I stayed in this homestay for 1 night in Feb 2014. The place is located in a narrow lane after YMCA in Allepey town. The place is very narrow and hardly enough to fit a taxi. During check-in our taxi driver somehow managed to get into the lane as we had luggage, but later in the evening, he dropped us at the starting of the lane and asked us to walk.
As soon as we checked in, the owner Uma promptly gave us the WiFi password for my smartphone and bombarded with all the required info like restaurants, places to visit etc. We booked an AC room due to fear of mosquitoes but we later realized it was wise decision because of the weather which was very humid. so, we left the AC on and went for dinner hoping the room would be cooled when we returned. But, it was not the case.
The mattress were a bit hard, but for the price we were paying it was okay. But, the couple who stayed on top were very noisy in the night as it was a wooden flooring. we ourself found the room lacking privacy and the bathroom looked like a makeshift attachment. No problems with hot water as they mentioned that they would be providing hot water in a bucket and they promptly provided with the required number at the time we requested for.
Overall a good homestay if you are staying for a longer period, else it is better to book an hotel instead.
