The location is perfect. Other than that, it's just another one of those underwhelming Indian hostels. I do not recommend to stay in the 5 bed dorm. It's non AC which is quite unbearable in Varkala from February onwards, and the matress was downright disgusting, smelling so bad from the hundreds of liters of sweat it must have swallowed... 14 bed dorm has AC but is relatively loud at night. Overall the place does not do justice to its name.

I booked standard non ac room, it does not have any ventilation & there is no fan for upper bunk beds. You wont able to sleep at all in varkala humid weather. I paid 1200 bucks for single bed & it was a very bad experience.

This was my first time in varakala and I found this amazing hostel. The place is quite peaceful and the property is clean. I met few amazing people at the hostel, the staff were friendly and they helped me with all the recommendations and stuff and the security is pretty good and it’s just a minute away from the black sand beach. And the hostel had conducted event, where they made us play games by the beach, it was quite fun!. All in all if you are looking for a getaway this is your place.
