I've stayed long term at Eden Halt a few times. It's clean and quiet with a view of the ghats. Most of the rooms have nice shelves for unpacking. But mostly I come back because of Sanjay. Money seems to be the last thing on his mind. He mostly just wants to share knowledge: learn and teach. He's also the only astrologer I've met who freely shares his gift. I've seen him study several peoples charts without ever asking for money. His knowledge of all things India and Varanasi is wonderful. If you have questions about this incredible city he's the one to ask.
