We had only planned on three nights in Varkala but decided to stay longer.Found Mummy Bamboo just off the main drag on North Cliff. Excellent value no frills accommodation in convenient location. Also arrange taxis etc. All other services by arrangement as well. Use pools at nearby hotels for reasonable daily fees.

I stayed over a week. Rani is a wonderful cook and all her family is very kind. The rooms are clean, pretty and located right next to the path down to the beach. I really enjoyed the quiet of the place to relax and chill.

This was our second visit to this homestay after a break of two years. rani still has the warmest welcome and loveliest smile. The rooms are clean and well kept and the food was lovely. The mattresses have been upgraded and are comfortable. Nothing is too much problem and we will be coming back again.

We moved to this hotel after spending one night at another hotel which we really didn't like (hill top ayurvedic beach resort). The woman who manages the rooms, Bany, is very charming and helpful. She also has a kitchen and can cook homemade food if you want, which is much better and cheaper than the food served at the restaurants... More

Immaculately clean, good WiFi, bed comes with mosquito net and is big and comfortable. Large balcony. Towels provided. 50 meters from North Cliff, the good restaurants and the beach. No hot water (bucket available) The main selling point is Rani who runs the place. She's very welcoming and will provide anything that you need.

This is one here is a clean, safe and a peaceful guesthouse. Aunty who runs it is a warms and friendly lady. I strongly recommend the place to all travelers, lone lady travelers in particular. The location is perfect as the north cliff is hardly two minutes walk. Everything that you need is at walkable distance. Aunty was kind enough... More

I was expecting an Egyptian sarcophagus theme, but no, it's Mummy in the sense of Mommy, Mother, Amma. I stayed five weeks and I loved it. The Indian family who own and operate the guesthouse live next door, so they were always around, and they were super friendly and helpful. Great location in the center of the cliff area. Very...
