So, we got off in the nearest road accessible by car and walked with all the baggage to the home stay. This place is a little tough to find, but with Google Maps its...

Anything I needed....and there were a few things, was no problem....booking train tickets, storing my bag for...

This homestay really lived up to its reputation on tripadvisor. Rooms are super clean and comfortable for the price. Kochi is extremely hot so go for the aircon rooms if you can afford. The Kerala breakfasts are great and well worth the 100rps. Above all the hosts are great finding the right balance between always being available to resolve any...

Very clean and located kn the alleyways away from any traffic noise this is a very nice place to base yourself. Easy walk to the fishing nets and restaurants as well as being near the theater of traditional Kerala dance ( called Katakani). Mini also produces excellent Keralain breakfasts and she and her husband are very knowledgeable and helpful.

We arrived early morning but got access to our room immediately. Good sized room - A/C and shower up to standard. Owners helpful - supplied map of area. Location within walking distance of Fishing Nets, places to eat etc. Rickshaws a plenty to take you a little further afield - albeit via a few government shops. Would happily stay again....

We had a really short, 1 night stay at this lovely Bed and Breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to book it again. Very accommodating owners, bottled water on arrival, at breakfast the egg cooked to your preference, tea, coffee, jam and fresh fruit. Our room was without AC but that's how we booked it. Nice balcony, clean and really comfy bed....
