A two day rest stop over. Power was intermittent. The rooms were filthy. Fecal stains on the sheets Service was non existent Take your own loo paper and soap. Close to the markets and restaurants and bars but not close to the beach. Not a place you want to come home to.

Comfortable bungalow in the green, quiet and silent but right in the middle of Varkala Beach. A plus are the owner and Lal. A little corner of quiet paradise close to the main street. I have booked the bungalow for 4 nights and ended up staying longer.

Stayed here for 3 nights, the room was simple but clean and comfortable with a sea view. There is a nice garden with hammocks, but no restaurant though there are many nearby. Staff were helpful, recommended.

We booked two nights in this hostel with some friends, and had amazing time there. The personnel ordered in advance some cabs from the railway station for us. They are very friendly and reactive to client's demands. It's a beautiful and peaceful place, 1mn far for the sea, with clean rooms and a chill garden with hamacs. Can't wait to...

I booked a bamboo cottage for Saturday. Iwhen we arrived there, as we were indians they were hesitant to give the bamboo cottage for us. Instead they gave the cheapest room there. They expect heavy tips from the tourists. Even though we booked through cleartrip, they didnt give us the cottage. They just blamed cleatrip and left us stranded amid...

All together it was a good one night stay. I booked this place on line for my first night. When I got there it was around 1 pm and I got the room pretty fast, only it wasn't clean. So I reminded myself I'm in India and let it go. I asked for a towel and only after sunset I...

I stayed here for almost a week with my friend. Rooms are basic but you just step outside and see the ocean, what more could you ask for? :) the owners/ guys that work there were soooo helpful and SUPER kind! They really made me feel so welcome and I would probably stay there again because of them. Close to...
