Monu guest house can’t be beat for the price for a simple small budget homestay. With just five guest rooms, this simple home on a Varanasi alley offers the best location for the money. Location is just five minutes away from the most bustling Ghat with it’s nonstop action. Go the other direction and you end up at the Blue Lassie – the best Lassie’s in the world, and if you like Indian Sweets, one of the most famous sweet shops. (Ask Monu for directions.) It’s right around the corner from the Brown Bread restaurant where you can enjoy a lovely breakfast buffet on a roof top. The guest house is not located on the river but rather in a maze of action packed alleyways, filled with people, cows, dogs and motorcycles scooting by. So if you are up for a crazy ride, and are wanting to save money, Monus is the place to go. (But if you don’t want the adventure of small alleys, passing cows and crowds, then skip the homestays.) And as the other reviewers have mentioned, Monu is extremely diligent – he was a wonderful communicator prior to our trip and made sure that every need was taken care of while we were in Varanasi.
Traveler tip: We loved Shree Vegetarian Café – as you come up from the Ghat, after the steps, pass the chai vender on the right then take the alley that heads at a 30 degree angle and it will be on your right. All their Indian food was delicious and the kids also enjoyed their banana Nutella pancake.
