Stayed 2 nights in January 2020

Friendly, helpful and awesome introduction to India. ”

Zostel is super close to a lot of local amenities, the boys behind the desk are super kind and can hook you up with advice for travelling around fort kochi and beyond. I left my camera there and they are keeping it safe for me. The rooftop is super beautiful and a great place to chill and have a cold beer and breakfast is pretty good too. Can be a social hostel but also pretty quiet if you’re looking for a relaxed vibe. Felt safe and secure and there’s always someone around to help you out if you need.
