We opted to stay in the "penthouse" beach front room, the location was brilliant. The accommodation is basic as expected for a backpackers hostel style accommodation. When we arrived there was only one lady and a man from the restaurant next door around, neither spoke much English, we managed to get access to our room and were told the owner...

My daughter had a really horrible experience at this place. The owner Harris pretended to be a masseuse but took things a bit too far. My poor daughter was put in a terrifying situation. Harris not only did this to her but displayed a wild temper. They fled out of this flee ridden place to another place further up the...

Mandala beach hostel is a little paradise directly at the beach. It is a great spot to see sunsets and to relax in the calm atmosphere and just listen to the waves. Harri, the owner and host, really takes care of you and make you feel at home. We did a backwater tour he offered and it was an awesome...

The place is an extraordinary spot especially for a budget place. The sea-view cottage is simply great. The host and owner, Harris, is a verry friendly and open person. The other staff, Bindi und Sri are very nice people too and offer a super service. We were simply thrilled by the cottage on the beach, the view, the ocean, the...

Amazing view of the sea, quiet beach side, with adjacent restaurant. Great food, very warm and sweet staff. Owner Harris will never let you leave unsatisfied. The perfect place for a bit of relaxation and fun by the beach. Backwaters easily reached by auto, or try the grand houseboats. Will definitely come back again!

We had a two night stay here, which was incredible cheap. No luxurious stay, but covered basic needs. Thus the cleaning could have been better and the place was in general quite used. The manager was very helpful.

Had a lovely relaxing stay, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The manager organised a great canoe day trip for me to see the backwaters and local village life. I will definitely go back again when I'm next in Kerala.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mandala is a small guest house located on a quite part of Alleppey Beach. It has two basic rooms, one bamboo cottage and another cottage with a great view to the beach. We just started our annex property near Mandala and it got upstair rooms with sea view. All rooms are bath attached and three of them with bath tubs. We organize some trips to the sea with fishermen, to the back waters and we also do BBQ on the beach. You can have a comfortable and relaxed stay over here. ... more   less
