I would highly recommend this lovely homestay. It's in a nice location hidden away and very quiet but close to all sights and ammenities. The owners are so lovely and happy to help whenever you need it. They can organise day trips, massages, train tickets, motorbikes and scooters.. whatever you need. The breakfasts are so delicious and very generous servings...

My partner and I loved this little homestay. Bastain and Gini are the best. After a month of backpacking in India it was so nice to be looked after! They took care of everything. Booked our bus tickets, sorted out tickets for the Kathakali and Indian music and a rickshaw to the bus station. We turned up earlier than expected...

Genie is an excellent host. The rooms are big and clean with great wifi. They serve an amazing breakfast in the morning for only 100 INR. We tried booking again for another two nights but it was fully booked, still went over for the breakfast in the morning! High praise indeed, would recommend.

Centrally located at fort Cochin you will get a warm welcome at this Homestay! The room was clean and functional, the breakfast was included and you could choose if you want continental or Kerala style- we recommend the latter with fresh fruits like banana, pineapple, water melon; warm vegetarian meal; tea or coffee.

Very helpful hosts with good suggestions for restaurants and activities. Set away from the main road, the elegant property has nice clean rooms with lovely hot showers. Delicious Keralan breakfast for those who want it which we could eat on the delightful terrasse. Bastian was a first stay for all of us in a homestay and it couldn't have been...

Clean, basic room. Poor breakfast with a massive fish in a small tank (cruel and smelly). Otherwise the hosts are smiley. Although there's no personal interaction which is in contrast to other places we stayed in India. All in all an average experience.

We loved Bastian Homestay. It's located in a charming little pedestrian ally slightly away from the hustle bustle, so it's peaceful, but still incredibly close (short walking distance) to many of the places to see. The place is clean. What we liked most of all perhaps was the friendly family managing the property who were incredibly helpful. They had suggestions...

Look no further, Bastian Homestay is one of the best places I've stayed in my travels in India. The family absolutely MADE our stay in Cochin. We felt like anything was possible, since they were ready and happy to help us whenever we needed it. The rooms are clean and spacious, the breakfast became something we looked forward to everyday,...
