We moved here from another hostel because it was in a much better place, had better rooms and was much cheaper. Staff were so lovely and friendly. When we were there they were building a nativity scene and massive santa claus ready for Christmas! The room was nice, clean and had a fan, no a/c. Wifi was fast. It has... More

It is a very homelike place. The owner is a very nice and friendly guy, helpful and welcoming. We felt so relaxed here. If you haggle a bit, you can also have a better price. The first Indian word is never the last))) If you ask, the owner will also introduce you to the staff in one of the local... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. I was lucky enough to nab one of the front sea view rooms. From my explorations along the cliff these rooms are most certainly the best view your going to be able to get. And affordable! At the time I stayed I paid only 600 rupees which considering the view and proximity to every... More

We stayed at Santa Claus during our visit to Varkala. We intended to stay here for three nights but left after one. The owner is a lovely man who seemed disheartened that we didn't want to stay longer. However, the room, although possessing a lovely view, wasn't great at all. The bathroom was ridden with ants, and the bed was... More

Nice location on the cliffs. The room and bathroom were ok, and there was a little terrace outside with 2 chairs and a table were you could sit (we didn't have sea view). No hot water, but that was no problem for us. The worst thing was the bed; it had a plastic mattress, which makes you sweat all night.... More

The only place closer to the SEA on the entire CLIFF. Good Stay, Convenient Rooms and Friendly Management. Place to relax, eat and rejuvenate yourself. Really fresh Sea Food stores at evening in the Cliff is again a fascinating one.

We stayed here based on Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor positive reviews. I think we may just have been unlucky with this one but out of 3 months travelling around India and SE Asia, our night here was our worst one. We had a room at the back around the empty pool rather than one of the nicer ones at the... More

Thoroughly recommend this place. Great location and lovely rooms at a good price. Rooms come with a verandah and fridge, which is a nice touch. Staff are easy going, friendly and leave you to get on with enjoying your holiday. There is a pool, but unfortunately there was no water in it.

We stayed at Santa Claus after a terrible night at another hotel which was very noisy due to the disco and following fights at Rock N Roll Cafe! After such a night our Santa Claus stay was a very welcomed experience. The hotel is at a very good location. We had a front room which also had a very nice... More

A small, basic guest house, but with perfectly good, clean rooms, and fantastic views. If you can get one of the four front rooms, you're in one of the best spots in Varkala. Restaurants and cliff walks all right at your front door. The beach is just a five minute walk along the cliff promenade. We found the owners very... More
