Reviewed January 29, 2013

Prem's homestay is a good place to stay some days in fort Kochi. Mister Prem is a nice Christian who takes care for his guests. He tries to sell you a boattrip to the backwaters, which is tempting, but when you refuse it's okay. He is helpful.
The room was hot, but I had a noc AC room. No chair in the room, which was more or less unhandy. No view.
I enjoyed my stay nonetheless and I can recommend this place to budget travellers.

Room Tip: Try one with balcony!!!

We were a group of 4people who stayed in this homestay for one night only. It was an weekend trip from Bangalore. I booked a 4-bedded dormitory thru phone. But when we reached there, we came to know from the owner that the dormitory was actually booked in advance thru web-booking which they were unaware unfortunately. But it was really very nice of them to give us two double-bedded rooms at the same price.
The rooms were really clean and so were the washrooms. We were not carrying towels and they provided us the same too.
The owner, Mr. Prem and his daughter take really nice care of their guests. They suggested us to go for the whole day backwater trip and booked the same for us too. Initially though we were a bit skeptical to go for the whole-day tour (we were planning to go for the half-day tour in stead), but after finishing the tour, we were thanking Mr. Prem for suggesting us so. He had also arranged for the Kathakali Show tickets in the evening.
Overall, it was really a very nice experience. I would definitely recommend this homestay to all.

There were about 10 of us stayed in this homestay in Oct 2012. The homestay is very clean and very comfortable. There is hot water available all the time which is very important for us since I have a kid. Cynthia, her father and her sister has been very helpful. They were very kind to prepare lunch and even tea for us. Price is very reasonable and the food is very tasty. I even used their kitchen to prepare simple food for my 2 year old kid. It felt like living in our own house.
I will definitely recommend this homestay to anyone who plans to stay in Kochi.

Four of us spent 3 nights here in October. The rooms are clean, spacious, and ours were air-conditioned. Fort Kochi is easily walkable from the homestay, as are several cafes, restaurants and shops. Our hosts were lovely and were able to arrange a half-day backwater tour for us. Would definitely stay here again.

As it was our first trip to Cochin we had no plans about our accommodation in Cochin. We found this home-stay from the net,and decided to stay here because it was very easily accessible. And we found that it was a good choice of stay. The host was really friendly and helpful. We stayed in a room in first floor which had a balcony. The room had air-conditioner,fan and proper lighting.

The warm breakfast was a good experience that I wont forget. The dad and daughter were always helpful and used to greet us with a warm smile. TV with cable and internet connection were also available here. Prem also helped us in planning our trips in and around Cochin.

The price was also affordable. Next time I am planning to come to Cochin with my family and i would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a room with balcony.
