Shiva International Lodge, Varanasi

By Claire vd Heever Jun 22, 2011

Shiva International, Varanasi “Our priority is the good Guest, Money is a secondary matter”

This guesthouse-cum-homestay was recommended to us for its Ganges views and reasonable rates. These it had, but when I dropped my second bar of soap down the squat loo – while struggling to find standing room above it – I started to wonder whether it was worth the Rs100 saving.

Cost: 400 rupees for a double room with fan.

Finding it: Kedar Ghat (See map below.)
