This is a great place to stay particularly if you are on a budget. Mr Santosh and his family are helpful and very friendly. The room was huge with a bathroom, seating area, 2 large beds, mosquito nets, fans, hot water and TV. What's more it was Vasco Da Gama's actual house when he arrived from Portugal so it is... More

The room was interesting but a bit... More

A great location (right next to St. Francis Church). Nice big airy room. Basic but functional with old world furniture and paintings. A great way to relax in Kochi The owners are helpful. The breakfast could include more items though!

An old building, large rooms, comfortable beds, clean and well maintained, the St.Francis Church visible from the windows, a very friendly Mr.George and most things a short walk away made this a great place to stay at Fort Kochi.

I have stayed in Kochi for 3 nights and have totally loved the place. Sort of a tamed Indian city...Vasco Homestay was perfect for me, i had a vast room in a very good and quiet location.

We stayed at the Vasco homestay for 2 nights. I can certainly recommend this accommodation. The room was spacious and clean, 2 beds covered with mosquito netting. Vasco homestay is located in the heart of Cochin within walking distance of everything. The price, 1500R per room, breakfast included. The owners were very nice and helpful. This was the best accommodation... More
