Amazing place to stay! We stayed here for almost a week during christmas time and it was such a vibrant place to be! Raman, Chris and everyone else had an open minded, friendly, easy-going vibe. Connected a lot with them :) the room was just amazing, with views of the sea and palm trees. You can use the kitchen, the common area is super neat and cozy, internet was fast. Laundry is also fast and inexpensive. All the lovely people, do stay at the Lost!

I had an incredible stay at the Lost hostel which made my travel journey in Kerala one of the best experiences I've ever had. I received a warm welcome from the moment I reached till I left. The staff was very respectful and kind they will also make sure you are enjoying your stay and would guide you perfectly to discover the area around. The hostel is already in a perfect location on the cliff from where you can see the beach and have great coffee shops, restaurants, and many more things just within walking distance. I'd highly recommend this place as you will notice from the moment you reach that the vibe is really outstanding and the food offered is so delicious the place is so neat and relaxing. I was super comfortable that I really wanted to stay longer if I only could but I'd definitely return back again if I get the chance to.

It was extremely inside. I had 2 heavy luggages top of it and I was very very sick. One of the staffs helped me with my luggage. It's a good place for budget traveler. Staffs are quite helpful. Thanks a lot for that. As I was very sick I really needed extra attention.

Decent place to stay. The rooms are clean, though our windows were unable to be closed so there was only a flimsy net to halt mosquitoes from entering our room. Overall the place is very basic with no bells and whistles and definitely seems more vibrant in the pictures. This average review is warranted by the cost of the hostel, definitely not worth every penny, though we didn't mind our stay here.
