Great location in Fort Kochi. Clean and comfortable dorms. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good place to meet fellow travelers.

May have been my best hostel experience in India. Perfect location in Fort Kochi, staff that went as far as to ensure the safety and comfort of a friend of mine who needed to be taken to the hospital, and wonderful people to meet and share the space with. Absolutely a big recommendation of mine if you're headed towards Cochin!

The hotel charges quite a high price for a six bed dorm and you can easily get a single room in the area for half that price. The common area is depressing, internet works horribly bad, they charge you a lot and don't even include breakfast. And the worse, I booked a tour with them and they also booked it for a friend in a different hotel. The morning we had to be picket up, the receptionist told me they couldn't pick up my friend. They made me waste the entire day and didn't even apologize.

Perfect location. There's a good atmosphere around the place, nice lounge with comfortable seating and wifi. Rooms are functional, with AC and bunk beds.

I had a good stay at Vedanta Kochi. The hostel is right near the Chinese fishing nets and fish markets. It was clean and secure, with in room lockers. Staff members were friendly and helpful. There were no self catering facilities, which would have been nice, but they are rare in India.

For what Kochi has to offer, this is a good hostel for those interested in meeting others while in Kerala. The staff will answer your questions quickly and they are willing to guide you through your staff in Kochi if you show the interest. The common space was rather small and the bathrooms got dirty pretty quickly. If you're staying in a dorm room rest easy knowing that every bed has a power outlet (which is a magical thing in India). Overall I enjoyed my stay here.

I liked the hostel quite a bit. Its easy to locate and the staff are extremely friendly and the whole place has a cosy, lived-in feel. The bathrooms are small but really clean, and so are the rooms.great

The walls of the small room are very spotty, dirty. The bathroom tiles are poorly constructed and the look of the whole bathroom is very miserable.

welcome in this great guesthouse conveniently located in Fort Kochi, near the Chinese nets and a little back from the street which makes it a quiet and peaceful place away from the horns. The staff is always ready to help and show you around.

Enjoyed my stay. Clean and comfortable place, all staff were very helpful. The food selection wasn't great but there's a nice restaurant opposite. A hot shower in the dorms would have been nice too!

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