The owner is a lady who only wants you there for the money and doesn't care about your comfort. Only the "assistant" is a nice guy from Nepal. The bedroom and bathroom is everything but clean. Official price is 1.000 RS per night, but even negotiated at 800RS it is not a good deal. Mosquitos are everywhere and there is...

We actually booked a room in the well recommended Oy`s on Burgher Street in Fort Cochin. As we arrived there, they told us that there is no free room available and therefore they brought us to the Oy`s La Home Stay. Keep away from this place. The rooms are very dirty and the walls are covered with mold. The women...

We stayed there after checking 2-3 other homestays and chose Oy's La since they had the spaciest room. Turned out not so nice after all. Rooms are not clean enough, especially bathrooms. Mattress is too thin and firm. When we opened the fridge, the horrible stench spread throughout the room which the owner tried to blame on our shoes. And...

I stayed here with my sister last week and also 3 years a go when I first visited Kerala. The service is impeccable and staff are super friendly and chilled out. There's always music playing and drinks served and its an excellent location to base yourself in prior to exploring the rest of Kerala. The rooms are spacious and clean...

I stayed at Oy's guest house for three nights at the end of January. My first room had bed bugs (!!!) so I had to move to a different one. They have no minimal cleaning standards especially when it concerns the shower and toilets which were quite disgusting. When I changed room I was 'welcomed' by cigarettes butts behind the...

Basic rooms, reasonably clean, friendly owner, fairly cheap. Is right on main road so noisy in front rooms so recommend asking for room at rear of property. Also check if room price includes tax/breakfast. 5 min walk from main strip at fort Cochin.

This place is too cool for school. Perhaps it wakes up after dark - or in the mornings - I don't know; when we visited it was half empty but the service was surly and inattentive; the waiter forgot an order (he was probably too busy watching the soccer); the duty manager spent his time in the street smoking and...

Oy's was amazing, I spent way too much time here hanging out too. The staff as well as the owners are all very friendly and have great service. The atmosphere of the cafe is excellent with the great photography on the walls and decorations. The food is great too! Definite must visit if in Ft. Kochi.

“Best room is top floor, far left, facing the street. Great view, quite spacious, and comfy beds!”

“There are only three rooms - a/c is not necessary and is hard to control - we found it so cold we asked for it to be switched off after the first night, which then reduced the bill from 1800 or 1600 - we were quoted both figures at different times.... down to 1200. There are frequent power cuts but Oys does not have its own generator.”
