Awful experiencie at this guest house. rooms are dirty, old and not well ventilated. Tab water was brown with soil, my bed was disgusting (hair, dry blood drops, and other kind of stains. Staff is dull and lazy. Also the energy of that area is quite negative

Booked in for four nights but only stayed two. First night had a meal in the rooftop restaurant which resulted in two of us being very sick vomiting with bad diarrhea. The bathrooms hadn't been cleaned for so long. The sheets and pillows were filthy. Overall a bad experience. We checked out as soon as we were able.

We stayed a couple of nights in August 2016, and enjoyed the views at the roofgarden. The rooms were nice, The matrasses were very good, a/c was working. Sometimes no hot water. the Manager, Praksh, was very helpful.

We stayed at this hotel for a week while spending a week doing a yoga course. As we confirmed we would stay for a while we got a decent rate for the room. Had to go on the top floor because if you open the windows lower down you just had people peering in and children shouting for rupees and... More

I was there only in restaurant. The view from the roof is great - you can see almost all old part of the city. It's very beautiful an peacefully in the evening. The meal was good. Service was good. And it's not expensive. Momos is quite good but the beer is expensive but it's typical for Varanasi.

The room was quite clean, except for the termits in the bathroom door... The hall of the hotel is not very welcoming. The restaurant staff is very friendly. The food is not exceptionnal... The terrace view is nice. The location is perfect if you want to dive in the atmosphere of the old city.

Puja guest house is well situated. The rooms are not clean (we found a dead rat in the bathroom , I know we are in India. ...) and the owner is unpleasant though his employees are doing their best . O.G.

Guest house is noisy, rooms are almost clean (no more), free wifi but not working (the famous "not working today" 3 days in a row... Though, rooms are cheap. I guess if your goal is to save money, it's not so bad (well located, restaurant with excellent view and ok food).

We arrived late at night at Varanasi due to a train delay and unfortunately we ended up at this place. Grossly overpriced when it was clear it was our only option at the time.

The rooftop view overlooking the lake and the city is one of the better in Varanasi. The restaurant is alright with good live music in the evening. However, the rooms are extremely basic and unclean, reception staff come across as rude and very unhelpful. Cheap enough, but still overpriced for what you get
