We arrived to shiva's guesthouse to be warmly welcomed by Shiva and Kailash; two brothers and very helpful, accommodating hosts. This hostel is very well located in the old town, just a 2 minute walk from the ghats and not much further to the main temples of interest. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and our ensuite bathroom was... More

Very nice place on a very central location in bustling Varanasi. The room is clean, comfortable (airconditioning!) and nice decorated. A peaceful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff (they can arrange transport to the airport or train station if needed.) Great value for money!

Nice and clean hostel near the Ganges and in the middle of a bazaar, but up a quiet sight street. The owners, Shiva and Kailash, were so friendly and helpful. Kailash prepared a little lunch for us when we arrived, although rooftop restaurant was closed. He also made the reservation for us for the train to Gwalior. Shiva provided us... More

2nd stay at the Shiva - friendly staff, clean, safe & excellent (very cheap) home cooked food. Great location for accessing the Ghats. Hotel is up a side street so ring ahead for instructions or ask a local for instructions how to find them Highly recommended

Extremely good location right next to the main ghat. Kailash and his family who runs the place are lovely and extremely helpful. They would cook a great meal for you in the evening for a reasonable price along with a friendly chat and a great view of the ganges from the roof. The staff will also give you great advice... More

Great location if you want a bit of everything, 2 minutes walk to the Ganges and 10 minutes walk from the main ghat. Lots of lovely coffee shops and restaurants in the near by alley ways. Lovely clean room with character, don't leave anything next to the windows as the odd monkey may stick his hand through the bars. A... More

The host Kailash was extremely helpful and welcoming, this was really nice, he helped me take care of a whole list of things I had to deal with when I arrived, and offered good advice about transit, post, etc. The restaurant was simple yet good quality for breakfast, and nice enough for a dinner if you arrive late (there are...

Most important reasons for choosing this guest house - brilliant location near to ghats, very good and caring staff, small, but clean and cozy rooms. Owner of the guest house was very helpful. Good relation for the price.
