If you are looking for a clean, neat and good budget accommodation in Fort Kochi, this is it! We had a really nice stay at Saj home. Mr Saj himself is a very nice and helpful guy, and at arrival he sat down with us and took out time to give us some really good recommendations of what we should... More

I booked to stay here at 1am, and yet they still answered the phone. I've never used trip-advisor before so only booked for one night originally, however quickly decided to stay there for my whole trip. Even though I originally asked for air-conditioning, when I requested it to be removed (it's a lot colder than Delhi), he didn't charge me... More

Sajhome is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for budget accommodation. It is family run and they welcome you in to their family with open arms. The rooms are simple but they are large and clean, the breakfast is great and the location is perfect as it is in walking distance of all of the sites in... More

I am glad I made the decision to stay at Saj's homestay in Fort Kochin as we felt at home throughout our stay for 2 nights here. After exchanging many emails, I finally confirmed my stay with them and I must thank Saj for arranging such a good tour guide for us cause we spent so much of our time... More

Saj's homestay in Fort Kochi is wonderful, the rooms are very comfortable and his family is really warm. His older daughter looked after us superbly when Saj and his wife were away for the day. But staying with Saj means more than just another hotel room. He also helped design the perfect trip for us around Kerala. He arranged for... More

Saj and his family are AMAZING. I travelled to Kochi with a friend in July, and despite it being monsoon season, Saj recommended some amazing things for us to do and even helped us book train tickets to Trivandrum. Everything you'd want to see in Fort Kochi is either a walk or short auto rickshaw ride away. I got horrible... More

Saj Homestay is more a boutique hotel than a home stay. The owner Saj does live on the property with his family and he has six guestrooms. We stayed in Room 6, an air-conditioned upper rear room with a private balcony and ensuite. An opportunity for improvement for Saj and this is not meant as a criticism is that the... More

We stayed with Saj and his lovely family in March of this year. Basic very clean rooms freshly cooked breakfast every day. Everything within walking distance. With Saj's help two day tour organised to Munnar and tea plantation with car and driver (Naveen) and dropping us to Alleppey thereafter. One of the highlights of our fantastic stay in Kochi. We...

My friend and I were out backpacking in India for a month in summer 2014 and of the dozen or so places we stayed at across the country, Sajhome was far and away the best accommodation, and massively exceeded our expectations. From the lovely gentleman who picked us up at the airport, to the perfect rooms, food and excellent location,... More

By far the best place we stayed in India (on a one month backpacking trip). Saj (the host) was fantastic - he helped us arrange travel within Kochi and the various excursions we undertook and always had a smile on his face. His family were always at hand if we needed any help (including a complementary singing session!). Breakfast was... More
