“So much better than kochi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

After a very disappointing stay in the Vedanta hostel in kochi, we were so surprised with this one. Very pretty garden and clean more spacious rooms with good bathrooms. Very friendly staff who were always available making us food all day and organising our houseboat and busses etc. Have no complaints. Thanks!

Had a brilliant stay. It was very quiet at the hostel but so relaxing. We were given free bicycles to explore alleppey which was fantastic. It was slightly out of town but it doesn't make a difference at all.

The thing that made the stay so nice were the staff. They were so kind and helpful. At one point I felt like going to the beach so they organised for us to go to a quieter beach where as a western female I could swim without troubles.

Also the rooms compared to the Vedanta in cochin were fantastic. Clean, good and all on the ground floor :)


Fantastic value for money!!!

Thank you

Totally amazing, friendly staff, easy to fit in and feel comfortable there. Nice clean rooms and every facility you can think of and a brilliant social atmosphere. 10/10 well done Vedanta Wake up! , you guys rule!
This hotel was really great. We were able to contact the staff via email to book an airport pick up ahead of time and they were very quick and helpful in their responses. The rooms were nice and comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful in organizing our trips. It did not seem once like they were trying to rip us off. Good breakfast and lots of free water. Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: rooms on the south side are quieter

Hari (the manager) and Bipin are really nice, friendly guys. They made so much effort to make sure we had the best time in Allupzha and even paid to subscribe so we could watch champions league football :) there are so many activities that the hostel can arrange for you, including the backwater tours, renting motorbikes and even an Indian cooking class which was really interesting. The rooms are a really high standard with ac and tv. There is also a very beautiful garden area for chilling/relaxing. I was very happy with my time here and I hope I can visit again soon! Thanks to all the staff that made it so amazing.

One of the best kept hostels in India. Really friendly staff and a sociable atmosphere. There's even a great little restaurant just around the corner (recommended to us by the hostel staff) that does a great lunch. Perfect base to explore the backwaters and town. I would and have recommended it to anyone and everyone.

I'm a firm believer you get what you pay for, so when staying in this budget hostel i didn't expect too much, I will say the staff here are amazing and if your on a budget this is the place to go. I was very happy in a dorm at £4 a night I got an absolute bargain. Clean sheets and clean room with a basic bathroom.
I did see one of the double rooms and it was a bit musty but I think some are better and again for the price it's really not bad.
The staff were very friendly they go out of their way to make you feel at home and everything is so cheap here.
This is definitely a backpackers place and would recommend this happily to those on a budget.

I was there last sommer (2013) and didn´t have the time till now to write a review, but a don´t want to miss the chace to say thanks to Hari (the manager) for his help and kindness. Vedanta in Alleppery (mainly thanks to Hari) and Varnam Homestay in Wuayanad where the best places in a whole month in India. Apart from Hari, the place ist also beutiful. It´s a little bit far from the citycenter (but you can walk there in 20 min.) and they have a nice garden und the Backwaters (and boats) are just there. Hari was most helpful with booking excursion, food, problems wiht our planetickets and planning the rest of the trip. A lot of things that don´t belong to his duties, but he did them anyway. Thank you for that, Hari.
If i ever came back to Alleppy, i know for sure, i will be stay there again (specially if Hari is also there)
