During my day visit(yes it was a day visit, arrived 430 am and flew out at 1815!) to Kashi , I needed a place to freshen up in the morning and have some simple breakfast. Started options explorations during my overnight train journey from Delhi and Stops hostel was recommended by a fellow traveler`s friend who lives in Kashi. Prompt responses of my SMS were rather reassuring, although idea of staying in a hostel at the young age of 50 was a little uncomfortable.My auto guy took me to various other options until I convinced him to drive to this place. Not the easiest place to find , but worth the effort. Born and bought up in India followed by last 25+ years in England ,this place managed to satisfy both cultures. Homely to the extent that they even ran out of milk for tea soon after 10 am , official cut off breakfast time. Beautifully decorated shower and common room. Would most certainly stay again and make sure to have breakfast in allocated time frame.
