“Stay Away - Najmudeen is a CROOK!”
Reviewed 31 January 2011

Stay away from this place, and beware of Najmudeen the toothless crook.

I emailed New Heaven a few days before I arrived to book a room. He responded and said he would pick me up for free from the bus station. They charged me 1000 R per night for a room WITHOUT SHEETS OR HOT WATER.

When it was time to check out, Najmudeen, his wife, and another man cornered me in my room and threatened to call the police if I did not pay an additional 1000 R for the ride. STAY AWAY!

This place is listed in Lonely Planet under budget accommodations in Varkala Kerala. My friend and I heavily rely on Lonely Planet for most of our budget travels in India and also refer to it for accommodation. Our visit to Kerala was timed at the peak time of New Years which is why for the first time we booked in advance of 2 months!! Being slightly risk averse and not willing to shell out huge sums for last moment accommodation we were also tracking the booking regularly and were assured of even a pick up at Cullambulam( 7 km from Varkala) when we had contacted the resort two hours before reaching.
After a very long bus ride from Kochi when we finally arrived at this place we were shocked to know that there had been no booking and we basically had no where to go.The name of the person with whom we had spoken to since the past two months till two hours back has been advertised on all the walls along with his mobile number but he appeared to be apparently absconding!! To top it all the people present there who were trying to depict that they would accommodate us next door by doing a favor ( after we were asked to pay Rs 2000 for a night) thought this situation was highly amusing and were cracking jokes all the time and making wise cracks ( i guess it had to do with the fact that we were just four girls ). Later on we got to know we were the third case of fake bookings in the day.After a huge fight we finally walked out with no place to go at 8 in the night and all other hotels booked!!

I would really like to black list this place ,kindly book at ur own risk or better still dont book at all...there are tonnes of better places in and around and at better prices.

Stayed December 2010, travelled with friends
