The place was spotless, the hosts Gini and George were fantastic, the breakfasts were delicious and the price was great. It was very easy to walk everywhere in the fort. The hosts were very helpful organising things to do - I'd recommend seeing a kathakali or sitar performance. 3 weeks travelling in India and this was one of the best... More

I have been travelling in India and Nepal for 7 weeks before I made the trip from Goa to Kerala. Again, no plans so I chose Kochi at random. I chose Bastian Homestay on Booking.com due to a combination of price and the the number of good reviews. This is not always an accurate way pick your accomodation but its... More

Stayed there for two nights. Bastian and his wife are wonderful ppl. Rooms are quite new and very clean. Bastian is also very helpful in arranging the tour so you didn't need to wander around looking for tour packages which happened to me in munnar.

We stayed for one week, even we just intended to stay for two nights. The owner and his wife where all the time available and helpful. We stayed over the Easter holidays and they were also well informed about things going on at this occasion. The rooms are spotless. One of the best places we stayed in India.

The couple who owned the homestay are lovely and friendly - they were really welcoming and went out their way to make our stay comfortable and organised trips etc. Delicious breakfasts too! Really clean rooms.

We loved staying at Gini and Bastian's home stay and being entertained by their daughter Gigi! We travelled as a group of 9 - mothers and daughters and were glad that Bastian was our first port of call. Gini and Bastian helped us organise our time in Kochi and with anything we asked for they helped with. Some of our... More

Perfect for backpacking couples. Gini & Bastian are very warm guests. They are very professional and will not only make your stay comfortable but also help you coordinate with other agencies - booking tickets to the cultural events, back water cruise, yoga center, ayurvedic massages, rental bikes etc The place/food is reasonable priced and a great place to stay when...

We liked everything here. Some notables are: 1) The Bastian family. They really make you feel at home. They are always eager to help, and made our stay memorable. 2) The breakfast was always great. 3) Help with backwater tours, dance performances, and motorbike rental was seamless. 4) Simple yet very clean rooms with fast wifi 5) Easy walk to...
