    Lovely staff, next to the backwaters, beautiful atmosphere and reasonable price i got my stay for 270 INR. Very relaxing place to calm down and spend some days away from all the jargon. Definitely visiting again

    Sanora homestay is very nice and good value for money. At first, I was a bit skeptical because the toilets are outside but it turned out to not be a problem. Everything was very clean which I particularly liked (because I've had one bad hostel experience in India); the main temple is in walking distance; eating places are also around.

    I arrived quite late, and my cabbie was uncertain about the location. Being tired didn’t help my attitude, so I was initially not favorably impressed. BUT after a decent sleep-in, learning more, especially from hostelmate Leo, especially figuring out how to recharge my electrics and ( perhaps this is most important) unexpectedly attending a Hindu ceremony that willingly accepted/blessed me/gave me fresh sala, my attitude changed. It is warm regardless of the fan—ac would help—it was good. My

    Good things: Good location Facility is clean And there is open space as well What could have been better: Toilets are very small. Beds are bit small too. Facilities could have been better for amount being charged.

    Nice clean hostel, incredibly helpful staff, run by a very nice and caring man. The hostel itself is not well marked, so can be hard to find the first time. Might be good to call ahead for directions for your taxi/auto driver. Not much of an atmosphere, more just a place to sleep and keep your things, very quiet. Lastly, the toilets/showers are kept very clean, but are in a separate building outside. Still, would stay here again! VERY safe, comfortable, and clean.

    Very Good

    I stayed here for two days in dorm, the following points about my reviews are, 1. Cleanliness in dorm is good. 2. There's no air-conditioning system. You need additional fans. 3. Toilet for dorm are located in outside, so every time we have to go outside only :( 4. Location of the house is in main area. Connectivity is very easy. 5. Friendly staff. Overall, if you have budget conscious, you can book this house.

    The four bed bunk room was like an oven, even with fan on. It's very quiet, not a place to socialise and meet other travellers. Location a little out of the way although not much happening in central Trivandrum anyway. Outdoor toilets/shower bit of a nuisance. Owner was very nice when I checked out earlier than had booked. Place is clean and quiet.

    The place is clean. It's on a main road which means it's noisy and one of the rooms has 2 bunk beds. This room had no air circulation.. So the fan kept recycling hot air. It was painful trying to sleep... In the end I have up and decided I wasnt going to sleep in that sort of heat. The roulette and showers are outside.. But are really clean. I wouldn't stay there again unfortunately.
