Vedanta provides you an economical stay option in Varkala. The property is very close to the cliff, hence you can walk to the beach or shacks anytime you want. The staff is good and the hotel has different room options like dormitories, double rooms and huts. Good place for solo travelers, but if you are looking for something classy better...

Stayed in a 6 person dorm room which is very cramped. The bed was comfy. No noise at night-time so was able to get a great nights sleep. Bathroom isnt that clean and we had to share the one bathroom with more than 6 people i think. The staff arent too friendly. There is free filtered water which is great....

The place is really very comfortable and maintained. The staff is friendly and makes sure the place remains clean and tidy. The Papanasam beach is just a 2 minutes walk which adds further to locations proximity to all the good places to eat nearby.

Very nice place to stay. I stayed in one of the privates and really enjoyed the location. Being a 5 min walk to the beach, I was there every day. The front lawn is also very beautiful for someone who loves to see green grass and trees. Met very cool people. I would definitely recommend.

The hotel was pretty close to Papanasam beach and the Helipad cliff .. Walkable distance to the beach. The services was good. Good value for money. We stayed in Bamboo Hut .. The huts were small but it served its purpose
