We booked a double room over email rather than turning up as our train was late in. Once seeing the room we realised we had been overcharged greatly. The rooms are VERY basic. Shared showers are nice enough (bit mouldy) with hot water. Staff are helpful. They offer pick up from the station for 300rs to stop you being scammed... More

I was pick pocked before I arrived in Varanasi. I could organize everything thanks to the helpful staff in the lodge. Thanks again. Value for money is really good. the rooms are okay but could be a little cleaner. But anyways, good guesthouse. Its the real Yogi lodge, dont fall for the scam and go to another ''old yogi lodge".

This place has pros and cons. The pros are it's cheap and in a good location...near to main ghats and golden temple and bazaars. The staff had no issues with us arriving in middle of night off the bus and were nice to chat to. The con is it could be cleaner. Our room hadn't been cleaned properly in a... More

The cheapest combination of food, decent wifi, and decent rooms/bathrooms in one place. Great location too. Be warned that it this is not luxury accomodation by any means; some discomfort should be expected, and you may have to ask for extra sheets, etc. when you need it.

Peeling paint, mould, no sheets .... Do you expect sheets when you pay 1000rs a night for a room? We were given a large ish room on the ground floor for our family. They very kindly gave us 2 mattresses on the floor for the kids. But so mouldy & smelly. Only 2 nights so we can bear it. Food... More

Very good value for the money. The place (rooms, restaurant, ecc) are simple but nice and clean. The staff is friendly and honest, very helpful with everything. Good location, not directly but close to the main Ghats, so you can avoind a little bit of the caos, but still save to walk to. Totally recommended!

We stayed here for a total of 3 nights. It's in a really great location near the River Ganges, and we were given free chai regularly. They do nice breakfasts and the staff are really helpful and friendly - although sometimes, through the friendliness we did get impressions of being push a little to book things through them, even though...

We definitely heard a mixed back of reviews from our fellow travellers over this place but I can only rate for myself... We got a large but super basic (peeling paint, no pillows, no bathroom etc) room for Rs400 per night and found it to be very humid and hot but also clean and spacious. The separate showers were fine,... More

This place was probably the best decision I have ever made in India. I stayed here about 3 nights and every day and evening was filled with laughter, love, dance and good hearted people. The workers are great they are friendly, funny, and fun. Talk to the owner he is a great guy, seems a bit intimidating at first but... More

I hate to rate this, because I am pretty sure I stayed at a different, much less nice Yogi Lodge. I'll rate it a 4 because I think it's a different one, while the Yogi Lodge I actually stayed at deserves a 1 or 2 star review... I stayed at the "Old Yogi Lodge." It is off the main street... More
