I would highly recommend staying with the Kapurs. From the minute you arrive till you leave you will feel as though you have friends looking after you. The homestay is a lovely residence just outside the busy chaos of Varanasi. But within easy distance. I prefer the two rooms on the top floor. They are upstairs, and slightly removed from... More

Traveling to India for the first time, my girlfriend and I showed up to the Ashray not knowing what to expect from a homestay. Our hosts Mr. and Mrs. Kapur welcomed us into their home, and their India, with extraordinary warmth. First off, Mrs. Kapur's cooking is absolutely world-class. She grows a lot of her ingredients in her own garden... More

My husband and I had never been to India before, and we were eager to find peaceful oases from the slew of new experiences we expected to find in this amazing country. We hoped, as well, to be enriched and informed by staying with families, rather than in hotels. The Kapurs provided both, and we're grateful to them for their... More

It was so wonderful to leave hotels behind and experience a homestay in India, and staying with the Kapurs exceeded our expectations in every way. The greeting and care we received was so warm, kind and genuine. They were interested in our experience in Varanasi and totally committed to our comfortability in their home. There's free wifi. We had dinner... More

We stayed there for 2 nights at the conclusion of a five week tour of northern India. The Kapurs were extremely cordial and their food is some of the best we had in India. Our room was basic but fully equipped and extremely clean. There was free WiFi. Our one regret is that -- since we had booked through an... More

We stayed at the Aashray Homestay for two nights. The location was a short rickshaw ride to the Ghat, the meals were excellent, but the most amazing part was the conversation and shared experiences. We had quiet conversations with Mrs. Kamal during dinner that gave us a feeling for life in Varanasi. Mr. Kamal accompanied us on a boat ride... More

Varanasi is a beautiful but not easy city for western people. So we were lucky to found this hidden treasure far from filthy historical center. Mr Kapur and his wife treated us like children, offering the best Asian Vegetarian specialties for breakfast. Sunrise guided tour on Ganga was simply amazing!!! The house is not central but a quick tuktuk or... More

This is what a homestay should be. Mr. and Mrs. Kapur were so incredibly helpful and welcoming - we just fell in love with them. Mr. Kapur is able to arrange tours around Varanasi, and he even came with us for sunrise over the Ganges on our last morning. He knows so much about the city having grown up there,... More

Staying with the Kapur's is like nothing else. We were welcomed into their home with a tika and flower garlands despite arriving very late. They quickly became like our Indian grandparents, so warm and lovely. The room is simply wonderful. We took the downstairs classic room and it was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and a perfect retreat from the hectic... More
