    My favorite thing about Shiva Garden is the communal area; there are tables, hammocks, hanging chairs, swings, and floor seating area. This area brings a lot of people together; the host family, solo, couple, and family travelers. A great place to chill and relax at!

    Fine if you’re on a tight budget - rough and ready, not too far from the beach and cheap. Negative points: very noisy at night, uncomfortable bed, unhelpful staff, no information provided on arrival. This place could be dramatically improved by a warm welcome. If...More

    Shiva Garden is an amazing place to be. Varkala is a strange place. It's touristy but also relaxed and chill. Shiva garden is the best place to stay, I'm sure. The rooms are basic but clean (and not expensive!). Just ask to see all the...More

    Hi!! I am having some trouble getting a hold of Shiva Garden to make some sort of reservation/arrangements. I have tried calling but my phone tells me the number is invalid (likely my own error of some kind trying to internationally dial) and I have emailed them, but received no reply. This place gets great reviews and would really dig staying here for some time. Help!!
