Bastian homestay is in the hearth of Kochi wit a great location close to the Chinese net. However the hospitality of the owners is what makes it special.. they are able to provide you with any activity and support any request. I was pressed by time and they dropped me twice at the bus station by their family motobike, they... More

Everyone has already said all there is to say, I can only confirm it's the truth. This is a great place and the owners are very sweet and helpful. They serve good breakfast and provide help with booking activities and transportation.

This is a great little home stay with lovely hosts. Bastian and Ginnie are gracious, friendly and very helpful hosts and the reason I love homestays over guest houses any time. They go the extra little mile to help you, nothing is too much trouble for them. Ginnie organised a great massage at an excellent non tourist price which was... More

Lovely homestay, very clean and quiet as it's tucked away down a little network of alleyways. I stayed two nights and enjoyed every moment. Breakfast is available for a little extra, I didn't take this option though, and there are many interesting cultural activities on offer. Very helpful family too, they booked me a tuk tuk late at night so... More

I am a foodie, very critical of cuisine. I want my food not just to please the palate but to have character. I tried dinner on the first day. The next morning, I had breakfast. After that I was hooked. Gini is an excellent cook. She prepares Kerala dishes, but she does something to them that makes every meal memorable.... More

First of all, the owners are both the nicest people. We had a 17 hour train ride and arrived at 4am and they were both awake to welcome us and made us feel at home straight away. The room was probably the cleanest and tidiest one I've ever seen. It's cheap, breakfast is wonderful, everything really is perfect on every... More

Stayed there for 5 days, very clean rooms, soo lovely people, feeling like in a family, very delicious breakfast. They helped us organising several trips around Kochi. Definitely the best accommodation we had in the 3 weeks in southern India!

I liked staying here so much I stayed here twice on two separate visits. The owners really make you feel right at home, and they helped me out with so much without me even asking. Room was nice, location is fine, affordable, breakfast, they'll help set up any outings or tourist things you want to do like it's no problem.... More

This Homestay is excellent. We had a room with fan and everything was great. The owners are very gentle, kind and helpful. They booked many trips and attractions for us and it was very easy. The room was very clean and had an awesome bathroon. The breakfast was also very good. All in all we had a wonderful time.
