Very very helpful and kind staff, a great location, wc In each dorm so keeps it all more clean. Definitely checking out the rest Vedanta hostels along the way.
Enjoyed my 2 day stop here. A nice and friendly stay. Good for budget travel. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm. Was fine. Got air con room for £3.40. Bathrooms are a bit small though. Overall would recommend if you want to be by the fort. Don't forget to take a tuk tuk tour for 50 rupees. They will show you a lot for your money too. Nights are great on the Porsche too.
Not very sociable, partially due to the overpowering noise from the TV in the common room. I tried turning it off when I was the only one in there but a staff member turned it back on. Almost no water pressure from the showers either. Beds are clean and comfortable, AC is left on all day which is rather nice. Close to the water etc..
All in all Vedanta Wake up is a nice and modern hostel. I just felt a bit uncomfortable because the whole community is very unpersonal. People just stay there for one or two nights without getting to know eacht other. I hang around with my roommates but it was hard to get to know more people from the hostel. There is one living room where people hang around using the wifi or watching TV - BORING!
What a great hostel. Extremely cheap, absolutely marvellous location (right where you want to be in the Fort, on the riverside between the mainland ferry and the Fort sights) and reasonably clean/good wifi/lockers! A rare place in India that's actually a proper multi-bed hostel so it's easy to meet other people and there is a place to drink right outside. Had a fun 2 nights here and would definitely recommend this if you decide to stay on the Fort side.
Great location, right in the heart of Fort Kochi. The rooms were decent and clean and the staff were helpful. I would stay there again.
Really nice cheap hostel. Staff are so friendly and will help you out with anything. Fort cochin is beautiful and a great place to stay :)
A good place to stay if you're on a budget. If you don't mind staying in a dorm room, this hostel has the same standards as nearby homestays that are a bit more expensive. Very friendly and helpful staff! And a nice vibe 😀 I would definitely stay here again!

Not worth it for its money. Dirty, my pillowcase smelt bad, bathroom dirty. INo pantry available. Staff were helpful though. Decent location. No lockes for dorm doors so anyone free to walk in.
Great staff, good location, nice place to hang out and meet fellow travelers. Definitely recommended.
This hostel is fantastic. It's in a super location for walking to all the sites in Fort Cochin. The staff are really knowledgeable, friendly and incredibly helpful. They were able to move things around a bit to accommodate six of us and a last minute seventh. They also arranged a backwater houseboat tour for us in Aleppy which was an amazing price and such a great time!
Not bad, cable TV, basic lounge and staff were pretty helpful. Bathroom was a bit funky but otherwise okay
exellent location ,all in all is a good place to stay! I would go back again ..
Nice hostel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wifi not great though.
The staff made this place! They are super friendly and so helpful. I stayed in both a private room and a dorm and both were very comfortable and clean. Thanks so much

The Vedanta is a welcoming, clean and friendly hostel right in the centre of all the action in Fort Kochi. The staff are more than happy to help you with anything you need, breakfast and snacks are available if your too lazy to leave the hostel and there is 24hr security. No need to look any further this is the best hostel in Fort Kochi.
Great location in Fort Kochi. Clean and comfortable dorms. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good place to meet fellow travelers.
May have been my best hostel experience in India. Perfect location in Fort Kochi, staff that went as far as to ensure the safety and comfort of a friend of mine who needed to be taken to the hospital, and wonderful people to meet and share the space with. Absolutely a big recommendation of mine if you're headed towards Cochin!
The hotel charges quite a high price for a six bed dorm and you can easily get a single room in the area for half that price. The common area is depressing, internet works horribly bad, they charge you a lot and don't even include breakfast. And the worse, I booked a tour with them and they also booked it for a friend in a different hotel. The morning we had to be picket up, the receptionist told me they couldn't pick up my friend. They made me waste the entire day and didn't even apologize.
