Property Description

Once you come in our door, you will actually feel at home where all is included: comfortable bed, towels and linens, daily cleaning service, Wifi, large common areas, hammocks, relaxing area and an amazing garden!

Molly’s Hostel is the ideal place to meet new people, spend some time relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of the cities or just use it as a base for the several water activities that Varkala has to offer. Molly’s Hostel offers spacious, airy and well-lit dorms and privates featuring simple decor and furnishing. We also have a female only dorm for solo female travelers. You can try your hand at surfing, an experience that will get your pulse racing. If you want to take it easier, you can go kayaking, stand up paddling or boating. If sightseeing is what you want to do, rent a scooter for the day, the best way to see Varkala and the surrounding areas.

Nice place. Good rooms with AC and quite welcoming staff. A bit away from the main strip of Varkala but a quiet pretty area and still near to a beach.

Very welcoming hostel and hosts! Situated in South Varkala, you will enjoy a calm area, the cliffs and the sea 5 min away and busy North Varkala is at walking distance. You have very cute coffee places around the hostel as well! Molly is a great host, super helpful and keen to share her experience! Would definitely recommend staying at Molly’s!
