We had a great room with attached bath and air conditioning and balcony. It was clean and quiet considering the location, the owners are friendly and very helpful. We lived close to the Ghats and the university.

Recently I have been to Varanasi with my family and I chose to stay at "Ishan Paying Guest House" after seeing their online customer reviews. Being a cynic, I always take online reviews with a pinch of salt, but trust me people - I got much more than what I expected. The room was well furnished and clean, have kitchen...

This is a good homestay or guesthouse with a friendly family how runs the place. It's located near assi ghat in a quiet area. Room was good, beds comfortable, AC and fan, hot showers. Room was clean, bathroom could be cleaner. The family made me some awesome food for a fair price. Also great chai! Would stay there again!

We read all the comments and even when we weren't sure about the location, we booked here. We didn't regret. The place is confortable, it's true, the family is really nice, from the grandpa to the charming niece. After sleeping in several guest houses all over India, I must say this one had peculiar features that I appreciated: the white...
