    Great stay here. The people who run it are extremely helpful and lovely. Definitely recommend getting their breakfast for 100 rupees it’s so worth it best value around. In fort kochi so great location and the room was perfectly satisfying with one of the best showers I’ve had in India.

    The rooms and facilities were better than expected, being both clean and comfortable. Our stay at Bastian Homestay was short; however, the host, Mr. Bastian, was incredibly helpful. He drove me to a nearby moped rental shop and helped organize a good deal for a driver to Munnar. His help made the experience much easier than normal. I would recommend Bastian Homestay to anyone looking for a private, clean and affordable room in the Fort Kochi area.

    Bastian and Gini will make sure you have the best time in Kochi and Kerala, so make sure you follow their advices and if interested in anything (shopping, massages, places) go through them first for the best experiences. The rooms have standard qualities for the price you're paying. For a small budget, you'll have a continental or Kerala breakfast. Also, the Homestay is relatively close to some of the most important places in Kochi, with great, cheap restaurants nearby. They are great hosts.

    Excellent communications from Gini as soon as I booked, which was reassuring. Nothing was too much trouble, trips and transport all arranged efficiently. Good location, in the centre of Fort Cochin, close to shops, restaurants and beach.

    The couple who own the place is super friendly and helpful, it’s clean and there’s room service, it’s walking distance to what you need. I had a colony of ants in my bed no matter what I did or if it was cleaned but I don’t know what that was, maybe the heat. That was my only problem. Best shower I’ve used in India. It does get a little hot with just one fan in the room but it’s survivable with water. Not the vibe for a backpacker, I didn’t meet anyone here.

    Good place to stay. Man who runs it seems kind of grumpy but he's actually really nice. Hostel is clean and the best shower I've had since being in India. Protection from mosquitoes available in my room and breakfast was lovely too but finishes serving very early so I missed it 2 days. Didn't find this place very sociable and actually since I have been in India a month now, I found this place the least sociable of everywhere I stayed. Perhaps missing breakfast didn't help!

    The place was ok and the önere were very helpful. The bathroom was clean but the sheets had stains on them, I had to use my travel pillow. It is a decent place but they can definitely improve it.
