Location is just behind the taxi stand at the helipad situated on the South cliff area. The cliff is a minute walk and within 15 min you can reach the black beach or 5 min for the central beach. Room and bathroom clean. Came with a useful mosquito net over the bed. Prices are reasonable but but better value could...

We really loved this guesthouse in Varkala; our room was perfectly clean and very cosy. Hot water was available whenever we wanted it as was wifi. There was a lovely rooftop perfect for a yoga practice and tea was brought to our room whenever we requested it. We stayed on the upper floor with our own balcony which was great...

I love that place. I hope, I will be able to visit it again. The hotel is located very near to the beach. Our room was very clean and nicely furnished. The window looked out over a nice garden. The wi-fi was ok. The staff were kind and helpful. I don't need anything else.

As i was a single budget traveler,i didn't stay on the main building (which obviously had new and better equipped rooms)or in one of the nice cottages of the garden, but in a cheaper and therefore basic room which i think it was located next to the staff's room(or maybe just another basic room).You get what you pay for.My room...

The staff are all extremely friendly and are really helpful. Especially with getting to around and away from varkala. The price is really good value for money. The rooms are white and hand painted designs of birds and flowers are a nice touch. The only reason the property isn't getting the 5 stars is the sheets are dirty and stained...

The owner is super nice. 500 rupees for a room which was really clean & also had good wifi. Very near to the beach as well so a great location with a couple of restaurants near by as well. I would stay here again.

Jickys is a peaceful, clean and comfortable guesthouse. Our room was beautiful with high ceilings and clean white walls and sheets. The guesthouse is situated about 5 minutes walk from the main strip of restaurants and shops and is therefore very well located. The staff were helpful, pleasant & discreet.

Hi all, We stayed at Jickys for a few nights in April of 2014, and had a really great time exploring the area, and really enjoyed the good location of our accomodation, Jickys. On our fifth night we had been silly enough to keep our valuables on the table with the window open and had them stolen while we were...
