We stayed here for 4 nights in a mixed dorm for 6 - the guys that work here are super accommodating and helpful. The location is great for buses /airport shuttle and ferry as well as many of the sights in fort cochin. The rooms were clean and AC worked well but the bathroom not very clean. Bike hire and...

This was my first stop on a two month trip to India. They arranged an airport collection for me, it was a little expensive in hindsight, but saved me the any drama after 20 hours travelling. The hostel itself is a quite basic, and the showers are luke warm, but i didn't mind as Kochi is rather hot and sticky.... More

This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to all the attractions of Fort Cochin. The Staff are wonderful and very helpful, nothing was to much trouble for them. The room was clean and very good value for money.

Pretty okay in terms of amenities, comfortable bed with good aircon. Shower was not good, nor was the food from the menu in the common room. Satellite TV in the common room worked well, not much of an atmosphere in there though, it's a little dark and doesn't get much natural light. Wifi was temperamental in the room. Location was...

Located right in the middle of everything there is to do... More

While backpacking in India with two friends, we stayed here on two different occasions for a few nights each time. Everything was clean and tidy, and we were very happy to find that there was working air-conditioning in all the rooms as it was near 40 degrees some days with the humidity. The air-conditioning made it very comfortable to sleep... More

Booked a room without hesitation after staying at the Kovalam Vedanta, centrally located in fort Kochin, it is a pleasure to walk to and from all the main attractions around (also the boat jetty). The staff is very sweet and always helpful, makes you feel comfortable right away. Truly lives up to their 'finest backpacking hostels' tag line, had a... More
