Check Into This Heritage Bungalow Hostel With Private Rooms In Fort Kochi
Zostel’s hostel in Cochi is smack in the centre of heritage Fort Kochi and with cosy bunk beds and private rooms, it’s the perfect place to check-in solo, with your squad, or SO on a budget.
What Makes It Awesome
Dutch buildings, Jewish synagogues, Chinese fishing nets, and an array of heritage properties are what Fort Kochi is all about. If you are planning on hitting up what is Kerala’s heritage capital, check into — Zostel Kochi. The Kerala-style bungalow gets that quintessential Zostel makeover with mural works that reflect Kerala’s culture (think kathakali, elephants, and festival fanfare) along with bunk beds, huge community space, and the general relaxed vibe.
Common areas are big with Zostel and the Kochi property takes it a notch higher with its rooftop space. You have the open-air sit-out with a few easy chairs for you to lean back, listen to your playlist or catch up on reading. Mosquitoes notwithstanding, the rooftop space is also where the restaurant is housed. Order an authentic Kerala breakfast, or in the typical hostel fashion, make Maggi.
The property’s Kerala-style architecture gets infused with Zostel’s quirks with the corridors and common rooms all getting a splash of colour and plenty of mural art for your Instagram. Mixed dorms, female dorms, and private rooms are yours to book with the per night charges starting at INR 400 per person. It’s budget-friendly, no? Couples who are looking for a little bit of privacy, you can check into the private ensuite room which is around INR 1,500.
If you're travelling alone and want to meet new and interesting people, the common rooms are perfect for travellers to interact with like-minded travellers over board games, music, or itinerary. Or you can check out our 12 Hours In Kochi itinerary here.
