There were so many positive reviews about this place that I was confident with my choice. However, must say I was a bit dissapointed with the quality of the room. The room was very small, hardly any room to put your bag. The sheet was to small for the matress, so that does not seem to bery very hygienic. The bathroom was tiny and the water was cold during my stay for 2 nights. No towel was provided. Wifi in the communal area didn't work. My biggest problem was with the moskito screens in front of the window: there were so many holes in them. After the first night I hade more then a dozen moskito bites, after the second night over thirty moskito bites. Staff was allright, but no facilities for buying a drink for example. They keep closing the gate and locking the front door behind you when you leave, which means you have to ring the bell to enter, which made me feel uncomfortable. If they want to lockk everytinhg, they should give the guest a key to the front door.
So what is the upside? It's a great location, right in the centre, with a grass field in front where kids come and play during the day. It's close enough to walk to all the tourist spots in Fort Cochin, but far enough from the large numbers of backpackers.
