We had a very cozy room on the first floor which had a tiny balcony opening into a mini forest! They served an elaborate breakfast every morning on this table which turned into a pool table later! The other guests were a mix of Indians and foreign nationals of all ages. The staff was courteous. I had forgotten my spectacles in the room and they were kind enough to post them. But on the last day we had to pay full price for the rented two-wheelers used only for a couple of hours in the morning.
This is a one 4-bed non-AC dorm attached to a hotel, so don't expect hostel vibes. That said, expect a great value breakfast included and outstanding staff. The staff are extremely helpful and do look out for you. In terms of facilities, the bathroom is nice and clean and the place has a clean pool. The only minor downsides would be hard beds really straighten out your spine and I wasn't sure what to do with a thick blanket in the hot weather. 10-15min walk to the beach, bars and scooter hire.
Great staff, great food, great value! Just 20min walk to palolem beach. Really nice staff
