Very nice, and a very good price”
It's very affordable. My room had a large bed. Not a thick modern mattress, but perfectly comfortable. This is not a place where you should expect a fridge or air-conditioning. It has a ceiling fan, and I found that perfectly satisfactory. Western travellers may be taken about by the toilet arrangements. The toilet is the European "throne", but there's no toilet paper, just a hose for cleaning yourself. I found this effective and comfortable, since the water is always warm. So I'm pointing this out as something easy to adapt to, but I'm aware that some travellers may find it problematic. Beyond that, the host is a fine fellow, and can organise expeditions for you as required. There's a lot to see in the local district. You can also go body-surfing on Varkala Beach, down the steps down the cliff-face a short distance from the Bamboo Village entrance. So, very much recommended by me!
very nice place ”
I'm very happy to stay here. It's beautiful and cozy and the staff is really nice.
It was awesome stay..
Home away from home”
Very nice place with a charming garden and friendly people. Stay here regulary for over 5 years, it gets only better.
We had problems with damp and a leak and had to move after the 2nd night
Opposite beach and sea.. Just walk To beach... Super super
a very good hotel situated in the beautiful cliff of varkala. good staff and for the price room is too good.
Walter from USA, Long time bamboo village guest”
I've stayed at bamboo village 5 or 6 times over past 9 years, and I'm convinced that it's value and location can't be beat on Varkala North Cliff. The staff is great, too. I definitely hope to stay there again.
Close to the beach and restaurants and shops”
Worth money spent, clean, has a cozy little garden with hammocks in the palm shadows to spend the hot afternoon. Sheets are clean. The only shortcoming is that you can hear the neighbors (in bungalow rooms), but it did not bug me.
All well but powercut pblm sucks as there is no power backup in hotel”
Very good view, beautiful property
Great location but tired rooms”
Located right on the cliff front - which is great for a budget accommodation. But rooms aren't very clean (my husband actually had to ask for clean pillowcases!) and everything is incredibly tired. Rooms feel very damp too - it's like you're sleeping on a wet mattress! Also wifi doesn't work in rooms - at the front desk only, and there's no common area to sit and use it. This place needs a refresh! We got a last minute deal and it was half price... even at that price we felt it was too much, we moved somewhere around the corner for the same money and the room was a million times better!
not worth ”
this place is really not worth the money. avoid it Nd find something better. its stuck in 1982 with bad smell.
Bamboo Village is ideally situated to get the most fun from the cliff top walk in Vakala. The accommodation is VERY basic but OK for travelers who are happy to "rough it" a bit on an Indian holiday.
not nearly as nice as it looks in the photos”
I was quite disappointed in this place, I wanted somewhere that was a bit of a treat, if that's what you're after, goes elsewhere. If you just want cheap accommodation - it will do. If you stay in the building, try to stay upstairs as the ground floor rooms stink of damp. I borrowed some cleaning kit and after giving the room and bathroom a bit of a clean, it was a it nicer. There was also an infestation of ants. It's not the best, but it's not the worst.
Love love love this place. ”
Location is perfect, right on the north cliff.
Excellent Place close to the Cliff.”
A hidden gem of a place to stay in Varkala. Aesthetically designed bamboo huts with an excellent staff managing the property. Will definitely recommend it for a stay.
Loved this little comfortable bungalow in the green. Right on the main street close to many restaurants and bars. During night could hear the waves, how fantastic is it? The owner and Lal are incredibly kind and accommodating. Was supposed to stay 4 nights and stayed longer. Highly recommend it to solo travelers, couple and families.
Tranquil place for a bargain price”
The palm trees and hammocks invite you to chill outside your bamboo huts. The place is tranquil and quiet. No road noise, no club nearby. No ac either so it does get a bit hot. Located on the cliff path veryrbing is accessible within 5 minutes, beach, restaurants and shops. The staff is friendly and will help you out when you need it. Very relaxed vibe!
Great location! Stuff is a bit mmm...”
So their location is on the northern cliff which is amazing. But - if your room is in the back or a standard room, you won't non of its beauty... all together was ok for one night. The stuff acts a bit weird and I didn't like it but was ok
