Vedanta, varkala offers best service than any other hotel at varkala. Especially the cleanness of the rooms and hotel facilities impressed me. It is also very close to the cliff. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast could'nt have been better thanks to the hotel manager who managed to provide us south indian breakfast for all three days we stayed and the menu was more than ample. The whole stay was delightful. I would recommended the hotel to anyone, first time visitors and returning tourist. I can't wait to return!

This hostel exceeded my expectations in every way. I was only there for two nights with a friend visiting friends in town and had an absolute blast. Staff and owner are so great. Everyone is so welcoming, fun and just a fantastic atmosphere and great people. I will be staying here again! Called a hostel but in reality a hotel! Lovely friendly staff that always remember your name and are very welcoming. Staff happy to look after luggage whilst you head out of town on trips and assist with booking transport to the airport. Delicious breakfast .Lovely clean sheets and towels. Great location.

Room Tip: corner suites are large and sunny

Great place to stay in Varkala, only a few minutes walk to the cliffs & the beach. The hostel itself is very homey & the staff are very accommodating (The cooking course in town was not been run due to low season so the Hotel Manager run a cooking class for us).

Been travelling for 4 months and this is one of the best we've stayed in.

Good common area with flat screen TV and good wifi. Beds are comfortable and AC works perfectly unlike in many other places we've been to.

Breakfast is fairly priced and the staff are very helpful - one took me to an ATM which is a fair distance away on the back of his bike free of charge.

Would definitely recommend!

This place became like a second home to me during my stay in Varkala. I was supposed to stay 2 nights and left after 7! The atmosphere in the hostel is very positive, the staff is accommodating and super nice, they go out of their way to make you feel at home. There are also huts and double rooms available for those who wish to have more privacy, bit still wants to share the great vibe of the hostel. The cliffs and the strip is maximum 5 minutes walk away, so the location is excellent and it's also one of the cheapest places around, unless you are not interested in cleanliness and the high standards that the Vedanta offers. I would highly recommend this place to anyone (maybe not if you have young children) and will most definitely return here on my next visit to Varkala!
