Kesher Guesthouse was a clean, comfortable place to stay. The owner welcomed us with a delicious chai, and we had a wonderful breakfast each morning in his company. When our wait list train tickets did not materialize into confirmed train tickets, he was immediately exploring all other transport options for us. We liked the location near Assi Ghat, where there are plenty of good restaurants and cafés. Would definitely return given the first rate hospitality we received during our stay.

We spent a lot of time researching our base in Varanasi and eventually went with Kesher. It's based near Assi Ghat which is the best ghat to start any walking or boat trip. The owners were thorough and quick with their response to all our emails which stood them out from all competitors. The owners were also extremely friendly when we met them, always willing too help without being intrusive or trying to get us to "buy into" something which we have experienced elsewhere. We really would recommend this hostel because for what you pay, you stay in a safe and secure guesthouse in a well located area in Varanasi. Room Tip: The top floor room is best because of the views from the balcony. See more room tips Stayed November 2014, travelled as a couple

Peaceful, Trustful, Graceful, Worthful, What else you need? These are few questions that look for whenever I visit any city. Keshar Guest House "Sets 'ful'" all the values on these parameters. Its located in old Varanasi city to pick-up real feeling of city. Strongly recommend to visit there once if you bother about these values. Personally a nice family runs this guest house so you will more feel like home rather being in just a guest house. Thanks to Keshar Guest House for all services, would come again if I visit Varanasi.

This is a very friendly, family-run guest house located in Assi ghat in Varanasi and I highly recommend this place! I was staying at another guesthouse before here but I did not have a very good experience but I'm glad I decided to move here because this place was just amazingly comfortable. You feel at home and you are part of the family and most of all, they are so helpful. Both the owner and the father of the owner helped me when I was in a physically bad condition. I was feeling very weak, so they bought me good and water and even cooked for me! (It tasted so good too!) They took care of me very well and I cannot thank them enough for all that they have done for me. I really felt emotionally touched especially being treated like a family member when I was in need of help. Thank you so much Ashwani and I will never forget your hospitality and your considerate heart. I will definitely drop by next time I go to India! Stayed April 2014, travelled solo
