This guest house has a great location, close to Assi Ghat - and has a wonderful family running it, who were always ready to help with tips of what to do, figuring out travel logistics - anything to make guests' stay memorable for all the best reasons. It has a great vibe, and by the time I left, it felt like home.
Banaras Paying Gueast house is a friendly and relaxed stay. The location is very great! The owners (brothers) are friendly and always in for a talk. Also they can organize a boat trip for you and they can recommend a great yoga teacher (just around the corner) The food at the guesthouse is great and the coffee amazing :-). We had a really great stay at Banaras!
So...It took me 2 days of travel to get to Varanasi from Nepal. My train was delayed and it was getting late. I got into a tuk tuk and drove around for an hr trying to figure out how to get to the guesthouse I had booked but all of the roads were closed. I called the guesthouse and was informed it was not possible for me to get there because all of the access was closed due to a festival. It was nearing midnight and I was stranded. The tuk tuk driver took me down to asi ghats and I searched for a place to stay there. Navi (the guy who runs this guesthouse) answered my phone call, made a room available for me when no one else could and came and met me because I couldn't find the place, all after midnight. He took such good care of me and I was so thankful. I was kinda wigging out being a solo female traveller stranded after midnight in an empty town. The next day I had a lovely breakfast and tried to find another place to stay, as Navi was fully booked. That didn't go so smoothly because everyone was booked due to the festival. Navi told me not to worry, he would make room for me. He wanted to make sure I enjoyed my India experience and he has. He helped me with everything I wanted to do around town, linked me up with new friends and made sure I was able to relax and enjoy myself. So in the end, not only is this a great guesthouse with a super chill vibe, Navi will make sure you are really well taken care of and have an amazing experience. Highly highly highly recommend
Happy to leave a review about this place! Great location! Wonderful rooftop where we had Breakfast and sat in the evenings. Thanks for the welcome and Navina Krishna, I am sure that if not for this guest house and not these guys who acted as guides (free!) impressions of Varanasi would not be so bright. (Photos are true. Roof and live looks even better than in the pictures). Will definitely return to this place
Great location, lovely hosts, and amazing city/experience. Naveen sets you up with great guides and drivers at reasonable prices, and he and his family are very good people. We really enjoyed the rooftop at his place, the guesthouse rooftop restaurant beside his place, and the brown bread rooftop. You must take the sunrise boat tour, the guided tour of the temples, and you must try blue lassi. Great city to wander and meet people.
