“Woke up in Kochi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

Not quite as good as the other Vedantas I stayed at (in Verkala and Alleppey) because it doesn't have a garden, but fine nonetheless. The double room which I had was clean and comfortable. Guidebooks sometimes recommend people to stay in Ernakulam, but if you're going to be visiting Kochi for any length of time, it makes sense to avoid unnecessary trips and stay in the centre of things. For this, the Vedanta is ideal.

The double room is really clean and modern. Having a good ac, LCD tv and wifu . Very soft towels are provided. The staff can help arrange multiple tours in Kerala. The location is great near the bus stop , close to restaurants , etc..
The rooms on the second floor have no WiFi access.

I reached Fort Kochin at 4am in the morning but the caretaker was nice enough to wake up and open the door when i called on the landline number. The location was very nice and close to the nice cafes and the Chinese fishing net which was perfect for sunsets ! The bathroom was clean and you end up meeting fellow travelers who are like minded. You can rent bikes for Rs. 100 a day and cycle around the city :)

I stayed at this hostel about a year ago. The service was great, the owner was super friendly, and the location right near the Chinese fishing nets of Fort Kochi. Only complaint was that our bathroom was a little dirty and the toilet didn't work super well. Rather than fix it permanently they took my friends deodorant stick and slammed it between the wall and a pipe, which did fix it but left my friend without her deodorant stick for the rest of our stay (which was pretty funny). The owner went out of his way to recommend stuff to do and even made sure we got a ride to the airport before a bus strike (things like that tend to happen in communist-run Kerala every so often, but that's part of the experience!). Would highly recommend if having access to high-end commodities isn't super important to you.

This is a pretty clean hostel which proved to be a great place to meet people. There is a nice lounge area which is perfect for socialising. They will organise tours and stuff at the desk and are generally pretty helpful but sometimes a bit odd. The only drawback was that the aircon was not working and they just wouldn't do anything to fix it

We had a great experience at this hostel. The manager George and staff were terrific and couldn’t do enough to help us. Our private double room had everything we needed. Located near the Chinese fishing nets and walking distance to several restaurants and cafes.
