Vedanta Wake Up! Kovalam
Ranked #21 of 52 Specialty Lodging in Kovalam
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Fantastic hostel that was a pleasure to stay at. I am usually a bit hesitant about hostels, but would recommend this place to everyone! It was clean, comfy and the staff was fantastic. I especially enjoyed the south Indian breakfast. Nice touch!

Room Tip: try the dorm rooms if looking for budget options.

I stayed at Vedanta for 2 nights with my family and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The staff was freindly and always willing to help. The hotel is walking distance to Kovalam Lighthouse Beach. My only suggestion would be to provide lunch and dinner facilities as well...as they only seem to serve breakfast

Room Tip: Excellent wifi facilities

I really felt welcome there from heart. The staff is just great - they make you feel like home and really care for you. I was there on a public holiday and they celebrated this day in a very authentic way with guests and friends - that was amazing! In the room it was quiet so I slept well. You can have there both - party and relaxing and that I really appreciate. Very short walk from the beach, good location. The best hostel I've ever stayed in India!

We had a wonderful stay at Vedanta Wake up! The room was an excellent size for the price and the bed was comfortable. The staff running the hotel was very helpful and answered all of our questions about the place. Whilst here we met with other travellers we previously had met in other parts of Kerala as well as new people. The hotel is the perfect distance from the bus station meaning you are able to walk there.
