    A really welcoming place ”
    Everything was easy and hospitable. I had a lovely room at the front of the house and despite the chaos of Cochin's New Year Carnival and Joseph's family all visiting and he and Jennifer opening three really nice new rooms upstairs at the same time, they were always ready to help and give advice on where to find things. They couldn't have been better hosts. The kitchen with dining area is also a great bonus.

    The Pod Cochin has the warmest and most helpful owners you could wish for. Joseph and his family are a delight. Even during the chaos of Cochin New Year's Carnival and the fascinating Bienniale, with Joseph's family visiting and their three lovely new rooms opening upstairs, he was offering to take me to a local clinic to get some medicine I'd forgotten and called local hospitals to see if they had it. Everything's a reasonably short walk away and there are hordes of tuk tuks if you don't feel like walking. I've extended my stay and would happily stay much longer. Fort Cochin is definitely growing on me!

    Good location among local lifestyles, 5-8 mins walk to city center. Simple room, fast WiFi. You need to walk up to the second floor above the host family floor. The family were friendly. We arrived after midnight and the host waiting for us. There were some under construction in house during the day time and sometime around the area when we stay there. Night time mostly very quiet.

    Clean and friendly homestay in good location”
    I stayed here for two nights, one night with a group of friends and the other on my own. The owners were very helpful in making sure I didn’t have to switch rooms (separate bookings for the two nights) and getting me a taxi (female driver!) to the airport early in the morning. The rooms were clean, and it was perfect for a group of six people. It’s not at the very centre of Fort Kochi, but it’s a short walk there and does mean it’s quiet at night. Highly recommended!!

The room is big and light and airy, the hosts are very kind and helpful, there is s kitchenette to prepare breakfast and a dining area- also all light and bright. Very comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean. Outstanding value for money. Would definitely stay here again!

    you have the use of a kitchen with a table to sit at fridge balcony to watch the world go by. The most important for me was how welcomed we were. Joseph is very helpful where to go and what to do. We went on a trip to Munnar on a motorbike that evening Joseph kindly called just to make sure we got there ok, it showed that he actually cared which I must say meant a lot to us. The personal touch you dont get at any hotel. I would recommend this place 100%. Thank you again for making our stay so amazing Kind regards Nige and Greg

    We are happy to stay at Joseph& his family 's home. The room is the cleanest we had stayed in our 1 month's trip in India . It's spotless. The location is also really good, it's in the heart of fort kochi . You can easily explore the area around by walk . Joseph and his family is also really kind in helping us for enquiry about the backwater houseboat . We would definitely give them 10 stars for our stay .

    My boyfriend and I stayed in an air conditioned room, which was super clean and comfortable. The place is well located - close to the coast, the theatre and plenty of restaurants. The staff are the real highlight - Joseph and Jennifer are welcoming, friendly and full of helpful information. I also recommend taking a trip in a private car with Basil around the tea plantations of Munnar if you have time to explore more of Kerala - Joseph can arrange this for you. Overall, a wonderful stay.

    An amazing start to my Indian experience”
    The cleanliness, the hot water and best of all the host Joseph.
    From my arrival in Fort Kochi Joseph the owner of this gem of a homestay was an amazing and generous host. He went out of his way to help me see the best of the city, enjoy delicious food and work out how to set up my Indian phone number. His mother cooked me some amazing breakfasts and having a kitchen to use was perfect when I couldn't be bothered to go out to eat plus I could make myself a tea whenever I fancied. It was off season when I was there and I was the only guest staying so Joseph took time everyday to chat to me and helped me work out my onward travel. The pod is new so everything is sparkling clean and fresh, the beds, sheets and towels. The WiFi was fast and regular and there was always hot water for showers after many sweaty walks around town. I would highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone looking for a comfortable and hospitable homestay. Thanks to Joseph and his parents for welcoming me to India and showing me how kind and generous people here are. I'm sure I'll be back on this trip or in the future and will always tell other travellers I meet to stay here too.

    Séjour fantastique Havre de paix en pleine nature”
    Séjour parfait hôtel juste à côté d un hôtel 5 étoiles ... Cadre féerique plage à 100 m, village de pêcheur, chambre AC d’un excellent rapport qualité prix (20 euros par nuit breakfast incl hors saison) Hôtes adorables et cuisine délicieuse faite par la maman de « John » (cours de cuisine avec la maman qui ne parle pas anglais). Nous avons pris tous nos repas la bas ... Cette famille est adorable c est un vrai homestay on se sens vraiment accueilli par toute la famille ... merci à eux pour leur gentillesse ! La homestay nous a organisé une visite des canaux de Allepey en barque de pêcheur couverte du soleil (pas de moteur, juste un guide avec une rame et une rame pour chacune de nous deux) ce qui est 100 fois mieux que les houseboat dans la mesure où ce qui est le plus beau c est les petits canaux où seules les barques passent ... et en plus on ne pollue pas l endroit que l on visite (pollution essence, rejet de déchets, visuelle et auditive terrible pour la population). 300 à 400 roupies l’heure de canoë pour deux hors trajet pr Allepey (4 heures minimum pr ce prix mais une journée de 6h de canoë n est pas fatigante même pour des filles non sportives ;) A recommander +++

    ひとり旅で行きました。寒がりなので部屋はエアコン無しにしましたがファンがあるから窓を開ければ問題ないです(夜は蚊に注意) 部屋はスッキリして日差しも良く、かなりくつろげます。キッチンは調理器具や食器があり自炊可能。冷蔵庫もあり、飲み物も冷やせて暑いインドでは助かりました。 屋上があり洗濯物がよく乾く。部屋数は3室で多過ぎず、ホストや他のお客と丁度いい距離感が保ててとても過ごし易かった。 次回もまた絶対泊まりたい宿です
