Ram Bhawan Kautilya society is an amazing place to stay and I will definitely stay there again when I visit Varanasi the staff made me feel like a part of their family, the food was delicious and plenty of it, and because of the communal dining area you can't help but meet the other guests which makes for a wonderful experience. I will recommend anyone visiting Varanasi to stay here the location is great and they have rooms for every budget
I love Ram Bhawan! This was my second stay in two years, and both times I found the atmosphere inviting, the food delicious, and the space clean and quiet. I love the action of Varanasi, but it can definitely be overwhelming, so having a sanctuary in the middle of it all is so refreshing. I love the staff and all the folks who worked so hard to accommodate me even when the rupee was demonetized and I had no access to cash. I highly recommend a stay at Ram Bhawan!
We did have room for 2 with private bathroom on the top floor. Very nice room, lovely decorations, clean and very friendly. Bathroom is clean and nice. You do have here common breakfast and lunch which is very pleasant. Building is very old and you can feel it - but in a nice way. It really does represent the "atmosphere from Varanasi". Terrace on the roof top where they are now building a new coffee place.
The Guest house is more than a place to stay for a few days and leave.It is more like a place you wish you would come back to in the next years. It felt like home in every sense. The freedom you get and the laid back but happening atmosphere of the people in the gallies will rub off on you. Even in the summers there is less heat inside as the house is a preserved heritage house made using old Indian techniques , so don't let the fact that you won't be provided air conditioning scare you. And also the fact you have to share bathroom since the house is kept the same should not bother you as they are kept very clean with hot water showers. In my opinion , this place is perfect if you a single female travelling since it gives a sense of safety that you feel at the right place. Breakfast and lunch are included , so if you are on budget in your travel to the Holy Ganges , this will help you save some spending and food is home cooked and fulfilling to your soul , especially the lunch. Some rooms have balconies which wakes you up to the sound of temple bells of the morning puja. The location is right next to the Dasaswamedh ghat where the evening aarti happens everyday and I guarantee you feel like you've lived there for a long , coming out of your house to attend the evening aarti. I've met people who have stayed here for years and still come back and stay for even longer.
Located 5 minutes from the river ganges, this hostel is right in the centre of old varanasi in the most happening part of the city, everything is close by. Also, the hotel itself is very clean and spacious, with a rooftop that overlooks varanasi, however the rooftop is unused by the hostel. The interior design of the hostel is very good, i really felt the indian-vibes here, it was incredible. The food is great, however breakfast and lunch times are restricted and the variety is limited. I would definitely recommend this place if you wish to visit varanasi, but just beware that you must pay a compulsory extra 200Rs. to be part of the 'kautilya society' for you to be able to book your rooms, i found that rather annoying. But overall, Ram Bhawan definitely made my trip to varanasi excellent.
