Enough rooms will allows to stay simply. Rooms are small but cosy evening time is the best part of this place due to it located around a temple where most of the street crowd pass on that. It could be noisy but it can be ok . Staff us nice just need to improve their english for better understanding tourists.... More

We stayed in Shivas Guesthouse for two nights. Once you have managed to find it (what is pretty difficult and only works with local help) the location is just 50 m away from one of Varanasis main ghats.From the rooftop restaurant you hsve a great view over river and the City. The staff is friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our room... More

The location of this place was perfect! Right next to the Ganges, and the rooftop view was incredible. Shiva, the owner, was incredibly helpful a well. He set up a private yoga session for my friends and I, and arranged for our airport transportation. All at reasonable prices I might add. Our room was a little warm, and when we... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over my birthday recently. Shiva is great and bends over backwards to make his guests happy... Positives: great customer service, 30 second walk from river, best Masala Chai, room service, cute little rooms, good food. Negatives: I'd heard that your room can be given away if you arrive later.. and I felt the first... More

The arranged for a driver to and from the airport which was much appreciated and convenient. To me... More

This place is not worth the money. Way to expensive for the quality of place. We booked to be picked up at the train sttion, and called to double check. When we arrived we waited over an hour with no one picking us up. The room is very cramped with very little room for our stuff and it is quite... More

+ "Spiritual master guest-house, felt like home! From what he recommended, everything was fine, even if a little more expensive than it would be easy to organize themselves. But prices are adequate. Lovely and inexpensive restaurant on the roof, though not very clean impression, but only ate there and we're all right. Living room feel buddto was in medieval India,... More

The location is really good. 1 minute walk from the Ganges river. A bit hard to find at first but that's with all the Gueshouses in the narrow alleys. The owner is so nice! I was there for Christmas and he organised a Christmas party for the guests and his family to feel like 'home'. I had a hot shower... More

A lovely chai tea welcome from Shiva and his brother when we arrived very early after our overnight train and our room was got ready early for us. Quiet relaxing space on the rooftop. RIght beside the main ghats, great location. Friendly owners-who even gave us his own room when we got mixed up on our travel dates and needed... More

Great location, 2 min from the Munshi Ghat. Two friendly brothers Kailash and Shiva who were always ready to help. Great roof top views. Good food and great value for money. Room was ok for the money had fan and en suite toilet. Make sure you close the windows as monkeys love to take stuff. Looking forward in staying there... More
