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... More

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 stayed here for a relaxing few days.Initially taking one of the A/C cottages [with mosquito net around a huge bed] and a fridge. It's in a quiet location no more than a short distance [100-150 metres] to a great beach with surf like waves all day. Also close to a number of enjoyable eating places [ God's Own Country... More

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... More

I had a giant spider, lizard, small bugs and tons of ants in my room. Only in the morning I discovered many dead ants in my bed, under the blanket... WiFi was very weak and often... More

I stayed at Jikki's for 2 weeks a yoga retreat with my wife and a small group from England. The room was basic and cleaned regularly, although the mosquito net needed to be renewed. The location was excellent with easy access to good restaurants, an excellent beach and shopping. Beware swimming in the sea, especially to the left side of... More

Jicky's is set back from the Varkala cliffs, surrounded by coconut palms and other guest houses. We only met Nigat, one of the staff, who was charming. Our room on the top floor looked delightful: spotlessly clean with naive green landscapes painted on the white walls. At night the room was quiet but very hot, even with the fan on... More

You will get a friendly and helpful reception from the staff at Jicky's Nest. Various rooms at various prices, all are scrupulously clean and the hot water is available all day. Location is good, nice and quiet and only couple of minutes from the cliff top path. A very good budget choice.
