          We stayed in one of the bungalows at the back of the garden. Loads of space and clean. The garden area is a really nice area to chill/hang out with other travellers. Great food. The family are lovely too!

          Really nice place - amazing people. Lovely outdoor communal areas - really easy to meet guests and chat to staff. Delicious, cheap food served there, yoga every morning. Great location - 5 min walk to the beach. My favourite hostel in Kerala!

          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!!
