Reviewed 28 March 2017

A two day rest stop over.
Power was intermittent.
The rooms were filthy.
Fecal stains on the sheets
Service was non existent
Take your own loo paper and soap.
Close to the markets and restaurants and bars but not close to the beach.
Not a place you want to come home to.

Comfortable bungalow in the green, quiet and silent but right in the middle of Varkala Beach. A plus are the owner and Lal.
A little corner of quiet paradise close to the main street. I have booked the bungalow for 4 nights and ended up staying longer.

This place is sweet! My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and it was the best spot to stay! Cool little bamboo huts that are just steps from the cliff and ocean. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Clean, good vibes and veryCHEAP surprisingly for the value you get. We also left our bags safely with them for the whole day because we had to catch a taxi at midnight, that was a bonus. Stay here if you want a good place in Varkala!!

Stayed here for 3 nights, the room was simple but clean and comfortable with a sea view. There is a nice garden with hammocks, but no restaurant though there are many nearby. Staff were helpful, recommended.

We booked two nights in this hostel with some friends, and had amazing time there. The personnel ordered in advance some cabs from the railway station for us. They are very friendly and reactive to client's demands.
It's a beautiful and peaceful place, 1mn far for the sea, with clean rooms and a chill garden with hamacs.
Can't wait to go there again
