Property Description

Allleppey, gateway to the most beautiful backwaters in the world is also referred as the 'Venice of the East'. After our first hostel in Goa being featured on Huffington Post, MTV Travel UK, as one of the best backpacking hostels in India, we wanted to make sure, we bring something more for the backpackers and travellers community.

The Bucket List Alleppey, is located few metres away from the famous Punnamada backwaters and comes with a garden, mini library, working space for digital nomads and a unique creative space with auditorium for events. It's constructed in such a way to reflect the traditional Kerala architecture and the wood carvings as done in the palaces/castles/mansion of Kerala history. 'Aramana' in local language means a heritage royal palace where everyone lives together happily. We wanted to bring the local authentic feel of Kerala homes as you stay along with us.

Start your day with a yoga class or with a game of table tennis. If not both, walk along the backwaters enjoying the view and then come back for some healthy Kerala breakfast. Smile and make some friends from around the world. Set to explore Alleppey by your own or we have packaged tours designed specially for you. We have tied up with some of the best houseboat tours of all budget and for more info, kindly ask us in the reception. We also have games night, walking tours, food tours, houseboat parties, open mic sessions, trips to Munnar, workshops, etc during the season.

The private rooms are a piece of luxury and comfort and designed in mind to replicate the Kerala architecture. Usually we accommodate only 2 guests per room and for extra person,(extra charges applicable) please call us. We also have Non AC Mixed Dorms, AC Mixed Dorm and a Female Non AC Dorm designed to cater to all the backpackers and travellers. Interested in hosting an event with us, DM us and we would love that. Make sure to add The Bucket List Alleppey on your bucket list and get ready to turn your 'Moments into Memories'.

    Super nice Hostel right next to the beautiful backwaters. The place and staff are super cool and helpful. We stayed only one night as a pass through stop, but the peaceful and open atmosphere really made us wanting to come back again for a longer stay. The only disadvantage is the remoteness from the town, but with the help of the staff we easily got a Rickshaw to where we needed to go early in the morning, so it was no problem for us. All over a highly recommended place to stay!

    Loved this hostel! Rahul is super helpful and gave us lots of tips for the area. Even though it wasn’t very busy during our stay, the atmosphere was still great and there’s a nice outside area to chill with everyone. The food is also authentic and delicious. It’s a little further from the main area but on the backwaters so we loved the location. Would definitely recommend for a comfy stay in Alleppey!

    The perfect jump off spot for your backwater cruise. Tucked in an actual backwater neighborhood, you feel right at home with smiling faces everywhere. You can rent bikes or scooters at affordable rates for your trips into town or the beach. The A/C room is frosty and recommended (no hot water tho). The staff is perhaps the best part...Rahul is the man...always willing to help and can't forget about the cutest yogini volunteer I ever did meet 😉

    Booked and checked-in the property with no issues. Location is not too central. Our host Rahul was very welcoming and made me feel home. Spent 6-day quarantine at the hostel due to COVID19 restrictions, and was only allowed to leave after tested Negative. Throughout this time, Rahul was the best host possible, helping us with food, supplies and medical care. I'm glad I passed this crazy time at The Bucket List and not elsewhere. Hopefully I'll come back in better times. Most recommended!

    Great hostel, if a little far from the town centre. Staff were very helpful and you can organise your backwater trip for a very good price here. They also have a puppy, we spend two fun nights here

    A lovely guesthouse with basic dorms located by the backwaters, away from the city. Breakfast and dinner are available and are simple but good. The guy running it was super friendly. I did the canoe trip and it was beautiful but a bit long. Lots of nice places to sit and there’s even a whole studio at the top for yoga.

    Very Good

    The dorms are extremely stuffy, no natural ventilation nor fly screens. We were kept up until midnight due to inconsiderate people playing music on the seats outside of the dorm rooms, there doesn’t seem to be any restriction or consideration for others. We moved to the private rooms which were extremely nice.
