Basic amenities but clean and comfortable with a friendly atmosphere. My room was a good size with a comfortable double bed and very effective air conditioning, which you need in the heat! The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is perfect as it's just by the harbour. Overall great value for money.

Cleanliness: Dorm was clean, attached bathrooms were grimey with yellow soap scum. Bathrooms need more regular cleaning. Price: I booked on Booking.com and they applied a bunch of baloney "taxes" like luxury tax (pfft) and... More

Really comfortable accommodation, friendly staff and a good place to chill out. We hired bikes from the hostel and cycled round the peninsula - would really recommend! In a great area, right by the market and 5 minutes from the Chinese fishing nets.

First, I had incredible experiences and stays at other Vedanta Hostels (Varkala, Kovalam) which is why I booked to stay here in Kochi. However, this was one of the worst hostel experiences I've had in my 7 years of backpacking. First, the A/C was broken in our room - which is fine - and the shower was broken and water... More
