Yes, I have to say this guest house is still a safe place to stay if you are in Varanasi….but for all the others aspects I recommend people to go somewhere else! The room was completely dirty, a lot of dust. Same for the bathroom : this is like it has never been cleaned since months. One pleasant point, we... More

On the first day when we arrived a guide from the guesthouse was showing us the way to the Ganges and after that he explained something about the river as well. Finally we went to a shop with him where they screwed us over for a scarf. He is getting a lot off commission from the shopkeeper if he brings... More

We arrived in Varanasi, without a place to stay - approached by a taxi driver, he offered us the sandhya guest house and skeptically we accepted! Upon arrival we were nicely greeted and shown a very nice room! We then headed up to the restaurant to meet the owner Bose, we was very helpful telling us places we could visit... More

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

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
