You can sit with them and hear the little horror stories about the hotel.The rooms are okay and are good for the price they offer. It is said...

We stayed here for a total of 2 hours and honestly that was enough. The building had no electricity for the entirety of this time although it was promised to come back in 10 minutes (every time we regularly asked) therefore the building was sweltering which was making our two ill friends much worse than they were originally. There was...

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...

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...

“The rooms higher up do tend to have better views, though this isn't the place if you're looking for a fantastic 360 of Varanasi. However, the rooftop is open to everybody and, while pictures aren't allowed, it offers a pleasant picture of the surrounding area.”
