We stayed recently for 1 night at puja guest house. Was meant to be 3 night. Our first problem was we booked a morning boat on the Ganges with the owner for the quoted price of 600 rupees for the boat he said to us "the more people the cheaper for you". So 2 people 300 each 3 people 200... More

From the rooftop restaurant, the highest around; spectacular views of the Ganges surround you. The food is good and there's plenty of it available most ours of the day and night. Rooms are at least comfortable, the bars on the windows protecting you and your belongings from the hands of monkeys. There's even air-con available in a couple... A great... More

And surprise surprise...it was not a pleasent stay. The AC worked only for an hour, mainly producing extreme sounds of a rattling boat and exhaling what can only be described as a mini heatwave in our very grotty room. The whole hotel stank of an uncleaned street toilet. Don't bother with the roof top restaurant either: food is mediocre, that... More

Dozens of countries into the journey, the service at and experience of Puja Guesthouse was a nightmare. From sexual harassment to overall negligence to a final conversation with the actual owner of this (and many other) guesthouses who made it clear - with no eye contact or human connection - that it was just a business and he didn't need...

I stayed with three mates at the Puja Guest House, during my weeks stay in Varanasi. We managed to find room in our price range (absolutely dirt cheap) after a bit of a laugh and joke with the manager. We stayed on the lowest floor the rooms weren't very clean or big, however everything worked perfectly, hot water, flushing western... More

I came here with two friends near the end of a five-week long trip through Bangladesh and India. Please note that our hotel standards after Bangladesh were very low. We hated this place. We did not expect hot water or particularly clean sheets (which we didn't get). The only thing we wanted was a working toilet, which we DID NOT... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in India and also the worst. I have never met people so rude as the manger of the hotel and the manager of the restaurant. At the beginning they try and bully you in to going to their silk shop and to book a tourist trip with them which you'll find out later... More

The only reason to come here is for its great location (within the old city and near the Ganga) and its correct price (600rs for a double room with bathroom). The service is not very friendly, but I would say that for all of Varanasi
