The price is very cheap and the location is excellent for Varkala beaches. However, our room was more like a cell and it wasn't very clean (stains on towels, unclean bathroom, etc). We expected basic but this didn't even meet that requirement and furthermore our room light and fan were also controlled from outside the room so unsuspecting fellow guests...

Stayed here for 2 nights, very friendly welcome, and staff friendly throughout. We had an upstairs room, which was decent and clean, hot shower, with an area to sit out amongst the palm trees. Only a 2 minute walk to the clifftop path by the beach. It was great to be set back from the cliff path activities when we...

We stayed two nights and had a really lovely stay. Mini Oscar was kind and accommodating. We had initially booked a INR 3500 room because her less expensive rooms were booked, but by the time we arrived there was a cheaper one available and she had it ready for us. The rooms were a totally decent size with lovely hand...

Very lovely, definitely stay here if you go to Varkala beach, it's cheap and clean and practical. The rooms are such good value and pretty, the beds are comfy, fans and hot water in the bathrooms. Yoga in the mornings on the roof! Short walk to Coffee Temple - best place for breakfast and good coffee - at last!! Highly...

We booked on line with hotel.com for £116,(3 nights) but when we saw the room we decided not to stay here, it was very expensive for a very small basic room in a scruffy garden with no views or a nice place to sit. It might suit some people but it was very over priced (on line at least) ....

We arrived at Jicky's with a booking for one night that we immediately changed to 3 and then later to 5 nights. Our room was a good size, very clean and white with an attached bathroom with cold shower, plenty of windows and access to a shared balcony. The marble floors help keep it cool as does the fan. For...

It's a very good budget hotel to stay. I stayed there for one night in Standard double room. Located in a nice location very close to north cliff of Varkala. Room is good as per the budget. It has a nice mosquito net above the bed. There will be lot of mosquito if you open the window, so you have...

Our stay at Jickys was a perfect start for our Indian holiday. Our room (cottage) was clean and spacious, and the garden was beautiful. The location is great - there's only a quick walk to the cliff and main beach. The staff was extremely helpful, and helped us with getting our missing luggage back from airport. There's nothing to complain...

Very quiet and peaceful place, extremely good service and fair location - not directly near crowdy walkway, but close enough (2 minutes walk) to the beach. You can rent a private scooter for just 300 Rs and go wherever you want. You can also leave your backpack and go for a longer trip. Just visit Varkala, check-in at Jicky's and...

Good clean budget accomodation. Inexpensive set of rooms run by friendly staff. Very close to cliff and beach but no sea view. A torch is useful at night for dark path. Arranged transport from airport for competitive rate. Recommend highly.
