Acceptable”

When I arrived, I was told that the room that I had booked was not available, and that I could have a non-AC room for the night, and would need to change rooms on the second day. Highly disappointing and inconvenient. I was refunded the difference of money between an ac room and non-ac room for the one night, but little else was done to apologize or improve the situation. The place itself is old and dirty, the showers are filthy and moldy. I switched to a different hotel after 3 nights, which was around the same price and 100x nicer/cleaner.

although one of the cheapest hostels you can find in kochi it was one of the greatest i ever stayed in. the location was so close to the major sights of kochi as well as to the ferry terminals to the other islands. the staff were so friendly, always answered your questions and gave helpful advice and suggestions. the room itself was clean and even had air conditioning. a simple breakfast was also included and you can do the laundry at their place as they have a machine. way better then do laundry service outside which is much more expensive.

Nice location!just walk for 10min from the ferry station,close to the chinese fishing net. Staffs are very friendly and helpful! When I mentioned about shower pleasure, they came very quickly and fixed it! It was such a relaxing time in Cochi. I wish I will come back soon! フォートコーチンのフェリー乗り場から歩いて10分ほど(トゥクトゥクは30ルピー)、チャイニーズフィッシングネットのすぐ近くです。目の前にレストランもあり。 スタッフは皆とってもフレンドリーで、朝食を食べながらお喋りしたり夕飯に誘ってくれたり。シャワーの水圧が弱いと嘆いていたら、すぐ見に来てくれて、治してくれました。 建物は古く綺麗ではないですが、毎日お掃除も入るしこの値段だと妥当だと思います。朝食はトーストとジャムと紅茶。シンプルだけど十分でした!

エアコンが効いている”

5月中に3泊しました。安宿ではありますが、エアコンが付いているのは大変助かります。朝食がついていますが、正直内容は今ひとつ。キッチンは使っていいみたいでした。実際にインド人の宿泊客から「作ったから一緒にどう?」と誘われました。 洗濯はしてくれますが、干すのは自分でやる必要があります。「今から出かける。」と伝えたら、「こちらでしておく。」と答えたにも関わらず、干してくれていなかったのは残念です。 あと、トイレは汚くないものの、あまり清潔ではないです。ゴキブリがトイレと部屋に出ました。スタッフに訴えると、夜だったにも関わらず、ワザワザ殺虫スプレーを買いにいって退治してくれました。安宿にしてはありえない程の対応で、大変感激しますた。スタッフは最高です。
