“good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

The rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. The owner, Abu, was helpful and woke up to assist when we arived at 1am in the morning. He also helped with organising tickets and a scooter.
for the day. Provided free omlette and chai breakfast every morning. Good experience, just the price of the room and laundry was more expensive compared to other places in south India.

we stayed in Honolulu homestay for 5 nights and enjoyed our trip. As positive comments I can summarize the points as: being in a good location, have clean rooms, friendly atmophere, helpful manager, kind and nice behaviour, good guidence for sightseeing and visiting the kochin's attractions, good breakfast, and good value for money.
I can add that for the betterment of the conditions a regular room cleaning can be considered.
At last, I recommend the travellers to have a good experience staying in honolulu homestay in kerala.

Overall this place is a good choice. Clean, well located, tidy, reasonable breakfast (included) and good price for what you get. Mr. Abu is very helpful and also helped us find an alternative homestay (not as good though) when we wanted to extend our stay but did not book ahead of time.

Stayed here for two weeks in January after
trying a couple other places and found this
to be far better value than some of the
heritage hotels, with a great location in the
centre of Fort Cochin and a homely and
welcoming atmosphere. You get AC and free wifi at room tariffs where
you will get neither
at a lot of places in town. The rooms are
clean and functional -- it is definitely the pick of the bunch
and perfect if you're a family. It's a place so unlike a lot of
homestays that feel like hotels,
you'll definitely have a chance to get to
know other guests and the very friendly and
helpful staff if you stay a few days. Overall -
very positive experience with none of the
nickel-and-diming or pressure-selling you sometimes encounter in these parts.

I stayed 3 days in Honolulu Homestay. I stayed in a nice big room with A/C and a big balcony. The room was very clean. Both Mr Aboo and his son, Taris, were very helpful and welcoming. Mr Aboo made you feel at home and was very a very relaxed host. It was walking distance from all the main attractions in Kochi. Situated right in between Jew Town and the Chinese fishing nets. Mr Aboo also helped me get a taxi to the airport very early in the morning due to a possible strike. Had he not informed me about the strike I would have missed my flight. The breakfast was good. I was very satisfied with my stay and will definitely recommend Honolulu Homestay.

I stayed at Honolulu homestay on the 18th and 19th of Jan with a colleague. The owner, Mr. Aboo is a very helpful and courteous person with a sharp eye for maintaining hygiene. The bed linen and towels were spanking clean. The toilets were most modern and beautifully maintained, albeit a bit on the small side. But you cannot expect more at this price. All in all , a great value for money.
I look forward to making a return visit

We arrived in Kochi at 4am from France and got to the homestay at 7am. We were sleep-deprived and I was afraid we wouldn't have a room until much, much later in the day, but the owner Aboo went beyond the call of duty and let us have a room to sleep in until the room we'd reserved was vacated and cleaned. Afterwards, Aboo was most helpful with all of our further bookings and gave us good advice for where to go and what to visit. Overall, the room was a good value, clean and comfortable, hot water, not luxurious, but you get your money's worth. Thanks!
