We had an AC room. The room was very basic and simple (bed, table + 2 chairs, TV ( didn't check if it's work or not). The shower was old and not very clean. Although there is a wifi we couldn't catch it from our room. The stuff service and involvement was minimal (in comparison to its' stuff in varkala...

It was a pleasant stay here and thought that facilities offered for a reasonable price range of 12-1500 were adequate. Got AC and satellite TV but most importantly got a place which was very nicely located in fort kochi area. Had a noon problematic and fun stay and might visit again.

Very well located in Fort Kochi, clean, nice staff and comon area. Not too cheap, but not expensive. I took a dorm and felt very confortable there. Good for aircon lovers (it was quite cold in the night!).

I booked in for 2 nights here and only stayed for 1. The staff were unfriendly and watched TV most of the day. The rooms did not seem clean at all. I have been in India for a month now and there are much better places in the same price range that include breakfast etc.
