Costa Gama is a wonderful place to stay. Benson, Shiny and Denver welcomed us into their home and made us feel like we were staying with old friends. The room was very clean and comfortable with a beautiful traditional door that had a snake shaped lock to guard us! On arrival Shiny gave us tea and lots of helpful information...

Benson and his family are wonderful hosts and make their place as friendly and welcoming as you would expect it at your own home.

Benson and Shali were friendly hosts and very helpful, aiding us in changing money, organising transport and organising a great backwater trip for us to go on. Room was simple and clean and facilities to make tea/ keep things in the fridge was good. Also handy location for walking to places in Fort Kochi.

Located in the best part of Kochi, Fort Kochin, it is close to main attractions. The room was very comfortable and affordable. But the best value of Costa Gama is the owners - very friendly and...

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.
