    I stayed at Tantraa for over a week and I absolutely loved it! I stayed in a room right next to the common area separated by a bamboo wall but I didn’t mind at all. You can cook your own food or eat close by. Babu and Shaheer are amazing hosts and will help with everything you need during your stay in Kochi. The location is good - off the main road and very quiet, yet within walking distance to everything in Fort Kochi. I would definitely recommend staying here. It’s a good start in India!

    Homestay was nice, good location close to the Chinese Fishing Nets, Churchs etc. We grabbed an Ola from the bus station to there which was easy and pretty cheap. We stayed in the non A/C room which got very hot so would recommend paying extra for proper A/C. It has a communal kitchen area with fridge etc, you can fill your water up for 10 rupees. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but clean along with the common area also. Good to stay for one night.

    Stayed over NYE and there was a very good atmosphere. The host babu took us all to see the NYE celebrations and was very good at making sure the group stayed together when things became chaotic! Room was basic but good value for the money paid.

    Lovely common area and kitchen, room was simple but clean. Stayed during low season so cant really comment on the communal vibe, as both Tantraa and Kochi were quiet. Good location, within 10 minute walk of beach, Fort Kochi main attractions and multiple restaurants. Would 100% stay again.

    the room was clean and comfortable, although no plug sockets next to the bed. had AC and mosquito net. I didn't really meet anyone there as nobody seemed to be in the communal area when I went. they staff were nice and flexible in letting me check in really early which was fantastic after a long journey there
