Vedantha Fort Kochi is utterly disappointing and ridiculously dirty hostel. I am surprised by the good reviews which it got. Don’t get fooled, its worth one star. On check-in we were allotted Rooms 103 and 104 after asking 3 different Ids. Both the rooms have faulty a/c and dirty bathrooms with lost of rust and muddy water coming out from... More

We stayed there for two nights and it was pretty good. It is clean and feels safe. It is close to the main attractions. The shower has no pressure at all, but no issues in general. The staff was always nice to us.

If u are travelling solo, their dorms are the best you'll find for the cheapest possible price. While the common areas lack the hostel like charm, the location n the cleanliness are about good enough a reason to stay. If u arrive and find the dorm smelly or shabby, know that it is the fellow lodgers that are responsible for... More

Stayed 9 December for 3 nights. Clean but very basic hotel, a bit pricey for the basic backpacker atmosphere and not much effort put into the communal areas so didn't have a hang around the hostel vibe. But amazing location to see Chinese Fishing Nets, Dutch Palace and Jew Town. Hotel manager was young, vibrant and very helpful - top... More

The hostel had a good location in Fort Kochi near the bus terminus and also close to the ferry crossing. The mixed dorm I stayed in was fairly clean and basic but a bit worn, and the bathroom omitted a foul odor (I think from the pipes) throughout. The food options in the restaurant were good.

The hostel is well located, only a few minutes walk away from Fort Kochi's bus station and close to the Chinese Fishing Nets. All of the major attractions in Fort Kochi are within about half an hour's walking distance. The place is clean by Indian standards and staff are generally helpful. The price is also reasonably considering the rooms are... More

I stayed in an a/c 6 bed dorm which I found very comfortable. Each bed had its own electric plug socket. The bedding and towel was good quality, which isn't also the case in budget dorms. It was a great reat location and the staff couldn't have been nicer...professional and very friendly. Anoop had a smile on his face on... More
