We stayed for two nights.Rooms, Bathrooms were clean. Service was good. We opted for breakfast only - both continental (bread-butter, jam, egg) and South Indian (Idli, Dosa, Vada) breakfast along with fruits - available and it was very good. Owners were very nice people. Also can find restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner.

+ very charming and helpful family + easy to find (many signs...) + good wifi + rich breakfast + great value for money - one night it was a bit noisy as some life music was going on in the neighbourhood. Backwater tours can be booked directly at the homestay. I found the pricing quite reasonable.

We stayed for three nights earlier this week and had a great stay. Location is good, quiet - but only about a 10 min walk to the Chinese fishing nets. Rooms were very clean as were common areas. Family is very helpful. Breakfast available for only 100rp and was very good. We especially loved the tank with the large fish... More

Bastian Homestay is owned by a lovely family who is always ready to help and give you the advice on what to do in Cochin and around. The place is simple, clean, cheap and comfortable. The location is between the Chinese nests (walking distance) and Jewish part (few minutes by tuk-tuk).

We spend three nights at Bastian homestay, the room was really clean and nice. Ginni and her husband were really helpful, giving us really good suggestions on what to do in Cochin. The breakfast is extra, however it is really good and cheap! We definitely recommend this place!!!

We've been travelling in India for 3 months and Bastian Homestay is our favourite accommodation. The friendly and charming owner believes in 3 things: having clean rooms in a good state of repair; providing good, free wifi; and in not ripping off tourists. He excels in all three. The breakfast is fantastic, really tasty, filling and great value for money.

One of the most wonderful stays in Asia I don't have a bad word to say about the place. Everything worked perfectly. The room was clean. The place is in walking distance from everything you need in Fort Kochi including the Kathakali show and excellent dining options. The staff were particularly amazing on welcoming us by introducing us to the... More

The room was perfect for us(2 girls). Gini was an amazing host along with her husband. They helped book for us to go catch a kathakali show and our tour to the elephant camp and waterfalls followed by our houseboat stay. They made us feel very comfortable. The breakfast was great. Wifi was fast. Did not have to worry about... More
