Room was clean and beds were comfy, communal area was big and good for its purpose especially during the rains.


Clean hostel near the ferry terminal. The location can't be beat. The staff was helpful in booking the backwater trip, but they were a bit pushy when it came to eating at the restaurant. No free breakfast, and the food was mediocre and slightly overpriced.


Vedanta is a lovely spot in Fort Kochi that's clean & very decently priced. The staff are very helpful & will arrange anything for you during your stay, including backwater tours, cooking classes, Ayurvedic massages, tickets Kathakali dance performances, as well as help you with travel arrangements, like bus tickets and taxis. This place also has a mini restaurant, so you can order breakfast or lunch. The rooms have excellent AC as well, and the temperature can be adjusted in each room.


Good hostel, I stayed in a private and it had AC


Thanks for the great stay. Only potential improvements: water pressure really low.

We had a nice stay. The staff, if asked, were helpfull, especially the young one. The wifi quality wasnt quite pleasant but thats not a big deal.


It was a solid hostel. No complaints except the lack of common space.


For a double private room we paid wayyyy too much and the bathroom was horrible we could have stayed in a hotel for that money
