Property Description

Zostel Varkala is a mere 15-minute ride from the railway station and sits right by the Black Sand Beach, which is a 3-minute walk from the hostel.

Only 1 hour from Trivandrum and 4 hours from Kochi with Alleppey falling on the way, Varkala is one of the rare beach towns of India, in terms of topography and charm alike. It brings with it a fine platter of beaches along with a lighthouse, a fort, and umpteen roads laced with coconut and palm trees. Surfers and parasailers make its shores an aquatic playground, whereas jolly backpackers and hippies linger over by the cliff, trying scrumptious seafood and shopping dreamcatchers. Sunrises and sunsets bring out the violets and crimsons in otherwise shy skies here, whereas night-time is a treasure trove of constellations. A quintessential trait of this town is to always smell enchanting, which is credited to the many renowned Ayurveda and Yoga centres of the country that find a home here. Varkala is neighboured by short escapes.

Zostel Varkala provides dorm room as well as private room. Free wifi features the whole property. Our friendly staff is always there to help you. For any travel questions, please feel free to let us know. We will give you suggestions accordingly.

    I had a perfect time in the zostel property, the entire experience was very good. We had lot of activities arranged by Visakha & Shailendra who made sure everyone got to know the beauty about the place. The staff was very polite and food was great too.

    Amazing place with good views and peace. Vishnu at reception does an amazing job comforting people. I got a sprain in leg and he got me band aid. Thanks to him for everything. In restaurant, Mannu and Jose are cool 🙂🙂. Very good place to work and chill.

    Large Red Ants roaming around in the room. Changed room also has ants. No hot water bath Rats scurrying around. Manager says don’t be surprised to find a snake as well because we are around nature Staff said we are creating a scene for the complaint we raised Manager said he will refund if we find ants again, we did find it but this time he was not ready to talk and just left the room Pathetic hygiene conditions can’t be equated to a stay around nature
