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.
Good location, good free wifi, clean tidy room, excellent bed mattress, hot water, affordable on-premises restaurant, helpful and pleasant staff. I was very happy to have stayed with OM.
Spacious and breezy common areas. An excellent location close to the beach, transport, and a short walk to all the sites including Jaffa. The free wifi was quite good in my room (and from the room's deck) but not accessible from all the common areas. The private shower rooms were especially clean and spacious with ample hot water and quite a treat. A very good place to stay in TA.
Cheers Hostel is exceptional for its good location (right in the centre, easy to get to via public transit), its very friendly and helpful staff, the generous and healthy Turkish breakfast they provide, the free wifi that works well, and their fun top-floor pub with a spectacular view of Hagia Sophia. The only problems might be that the bathrooms are a little cramped and aged and the pub might be a little noisy (although they seem to shut the music down well before midnight),
My room was on the small side - but - everything else about Mango Rooms is fantastic. An atmospheric location, excellent free wifi, a kind, cheery, and helpful proprietor (he went out of his way to help me), a well appointed and super-clean room, and very good building security including a solid room safe. Its right in the centre of the old city and very quiet. However, if you have a lot of luggage - this is not the place for you since you are a little distant from the city gates.
