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.

    Very nice Hostel with view over Ganga River in Varanasi. Quiet, clean, safe, good atmosphere, relaxing Environment and very helpful and friendly stuff! From the rooftop you have a nice view over the river and some temples. They have a washing machine for free use. And with Atul they have an excellent local tourguide who is very caring and can tell you a lot about Varanasi and also about Hinduism if you like to.

    Zimmer sauber, schlicht gehalten, vollkommen OK (Dorm). Nutzbare Küche (zwar mit zeitlichen Einschränkungen), aber auch 2x Mahlzeiten dort zubereiten war kein Problem. Waschmaschine und Waschmittel zum einmaligen kostenlosen Gebrauch vorhanden. Nette Gemeinschaftsplätze, ruhig. Kostenloses Frühstück vœllig ausreichend (2 toast, marmelade, 1 banane, 1 tee, 1x Cornflakes/Pancake/Omelette). Für den niedrigen Preis sehr gute Leistung. Personal bei unserem Aufenthalt nicht so gut gestimmt.

    War mit meinem Freund für 3 Tage dort. Ein gutes Hostel in Varanasi. Ziemlich sauber, morgens gab es für jede/n Frühstück zubereitet (Toast, Omelett, Marmelade, Butter, Banane, Chai). War jetzt geschmacklich nicht das Größte aber für den Start in den Tag echt super und eben im Preis enthalten :) In wenigen Gehminuten ist man am Ghat und kann von da weiter am Ganges entlang spazieren. Sowohl Dorms als auch Privatzimmer waren unserer Meinung nach ihr Geld wert.

    Ein sehr schönes Hostel.Toll eingerichtet mit Innenhof und Dachterrasse.Zimmer schön und sauber. Basic Frühstück mit einbegriffen. Die Mitarbeiter waren allerdings nicht sehr freundlich oder zuvorkommend und man hatte das Gefühl, sie mit Fragen eher zu nerven. Haben über das Hostel eine Bootstour gebucht, die 'relativ' teuer war, wobei uns dann letztendlich zwei Jungs (ca. 12 Jahre) gerudert haben. Wir hoffen, dass die beiden etwas von dem Geld zu sehen bekommen. Fühlten uns dabei etwas unwohl.

    Mülleimer und Kleiderhaken fehlten leider in den Zimmern, das war sehr unpraktisch... Frühstück war mit drin und ganz gut, allerdings gab es nur wenig Besteck. Altstadt in ca 25 min Fußweg an den ghats entlang erreichbar... Atmosphäre war echt nett! Im Internet stand Kartenzahlung verfügbar, dem war jedoch nicht so!

    Super location near Gangnes and they have a nice common area and free drinking water. However just stay there, if you don't need any help from the stuff, they charge you a lot for booking tickets. Don't do the boat tour with them, it's far too expensive... Just getting some information/help without paying is not possible here!! WIFI sometimes is not working for hours...

    The staff wasn't helpfull at all..they are whether able to book a bus/train nor to extend your stay. (And all this happens in a rude manner.) The bathrooms got cleaned once Düring my stay of give days. Bad wifi and no bins in the rooms. After all it has a nice common area and is well located.
