Hollow Knight Silksong

Areas Map & Quill Fast Travel
Benches Points of Interest

Benches are checkpoints throughout Hallownest that the Knight can sit on to perform several actions:

  • Respawn at the Bench after quitting the game or dying
  • Replenish all health (including Lifeblood masks granted by Charms, but depleting all Lifeblood masks from Cocoons)
  • Equip and unequip Charms
  • Fill out the Map with places already explored (requires purchasing a Quill)
  • If Salubra's Blessing has been purchased, the Knight will slowly replenish SOUL
  • Respawn enemies (not in the bench room) that were defeated prior to sitting
  • Respawn Lifeblood Cocoons

In some cases, Benches must be unlocked by paying a toll machine with Geo.

The player may purchase a Bench Pin from Iselda for Geo.png100, which reveals the locations of every Bench in the Area after that area's Map has been purchased.

Toll Bench Locations and Prices

All bench locations in Hallownest


There are a variety of styles of Benches all throughout the game, with many unique to a specific area.



  • A cut bench called "ancient_bench" comprised of the bodies of dead Vessels existed in game files at one point, but it was later removed.
  • Another cut bench named "Hornet_room_bench" also existed in the game files upon release. It was part of an unused room that was inaccessible and cannot be found in the game anymore.
