Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guest House Review, Kochi
The Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guest House would have been fine except that the location on the map on the booking website was not at all where it was in reality, and the location I thought it was in was one of the main reasons I picked it in the first place.
Luckily I only ever book ahead one night so the next day I moved to the Four Seasons Hotel.
The room in the Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guest House was a good size, i.e. I could easily do my Survival Fitness Plan Self Defense training in it.
It has a desk but no chair and the double bed was actually just two single beds put together.
Wifi was excellent. Such an amazing change since being in Bagasbas Beach where it almost never worked well.
No towel, toiletries, electrical sockets (not one!), mosquito net (I got smashed by mosquitos, regardless of the cieling fan), or a covering bedsheet. I ended up just taking the one of the other single bed.
The owner was a good guy.
My room was right next to the main road so a bit noisy.
I would have stayed in the Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guest House for my entire time in Kochi had the location been accurate.
Book your stay at the Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guesthouse or other accommodation in Kochi.
Getting to the Backpackers Holidays Kochin Guesthouse
A taxi from the airport to Fort Kochin cost just over 1000INR for non-aircon and took about 90minutes.
Since the position they gave on the map was incorrect we spent about 30minutes just looking for the place.
It is possible to get a bus from the airport to Fort Kochin, which I would have done had I have landed a bit earlier (I arrived at 2200pm). As with all bus rides, it probably takes quite a bit longer but costs a fraction of the price.
