The hotel is not so bad and our room was quite clean for indian standards.. the restaurant is also ok. At the end they added 8% tax on the restaurant bill and also the room even though we agreed on the price... What bothers me most about this place is the fake kindness, which is their way of getting more... More

We randomly came across this lodge. The first night we got there, we were invited to go on a boat cruise on the Ganges to witness Dev Deepawali celebrations. It was unreal. The food in the kitchen upstairs was delicious and reasonably priced. We ate there for pretty much every meal. Me and the girl I was traveling with got... More

Not many positive about this guest house other than the decent/cheap food and the social environment the restaurant provides for backpackers. It has OK views from the roof. Otherwise, I was left with a sour taste in my mouth. -Upon arriving and enquiring about a room I was promptly shown the MOST expensive room first without him letting me know... More

I was looking for a cheap place where to stay in Varanasi, I decided to stay here for a couple of nights because Iwas exahusted of searching. The position of this HOTEL (not a guesthouse at all if you're looking for family business) is good, 5 minutes by walk to the the ghats. My room with attached bathroom was a... More

Sandhya quest house ticked all the boxes - great prices on rooms, excellent food, great location for the ganga! Would recommend to anyone- couples, kids or single travellers who want a good vibe at night in the roof top restaurant

For starters. If you are a budget traveler, seek no further for most rooms run about 5 USD per person. Secondly, the staff are absolutely amazing. After a 14 hour bus ride from Nepal with no money and no ATMs working in the city the staff payed my cab driver for me so I didn't have to deal with the... More

Good and cheap room, nice view on Varanasi. Good position respect to the main gat and nice restaurant in the top floor. Service is awesome. Possibility to have or not the air conditioning, may help because of the hot climate in summer. The owner and his family are very kind, as tjhe guys travelling there too. Good place to meet... More

We just stayed here for one night. We walked to the ghats with a guide from the hotel both times we went but the route seemed very confusing and I'm not sure i would've remembered the way on my own. Hotel staff seem a bit moody, especially if you don't eat all the food. Food was good. Restaurant on the... More

Our journey through Nepal and India was incredible, but Sandhya Guesthouse was the pits of our stay. We stayed in some pretty shabby places, but it never mattered because the staff or cultural experiences made up for that. But Sandhya was, simply awful, and to be honest, rather frightening. The owners were intimidating, demeaning and rude, especially in the evenings... More
