This was our cheapest night in varkala and one of the most comfortable. The rooms are nicely decorated cool and clean with mosquito nets. The shower has hot water which was an added luxury and the guy on the front desk was very friendly.

A very friendly welcome met us and we were offered a choice of two rooms, our preferred choice seemed marginally better although had far too much furniture for the size of the room and mosquito net wasn't in great shape. Pretty clean room and bathroom. Excellent location near the main cliff stretch where all the main amenities are. I never...

Jicky's Nest is a nice place to stay nearby Varkala Beach. Staff were friendly and eager to serve. Room was cozy and the mosquito net kept bugs away. Area felt peaceful and you can find your way to the beach easily through backyards and narrow alleys. Just ask the way!

Nijad the manager welcomed us warmly when we arrived. The rooms are reasonably priced and every light and fan works! The walls have lovely paintings in indian style. Super clean room! Also nijad helped with every little thing concerning our further travels. The terraces of the rooms are nice to chill out in the evening. A very relaxable enjoyable stay!

We spent three nights here as part of a tour of Kerala. The rooms are big and the second floor has a long balcony, with the end room benefiting from a terrace area that is largely private. The host is very welcoming and being set back from the strip means that all of the hotel is very peaceful at night...
