Not quite as good as the other Vedanta places because it doesn't have a garden, but it's well located and satisfactory otherwise.


An excellent traveller's hostel. All the basics well executed. Great location right between the ferry jetty and downtown Fort Kochi - a short walk to everything. Good free wifi in the common room. Clean. Very helpful and friendly staff. I had a similar positive experience at Vedanta's Varkala hostel. Both recommended.


booked a female dorm. didnt have one - so i had to stay in a mixed one... but i got free breakfast for it!


A two minute walk from the last stop of the bus that goes to Fort Cochin. Clean room and nice bathroom. They provide towels. Good value.


not as good as the vedanta hostel in alleppy but good value for money all the same. atmosphere wasn't great but i guess that depends on the crowd in the hostel at the time- it does have a common area so with the right crowd it probably could be really good. unlike the other vedanta hostel's it does not have a good outdoor area to sit in which has made me mark it down also


Good and clean. Lights and plugs at each bed is great. Brilliant location and was really good to meet other people.


I stayed in Vendanta in Kovalam and one guy I met stayed in the Vendantas in Alleppy and Varkala and they were all great! This one, however, is not as gret as the other ones!: + clean rooms and good location - the dorms are always open and accessible for anyone - the people from the staff are either confused or just not very nice. They tried to trick me telling me that my 10% deposit went to hostelworld, then they did not want to give me a receipt, saying, I would receive one from hostelworld.

Stayed here a few days in December. Staff seemed a bit baffled and clueless about the hostelworld booking system and struggled to work out the balance between dollars and rupees which took ages to resolve. Internet was slow and the place really could do with a bar and some tables out front as the common room is just a few lumpy sofas. That said the dorms are clean with good AC and bathrooms decent. Well located for anywhere in Kochi and easy to meet and interact with other people there.


Great hostel. Clean, toilet was nice and safe. Location was smack in the middle of cochin and a couple of minutes away by foot to the chinese fishing net. Hotel staff also helped in booking a tour outside cochin for the day at a reasonable price with an excellent driver. Would definitely stay again if i'm returning to cochin.

A good hostel in an excellent location in Fort Kochi. Staff are eager to please though they don't seem to b very knowledgeable about things. Nice, clean dorm.


Great location by the Fort Kochi Beach Front, very helpful staff, so recommended! And it's a good price for what you get.
