We stayed at the Niyati Homestay for four nights towards the end of a three week trip to southern India. My son thought this was the best accomodation that we had. The rooms were modrn and clean, and the house nicely decorated with modern art. The rooms were quite and peaceful, even though the homestay is very well situated in the centre of Kochin, and within easy walking distance of most of the major sites. In terms of breakfast, there are some wonderful options a few minutes walk away, and so this was not a problem. The staff are very helpful and welcoming, and I would recommend this stay to anyone going to Kochin.
