Really nice place and the hosts are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. It is a very nice short walk to Assi ghat. They were extremely helpful when my girlfriend got sick and we needed a doctor. I would highly recommend.

Nice man who runs this place gave me good advice about things to do and see in Varanasi. He advised me about the price I should pay for tuktuk transport and warned about the scams on the ghats. Give him a hug when you see him.

We had a great time in the guesthouse. Room and private toilet were clean and comfortable. Hot water was available and wifi was good. There is a rooftop and a place to relax and meet others. Our host Gopi and his family were very friendly and helpful. Location is close to Assi ghat.

I stayed in this very new and clean accommodation for two nights and can nothing but recommend this place! The stuff is friendly and helpful, the rooms have good standards and are cheap, the common area invites to relax and the view to the Ganga from the rooftop is great! If you don't mind to walk around half an hour...

Very kind and accommodating staff. Affordable and beautiful view of the ghat. Off of the main road so much more quiet. The staff took very good care of us and even arranged our transportation to the airport for us at a good price.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
More than just a place to sleep...a place to rest your soul! No hotel, however grand, gives you the feel of home like this lovely heart of holy city bed and breakfast does. Centrally located in Varanasi city, our guest house is nearby ganga quiet, peaceful and secure environment. Basic amenities. Staying with the family will give you a unique local experience with the charm, warmth & intimacy of a private family guest house. One of our guests said that "the family is everything at Holy City Guest House has a touch of 'home' to it; offering elegant, affordable accommodation & warm hospitality with a quiet, relaxing and un-intruding atmosphere. Our constant endeavor is to make your stay in Varanasi, whether for tourism or business, as comfortable and memorable as possible. We wouldn't want it any other way; I think people who are looking for a more local experience, which is cheap and where you can enjoy home cooked meals may enjoy this stay. ... more   less
