to the ghats and other attractions. Convenient restaurant attached with fair prices and they will bring your food upstairs should you decide to eat there. Overall, would recommend!

If you are travelling you have to trust people, but don't trust in the staff of this hotel. If you are a hotelier it should be a naturalnessnes to help your guests. Nobody says that should be for free. But selling them train tickets for a price 4 times the standard is more like deception instead of hospitality. Can't recommend...

In my travels in India, I stayed in only one hostel and it was Golden Lodge. If all the hostels were like this then travellers will have an enjoyable trip. As Varanasi goes, it is an extreme reflection of India. The culture and way of doing business at Golden Lodge reflects this. Although I felt safe in the city, I...

I asked management of hotel to kindly ask them to be more quiet but according to management, they were clients and paying just like me so it was ok they would do noise until...
