This was the perfect place for our weekend stay. Would highly recommend. Best price in the area, and the owner is extremely welcoming and helpful with anything you want or need. Rooms are split female/male and have AC!

Located at just 400 mts from the helipad Pagan's hostel offers comfy beds, AC room...a wonderful balcony to sit and read in and just watch the world go by. Aki the caretaker was very helpful and also took us on a little tour of nearby places. its a cozy , comfortable place within walking distance of the main cliff market.. Also Aki was kind enough to organise a home cooked meal in traditional Kerala style..loved it!!

The backpackers hostel where I felt like home. The hosts are really warm and kind. They even provide you with food when hungry. Spent half a day there by just having conversation with the hosts. Jewels they are. Highly recommended a stay while your Varkala visit.

I stayed at Pagan’s for a few nights in January 2018, and had a really comfortable and relaxed time in the hostel. It is a really small and cozy property, which gives a really tight knit and friendly atmosphere. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming, and the location is incredible - only 10 minutes by rickshaw from the train station (expect to pay about R.80), and only five minutes walk from the amazing cliffs at Varkala! All in all, an amazing place to stay that I would gladly come back to!

Nice cool ac in the rooms, very helpful staff who speak perfect English. Wifi is 5mb which is ok but struggles when everyone else is around. Very clean rooms and free filtered water is available. The bunks have privacy curtains. Only real downside was the lack of sockets, but one of the staff lent me an extension cable.
