These are the best views in the entire city. After a nice walk outside of the city downtown, you emerge into Greenlands perched on a cliffside overlooking the plains of Tamil Nadu below. The rooms are nothing amazing, but for the price and location you can't really go wrong.

A good Place to stay. The valley view from the room is beautiful. Choice of food is limited and this works in a youth hostel style. Good Rooms and Toilets. Consider like a home stay accommodation. visit their site http://www.greenlandskodaikanal.com/. See the rooms and book.

We are from Kodaikanal ourselves, however we are at present residing away from Kodaikanal. GreenLands is owned and managed by our family friend and his gracious Missus, Mr. Vijay Soans &... More

Arrived quite late and was shown a double room priced at 600 rupees (dorm 350). Upon further inspection we noticed the sheets weren't changed, and actually the room was quite dirty. Arranged to have new sheets pronto, and some extra blankets. Woke up in the morning to the most stunning view. It doesn't really matter about the room as the... More

I think of all the hotels this place has the most beautiful scenic view, both at night as well as day. The rooms are not very comfortable But very cosy and homely. The room boys are always ready to help with a smile. Breakfast available on advance notice. Overall I think the best place in Kodai!

Most unfriendly hostel manager ever! Dorms are ok but way too pricey for what they offer. No hot water, very basic. They just live of their lonely planet entry and keep increasing prices. So my advice would be to go to Vattakanal instead. It's only a view km or a 40 min walk.

The Greenland's Youth Hostel is an attractive tourist spot . With its scenic beauty and natural landscape it is the best place of accommodation in Kodaikanal . Leave alone the rustling wind and the luscious garden with its various shades of flowers . It has a homely kitchen and exquisite panoramic view of Kodai ! Suited besides the "Coaker's Walk"... More

After spending some time in reviews, we settled for Greenlands resort. Booked accomodation for our group(we were 18 people). I reserved to accomodation just by phone call and transferring booking advance. This place is located very close to the tourist places like coaker's walk, bryant park and lake, away from crowd. Pros: Gives very beautiful sunrise and nice landscape views.... More
