I stayed here with my sister last week and also 3 years a go when I first visited Kerala. The service is impeccable and staff are super friendly and chilled out. There's always music playing and drinks served and its an excellent location to base yourself in prior to exploring the rest of Kerala. The rooms are spacious and clean... More

I stayed at Oy's guest house for three nights at the end of January. My first room had bed bugs (!!!) so I had to move to a different one. They have no minimal cleaning standards especially when it concerns the shower and toilets which were quite disgusting. When I changed room I was 'welcomed' by cigarettes butts behind the... More

Basic rooms, reasonably clean, friendly owner, fairly cheap. Is right on main road so noisy in front rooms so recommend asking for room at rear of property. Also check if room price includes tax/breakfast. 5 min walk from main strip at fort Cochin.

Had breakfast here everyday in Kochi! Great muesli, very fresh. Helpfull staff, nice athmosphere. The location of the place is good and the rooms are clean and fresh. Beds are okay but so are most India beds :)

This place is too cool for school. Perhaps it wakes up after dark - or in the mornings - I don't know; when we visited it was half empty but the service was surly and inattentive; the waiter forgot an order (he was probably too busy watching the soccer); the duty manager spent his time in the street smoking and...

Oy's was amazing, I spent way too much time here hanging out too. The staff as well as the owners are all very friendly and have great service. The atmosphere of the cafe is excellent with the great photography on the walls and decorations. The food is great too! Definite must visit if in Ft. Kochi.

after having a booking problem when arriving in Cochin we stumbled upon Oy's for breakfast. It turned out they are also a homestay and within a few hours we were very happily put into their family room upstairs. The room was great- spacious and ambient with plenty of natural light. The boys who run the place were fantastic, so friendly... More

Lovely chilled cafe', equally great for a quick cup of tea or coffee, a drink or a meal. Friendly helpful staff and a super atmosphere. The cafe' doubled up as a travel agent for me as the owner can also organise trips in the backwaters, arrange cars and also owns a couple of homestays. His prices are comparable to others... More

The rooms are located just above the Oy's Cafe...got an AC room for a good rate - but the power kept going out and was struggling in the heat and humidity of Kochi. Apart from this it was a good find - close to the sights in Fort Kochi and the eating places.
