Monday 1st - Sunday 6th May 2018 My girlfriend and I stayed at The Lost Hostel during our time in India. The owner “Jitesh” and his staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived! They advised us on where to go and what to do in the area, and put us in touch with the right people to ensure a great experience was to follow. The hostel itself was immaculately clean with a/c in two dorm rooms as well as the communal living area. With the hostel being 5 minutes walk from Varkala Beach and Varkala’s Beachside Cliff it was ideally located as this is where all of the restaurants, shops and markets are situated. During our stay Jitesh arranged for a local chief to come in and prepare a traditional Indian lunch which was complemenetary as well as booking dinner in a close by

Can’t say enough good things about this place. You are made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The owner and staff are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and just overall good people. The hostel is only a few minutes walk to the cliff and beach. But the best part about this place is the warm and social atmosphere. It’s great for meeting other travelers. One night, 15 of us went out to dinner together, and we had only just met in the last day or two. The owner, Jitesh, arranges nights out as well, or the occasional poker game. Do yourself a favor and get lost here, you’ll be glad you did.

Stayed here from april 1-3. Initially I had a great time because of the people staying there although it was 450 a night for non/ac dorm and no breakfast or towel. But later comparing the other hostels we moved onto we realised we were getting better for 350 a bed. When I wrote a review explaining this on google the owner responded saying there rates were in fact 350 a night which was false since we were charged extra. When we called back to clarify they were unable to explain it and seemed more defensive about their rating than about actual customer satisfaction. I am a little confused about this place and not very sure if Id go back again.

Dear Sneha & Shashank, The Prices of hostels vary according to location/city and both of you guys were aware of it what you are getting with it while you booked with us. Our prices were 450/- while you booked with us and later on and our current prices are 350/- and prices vary according to the month of the year and occupancy. We have neither charged you extra or said anything false. We care more about our customer satisfaction and as you mentioned you were happy when you stayed with us but later on your experience changed when you stayed in other hostel and started comparing facilities and started writing reviews one by one in each platform. We feel very sad that even putting our every effort to make your stay comfortable and memorable you guys are talking about prices (which you choose to happily pay). Please write about your experience in the hostel, talk about our common area, social activities, Staff Behaviour, Beds and cleanliness rather than comparing us to other location hostel prices. Thanks

Good atmosphere, Great location just 2 minutes walk from the beach. The guy at the reception, Raman, was really helpful. I felt really welcome in my first experience in Varkala. My favourite hostel I’ve ever been too. Definitely, a party hostel, events at the hostel get everyone out and social, Had a great Ping Pong Tournament. All facilities are up to a good standard but what really sets this place aside are the people and the unique atmosphere. From when I arrived it felt like home. To put things in perspective Raman went the extra mile to ensure I got where I needed to be. Great value for money. I would definitely stay there again I had a great stay! Thank u 10/10
