Poor location – 15-20 minute walk from the beach, on a back street surrounded by blind bends and other home stays. Upon arrival, instead of checking my booking, the staff showed me a room for 800rs... When I was finally presented the 'dorm' it was a rooftop with a mattress and mosquito net. When I asked for a locker, as mine was in use, I was told there was nothing they could do. Needless to say, I stayed elsewhere. Don't be fooled. There's far better places to stay in Varkala for the money.

Well the chilling/garden area was alright but the dorm was terrible honestly. 16 people sleeping on the roof, on not so comfortable mattresses on the floor, no fan, lots of mosquitos, ants. The bathroom is outside like in the garden area. wouldn't recommend the dorm. you can easily find much better places for same amount of money close by.

It's an overpriced stay. We needed to complain 3 times to change the room. For 1400 a night they wanted us to stay in a small room, super noisy, so we didn't get any sleep. When I booked online, it said it's delux room with sitting aria. So the staff managed to change the room, but didn't tell us we have to pay extra, so when we went check out, the guy at reception wanted more money, we didn't agree. The cleaner didn't come even one time in one week we stayed, dinner took them 2h to prepare.

The basic double room turned out to be a bamboo hut with thin mattresses just on the floor. There were only curtains for the windows and no lockers so we had to leave our stuff in the middle of the room otherwise people could reach in through the windows. There were a lot of mosquitoes and no nets. Bathrooms and toilets was in the garden with no proper locks and could be cleaner. The family had a cat en two girls that kept walking on the dinner tables. Food was okay. There are much better places

Five minutes walk from a beach that will leave you euphoric (complete with restaurants, to suit every taste imaginable), is Shiva Garden Home Stay. Beautifully decorated and run by as courteous and as warm a family as you will meet, in India, Shiva Garden offers comfortable accommodation at easily affordable prices, as well as exquisite food, a highly sociable atmosphere and staff whom, as well as being quick to help, at the slightest problem, you will very soon come to consider friends.
