This place made my entire trip... Getting to know Benson and his family was such a treat. We talked extensively on how keeping things small allows for a much more personal experience. These guys do a great job making it feel like home (if you so choose to have that experience). - Weston

Costa Gama is a wonderful place to stay. Benson, Shiny and Denver welcomed us into their home and made us feel like we were staying with old friends. The room was very clean and comfortable with a beautiful traditional door that had a snake shaped lock to guard us! On arrival Shiny gave us tea and lots of helpful information...

Benson and Shali were friendly hosts and very helpful, aiding us in changing money, organising transport and organising a great backwater trip for us to go on. Room was simple and clean and facilities to make tea/ keep things in the fridge was good. Also handy location for walking to places in Fort Kochi.

My friend and I decided to stay at Costa Gama due to our friend's recommendation. And now I am happy to recommend it further. Located in the best part of Kochi, Fort Kochin, it is close to main attractions. The room was very comfortable and affordable. But the best value of Costa Gama is the owners - very friendly and...

We stayed in Costa Gama Homestay for two nights. The place was really clean and tidy. Check-In was easy, and we could also check in in the morning. The homestay just have 5 rooms, but therefor a small kitchen and a rooftop terrace. The family who runs the homestay completes the feeling of a home:)
