We stayed at Monu family paying guesthouse in November 2014 and we loved it. Monu and his family are so friendly and we felt like home from the first day. Thanks for lovely food, great company and all the help with further planning our travel. Monus sweet and beautiful wife, Gunja is a wonderful cook and we can definitely recommend... More

Arrived after dark so organised an airport transfer. Even though we were delayed over an hour our driver was waiting. We wouldnt have found the guesthouse without the porters help. Guesthouse is really clean and the owners wife cooks up excellent food. We ate there loads and even did the cooking class. It was cold at night but the room... More

Good quality\price. Train Station Transfer is a bit expensive but good. Part of the way is by walk because it's in the heart of the center in pedestrian street, which is good because there is no road so no traffic noise. Someone helped us carrying our stuff on the walking part. Friendly service and nice room and bathroom.

Pretty nice place, quiet and hidden in Varanasi. The guest house is far enough from busy streets to be quiet but is in less than 5 minutes walk from the main gath and the crazy life of Varanasi. Monu and his family are lovely and helpful, the rooms are clean and full of colours, it's definitely a good place to... More

Although we had originally only planned on staying a couple of days in Varanasi, my girlfriend became very ill as we arrived and we wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else other than Monu's. The whole family was fantastic, cooking us food, bringing drinks and generally providing a level of care far beyond what we would expect of a guest... More

- arrange for pick up, this place would have been impossible to find on your own. others have written that it's "overpriced", but it's worth the headache. - the hosts were great. couldnt have asked for more. they also offered practical advice, particularly regarding dodging the cheaters and such. - rooms were comfortable and clean, bathroom was clean and as...

Rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need. Location is excellent and you won't get a better view into true Indian homestays anywhere else- couldn't recommend the cooking class enough, learnt so much with monu's wife and mother. Very welcoming family- thank you.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night (we were supposed to stay 2, but our flight got delayed) in June and we were SOOOOO happy the air conditioning (A/C) worked so well due to how hot it was outside. The family that owns it were all very friendly and helpful. Monu (the son) was especially helpful, and his... More

Room is clean and bed is big enough for 2 adults. You can use wifi in your room. Location is great but difficult to find yourself. Walk into the main street to the Golden temple, then turn right at the corner with MEGU cafe adv and go along the street to the cafe even after passing by. Then keep walking... More
