Hi, I reached Benson's Home stay at early morning, I didn't expect a warm welcome at early morning but they did. I stayed there for 4 days, it really makes me feels like my own home. clean rooms, friendly staffs and good service. I came to see a sentence "Gods own country" everywhere in the road side near the home... 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

Old Vasco da Gama, squashbuckling navigator was over here 1498 in the mad land grab that Europe was pursuiing straight after the discovery of the New World. Costa Gama Homestay takes its name from this figure and names of explorers from the era, names of ships, names of their wives all feature popularly. This is a part of India where... More

We enjoyed our stay at Costa Gama. The rooms are basic (but so is the price) - but unlike most places we stayed in Kerela, there was wifi and a handy stack of travel books. Its a little further (an extra ten mins walk) away from the main sites and hotels - but we appreciated being away from the masses... More

I have just spent a week with Benson and Shiny and absolutely loved it. It is a lovely, clean, well run homestay. Excellent value for money and in an excellent location. Would recommend to anyone going to Kochi.

This was the fourth time I have stayed at Costa Gama and I am booked again next year. If that fact alone doesn't say loud and clear how perfect a stay here is, please let me tell you that Benson and Shiny are lovely hosts who are more like family than merely hosts both in duty and genuine honesty and...

The owner of Costa Gama homestay gave us a warm welcome with a big smile. He even had a Dutch poster on the wall with tulips and a windmill on it. The rooms are not too big, pleasant and very clean for a very good price. And Benson gave us some good advice for the rest of our trip.

We had a great time staying at Costa Gama. Benson (and Ignatious) are great fun and very helpful and attentive. Fantastic advice from them too, and really good of them to let us check in at 6.30am after a silly flight time! It's not really a homestay as such, as they don't do food and you don't really mix with... More

I stayed at costa Gama for 3 weeks - inc Christmas and NYE - and was really made to feel part of the family. Benson (the owner and manager) has an encyclopaedic knowledge and it came in handy many times! The rooms are clean and simple. The house itself is a 10min walk from the centre of Fort Kochi, but...

I have stayed with Benson and Shiny for weeks on end and every time I come back my boyfriend and I stop in to say hello. It was my first time staying on my own in India and the family made me feel super safe. Ignatius (the grandpa) is always monitoring the front gate and wishing you well on your... More
