karinaguzz It is a wonderful place. The staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming, the room as clean and very comfortable, and the patio upstairs has a gorgeous view of the Ganges. Plus, the food was incredible!

gagandeva My wife and I stayed at the Suraj Guest House recently. Everyone knows how in-your-face Benares is and so it was awesome to find a simple, quiet, clean and central guest house with an honest guy running it. After a phone call the owner arranged for the rickshaw to drop us near the guest house, and one of the workers, who was waiting for us helped carry our luggage to the place. They made us feel very welcome and part of the family. Be prepared for power cuts though and book ahead as it's pretty busy. Enjoy

a.9107 Nicely maintained and relaxing hotel, the reception staff were excellent. The food in the restaurant was very good, but the waiting staff were a bit rude and sneering.
ensober Nice but basic rooms, the real value here is the family owners - both Papu and Tripti are great, Papu is a fountain of local knowledge and his Ghats area sketch is better than any guidebook map. Make sure you try the Kashmiri stuffed potatoes - they're amazing!

Alexandra.O I stayed for 3 nights at Old Yogi Lodge at the end of march . I was travelling solo and I was very happy with the services if you compare them to the price. The place was pretty clean. Food is not your top restaurant one but they did try to accommodating my needs as much as possible. The manager is very helpful and I also took a boat ride one morning+ visits to some temples that he was organizing at a very cheap price. All in all it is a good place for backpackers and for those looking for simple accommodation.
