We did not see one adult in the staff during our three-night stay. The kids in the staff were however quite accommodating and helpful, although they should rather have been enjoying the winter holidays elsewhere, instead of having to run a bed and breakfast. The room was very shabby. Severe moisture damages on the walls, to the extent that the...

This is a decent budget hotel, breakfast was included, eggs on toast was edible, good cup of tea, no cleaner came to the room throughout 6 nights we were there. Manager Deepak was friendly and helped us sort a few things out. There was a burglary in the night whilst we were there, don't put belongings on the tables under...

As the title says, the hostel offers an ok value for the price, mainly since latter is pretty low. It seemed, they didn't know at what rate they had offered the rooms on hostelworld. We found that different booking sites stated different rates and the guy working there asked us a couple times about the price on our booking confirmation....

A wonderful stay here. Stayed for 5 days and could stay longer! You feel right at home. Beautiful place to stay, set back a bit from the beach making it a relaxing place. You feel so welcome and if you need anything, nothing is too much for them. Great price as well. Would deff recommend to anyone.

Arriving well after 1am, the manager, Deepak was on hand to receive and show us our rooms. Spacious, clean and colourfully furnished - exactly what was required after a long day of travelling from the north. After breakfast later that morning, his assistant, Sundays(sp?) escorted us to the beach, which is in easy proximity. In retrospect, being slightly away from...

My friend Paul and I stayed here for a few nights and Deepak and his assistant (Sandase?) were both extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel has everything you need - including some nice hammocks to swing on! It is a short walk to the cliff where all the shops and restaurants are located (5 minutes). They will even walk you...

We intended to stay a couple days and ended up spending 2 weeks here. Deepak, our host was very accommodating and friendly. He was able to suggest many things to do in the area and was always very pleasant. The hotel was clean and safe and just a short 5 minute walk to the cliff. The room was quiet and...

Our stay at this hotel was extremely pleasant and this is thanks to the superb staff who are very welcoming and attentive. The hotel is a short walk from the cliff but the staff made sure they walked us to the beach so we knew exactly where it is. They also make a lovely breakfast. The room was clean and...

Skylark is not on the cliff, ok, but it's only a few minutes to walk to the beach. The beds are sooo comfy and Deepak, the manager, definitly makes it a perfect place to stay. Was planning on 2 nights, ended up spending 4! Very good adress in Varkala.

“If you're looking for good wi-fi connection, ask to be placed in the rooms by the upstairs veranda. This also means you will have more street activity, fyi - although it isn't especially busy.”
