What goes for hostels, International Travelers’ Hostel is the best one I have stayed in during my time in India.
The rooms are light and clean. What is very important for me is that the bed sheds was clean as well. Having traveled India for a while it was a delight to sleep in a good soft bed! The common area is a light and colorful area as well where you can sit and relax after a day in the busy Varanasi.
The staff and the owner are very friendly and take good care of you! I got sick while staying in Varanasi and the owner and his family took so good care of me, provided me with whatever I needed to get better!
The hostel is located 5-10 minutes from the railway station so you don’t need to take an auto in order to reach it. Still it is easy, and fast, to reach the old city. It is located in a quiet area of Varanasi which for me weighs a lot!
If I go back to Varanasi I will definitely stay at International Travelers’ Hostel and will recommend everybody else to do the same!
