“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

I stumbled accross Sunshine Home after an early bus arrival, an after reading the Abc's of happiness on the front wall - new it would be perfect!
The host was very welcoming and friendly and have enjoyed many chats over cups of tea in the morning. He even took me to an amazing local joint for breakfast - amazing traditional Indian food!
The rooms are cheap, clean, beds soft, and the whole place just has an amazing energy that makes you want to stay. You can even use the kitchen to create your own delights.
Great location and very central to everything you need - ferry, bus, fish market, restaurants. Too easy!!

Stayed November 2013, travelled solo

Every traveler should stay here. for one you cannot beat the prices, the chill vibe, the location in Fort Cochin and the hosts. Extremely open and helpful, the hosts see you as more than a customer and go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. Furthermore, you don't feel like you're being sold something constantly either even though they do have tour options here.

also a great way to meet other travelers!

Very simple non a/c double room with own bathroom for 500 rs per night without breakfast. The owner was very friendly and helpful. However, a bit more cleanliness in the bathroom and love too detail (no shelves etc) in the room would've been nice. Still - if you're looking for a simple budget accomodation in a central location - this is ok.

I visited here on a friend's recommendation but was so disappointed. When I entered the room, there were quite a lot of hair on the floor here and there which was obviously not mine. It just gave an impression the room was not cleaned and ready properly. The bathroom gave off stale smell to the small room. No amenities were given but it can be understandable if it was the policy. The rate was reasonable but not willing to stay again here.

Stayed at Sunshine for a couple of nights in February 2012.
Pros: Very clean and spacious room and bathroom. Incredibly nice and helpful staff who took us across town to find a tailor for the sari blouses we had just purchased.
Cons: no hot water (it didn't matter too much though given the climate) and no musquito net (-> we had to keep the windows closed at night -> we didn't get much sleep).
