My first impression was a friendly welcome from the owner. From there, the experience degrades quickly. I paid 400 rupees for a small room with a fan. The room was okay, but there were food particles under the sheet and mold in the bathroom. There was no furniture available, aside from the bed, and the bathroom didn't have a sink.... More

Overall my experience here was OK. We booked this guest house per a recommendation of someone we met in one of the previous cities we visited. I will say if you contact ahead of time you will be in touch with the owner and can learn the price range of rooms, which will then allow you to gage what room... More

Tuk tuk driver took us here, the place is just O.K., nothing special. I believe we over paid for the quality of the room. The staff was by the worst. We were talked back to and given rude responses more than once from multiple staff members. I would avoid this place at all cost.

Like everyone has said, Tuk Tuk drivers will bring you here. It's a decent hotel with a cool roof top. The restaurant is good with reasonable prices for bing a hotel restaurant. We had two different rooms, the first was 450 for a double then the next night a 300 opened up. The rooms were okay, had a fan and... More

This is a place that tuk tuk drivers will bring you to from the train station - it's reasonably priced, rooms are pretty clean and the restaurant is quite nice. After a 12 hour train journey, however, we didn't really appreciate the manager telling us that we booked the wrong train tickets out of Varanasi and that our train would... More

After being told to 'trust nobody' in Varanasi, I arrived at Sandyha weary and exhausted on the recommendation of my rickshaw driver. As a solo female traveller I wanted a place that had it's own restaurant or was centrally located (as the streets at night can be dubious), had a view and a good travellers vibe. Tick tick tick.

Our taxi driver took us from the railway station to this place, which turned out to be cheap and nice enough, probably an average place to stay in Varanasi. The owner was helpful and the rooftop restaurant was nice. Our 600 rupee room was pretty basic, quite cold (December) and very noisy at night. But there was hot water!

Very cheap, room with hot shower, balcony and wifi...great value for money! Restaurant upstairs had a big menu with lots of nice food! Staff couldn't be anymore helpful and are good honest people!!! Short walk to the river Ganges and monkey temple, lots of markets and shops close by... Highly recommend!

We spent two nights in this hotel where the room was fine for the price. The rooftop is quite nice as well with the possibility to eat at their restaurant. The food was however not that good. Finally the staff for the hotel (not the restaurant) is just disgusting and composed of liers. Be careful with the sunrise/sunset boat trip,... More
