I did a lot of research before booking and am pleased to say this little 12 room guesthouse exceeded my expectations. Lovely family, clean comfy rooms, good comfy bed and ac. Best bits ?. The excellent hot shower, quiet traffic free location and Ginni's great value breakfasts. This place deserves its certificates of excellence

A group of four American tourists, we stayed in Bastian Home Stay for just a night while on a short visit to Kochi. Wish we could have stayed longer, if only to enjoy Gini's amazing Kerala breakfast of appams and stew. Gino is a wonderfully warm and welcoming hostess and we really enjoyed our time at her home. She was... More

Stayed at Bastian for a handful of days at the end of the year while prepping for the Rickshaw Run. Couldn't have asked for a better spot to go back to at the end of the day. Good A/C, location close to the attractions of Fort Kochi, good breakfast, clean buildings and rooms, etc. Most of all, Bastian and Gini... More

My buddy and I were going on the Rickshaw Run and decided to take a chance on the Bastian Homestay. We couldn't have made a better choice! George and Gini made sure we were picked up at the airport (at 3:30am!!) and greeted us at their door. Gini makes a great breakfast and their two buildings are located on a... More

Very warm welcome, and hosting from Bastian and Gini. Our Room was the cleanest, most comfortable from our trip, which also had a really good hot shower. Delicious Keralan Breakfasts. Our Travel needs around Kerala were well taken care of too. Overall a very well run, well positioned, great place to stay. Thanks!

Wow this place was spotless. In fact, we are spending a few more days here. It is the only bathroom so far that we have not seen dirty stains in the corners. It is hard to find so if coming from the airport ask them to arrange a pick up for 1000 rupees. The airport is about 45-1hour away. And... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bastian Homestay. Gini and Bastian were attentive hosts who helped us a lot with organizing transport and also recommended great activities and restaurants. The location is ideal and walking distance from many of the main sights as well as some great restaurants.

We both really enjoyed our stay with Bastian and his family. They were welcoming and helpful, our room was comfortable for the price and the location was excellent. Our only issue was that it can be a little tricky to find! I suggest you note down their telephone number and ask you taxi driver to phone for directions.

We stayed for four nights over new year and had a very comfortable stay. We were close enough to the festivities but it was nice and quiet where the house is located. The hosts were very helpful and we got our laundry done for a reasonable price. Rooms were clean and bright. Good wifi and facilities. Would definitely recommend and... More

As a group of two couples we had 3 nights in the area but an stain homestay only had one night available. As soon as we got there we knew we had picked a great place and wished we could spend the whole time there. We arrived pretty late and all very hungry. Most restaurant in area already closed and...
