    I was just in Kochi one day and night as a starting point in my travels through Kerala. The hostel had a generally good vibe, with some interesting people staying there as well. The rooms had AC and strong fans which was appreciated. The manager was very helpful as well. There is a very strict rule regarding visitors which was a pain when a friend from another hostel wanted to have a beer with a group at this place, but that is my only complaint.

    Very nice utilization of space . Loved the concept of multiple bathrooms with a mixed 8-bed dorm. Cleanliness could have been better. The AC in the room is switched on only in the evening; its off during the daytime. The upper bunks are very high and the steps of the ladder are largely spaced making it difficult for the upper bunk occupants. Storage compartments are safe. The cafe was closed during my stay

    Fine for one or two nights in Kochi. Dorms were average and comfortable. There's a cafe attached with breakfast and it's in sort of touristy neighborhood with lots of restaurants and shops. The staff was nice enough but there never seemed to be anyone around who could answer questions about simple things like rickshaw prices or booking trains, which wouldve been nice since it was the first place I stayed in India.
