The hostel was very noisy due to events and many many groups of travellers. The rooms were okay, but not very clean. The staff was friendly as far as they can understand you, their english was mostly not very good.

I stayed here over a week on and off in autumn 2014. The rooms in the new international wing are great - spotless rooms with TV and a/c and very good rates. The staff are great and the place has a nice sociable buzz with students living there, daily conferences and meetings and a little chai and snack shop so... More

One of the most reasonable accomodation was at YMCA TRV. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast is very simple. bread butter jam and puri bhaaji. Tea was good. A well worth the money stay. Definitely recommended

The location of YMCA Trivandrum is excellent. It's in the central part of the city so you can get almost anywhere you would want to go for under 50Rs by rickshaw. Also a big bonus: every rickshaw driver I used knew where to go when I said "YMCA". It's in a very good location. That being said, the hotel itself... More

Basic but large room, bathroom clean with western toilet, although the whole place had a damp whiff with cockroaches and mosquitos aplenty - that said it was the start of monsoon season. Service and attitude was great, it's also away from all the noise and grime and there's a great restaurant in the first hotel on the right that's on... More

Trivandrum is rather boring and we wish we hadn't visited - the zoo is particularly horrendous (in terms of severe animal cruelty). As back packers this YMCA was brilliant!! Far better than most of the grotty hotels we have stayed in. Being around Diwali - we've found everywhere to be really expensive - but this place was great for the... More

If you had memories of your stay at New Delhi’s YMCA International Guest House when you booked your room at Trivandrum YMCA, you are in for disappointment. But if looking for clean and spacious rooms with a moderate price tag, right in the heart of Trivandrum city, you chose Trivandrum YMCA, then compliments for a smart selection. It is located...

We stayed here for 1 night in early february. The room was at a good rate and very spacious. At night, I started to itch and discovered bedbugs under the matress. We were moved rooms to a non ac room and told to take it up with the manager in the morning. The manager apologised and charged me a lower... More
