Like all of the Vedanta properties the hotel is clean with decent size rooms and bathrooms. The staff are always welcoming and willing to help you with anything you could possibly need. I would definitely stay here again.

Hostels provide you the right mix of intimacy and aloofness for a discerning traveller. Vedanta Wakeup was just that right blend. An understanding staff, great proximity to all the tourist activities and the joy of meeting fellow travellers just made my stay at Vedanta Wakeup ever so delighful. Special thanks to the lady there who helped drying up my clothes.

Overall the hostel was Ok to good, staff spoke good English, not a bad location, good common room. The bad is that we were there for 4 days and didn't have the room cleaned once, generally I just don't think the place was as clean as it could be. Also the front doors were always wide open, so lots of... More

I went to this hostel in July 2013, and my stay was absolutely perfect. It has any kind of comfort (hot water, wifi, cleanliness, ..) you can dream of in India. Perfect location in the center of Fort Cochin, welcoming and friendly staff, this place helped me to recover from my tiring trip around southern India. Don't miss the trip... More

Stayed for two nights. The staff were most-helpful. Location is good. Most attractions of Fort Kochi are at walking distance. The rooms are spacious and clean and absolute bang for the buck. p.s. It is more a backpackers hostel rather than a hotel.

This place is excellent at the given price in Kochin, believe me. Right at the centre of Fort Kochin, walking distance from the main bus stand and 500 metres from the ferry station. The place is clean and the staff is really helpful. The aircondition is fine, the food is cooked freshed. I have no complains with the place, one... More
