Rustic but OK”
location, family setting, price
If you are looking for a rustic experience this is it. That said we enjoyed our stay with Suraj and his family. They are very helpful and are there to answer most of your questions. It is hard to find but once there you will quickly manage the maze of little streets to get there and back from your daily site seeing. Always carry your headlamp or flashlight. If you are coming back at night you will definitely need it in some of the corners. You will need to climb about 10 steep steps in tight quarters to get to the guesthouse. It's close to the bigger burning ghat but, amazingly, you never smell anything. Probably because of the type of wood they use I suspect. Also just a 5-7minutes walk along the Gange to the main Ghat where they have evening aarti (worship/prayer) every night at 7. We always had hot water for the shower, and a relatively clean (India standards) bathroom with a few cobwebs here and there. Oh and bring your toilet paper and soap as they did not supply that when we were there. The bed was comfortable, the sheets clean and our room was a good size. Queen bed (accessed from one side only), table, chair and bathroom. The rooms need a lock and key. If you don't have one they can supply one, but we did not bother because we always bring our important stuff (passports, money, camera, tablet, phone, etc) with us and left only clothes and toiletries. Never had a problem. Nothing moved or taken. The food was ok and price a little higher than local restaurants/shops.

Comfortable room, great location”
Comfortable bed, good location very near the most interesting ghats,
Upon arrival, host tried to relocate me to another guesthouse as "there were no rooms available". I stood my ground insisting on staying there (and intended to cancel my booking and find my own alternative accommodation if needed). They said they would check the oomputer and suddenly a room became available. I was glad as I was very nice and comforatable (maybe an upgrad?). Great location, but a Little bit hard to find (and find again).

Great Value and Friendly Accommodations”
Staff and family, Plenty of Space, Near River
Great- so welcoming and helpful. The entire family was so kind. They are not overbearing in any way, but offer help, conversation and smiles always. I arrived very late and I departed in the evening but still he was very nice to let me store my things and offered me an empty room to rest while I waited to leave the final night. How cool is it also to wake up and open your windows to find monkeys hanging around outside? Recommended as a convenient, kind, money-saving accommodation.

Clean family guest house, but hot water a bit slow”
Clean, near to ganga river but difficult to find for 1st time
I love the location, just a 5 min walk to the ganga river,main burning ghat, golden temple, blue lassi shop.10mins slow walk to Dasaswamedh ghat.So have to expect it was quite difficult to find the location for the 1st time,the owner and the family was friendly and always kind to draw us map to go around. Small room but cleanliness was ok. Only thing is blanket is not enough for our winter stay and hot water a bit slow to wait for. Wifi was working quite well. Food was also quite good but considered 3 star hotel price and have to pay tax, so its a bit pricey for us. they have rooftop overlooking the ganga river but no rooftop restaurant. overall we had quite pleasant stay at this guest house.

Spiders ”
The location is perfect for access to the river/ghats and the old town. The roof area is a welcome break from the crazy streets.
Unfortunately our stay was marred by the very unclean state of the guest house - the bin in the toilet was overflowing and was not emptied for the duration of our stay (5 days). This led to us finding a used sanitary towel on the floor outside our room on the last morning. This has replaced the dog poo of the previous morning. There was apparently also an international spider conference taking place on the ceiling above the shower (I counted 19 spiders) every day. One of the 2 beds in our room was a last minute addition of a rather small and uncomfortable camp bed which also made the room very cramped. We also found cheaper better rooms elsewhere towards the end of our stay. Apart from this it was fine and the location was very useful. However I'd recommend looking elsewhere if you can.
