Gini and her family are very friendly hosts, the rooms were clean and comfortable, far nicer than expected for the price range. We visited in the hottest time of the year and found the room with just a fan was a little warm after 2 nights so upgraded to the AC one for our last night and it was perfect.... More

I had a couple of days at the end of a group tour; and knew I wanted to experience life with locals in a homestay. I spent time researching properties and zeroed in on this one. Gini always quickly replied to my inquiries; I knew this was the place to stay. Upon arrival my room was ready - I'd reserved... More

Definitely recommend staying at Bastian Homestay while you’re in Fort Kochi. The location is great—it’s a short walk from all the tourist sites, but the neighborhood, a quiet, quaint warren of residential alleyways, is not touristy at all.

Stay 14/3/15 - 26/3/15 We searched for weeks and did our homework on the hundreds of Homestays in Kerala. With the help of people's opinions on trip advisor we finally decided Bastian HomeStay was the one and we were not disappointed at all from the very first email. We decided to have a base in Fort Cochin as there is... More

This is a family owned guest house which is just a 5-10 min pleasant walk from Princess Street. The guest house is clean and well-maintained. Rooms are average sized but very clean. Beds comfortable, effective air conditioning. Tasty meal. Good Wifi speeds. But what I liked the best really was the couple's hospitality - I had so much tea (which... More
