I stayed in the dorm (one of the few I found in India, and definitely one of the only mixed gender ones in the country) and found the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly. The staff are wonderful, professional and knowledgeable. And the location is very central in Fort Kochi (just a few minutes from the Chinese Fishing Nets). The dorm bathroom could have been cleaner, but I guess 6 people using a bathroom will do that. There was also a sign telling us to ask them to clean it at any point. So not really their fault I guess.
