As i was a single budget traveler,i didn't stay on the main building (which obviously had new and better equipped rooms)or in one of the nice cottages of the garden, but in a cheaper and therefore basic room which i think it was located next to the staff's room(or maybe just another basic room).You get what you pay for.My room...

The staff are all extremely friendly and are really helpful. Especially with getting to around and away from varkala. The price is really good value for money. The rooms are white and hand painted designs of birds and flowers are a nice touch. The only reason the property isn't getting the 5 stars is the sheets are dirty and stained... More

The owner is super nice. 500 rupees for a room which was really clean & also had good wifi. Very near to the beach as well so a great location with a couple of restaurants near by as well. I would stay here again.

Jickys is a peaceful, clean and comfortable guesthouse. Our room was beautiful with high ceilings and clean white walls and sheets. The guesthouse is situated about 5 minutes walk from the main strip of restaurants and shops and is therefore very well located. The staff were helpful, pleasant & discreet.

Hi all, We stayed at Jickys for a few nights in April of 2014, and had a really great time exploring the area, and really enjoyed the good location of our accomodation, Jickys. On our fifth night we had been silly enough to keep our valuables on the table with the window open and had them stolen while we were... More

The room is basic fan, mosquitoes net (very useful) ,nice bed and a small balcony. There is in room Wi-Fi. Hot water is there, but it is not available in the shower only from the tap so you have to use the bucket. The hotel is 4 minutes from the cliff on a path with poor lighting . We felt... More

Stayed here 3 nights, very happy with our room, we had a fan and mozzie net. Nice seating area outside the room, also with a fan over it which was good at keeping the bugs away when sitting outside in the evening. Close to all the restaurants etc but set slightly back so nice and quiet in the evening, felt... More

We has a cottage which was nice enough but very expensive, as we looked around Varkala we found much nicer places much cheaper because they weren't on Trip Advisor or in the Lonely Planet. My advice is don't bother using web portals to book your accommodation, our experience so far has meant every place on TA or other booking websites... More

Comfy bed (which is hard to find in Kerala). A great mozzie net (which was needed). Room was small but clean and well decorated. Free filtered water dispenser. No hot water but a good shower. Good location 2 mins to the beach. Can't fault it, I paid 1300rs through Agoda.
