We picked Shiva Guesthouse from the trip advisor reviews and what a good choice. Tucked down one of the lanes south of the high street it was a welcome retreat from the wonderful colours and chaos of Varanasi. What an amazing city and a photographers dream. (Don't forget your camera. You will regret it). Our plan was to stay a... More

My partner and I originally intended to only stay for a couple of days but extended this due to the photographic gem that is Varanasi. The hospitality extended at Shiva Guesthouse was fantastic. Shiva offered valuable insight into the best places to go for sightseeing, shopping, exploring and eating. That said we often opted to eat at the guesthouse where... More

Me and my friends stayed here for two nights and it was our favourite guesthouse of the month! AMAZING food cooked by Shiva's sister, very good host (gave us an extra room to rest after a long journey!) and great location! We took a guide who was great and highly recommended as Varanasi is pretty hard to do navigate. All... More

Shiva was very nice to welcome us althought his GH was full so we could rest. Shiva, our host, has been very helpful and always there when we needed him. He made us... More

You should visit the rooftop for a fantastic sunset view over the Ganga river. Great place to stay in Varanasi, also because of the very central location. We will... More

My boyfriend and I arrived in Varanasi so happily pleased to be staying at Shiva's Guest House. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed and led up to the cutest and homiest room. You can tell a great deal goes into maintaining the guesthouse, as all the bathrooms are being renovated / or are currently being renovated. Besides the room, there... More

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
