Suraj Guest House was exactly the kind of accommodation we were looking for during our 3 week trip around India. Travelling on a budget shouldn't have to mean dirty rooms and poor service, so we were more than happy to find that this guest house was clean, nicely decorated and run by extremely helpful staff. It was a little difficult... More

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, restaurant... More

A "real" backpackers dream! This is a basic but clean place, a family guesthouse filled with wonderful people from all over the world! If you are a bit social and outgoing you can really have an amazing time here! We made some wonderful friends and had a great time! And people have nothing but great things to say about this...

I had a very pleasant stay at suraj, good location, clean, safe, nice atmosphere, good place to meet other travellers, prabu is a great host, someone you can have a drink and chat with, they can arrange a guide if you have a short amount of time and taxi service, would definitely recommend to others travellers.

Great, friendly guest house. The place to be in Varanasi! Prabhat and his family are kind and helpful. Clean and beautiful rooms, nice living room with books, free wifi acces, and puppys! incredible view over the Ganges, the burning ghat and the Nepali temple from the rooftop. Suraj Guest house is perfectly located in the center of old Varanasi.

The place was being painted when we stayed, but we were still very happy with our stay! The staff were all extremely accommodating and friendly! Suraj himself was a very informative guide and gave us great tours of Varanasi! He's also a very good kite flyer! The roodtop view has to be one of, if not the best in the... More

This little guesthouse is run by amazing people and I have not stayed anywhere in India with as friendly staff. The guesthouse has a great, laidback atmosphere and chillout spaces and nice views from the rooftop. It's in an idea location, just outside of the busy touristy areas, but within walking distance to everything. As an added bonus, they run... More
