I went in first week of June and it is the off season hence there were only 2 couples and myself. I decided to take the cheapest room which was on 500/- for a single person and had one of the most beautiful views from it. In fact the hostel has a beautiful view as its on a slope. It... More

After staying at the hostel the manager allowed us to leave a couple of bags in reception overnight. However, he later re-negged on his offer and threatened to throw our bags onto the street. Completely unnecessary and a terrible way to treat paying customers. Do yourself a favour and stay in nearby Vattakanal. It's prettier, cheaper and friendlier!

Greetings from Greenlands! I am sorry but your allegations and reasons are baseless and meaningless. Reasons being :- 1. 30 years of being in this business, we have no reason to let a customer leave their baggage overnight at our hotel. We are a hotel where we provide our customer(s) to stay overnight with their baggage. It makes no sense... More

This is a lovely place to stay if you are spending some time in kodikannal. It is a beautiful hostel with wonderful views (especially for sunrise). It is a nice distance away from the main town and a nice walking distance to vattakannal for beautiful waterfalls and much more. Gets a little cold in the night so a good sleeping... More

A brilliant place to spend your valuable holidays.. That view!!! A lovely place to stay and enjoy the beauty of Kodai.. The view of the plains is to die for.. Good house-keeping and service. Greenlands experience just adds up to the whole Kodai experience..

Beautiful location. My room had an amazing view of the plains. The night view is absolutely stunning. The misty mornings is something you would want to wake up to. The house keeping and room service is good too. Overall I enjoyed my stay in Greenlands.

Staying here should have been good given that the view from the terrace is lovely, but the service we received was very poor. They forced us to take a double room when there were dorm beds completely free; none of the bed sheets were clean and neither was the floor; they promised us hot water but neither the tap or...

We booked "superdeluxe" rooms and when we saw them we just left. At 1800 Rs each, they were dirty, most of the lights were not working as was the hot water in one of the rooms. The hostel has no common areas and no eating room or restaurant of any kind. They serve food out of pots like a food... More

We actually didn't know about this place until the taxi driver told us. It was quite basic accommodation but with an incredible view. It definitely takes you away from the hustle and bustle! I would say it's the best accommodation for the price in Kodaikanal. Very happy we ended up here. It was great to get away from it all... More
