“Great & Friendly Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

Me and my Girlfriend lived at Daniels Homestay for 3 nights and it was a real good time. Clean and comfortable rooms! Near to the center and every question which may occured, was friendly answered by Daniel & his Wife. Thanks and maybe until our next visit in Kochi.

We have stayed for 2 nights in this guest house with only 2 rooms.
It' s the cleanest guest house we have stayed in India. The owners are very friendly and nice.
Very clean sheets and, bathroom, free wifi ( very rare in India), very quiet area not far from the the interest places.
Worth to stay there.

It is rare to find accommodation anywhere, let alone in India where it is hard to find fault.
Daniels Homestay, tucked down a quiet little street near the Basilica is one of those rarities.
Having read other glowing reviews, I booked a room on line.
Daniel and his wife Flower are excellent hosts with an eye for detail ever so rare in the accommodation business. It was truly five star. Fresh towels and sheets, TV, an electric jug together with tea and coffee as well as all the fresh water you can drink. They even brought those lovely little bananas and other treats for guests free of charge.
Daniel is very helpful when it comes to arranging day trips. You can be sure you will get value for money. He even drove me himself to the bus depot when I left and waited for me to be safely on my way.
There are just the two rooms available here so it is essential that you book in advance. It will probably be your most comfortable and best value for money homestay.

Room Tip: Just two rooms available. A double and a twin. Both light, airy and fantastic.

Intended to stay for only 2 nights but stayed for about a week as we were reluctant to leave as the place is so nice. Very clean, fresh sheets, a comfortable bed, good fan, hot water (if you need it), free filter water, free wifi, free tea and coffee, TV in room, clean towels available to use, a rooftop drying area, only 2 rooms meaning its chilled and not jam packed full of foreigners and they are extremely friendly and helpful people also. For the price it's absolutely amazing value.

This is a great place to base yourself to just relax and catch up on your sleep if you are getting tired of endlessly moving between mediocre accommodation.
The owners of this place take genuine pride in their homestay and try to offer a real service to their guests. Unlike many alleged homestays in Cochin which are basically just money making guesthouse enterprises that cut corners to offer barely adequate service.

Can't recommend the place enough. Forget whatever the LP reccommends and stay here.
