    Great little hostel with free breakkie. Good location just off the waterfront and near to shops, restaurants and a fair amount of the cathedrals/museums etc. Sandhosh is also an exceptional host and helped us with all of our needs inc bike rental, cinema tickets, backwater tour and making sure there were always eggs for breakfast! Great few days. Stayed in double private - good ac and space.

    Jenny was lovely, helpful and created a super relaxed vibe at the hostel. The location was perfect, walking distance to everywhere. Surrounded by nice places for good food and coffee. The hostel had a good chill out area down stairs and offers breakfast for free. Very relaxed vibe, recommend!

    Great place, very kind and helpful staff (only one guy when I was there plus the woman who makes breakfast), perfect location (a short walk from the ferry, very close to Fort Kochi Beach, etc.). I went in the off-season so it was not at all crowded, I had max. three people in my room. Breakfast is complimentary (simple South Indian food plus bread). Clean place and there are some books and stuff, a fully-equipped kitchen, plus common areas on the ground floor and in the attic
