Benson's staff greeted us and showed us our room. Throughout our stay Benson helped us book Taxi's as well as a night on a houseboat. His location is great, a... More

in November 2014 I stayed in Costa Gama Home Stay and it is a great place to be. My room was clean, spacy and quiet. The home stay is only 10 min. walking distance from Kochi's main tourist attractions and also very close to palace road, where one can experience day in and out life in India. Benson, the owner,...

Rooms are large and bathroom is basic but clean clean with hot water. It is a budget hotel however so don't expect 5*. Water... More

Bensons seems to know everybody here, and he was very generous in sharing all the information about Kochi. Place... More

We arrived late into Cochin and Benson had arranged to have us picked up from the airport at a cost of 1200 rupees. I'm not sure if that is a good rate or not but given the distance from the airport to the guesthouse ( over 1 hr) We thought the price was great and we loved having it all... More

The room was basic but comfortable and Fort Cochin is nice, but what really made our trip was the service. The owner is really nice and they were very helpful in arranging taxis and giving other local info. There is wifi in the rooms (although they switch it off quite early - to save electricity i guess? ) He also... More

Stayed at Benson's homestay twice over a few weeks while passing through For Cochin. I'd definitely recommend this as a base for exploring what is quite a nice town. The location is just a bit away from the main hustle and is quite a nice place to come home to at the end of the day. Rooms were spotless and... More
