“Social, good location, decent rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

I recommend to stay here for its value. The rooms are big and clean and pretty cheap. Cold shower only. Wifi is decent, but only works in the lobby which doesn't have much sitting space. It's tucked away from the noise and touts of the main strip which are nice. The rooftop is awesome and you can meet lots of people up top. Negotiate hard for room prices. Took the day backwaters tour through the hotel and it was really nice.

I only stayed here one night as I was staying at another hostel in Allepey but i met some people whilst travelling that were staying here. They invited me to an evening of food, drink and great music on the Roof Top! It was an excellent night. The owners are really down to earth and friendly, they offered food and drink and showed me around Allepey. If you are going to Kerala i strongly suggest you stay here.
The rates are really good and the staff can't do enough for you.
Aside from the amazing views and beautiful backwaters it was great to go somewhere where you could meet people.
Its a really relaxed and slightly 'Hippy' atmosphere, there are hammocks and incredible wall art dotted around from several guests. 5 Star!

It's more a backpacker's place, but we (couple 54 years) felt welcome here. The room we had was simple, basic and reasonable clean. We had a smelly sewer in the bathroom, but it was not dirty. The staff is friendly and there is a roof-top, quiet messy, but full of atmosphere. The location is great: quiet area, no traffic, near the bus-stand and on walking distance to the boat jetty and the town centre. Good bike parking at night.

Room Tip: Some rooms have small double-beds, so if you need space, ask for a room with larger beds. (in fact 2...

We had a great stay at lemon dew they couldn't have done anymore for us. We also organised out backwater trip through them on a 2 tier boat for cheaper than what was quoted at the jetty. But the best bit about this hotel is Ashkar he couldn't have helped us more and spent all night talking to us about India, give him a pay rise!!

Lemon Dew was recommended to us by a friend of the operator who did not lead us astray!!!
The rooms are simple, clean and fairly priced. The communal rooftop area is a peaceful spot to chill in the middle of the day and a friendly meeting area in the evening. The music on the rooftop was also great!

Room Tip: first floor is cheaper, but noisier

I was in Alleppey/Alappuzha for a day break during my Kayaking Expedition from Kollam to Kottappuram, and was looking for a place to get fresh and take a nap. A sign board where I had parked my Kayak led me to this wonderful place run by a couple of energetic youths who also had passion for rowing and athletics. I was humbled when they offered me a room without any hesitation and without even asking questions. Though I haven't stayed at this place, I am sure these guys would make their guests happy with their vibrant attitude. This place is so close to the Alleppey Boat Jetty and the Bus Station, but still away from the chaos in a silent residential area.
Highly recommended.

Stayed here in Dec 2013. Decent room, well priced.The guys that run the place are super chilled and very helpful. There is a common area on the roof with hammocks to kick back in. Can be a bit hot in the day time and you'll need mossie spray at night. That aside its a super chilled place to hang out, get a buzz on and meet others. The owner cooks dinner in the evening, good food and reasonably priced. Booked the canoe trip from the guesthouse and once again reasonably priced.Worth checking out, overall good value with great atmosphere.
