Yogi Lodge is probably one of the oldest hostel in Varanasi, and it seems to me that they have learnt from their experience. The place is clean, and the prices are cheap and fair. Our room was just what we wanted as we didn't expect to spend much time in the hostel but walking around the city. The staff is... More

Very cheap clean neat rooms, quiet, and located in the lovely old city, close to the river, the main gath, and good restaurants and markets. Good prices and quality also for food. People who work there are kind and available for any help. It is as a family environment. Be aware: there are other two fake yogi lodge in town... More

This place is relatively clean and the price are correct. However, they started partying very late and there is not respect for people who want to relax or sleep. I don't recommend this place. it is very cheap for certain room, but if you have much better options for the budget of standard rooms.

Our stay in Yogi Lodge was a last minute decision as the hostel we had booked online apparently had "no room" when we arrived. We stayed in a private room with no outdoor windows and a large grate on the wall which opened on to the central inner courtyard which all the rooms centre around. The employees were diligently enthusiastic... More

Cheap guesthouse for budget travelers. It's located in old Varanasi close to the ghats. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Quite clean for what you pay. Some reviews complain about 11pm curfew but I find this rather common in Indian guesthouses. Also I believe it's more recommendation than order.

Helpful staff. Spacious, clean room. Good pancakes. It's in a wonderful location, 5-10 minutes to the nearest ghat in the heart of the old town. Unfortunately, this does mean it is quite a pain to access, as cars and tuk-tuk's can't make it to the hotel, so you have to walk the last bit of it. But this was a... More

Great location in Varanasi! The staff were very helpful during our stay and even came to find us when we got lost. The rooms are basic but clean and has a great area downstairs to relax in. Stay here on your next trip to Varanasi.
