I stayed in Costa Gama in later December for 3 nights. The location was great, the room was clean and it was very reasonably priced. I also like that there was a little kitchen, so you could make your own breakfast, tea or coffee, very handy. Benson, was very helpful, friendly and efficient. He was always happy to help. The whole staying was very pleasant, hassle free. Ask him about a local eatery which had the best Dosa. He went out of his way to offer me to stay at his home stay when I tried to figure out what I should do to kill 9 hours before my train departure. I highly recommend the place.

We had a mixed experience. The house was in a very safe neighborhood and was reasonably priced. Benson, our host, was very responsive and easy to reach both by e-mail and cell phone. He also went out of his way to make sure we were able to get from the train station to Costa Gama. As we arrived in the middle of the afternoon, he made arrangements for us to catch a wonderful Kathakali performance. And during our stay, we also enjoyed chatting with Benson about different sights in India to reach. Some points to improve on would be to either improve the means of mosquito prevention or lower expectations, e.g., supply mosquito nets or remove the description of mosquito nets from the hostel description. (Unfortunately an extremely persistent mosquito got into our room and was difficult to deter or combat, despite generous application of deet.). We'd also recommend that the hosts better gauge guests' needs or wants before recommending places to eat or to book tickets. In our experience unfortunately, Talk of the Town was not a very good example of Keralan food and a booking company gave us incorrect information about obtaining train tickets, which caused us to lose several hours in transit and waiting in lines as we sought to get tickets that were ultimately not available. The bathing water also seemed to be hot coming from the tap but cold from the shower--so if there was a way to fix that, it would have been nice. It also would have been nice if free filtered water--rather than bottled water for a fee--were provided for guests.

We have been here several times now, and will return again. Benson and his family are fantastic hosts, and couldn't be kinder and more helpful. Excellent value for money. Great rooms and location. Highly recommended. Kevin Lewis

Good clean homestay with super friendly and helpful owner Benson as well as his family! Every time I would go down to talk to him about something his wife would bring me these super tasty treats (rice and jaggery balls) she prepared for Christmas! Rooms have internet and private bathroom with normal toilet which is great! Also nice small common area with kitchen which is convenient to use. Overall no complaints whatsoever!

We stayed three nights at this guesthouse. It was a lovely treat as it was our first stop in India. The family are all very kind and welcoming, the rooms are full of charming character and the wifi is super fast. It's also only a short 15 minute walk to the main restaurant area. I would recommend this homestay to anyone visiting Cochin!
