I am so grateful for the great recommendations that have been given by Benson and his wife Shiny at Costa Gama ! We have had the most amazing Indian experience, thanks to you both.  From the great Taxi Driver, Baiju taking us round the waterfalls and tea gardens and teaching us what he knew about the plants, animals and the view points to the delicious fish banquets organised by the backwaters — It has honestly been the best holiday of my life ! I will be sure to recommend you and your hostel to every one in know, who is up for a bit of an adventure ! I have gained a love for India (and I have told every one about the Yoga and that I did a headstand !) Thank you so much

I have stayed at Costa Gama for two weeks now. I truly feel like it is my home, I cannot say enough good things about it.  Benson, Shiny, Ignatius, Donovan & Denver are amazing people.  They will look after you like you are their own child.  If you get a chance, ask Denver for a challenging game of chess, or listen to Benson play some music.  You cant go wrong here.  All my Love ….
