I truly enjoyed my stay at Sanskriti Guest House. Not only was it relatively close to both Assi Ghat and Lankar, but moreover, it was a joy to interact with the dear family. The father is a teacher, the mom is trained as a doctor, and the young, outgoing teens--with whom I had fun conversations-- are both in high school, eager to practice English, and like to laugh. They also were respectful of my privacy, so it was nice to have a balance between both social- and quiet-time. In terms of the space, all rented rooms were on the bottom floor, which was a relief, given the rising temps outside. All rooms also had attached bathrooms with plentiful hot water. My room was painted with a soft yellow color and seemed quite comfortable and aesthetically pleasant. Other rooms had a different decor, if that means something for you.; I did hear other guests say they had mosquitos, but it was not a big problem for my room. The owners offer mosquito-repellent. The rooftop additionally had plenty of yoga-space if one desired to stretch with a view. I also appreciated the fact that, although the building was locked and completely secure at night, it was also possible to easily unlock the door and walk about if one wanted to. There was no roll-down gate, keeping people inside until the owner woke up. Overall, this was perfect place for me, as a solo traveler. If you are with another or even children, I'd recommend their largest room on the far Western side of the building--it's the most spacious and has AC.
