Complete scam!
, Sep 2021
I was disappointed by this experience because it was absolutely not what was advertised. I paid for a visit to Mukti Bhavan, the famous death hostel. However, I was taken to Mumukshu Bhavan, which is an old age home and where there is maybe one death every ten years, as the Manager himself admitted. Also the round trip from the hotel took 1 h 45 min, instead of the 4 hour tour that was advertised. When I complained to the local tour company, the owner, Vivek, lied to me saying that Mukti Bhavan and Mumukshu Bhavan were two names for the same place, which is a total lie. When I showed him the street address for Mukti Bhavan, which clearly shows that it is a different place, he dtopped communicating with me. This tour is a scam. Save your money and ask your hotel reception to contact Mukti Bhavan on your behalf if you are interested.

Dear Ms. Amrita, Greetings from Tour Varanasi !!! Thank you for writing a valuable review. Please note that death hostels remains shut when there is no patient in there. On the day of your visit it was shut and thus our guide took you to the next place where people check-in to die which is called Mumukshu Bhavan. However, considering your feedback we shall only operate this booking when mukti Bhaav is operational and have people living in on the day of visit. Apologies and hope to see you serve you someday soon. Have a wonderful time ahead. Regards, Vimal Kumar
Spiritual and thought provoking

I was interested to see the only place I'm aware of in the world where people can go with the specific intention of having their spiritual needs prioritised at the moment of their physical death. Although the hostel was empty at the actual time of my visit, I understand over 40,000 people have done this at Mukti Bhawan since its inception in the early 1900's. The manager, Mr Dubey, was charming and informative and the experience of simply having visited this unique place was satisfying and thought provoking. My guide, Chandan Yadav, spoke excellent English and was a treasure trove of local cultural and historical points of interest. In fact, he was so good I hired him all over again for more exploration of Varanasi the next day!! Thank you ... all in all, a wonderful visit.
