The guesthouse location is very central, a couple of minutes walk from the ghats. It is beautifully decorated and clean. The owner was extremely helpful and provided lots of useful tips to help make our stay in Varanasi the best ever.

Unfortunately, due to a guest who's gotten ill the two brothers running the guesthouse were in a bit of a pickle, and so were we. The booked room was still occupied by this guest. This resulted in a temporary room involving a shared bathroom. Much to our delight the brothers were able to compensate for the inconvenience the next day....

That's $2 Australian with none of the amenities I was paying extra available I just...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Shiva's guesthouse for 4 nights in November 2016. The guesthouse itself is really nice and clean with most rooms with attached bathroom, and a roof terrace restaurant with views on the Ganges. It is also extremely well located, literally a few steps from the Ghats (the steps that lead to the Ganges) and just...
