The staff here are great...they couldn't have been more helpful, and the guest house has a really friendly atmosphere. There's a central seating area, which meant we met several of the other people staying there at the same time as us. The location is also great, as its near to the river and to the main streets with shops, resturants... More

Family run guest house with very kind people which made us feel like at home. Always helpful and nice with us. The place is near the main burning ghat and it is very safe (we've been walking at night there and had no problems). It is very close to Golden Temple and police is always around. Highly recommended.

The Suraj guest house is a great little place to stay in Varanasi, take it for what it is, a safe, family run, very friendly place to keep your bags and rest your head after a day full of sightseeing. The family that own it are simply great and go out of their way to help, if you are thinking... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this guest house for lots of reasons- location is brill, it's secure, the decor is exciting, the cost is very reasonable but mainly because of Prabau the guesthouse owner. He was genuinely a good guy. He gave us great advice, txt me the day before i arrived in varanasi to offer me free pick... More

I've been traveling through India for 2 months and this is one of the best guesthouses I've stayed in! The owner is such a nice guy who helps you with any kind of question. Of course it's somewhere hidden in the narrow streets of Varanasi, but that's more a 'problem' of this city that of the GH. Plus: the owner... More

I came here because it had such good reviews, the only slightly positive thing is the friendly guy who apparently runs the place but is never here. The toilet had a clump of filthy drain heir in it which had also left slop over the seat and hung little stands down the side. The sheets were full of bugs. The... More

A really nice guest house 1min walk from the Ganges. The whole family are really nice, always up for a chat and super helpful. Ask Gaurav to give you the guided tour, definitely helps to get your bearings around Varanasi. I would recommend this place to all travellers. Namaste.

Goro, the manager of the guesthouse was a great guy, he helped me out quite a bit and was very friendly, I really enjoyed his company and appreciated it when he went and brought me the shirts that I ordered from a tailor (which he did for free). The restaurant service was a little slow and they made the odd... More

We stayed here in March during Holi and had a wonderful time. The rooftop is a fantastic place to sit and relax and watch the flow of the Ganges River. The little dog Lucky is super cute and really lovely friendly dog. Gaurav and family were welcoming and helped us during our stay, and even took us on a guided... More
