I extended my stay
This is a great homestay. The place is clean, walking distance to the sights in Fort Cochin, budget food options, and the local bus to/from the airport. The owners are welcoming and happy to help. The neighbourhood is local, friendly, and safe to walk around day or night. The wifi works, even in the room. There is a nice rooftop to lounging around. This place is a great option.

great location of a friendly homestay
Just spent a week at Elim Homestay. The best thing about your stay here is the great hospitality of the host George. He goes out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. He organised a taxi to pick us up at the airport and allowed us to check in to our rooms as soon as we arrived. He would ask us every day if we needed help or assistance and was always on hand to offer suggestions on how to get the best out of the local area. Thanks George.

Below Average place
The Good: The guy at the desk was pretty helpful and the location is perfect. The room was clean enough but a few stains on the sheets and mosquitoes in the room too. One of the cheaper options. The Bad: no comforter and extremely small sheets to cover you with. Exactly 2 small towels. Would have been nice if there were more smaller towels or hand napkins. No bathrug, no toilet paper. No hot water- we had to inform first after which we got about 10 mins of warm water. The guy said that their breakfast wasn’t good and told us to have it outside. However, in the morning I saw him sitting with some foreigners having breakfast.(I wonder if he told them the same too)

I booked a stay here at short notice as I was traveling into Kochi by train. Bittu was there to welcome me and showed me straight to my room such was great after a 12+ hour train trip! The room was cosy, the bed comfortable, also with a tv, cupboards and attached bathroom. It's a short walk into the main area where you can go to the beach, restaurants or check out the local attractions. There's also a rickshaw stand nearby. They also helped me to organise a backwater trip which was great. Bittu was always available if help or suggestions were required, and he's very enthusiastic about promoting the local area and other places of interest within Kerala. Would love to come back asap!
