    The hostel has nice common areas, on the main floor and the rooftop, and the free breakfast in the morning was great. It was close to the ghats and some nice cafes/restaurants. The room nice and clean as well. Great value for money

    Good palce to stay in Varanasi”

    You’ve to wash your own dishes even for the included breakfast.As breakfast is included service it shouldn’t be done (in my opinion). Location is nearby Assi ghat. But again its very much inward and deep inside streets.It took around 15-20 minutes for me to figure out when I’m from Uttar Pradesh,India itself. But overall it’s a great budget option.

    Inside the hostel to their level best, maintenance is good. The pathway to the hostel from main Shivala road is not good. Staffs are very courteous and helpful. It's not on the Ganga ,You have to walk through Dirty gallies to reach Ganga.

    The best in Varanasi of the boutique hostel class.”

    This place is great value! Excellent central location. After travelling for a few weeks through north India in a variety of 3, 4, 5 stars (most of them pretty disappointing) I settled on a budget option for a 9 day training in Varanasi. The service was personal and accommodating. Athul, Binu and crew took care of all my needs & worked around my tricky schedule. And hey... Hostel LaVie also attracts a cool clientele. People often remarked on the refreshing level of trust & honesty between both staff & guests. I had no problem leaving my door unlocked whilst I was in the common area. Ask for some great priced Thali or spicy fried rice - damn good. Ultimately, this is an oasis in city that (despite its charms), can be tough going. Importantly, although it's a budget hotel, you really need to tip these guys - whether individually, or an avg daily amount paid at the end of your stay. They work hard and is a daily grind

    Excellent”

    Pros: Good hostel for solo travellers - lots of communal areas to hang out. Good location: it is quiet so can get a good night's sleep and is just a few minutes from either the man road of the ghats. Breakfast was good and consisted of two slices of toast, butter/jam, Omlette or corn flakes depending on day, and chai. Beds are very comfortable. Cons: Room doors dont have proper handles and can only be closed by a bolt inside or outside. So if some dorm room members are out and some are in, door is always open so mosquitos get inside. Wi-Fi is pretty poor (standard in India). Fan rooms remain very warm even with fan on. No soap in rooms.

    Cool Stay”

    I stayed for two nights in Hotel Varanasi and I can say that it is one of the best hostel that I have stayed throughout my India trip. Location wise is very closed to the Ghat. Bed and bathroom are clean enough. I like the communal room a lot because of the mini resort ambiance. The best part is you can do your laundry for free here.

    Great value for money but can improve on breakfast and food”

    Location is good, rooms and toilet bathrooms are clean. Staff is excellent, they will help you with everything and anything you would need. I stayed in private room which was spacious enough for the price I had paid. Food is cheap but not that great. I would recommend they improve their breakfast quality. At least have a proper desi Indian chai :)

    Lovely decor”

    We had a pleasant stay here, having boat trips available was handy, slightly overpriced but worth it knowing that we didn’t have to go and find one and would be taken from our hotel to the boat and back. We did both the sunset and sunrise tour and both only had a handful of other guests on so it was not too crowded like some other boats we saw. There was free breakfast, it was simple but did the job and also free laundry facilities which was a massive bonus considering most other hotels charge for this facility. The decor was beautifully done and it was nice to be somewhere that had made an effort with this as a lot of places we have stayed in India have not.

    This hostel was so beautiful and relaxing within a city that has so much excitement. We can confidently say that we felt comfortable knowing we could go back to our hotel and relax. The hostel was very clean with members of staff constantly cleaning. They have a great rooftop with a view of the Ganges. They plan to expand their number of rooms as they were excited to show us how. My husband and I were so excited to see that they had free laundry! Laundry was so appreciated after spending a day out!
