It's not daramsala. Price 400 rupees per double bed room, only cold water, dinner 150 rupees a rice dish, big room. Nice and helpful owner. Silient place. Reserved electric supply. Normal place for motorcycle parking. Located at fence of main Sarnath buddhist temple on small street. One problem, it's access to Varanasi. No public transport to Varanasi (you can try... More

This is the best guesthouse I had ever visited in my life! 1- the rooms are clean, comfortable and cheap. 2- the food provided is healthy, excellent and strictly vegetarian. Most of the vegetables used are grown in the field owned by the host family and they taste just great. The kitchen is tidy and the food is prepared with... More

I only slept a night there in winter 2013, but they deserve credit because this humble and peaceful property is a quiet haven from the rumbling of Varanasi. I arrived at dusk and the owner gave me a flawless room to sleep in. I didn't even have to check in, and that was a gesture which I appreciated. They have... More

Food is served on the top floor with paying in advance & get the token. System is very good & homely food. Its very near to the temple & walkable distance. Varanasi itself is very crowed, but this hotel is on the very road. Parking is really big problem. Once we entered into this hotel, one feel very comfortable.

We stayed two nights in Sarnath so we weren't rushed seeing the sites and could feel the energy of the place and the pilgrims. It was a nice change to a quieter environment compared to the hectic Varanasi. You can indeed hear the chant of Buddha's first sermon from the rooms at Dr Jain's and peak into the dear park....

We stayed one week with Dr. Jain and it was fantastic. The spacious and clean room had a charming balcony and private bathroom. This guesthouse is a heartwarming family place with great hospitality. The delicious vegetarian thali dishes are carefully prepared and served by Jains friendly wife and giggling daughters. Looking forward to visit this wonderful guesthouse again. Sarnath, only...

I stayed with Dr. Jain and his family for over a week, and it was lovely. Sarnath is a great escape from Varanasi if it all gets too much. The food we shared around Dr Jain's house was wonderful. Please do eat there as it's great. We also visited one of the great education projects there, with Tripti Jain. A... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights with the Jain family and visiting relatives. We had every breakfast and lunch with the family around the big table in the courtyard. It felt like being at home with family. This is the kind of experience we wish for when we visit India. The vegetarian (Jain) food was great. The conversation stimulating.... More

We can not say enough good about Jains Paying Guest House. Dr. Jain and his wife are LOVELY people. The rooms are basic but it is a guest house. Still, my wife and I stayed in their room with attached bath and the shower was strong, and everything was super clean. Dr. Jain and his family are very hospitable and... More

We wanted to stay here on a recommendation but unfortunately they were full! Even so, Dr Jain organised us another guest house to stay in and welcomed us into their guesthouse to eat at any time! Mrs Jain is a fantastic cook and we enjoyed the food and conversation here on several occasions. Dr Jain and his wife are beautiful,... More
