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

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
