This place is a hidden gem of calm in kochi within walking distance of all of the major sites. The staff are this hostels biggest asset and make this place what it is, they had a wealth of local knowledge and were able to help us with transport shopping and a minor medical emergency. We stayed in a double room with bathroom for three nights. The room was tidy and spacious with clean linen and a new bed. I saw many single travellers staying there and the place had a good buzz visit here before it is discovered by the LP and ruined.
