I wasn't sure what to expect at Groovy Ganges, but in retrospect it was one of the most memorable experiences of my time in India. It was so much more than a regular guesthouse experience - more of a home stay. For me the highlights were: Bunti's cooking, which is simple but delicious, very hygienic (all water is purified) and...

I stayed at this wonderfully warm and welcoming homestay for 5 weeks in September and October, and can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I have had in over two years travelling in India. I came to Varanasi to study Hindi with a private tutor, and Groovy Ganges was the ideal place for me as a solo...

What a lovely property! I also highly recommend the tour! Nandan is extremely informed on a variety of topics and great to talk to! You will enjoy it!

I stayed here for 11 nights last months, and absolutely loved what Nandan and his family have created. Groovy Ganges is truly a special place, in one of India's best cities. I felt very taken care of here, and the entire family made me feel welcome throughout my stay. My room was immaculate, as was the bathroom. The kitchen had...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
GroovyGanges Guesthouse is a family run business near Assi ghat (southern ghat), in the city of Varanasi, India. We are located about 3 minutes walking distance from Assi ghat in a neighborhood called Bhadaini. Away from the downtown area of Godowlia but close to the ghats and the university makes GroovyGanges Guesthouse an ideal place to stay.Staying at GroovyGanges always provides you an opportunity to learn more and more about the real Indian culture because the owner’s family also stays in the same building. If you are a Hindi student then come and practice you Hindi with native Hindi speakers from the owner’s family, if you are just a tourist then come and talk about India and Varanasi with our guests and the family and after all if you have some free time and have any interest in doing something good for the society then volunteer for the organization that are affiliated with Groovy Ganges Gueshtouse. ... more   less
