If I am back in Cochin, I will be back in Bastian homestay! Such wonderful hosts, very understanding and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable!
The place is fairly clean. Breakfast was excellent.
Noisy neighborhood. There are windows but curtains need to be drawn all the time to prevent neigh ours peeping. Difficult to find for late arrival.
Owners were very friendly, thank you for everythink
Gini and George - the hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Gini's brilliant Kerala breakfasts! Great trip to the backwaters. Clean and spacious room. Locaation.
We only stayed one night but it was lovely. Great hosts in a quiet location. Nice outside area to sit and chill out.
There is a hot water tap in the bathroom,but no hot water to the shower.
Gini and Bastian were so welcoming and attentive as hosts, sorting out airport pick up via email, sharing their own dinner with me after a later than expected arrival back from a day trip, making some soothing ginger tea when my stomach was playing up and generally ensuring that every need and want was met. The room was basic but clean and comfortable with excellent mosquito barriers in the windows. Great warm shower and pleasant communal area to eat the tasty breakfast in (I recommend the scrambled eggs). Good wifi connection. Really good location for exploring Fort Cochin, some highly rated restaurants two minutes away and the seafront a ten minute stroll. Highly recommend!
the staff (perfect with the houseguest), the location (can do all by walk), the cleanliness (very comfortable), the calm (its change from big cities)
it wasn't dark enough (can't have long sleep)
Besides the good conditions of the room and breakfast, the owners are really nice people and give nice recommendations about what to do and see, help hiring bikes, restaurants, etc. This is something that we didn't find so easily in other places we stayed in India even if the people were always nice.
The owners are wonderful - kind, warm and helpful. They really understand what travellers need. The place was spotlessly clean, well maintained with a really good hot shower and fast wifi. Theres a nice terrace area with tasty breakfasts . We never tried the evening meals but I Gini gave me a sample of something she had made for her family and it was out of this world.....! Next time..! Lovely place to stay.
Room on the small side
- The bright new room and bathroom : everything is in very good shape. - The kindness of Ginny and her husband : we were very well welcomed and they cooked kerala pancakes as we were starving... You can be picked up at the airport at very fair rate. They help you with booking backwater trip, booking tickets for the theater... - The central situation : a very nice and little street closed to the main streets but very quiet. - And finally, the daily breakfast with everything you need :-)
Nothing at all
Location is central and everything is within reach.
I have been travelling in India and Nepal for 7 weeks before I made the trip from Goa to Kerala. Again, no plans so I chose Kochi at random. I chose Bastian Homestay on Booking.com due to a combination of price and the the number of good reviews. This is not always an accurate way pick your accomodation but its the only way I know how !!! As it turned out it was the perfect choice. This was my first time in a homestay and it has been a revelation, a good one ! The booking was easy, Bastian was in touch by email very quickly to establish whether I wished to be picked up from Kochi airport on arrival? Yes, however this was by taxi and cost 1000inr, hefty !!! But as it turns out probably fair as the the airport is a long way away from Fort Kochi ( an hour and a half in my case due to traffic). In retrospect the journey could have been made for much less using the bus, but that is my fault for not doing my homework !! The room number 4 is perfect, very clean and well maintained, a/c if paying extra, I wasn't but the ceiling fan turned out to be fine, twin beds, wardrobe, ensuite bathroom, balcony overlooking the small street. Just fine, I was paying 1000inr per night as I was a solo traveller taking up a double room, so this will obviously be less per person if 2 people sharing. Towels, soap, toilet paper provided and sheets. Breakfast not included but provided for 100inr, good quality and choice between Keralan or Western breakfast. Other meals can be ordered in from a local restaurant which the homestay uses, again good quality and quantity. Wifi is free and reliable, log onto "GOAN" network. A homestay is exactly what it says...you are living in familys home !!! Much warmer, intimate and friendlier atmosphere than a hotel.
The couple who run this place are really friendly and approachable. The room was basic but clean and had air con and a fan which kept us cool in very humid location. Breakfast was very reasonable and delicious. They helped arrange tickets for kathakali show and taxi to next destination.
The bed was very firm which seems to be a trend in India but this was particularly hard. Steps were quite slippery in the wet weather and would have liked an option of having breakfast in an indoor space as it was so humid even early in the morning.
Very good service, family were very welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent. Good location, not far from restaurants and attractions. Good value for money. Easily booked tours through Bastian.
Air con room only had hot water when using the tap, not the shower.
Very nice and welcoming couple! Airport transfer and other day trips were arranged easily, even though we decided our plans last minute. The location is great, the A/C was reliable, and it was overall a very comfortable place to stay.
The wifi is very fast! hot water, tidy room, nice AC, really close to the beach and landscapes. Bastian couple lend us their kitchen for cooking, they are really nice people! We enjoy our stay in Bastian homestay, in Kochi!
great locationquiet and handy to all the popular places
loud indian guests but it is india after all
We liked everything here. Some of the notables are: 1. The Bastian family- They really make you feel at home. They are always eager to help and made our stay memorable. 2. The breakfast was always great. 3. Help with backwater tours, dance performances, and motorbike rental were seamless 4.Simple yet very clean rooms with fast wifi 5. Easy walk to the attractions in Fort Kochi
Nothing as everything was perfect!
"Lovely stay with warm host and charming rooms" ME and My partner stayed with bastian home stay for 3 days. We received a very warm welcome from Mr. Bastian and their family. 'Homestay' is an accurate description as it really was home from home. Rooms were immaculate and the beds comfortable. We were concerned about Mosquitos in Cochin but all the windows and ventilation points were mosquito proof. Bastian Home stay will certainly make your trip more wonderful.
we spent two nights at Bastian Home Stay recently while on our weekend trip to Fort Cochin. From the first moment, it was clear that this place is something special. It really felt like I was visiting friends, who are incredibly attentive and concerned about making my stay as excellent as it could be.We stayed in a well maintained and decorated room which had an excellent bathroom. The beds were very comfy and we slept very well. The home cooked Kerala cuisines were delicious, some of the best food we ate in India.I would rate Bastian 100% for a lovely and homely stay.
Great Location. Amidst all the interesting places in Kochi. Clean and tidy rooms. Helpful and welcoming staff members. The hot shower in the room was so refreshing after all the going arounds. Another thing to be mentioned is the availability of two high speed Wi-Fi connection with full range even inside the room. Breakfast was mouthwatering as well !! Would reccomend this Homestay to every single one of my friends travelling to kochi.
Everything like hospitality,care ,food and other facilities. Lovely family and they can make Good friends Very unfortunate for their location.They must provide transport facility on charge basis.
Location is toomuch interior where autorikshaw cant reach to the home.But can manage.
The Bastian Homestay was really a lovely experience. It was really like a home away from home. Room was neat and clean. Air conditioning was excellent. It was a comfortable stay at a reasonable rate. The food they served was also superb. Bastian went out of the way to help us with arranging us various facilities, like, arranging the cab, backwater trip, hotel food and massage, etc. Thanks to him and his family. Our young kids - My daughter(11) and Son(5) enjoyed the company of Gigitta- Georg & Gini's daughter and her friends. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I'll rate Bastian Home Stay 10 points out of 10.
There was nothing in particular which I didn't like or didn't find anything to complain about.
Warm friendship and care. The location is a short distance to the tourist spots here. We also enjoyed the food prepared at Bastian Homestay
