The owner is very kind, helping you in all ways to satisfy you. His is more interesting by your wellbeing rather than money. This is very rare!!! i traveled as a single woman, and his guest house is very safe, close to Assi Ghat, in very quiet neighborhood.

Recently I have been to Varanasi with my family and I chose to stay at "Ishan Paying Guest House" after seeing their online customer reviews.

This is a good homestay or guesthouse with a friendly family how runs the place. It's located near assi ghat in a quiet area. Room was good, beds comfortable, AC and fan, hot showers. Room was clean, bathroom could be cleaner. The family made me some awesome food for a fair price. Also great chai! Would stay there again!

We stayed in Ishan for 5 nights its a little bit out of the old city, the room was simple but clean and affordable and we really enjoyed our stay there, nice family and the host was pretty attentive to whatever needs we had and made us a great chai in the mornings.
