This was a really friendly family-run guest house. Prabhu was extremely welcoming and helpful , he even gave me an extra single room for free when I was sick! The location is great - about 2 minutes walk from the ghat and about 10 minutes walk from the main road, the only downside being the occasional musicians accompanying bodies down... More

I just want to say thank you to Prabhu and their family. I felt like at home in his Guest House. They help me out with my arrival and They warned me about the people who tried to cheat me. Prabhu took time everyday to recommend me new places to visit and suggestion about what to do and whet not... More

In usual circumstances, you would take a night train to Varanasi from New Delhi and reach around 10am. From there, an auto ride to the Lalita Ghat, next to Manikarnika Ghat, near to Dasahswamedh Ghat. You got to walk through the lanes leading to Kashi Viswanath Temple, and once you reach the entrance, turn right to the alley opposite the... More

Great location for the old city, close to all must see sights. Very friendly owner with a large number of staff/family to help with anything you may need. The guided tour on the first day is a must to further navigate through the maze of back streets. A stones throw from one of the many Ghats and temples, would stay... More

My friend and I visited Suraj guest house this August and we felt we needed to be constantly on the alert against scams from the 3 men running the hostel themselves. We feel we were overcharged for an unfinished walking tour (600 RS) as well as the hostel run boat tour (500 RS - normally boat rental is half that).... More

I wrote an email to Suraj they day before my arrival enquiring for a room. They told me it wouldn't be a problem and arranged a driver for me for a reasonable price - 200 rpe. That's where the good part ends. When I arrived there, there was actually no room available so they brought me in an other hotel,... More

Really happy with our stay here. Great location, very central to the old city and the ghats which is really what you'll be wanting to see. Staff were very helpful - helped us arrange transport to and from the station, boat trips, places to eat. The place has a lot of character and though the rooms are basic it's clean... More
