    After a delayed flight my travel buddy and I arrived at 0200, I had emailed ahead to confirm we could check in and the staff member was understanding and quick to show us to the dorm. The bed was so comfy, the dorm was spacious and quiet and there was complimentary tea and coffee in the morning. The hostel is situated in a great location with a vegan cafe almost next door, a kathakali centre a few doors down and an easy walk to the beach. I only stayed one night but I would definitely go back!

    Great little hostel, friendly team working there, dorm rooms laid out nicely (not cramped at all) and good spots to chill out under a fan when Kochi gets a little too hot! A shame the cafe was not open but heard great things! Highly recommend

    It's a great place to stay for backpackers. Rooms and the bathroom are pretty clean and it offers good vibes. I had good conversation with other travellers as well as Girish, who manages the place. Strongly recommend, particularly for solo travelers.
