This is a very basic, warm and relaxed family-run guest house with exquisite views of the ghats, the Ganga and the forests beyond. It's a perfect location for the pilgrim/backpacker/adventurer - two minutes from the river between the burning ghat and the Nepali "kama sutra" temple. Traversing the warren of paths from the city/train station/bus stand can be challenging, however,... More

The owner of this place is the best hostel owner I've ever met. Truly one of the nicest men ever, he'll do anything for his visitors and set anything up that you need. The Burning Ghat and the Golden temple are both literally right next door. Stay here!! You can't miss with this place!

This place has a brilliant location right in the heart of the old town/ bazaar only 100 meters from the Burning Ghats! Excellent rooftop with views to the river. Rooms are basic but satisfactory. However, to get to the hostel you MUST have a guide from the hostel otherwise you won't find the place. In other words, you MUST arrange... More

I arrived to the ghats area around 10pm and was told that I would have to find this guest house on foot because rickshaws are not allowed in the area.. I had no idea where it was so walked straight down the main road and tried to ignore all the men that "wanted to assist me". I then asked a... More

A wonderful warm and welcome place to stay! Prabhu and his family are lovely people! Prabhu organized a pick up from the station. Good service! Also necessary, otherwise it's hard to find this hidden treasure :) This 100 years old family house gives an extra dimension to your stay in Varanasi. They offer wifi, excellent cooking and all the help... More

The room was a little small for the price but it had rustic charm. We were welcomed really well and had a great guide take us on a boat tour and show us around. That part was excellent. Food and laundry service available. I would definitely book a room here again.

Well, where to start. If you read their website, they state: "once we have your booking, you can rest assured we also have your room ready." One would think that this is should be obvious, but the thing is, they can't manage their bookings. We where a group of three people, but they could not provide a single room for... More

I booked a room well in advance, and confirmed 2 days before, fixing by email the pick up service from airport. At my arrival nobody showed up, I waited, asked around, sent a message, then I took a taxi by myself. Once arrived they told me that the driver had problems because the (light) rain... Ok, can happen. But then... More

We booked 2 nights at suraj guesthouse through Agoda as we were getting a night train that was arriving in the early hours of the morning. We emailed to let them know we would be arriving late but we didn't hear anything back from them. Once we got to the hotel at about 3.30am we spent about half an hour... More

I spent over a month in Varanasi with my whole stay being at Suraj Guest House. It was a very enjoyable, affordable experience in a very comfortable, spacious room. The guest house is centrally located to the main ghats, Golden Temple, many shops and excellent restaurants. It was there that I met Gaurav Khanna who is an excellent tour guide... More
