Descripción de la propiedad

HosteLaVie is India’s first premium boutique hostel at backpackers' prices!
We know Hostel is more than cheap dorms, free wifi and hot water.

HosteLaVie is a cozy hostel in Varanasi (started January-2017) with around 80% open hang out space. We believe hostel should have running space, literally. We are the only boutique hostel in Varanasi which is right at the banks of Ganga. Every morning you can witness sunrise just from our roof top cafe. Why spend money for public transport or taxi?! You can go from hostel to Aasi/Ghat directly from your bed - no taxi needed! 

There is also a buffet style continental breakfast available everyday for less than a dollar. We serve bread, eggs, cornflakes, porridge and coffee. You could use the kitchen for mastering your cooking skills too. We have games at every floor and we know you need variety. We have 2 common area’s, 2 dinning area and 2 hangout spots. The entire hostel has no direct light to your eyes, we made in a way that the only light falls is where you walk.

Meeting people is very easy at this hostel while chilling on lounge pillows in the smoking area, drinking and playing Jenga inside our in house coffee bar, watching football match on big television and cooking meals in the kitchen. If you’re in the 'don't want to mingle tonight and just read a book mood, there is a cozy corner in every floor.

We have daily events like Photo tour, food walk, heritage walk etc.

High-Speed Internet, Wi-Fi

Breakfast, towels, linen

    The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms too. You can make tours with boat and many things. Laundry it's free. It's a very good hostel, you can see the ganges from the rooftop, it's very quiet at night, i highly recomend. Sergio from spain

    Muy buena ubicación, a pasos del Ganges. El desayuno no es una maravilla, pero por el precio está muy bien. Se puede lavar la ropa de forma gratuita.

    Bien ubicado, limpio, buen lugar para conocer viajeros, tiene cocina,free laundry. Desayuno incluido muy básico. Lo único malo fue un chico del staf que era medio mala onda y no fue muy tolerante con nosotras cuando tuvimos que quedarnos un rato más por demoras del tren. Pese a eso... Volvería. Hermosa terraza!

    El hostal como tal es bueno. El grupo de amigos con los que estaba y yo, sentimos que las comisiones cobradas por el hostal para agendar cosas como tour, viajes en tren, Tuk Tuk, etc eran altas. De resto, es un lugar bueno para estar en Varanasi.

    Nuestra experiencia en el Hostal La Vie fue OK. El personal un poco antipático. Lo bueno que tenía el desayuno y la colada gratis. El desayuno estaba bien. El hostal es muy bonito y bastante grande.

    BE AWARE: staff at the hostel will try to scam you. There is a way calling himself 'official hostel tourist guide' he will ask for 700rp to bring you around the city and not see anything! The trip on the boat is worthy though. The receptionist looks like he doesn't know much English. He gets stress out whenever he has to do more than one thing. He also scams clients arranging overpriced taxis, do not trust him. The hostel is Okey, staff is terrible.

    El peor hostel donde me hospede. El staff no sabía poco inglés y además nos querían poner en una habitación sin baño y sin aire, cuando habíamos pagado por tenerlo. A un pasajero del hostel alguien le robó su riñonera con el pasaporte y Plata, y el staff no ayudó a buscarlo ni querían mostrar las cámaras. Muy mala ubicación y poco seguro.
