Genuine home stay, with a super friendly and informative host. The very beautiful and helpful lady of the house hold was exceptionally courteous and charming and her husband, Bastian a gentleman.
No toilet roll or soap supplied
Everything is just awesome. Both of them are helpful at Bastian, they provided all the information we needed. Rooms were clean, neat and comfortable. They helped us rent the bicycle.
Wow this place was spotless. In fact, we are spending a few more days here. It is the only bathroom so far that we have not seen dirty stains in the corners. It is hard to find so if coming from the airport ask them to arrange a pick up for 1000 rupees. The airport is about 45-1hour away. And maybe you could get it 100 cheaper but it's worth the guy knowing where to drop you off at the end for sure.
Sometimes wifi was a bit slow- although this place had better wifi than any other hotel we stayed in so it may be just something you get used to in India.
Very clean and cosy homestay. The owners have a great heart for hospitality. They made our stay a wonderfull experience. Karl Germany
Owners were wonderful Breakfast yummy and plentiful!!
Shower water did not come out cold, but hot water did come out of tap
Couldn't have been more friendly and helpful delicious Indian breakfasts and continental if you prefer. Great location too.
The couple who own this are charming, friendly and no question is too much trouble. Highly recommended.
George & his wife were very helpful. Kerali breakfast was delicious. Rooms very clean with effective aircon
Gini and George were very helpful with our onward journeys. Helping to book rickshaw and taxi for our early morning departures.
Can't think of anything.
Ginny and her husband are very welcoming and helpful. They recommended good activities and restaurants and helped us arrange our transport.
Bastian and his wife looked after us perfectly, our room was lovely and we were only a 5 minute walk for the main sights of Fort Kochi
Can be a little tricky to find the place. My suggestion is to not down their phone number and get you taxi to call for directions.
Service and help form Gini and George (owners) was excellent. Home cooked breakfasts (Indian and western) were really delicious. Generous helpings all round with fresh fruit, pots of tea and nice coffee. A/c and wifi worked well in our upstairs room in the new building. Room was clean and comfortable. Gini (who made the beautiful food) was very helpful in her suggestion on things to do. George booked a rickshaw for us and assisted us with our very early morning departure. Thank you to both. We highly recommend this home stay and would stay here again. Fort Kochi is more peaceful compared with Ernakulam which is bedlam, like most Indian cities.
Needed somewhere to put our suit cases, but George provided some chairs for us. Thank you George!
Bastian family are exelents you cant stay like your own home, very recomendable to stay in fort cochi, thank you for everything : )
Extremely helpful couple who run the property catering primarily to overseas travellers. Very prompt service Free tea/coffee through the day Worth buying the hearty breakfast (cooked as per your taste) and Kerala style meals from the owners which are cooked for their home respectively. Excellent tips for visiting spots and genuine interest in maximising the enjoyment of your trip and securing a good deal for you on sightseeing. Ability to arrange sightseeing not just in Kochi but elsewhere in Kerala too. Great co travellers from around the world who make the experience of dining in the common area even more pleasurable.
The beds need to be firmer for good back support. The wi-fi connection is tough to catch in the rooms. Don't opt for the budget non air conditioned room unless you pay for air conditioning as it feels pretty hot otherwise.
What a wonderful experience to meet such friendly and helpful hosts! We were feeling really special and really appreciated the suggestions on what attractions to visit, where to eat etc. Everything was perfect – I can recommend this accommodation to everybody!
Bastian and Ginni are really nice and helpful, and the.place.is really nice and clean. Bastian ang Ginni are very familiar with all the options and attractions in the area and can help arranging anything you need.
I spent one night here when I was in Cochin in October, 2014. The rooms are brand new and clean. Bastian and his wife make every effort to make you feel at home and also they are open for any question you might have.
I liked to see the jungle from my balcony. Best of all nice and helpful staff and beautiful shower room with warm and cold water.
They were really friendly and helpful Breakfast was very good
Wifi was sometimes not working but maybe it's a general thing in the city
We spent four nights in Bastian Homestay. It is a great place with a very convenient location in Fort Cochin (quiet, not in a big road). Rooms are quite big and very clean. There is also a terrace where you can have breakfast, relax, etc. The owners are very kind and helped us in everything we needed (tours, taxi, money exchange, etc). They also cook incredible food! It is simply a fantastic homestay.
I cannot say anything that I did not like. It is really a nice place to stay.
Everything.. Honestly did not want to leave! Thanks for a pleasant stay!
The host were such a good help. Good location everything is walking distance. Good value for money.
The man and the wife are very welcoming, helping and hearing to any request, it's very appreciable. Location is very good Quiet place for a good sleep in India Possible to let the lugage from one day to another without issue. Price is good Breakfast is complete with fruits, tea, omelet for 100Rs.
Difficult to get warm water in the shower.
Your hosts at Bastian evidently love hospitality, and do everything possible to welcome you and ensure a chilled stay in Kochi. Rooms are spotless with comfortable firm beds. A breakfast of fresh fruits and either toast and omelette or Kerala veg curry (idles and sambar) were both tasty and only Rs100. You must visit the Kathakali play they suggest, for Rs300 it's incredible value and was the highlight of our stay in the town. Location wise you're 5 mins stroll from your first site (the Basillica) and 15 mins from the Chinese Fishing nets, so pretty ideal, however the home stay is in a small pedestrian area so very quiet at night. Watch out for the crows at breakfast, try not to leave your table unattended with food. The airport pick up and end of stay car to allepey worked well (Rs1000 and Rs1400) for non ac cars. Having arrived with very damp clothes from a previous guest house laundry we were relieved that Bastian managed to clean and dry everything perfectly within 10 hours. We stayed 2 nights however I think 4 would have been better to see Kochi at a chilled relaxed pace.
Watch out for the black crows stealing your breakfast!
