Very Good

Super social hostel right on the cliff face and walkable distance to both major beaches. Lots of food and shopping options around too. They have multiple common areas to meet people and guests socialise well into the night. Cleanliness is not great. Sheets are old and need replacing and the bathrooms are never dry. They need more bathrooms in general too. One shower and one toilet per level is problematic even with the extra couple outside. Overall, really cool hostel and I enjoyed my stay.

The Lost Hostel in Varkala was the perfect start to my journey in travelling. Jitesh, the owner, was not only a excellent host, but he later became a great friend. He was always so attentive to his guests, and so were the staff. There was such a positive energy when I arrived there and I could not recommend this hostel enough. It’s just by the sea and right in the heart of Varkala, next to all the markets, restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. The place is incredible, check it out!
