We stayed in Costa Gama Homestay for two nights. The place was really clean and tidy. Check-In was easy, and we could also check in in the morning. The homestay just have 5 rooms, but therefor a small kitchen and a rooftop terrace. The family who runs the homestay completes the feeling of a home:)

I stayed here for one night before flying back to Mumbai. I had the single room in the back and for what I paid it was excellent value. It was simple (no hot water, only a ceiling fan), but comfortable.

As many have said before, the hospitality of the owners is what makes this place stand out. If you need anything, just ask Benson - he is well connected! He helped us hire a scooter, find a homestay in Munnar and even book our train from Bangalore to Hampi, all through friends of his. The rooms are a good standard... More

First of all, yes it's quite cheap. I paid only 600 rupees per night, which is really not much. But then again, the place itself is really nothing special. The room was small, but cleanish; the walls were grubby and the bathroom not what you would call spotless. It could've used a proper cleaning, which it probably hasn't had in... More

What a fantastic family. We had a wonderful opportunity to see fireworks on the roof and a musical fiesta afterwards with devilishly good sweet indian treats. The location is perfect - no too close to the tourist spots to get trapped by bad food and high prices, but conveniently near enough everything in Fort Kochi and Mattancherry to walk everywhere....
