“Place is awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

Stayed for about a week. Awesome place at an affordable price. Nice new building, wicked shower, and the AC blows cold cold! The staff are great too. Highly recommend it :-) There are a few great places to eat right around the corner too.

Loved out stay here! Rooms were impeccably clean, good shower, shared balconies and really friendly staff! Binu looked after us well and would return to fort kochi not only for the lovely people but also for the fridge like room! Desperately needed in this humidity! Very reasonably priced too!

I stayed at the homestay along KB Jacob Road. It was a very good stay.

One of the things that struck me was how friendly and sincere Mr Binu is. He would always have a bright smile on his face.

The place is also very clean and cosy. The beds are comfortable and nice to sleep in. It was such a memorable experience staying at the homestay.

i stayed in kochi almost for 3 weeks, all of this time the rampart dormitory have been my home. comfortable here, easy atmosphere, nice people as staff, and clean as well. valued for the money, because there is good bed, airco, nice shower, convenient kitchen.. just everything.
walking distance to all places in fort kochi. and in conclusion, why not come here

I've never written a review on trip advisor before but feel I must do after staying at Rampart Homestay in Fort Cochin. The owner, Binu, was unbelievably helpful. We arrived from Ernakulam train station in the middle of the night and he greeted us with a lovely smile and warm welcome. We were a bit unsure of our plans for the following few days and he sat with us and gave us his invaluable advice and recommendations- all have been incredible and the highlights of our holiday in India (particularly the day boat trip to Allepy and staying in Munnar for 2 nights). The price is staggeringly good- the room we had was quite small and basic but for the price and service you really must consider staying here if you're looking for an authentic and welcoming Keralan experience.

Rampart Homestay is a fantastic place to stay in Kochi if yo are looking for a cheap and well located homestay with really relaxed and friendly staff. Good value for money, nice clean room, good location and Binu and Hazel were so friendly and helpful. We arrived at 2am and they were awake to greet us with a smile. The next day they helped with our accommodation in Munnar, they arranged for a sightseeing trip and gave us advice on where to eat. They even helped with arranging a doctors appointment. I would recommend Rampart to anyone spending a few days in Kochi.

We stayed in rampart on our second trip to fort Cochin, we had stayed in a few places there so we got a feel for the town and value...
It's a great homestay, really good. It's new, clean, extremely comfortable beds, great bathrooms, friendly and has a lovely atmosphere. It's just down from the kathakali centre and not very far to walk from town, there are a few corner shops very near for bits and bobs! The manager Binu is friendly and really helpful... There is a kitchen if you want to cook or make tea at any time... It wasn't too busy, quiet in the evenings... Al round it was really great and the best place and value for money I found. Good if you are a group/ couple or single female too which is good to know. The price is the best we found too :)
