I stayed three nights and had a really nice time. Friendly staff and nice view. I can really recommend this place. Its wonderful to spend tne afternoon in the hammock reading a book and looking to the sea. Its also a nice walk to both the msin beach and the black beach.

Really helpful staff, they helped us with renting a scooter and moved us to another room when ours was overwhelmed by ants. It's in a really good location right on the cliff. It could however have been cleaned a little better.

Bamboo Village created a safe and friendly environment for me and many others. I even met some life long travel friends here as well, and that is priceless. The staff is always there to help and are kind, funny, and GENUINE people. Occasionally, if sitting with them at the right time, they would offer you their daily chai, they took... More

The place was located just on the cliff from where you can see the sea, beautiful location with enough peace of mind.. Both golden beach and black beach are at walkable (5-10 min) distance.. Rooms can be maintained little better.. On a whole ' a good value for money' you spend..

The stay was fine, but we were misled by the picture shown on the web site we booked through. We were under the impression that we were booking a hut because of the picture of a hut beside it accompanied by the words “Standard sea view”. It would have been clearer if it said “Standard sea view room”. However it... More

Nice and perfectly located hotel directly on the north cliff consisting of some rooms and some huts. Kind and helpfull stuff - good people. Room was clean and nice with a little terrace in front. Both beaches are 5 min walk away. Only the phrase "seafacing" is a little misleading for the rooms, as because of the palms, huts, and... More

I stayed at Bamboo Village for four days in December 2013, in one of the small huts. The rooms are adequate, though the bathrooms are murky. The best feature is the front porch, where one can sit and admire the nicely tended garden. BV is located toward the north end of Varkala Cliff, which is a clutch of identical tourist... More

Booked online at agoda which gets you a better price than if you book through the hotel itself. Once they have identified that you are foreign the price will increase. We arrived with the internet booking and the owner pushed us to upgrade to a more expensive room. We hadn't even put our bags down yet and his manner was... More

What this place lacks in charm from it's owners is made up for in it's decent rooms at a fair price: 350rs. I'd say the concrete building is a better bet than the potentially bug infested huts - which are more expensive to stay in. To be honest though i'd give varkala a swerve, this place is teeming with pervs!... More
