Oy's is a very cool cafe which has three rooms upstairs plus two other hotels around fort Kochi. We walked in off the street and managed to get a room which had two large beds (easily fit two people). We paid 2000 rupies a night (including air con), also including 400 for a fifth person who slept on the floor....

I spent most of my time in Oys during my stay in Fort Cochin. The food is great, the atmosphere is chilled and fun and more importantly it is run by two brothers who are super friendly and go out of their way to ensure all their guests have a great time, whether you're staying or just visiting for a...

I love oys cafe for so many reasons...the amazing italian coffees, the fresh food, the comfortable rooms, and most importantly the hospitality. The rooms are clean and reasonably priced between 600-800 rupees which is the best value for money that I found in Fort Kochi. The cafe is a bamboo style ambience with cushions and nice seating . there is...

Did not stay in Oys as such. Stepped in for tea and snacks. The ambience is great. Have a good living room - where you can sip tea and chillax with a novel. Lot of eat out options available in as well as around. Pretty close to the beach and Fort kochi action.

We stayed in Oy's home stay (above Oy's cafe) for six nights. Taj home stay had taken our reservation, but was not even open anymore. After arrival they told us some story about maintenance work that needs to be done and took us to Oy's home stay. We were there during off season. The service was just not existing since...

Had a wonderful stay at Oy's homestay around New Year's. The rooms were spacious and affordable, even while we were there during peak holiday season. The staff was really kind and welcoming, and the downstairs restaurant was a great place to hang out and get breakfast (also the milkshakes are delicious!). One memory from our stay that really sums up...

Oy's is located just across the road from Kachi's Art Cafe. It's a relaxing place and even has a library! Laid back and perhaps not as attentive as Kachi's it's definitely worth a visit.

Wow, what a cool and chilled out place. Low seating with pillows so that you can kick back and drape yourself into a slumber. Really friendly staff. Food and drink prices were low. Fresh mint lime juice and ginger and lime juice were incredibly refreshing, and the cold coffee, the best I have ever had - runny enough to be...

We ended our five weeks in India at Oy's in Kochi. We really enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse, our room (a twin) was huge, with a sofa and TV! The bathroom was also large and clean. I think the rooms are usually around 800 rupees but we paid 600 (they were initially going to put us up in a...

“Best room is top floor, far left, facing the street. Great view, quite spacious, and comfy beds!”

“There are only three rooms - a/c is not necessary and is hard to control - we found it so cold we asked for it to be switched off after the first night, which then reduced the bill from 1800 or 1600 - we were quoted both figures at different times.... down to 1200. There are frequent power cuts but Oys does not have its own generator.”
