Vedanta Wake Up! is a social but relaxed hostel where you will find many backpackers stopping off as they head through Kerala. The atmosphere isn't great but it's clean, comfy, and you shouldn't have any problems meeting new people.

The Location

This hostel is located at the north end of Mahatma Gandhi Beach. The main Cochin bus station is also here, so you will likely be dropped off here too. Next to the bus station is the Cultural Theater, a large, round, white building -- anyone in the area should be able to point you in the direction of it if you're not nearby. With this on your right, head up, parallel to the beach. You'll pass some drink stalls on your left and after sixty meters, you will arrive at the hostel driveway on your right. The nearest train station is Ernakulam, a thirty-minute rickshaw or one-hour bus ride away.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Dorms and privates are kitted out to a high standard with very comfy beds, air conditioner, and ceiling fans; there are also lockers and bathrooms in each dorm. The bathrooms are clean and spacious, but the showers are pretty poor and trickle out when only the hot is turned on. A quite high volume of guests can mean that the twenty-four/seven hot water can be lukewarm so try and get in early. It can be unbearably hot in Kerala sometimes, though, so a cold shower isn't the worst thing.

Common Spaces

The common area is a very open, social place with sofas, tables, and chairs -- you will regularly see people hanging out here and there's a few large ceiling fans so it's nice and cool. Breakfast and simple food can also be purchased here, although the street food out the front is much cheaper. There's also some board games available to play, a plasma TV, and a small seating area out the front. One negative is that the Wi-Fi only serves the ground and first floors.

Summary

This hostel is a relaxed stopoff as you pass through the area. The area doesn't offer too many sights but its location means that you'll surely have the opportunity to meet up with people heading north or south through the state. It's friendly, well run, and you can arrange tours and hire bikes to explore the town.
