The Bliss hostel was recommended by a Varanasi native, so we trusted this. Sure enough, we were really happy with the cleanliness and super nice staff. They have a few types of room accommodations for private or shared rooms. I am traveling back through Varanasi tomorrow and already booked a room with them again.

The people are fast to filling requests, and fixing anything that requires maintenence. They have a nice area to chill upstairs and also have pretty clean bathrooms, with hot showers! The people are easy to work with, and very friendly. Good place for a good price. Great for backpackers!

Clean, basic rooms/dorms with clean shared bathroom and constant very hot water at a very reasonable price. We had to move here during Dev Diwali, after a mix up with our previous hotel booking, when it seemed with a million visitors to the city there was not a room to be had anywhere. Rupal is most welcoming and seems genuinely...

Holy City Guesthouse is located a 2 minute walk away from Assi Ghat - which is in the quieter end of Varanasi and popular with backpackers. We found it very difficult to locate the hotel as we now understand that the hotel has merged with 'Bliss Hostel' - so look for this hotel name as it is well signposted. During...
