First of all, yes it's quite cheap. I paid only 600 rupees per night, which is really not much. But then again, the place itself is really nothing special. The room was small, but cleanish; the walls were grubby and the bathroom not what you would call spotless. It could've used a proper cleaning, which it probably hasn't had in... More

What a fantastic family. We had a wonderful opportunity to see fireworks on the roof and a musical fiesta afterwards with devilishly good sweet indian treats. The location is perfect - no too close to the tourist spots to get trapped by bad food and high prices, but conveniently near enough everything in Fort Kochi and Mattancherry to walk everywhere....

This was one of the best value places we stayed in India. The prices are actually listed incorrectly on hostelworld, it turned out to be even cheaper when we got there. Benson, the man who runs it, was very friendly, entertaining, had amazing English, and was always around to help us with sorting out taxis and to give advice about... More

10 Canadians arrive in India in January,2015, all but 1 for their 1st time. Benson and his staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome for the 5 nights we stayed there. From the fresh coconut milk and red rose we received on arrival, to the clean and well kept rooms with private bathroom, to the rooftop terrace... More

I stayed at Costa Gama Homestay for 8 nights in January 2015. The room I had was a single. Small, but comfortable and adequate with ensuite bathroom / toilet. No top sheet on bed but, in view of warm temperature and very reasonable room price did not find this a big deal. My room was at the back of the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Costa Gama for week over the holiday season. We arrived at approx 2am on December 26th after a long (12.5hr) train ride from Goa. 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,...
