I went during off season (early May) so the place was relaxed and comfortable.


Cleanliness and budget is the USP. Check in process was quick. Staff was helpful. Rooms and bed was really nice. Loved pleasant environment. I fell sick due to the immense heatstroke but the manager sent a refreshing juice when he found about my condition. And that was of great help. Really looking forward to visit again. Kudos vedanta!


We visit Varkala frequently but it was surprising experience that a hotel of such warm hospitality existed in Varkala. We stayed in one of the double deluxe room and the experience was excellent. The ambience & hospitality is very nice. Food is of excellent quality especially the breakfast. Definitely looking forward to visit again.


Nice hostel, well located


Solid place. As advertised, location is perfect--very short walk to the beach, but far enough away to avoid the bustle. Be warned, the dorm rooms are laughably tiny, so if you're no longer at an age to enjoy slumber parties (or not taking any sleep-aides from the local bar/pharmacy), I'd look into a private room. Overall a fine establishment.


terrible staff. bad atmosphere. your better of staying anywhere else at the rate as well.


Great place to hang out and meet backpackers. 5 mins to the beach. Recommended.
