Stayed at Vedanta in a 6 bed dorm towards the end of Jan. Location is awesome, only a five minute walk from the cliff where all the restaurants and beaches are located. One of the staff goes above and beyond the rest to ensure the guests enjoy their stay - he organised night activities and was always up for a chat with everyone. Forgot his name and he's leaving soon, be a big loss to this hostel! Rooms clean, a/c is awesome for the sweaty nights!


Beautiful people and great location so close to the beach. Had a great time meeting very sweet and nice people.

The dorm rooms were amazing with all the facilities provided. I was amazed with kind of service hotel provides. house keeping is really good in performing their duties and the other staff too. The best thing about the staff is they actually make it a point to talk to every guest of theirs. The sight-seeing was good. Many places to explore and total fun loving journey and the most memorable one..

I had a nice stay here, the location is near the beach and restaurants and the large grassed yard has a hammock to relax in. The dorm is quite small, and one of the beds had ants on it from the window seal. Vedanta is a chain of hostels and this hostel wasn't as good as the hostel crowd one I had previously stayed in (maritime in fort cochi), it doesn't include breakfast and is 50 R more a night.

“Budget hotels” - I have always chosen Vedanta Wake up as my hotel for my business trips as it takes 8-10 days & nights per year. They are very low priced compared to other hotels in Varkala with best service. They are great for comfort, cleanliness. The co-operation of the staff to look after your needs is great. They are always at your service. If you get some time form your busy schedule you shouldn't miss the Varkala cliff !!! Will surely recommend for the low budget and best service

“Tasty breakfast,Lovely trip”-- I reached the hotel in the morning. I was escorted to my room by the staff and was immediately served breakfast which was very tasty. The staff was very cordial and they helped me in everything as I was travelling solo for the first time to varkala. The location was superb and had really good beaches specially the varkala beach which was just 5mins away. The hotel has a peaceful lawn where you can spend your evenings. I stayed here for 8 days. Most amazing trip..
