This place is relatively clean and the price are correct. However, they started partying very late and there is not respect for people who want to relax or sleep. I don't recommend this place. it is very cheap for certain room, but if you have much better options for the budget of standard rooms.

Yogi Lodge, besides being built over a more than 200 year building and being beautiful and one of a kind has a great staff that are extremely helpful, cheerful and and happy all of the time. The place has different kinds of options for lodging, from the cheapest you can find in India and Varanasi to individual rooms with bath... More

Our stay in Yogi Lodge was a last minute decision as the hostel we had booked online apparently had "no room" when we arrived. We stayed in a private room with no outdoor windows and a large grate on the wall which opened on to the central inner courtyard which all the rooms centre around. The employees were diligently enthusiastic... More

Cheap guesthouse for budget travelers. It's located in old Varanasi close to the ghats. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Quite clean for what you pay. Some reviews complain about 11pm curfew but I find this rather common in Indian guesthouses. Also I believe it's more recommendation than order.

Helpful staff. Spacious, clean room. Good pancakes. It's in a wonderful location, 5-10 minutes to the nearest ghat in the heart of the old town. Unfortunately, this does mean it is quite a pain to access, as cars and tuk-tuk's can't make it to the hotel, so you have to walk the last bit of it. But this was a... More

Great location in Varanasi! The staff were very helpful during our stay and even came to find us when we got lost. The rooms are basic but clean and has a great area downstairs to relax in. Stay here on your next trip to Varanasi.

Major points to note about this guest house are as follows: (1)The staff are unfriendly, very sarcastic and there's always a group of at least 6 male "staff" hanging out in the communal area. Very awkward atmosphere there, especially in the evening. (2) There is an 11pm curfew. (3) The food is absolutely terrible. (4) The hot showers only work... More

We called in advance to secure a room as we were unsure of how busy Varanasi would be so soon after Diwali. The hotel offered to pick us up from the airport (we made our own way there - but the cost would have been much the same). Finding the hotel in the maze of streets was quite a challenge... More
