As far as location goes, this guesthouse is well situated with a rooftop view of the Ganges, however its the staff that holds this guesthouse back. The men which work there are constantly on your back in order to upsell boat services, massages, clothes or guided tours through Varanasi. You cannot make any conversation with them before an attempted sale is made. This gets really annoying as Varanasi is a city already renowned for relentless street peddlers everywhere. After spending an entire day telling peddlers youre not interested it is disappointing to return to your hotel and have the guesthouse staff do the same to you. Cleanliness-wise, more work could be put into this guesthouse. When we checked into our room, there were still sweat stains and hair still left from the previous occupant. It took some discussing with the staff before they finally agreed to change the sheets however did not want to change the pillow-case even though it was obvious that the bed had been slept in but the sheets havent been changed. The bathroom has also built up a layer of soap scum on all the walls; a simple scrub would remedy this however it has simply been left. The staff give the impression they do the bare minimum to the guesthouse and prefer to work on commission to upsell other services. There are reasonably-priced many guesthouse nearby, Id suggest shopping around.
