Booked a room in May for August, I received 3 days before my arrival a note that my room can't be confirmed because of "renovation". In all my life I haven't seen such unprofessional behavior. I'm quite sure they could have informed me long before without creating the difficulties to me to find something else while I was already traveling.... More

Good place for backpackers. Made the mistake of booking for family visit. Room was in 2nd floor and it was a pain to drag the suitcases. No help available. Also no morning tea was available. We checked out next day even though we had a booking for two nights

If you are backpacking or on budget, I would highly recommend this place. We, a bunch of backpackers, reserved two cheap rooms which were clean and very comfortable. Previously we had stayed at a dormitory in Vedanta Munnar which was also great. Very friendly, helpful and cordial staff. Situated in Fort Kochi which is some way off Ernakulam and the... More

As our first Indian hostel we weren't expecting much. Enjoyed the AC in our room, but there a constant drip in the shower and no toilet paper. We were warned by others of really unhygienic conditions in the dorm rooms, but our double room was fine. Good location and fast Wifi however

OK rooms with power, AC, fans and lockers. Breakfast not included. Quiet when we visited but would be OK when full, wifi was good.

We stayed just for one night, only thing i like about this place was location. It was close to everything and in walkable distance. Since we were mostly out in day and next morning we din feel anything negative. This is not Resort nor hotel nor lodge so do not expect anything. Staff were quite friendly here.
