The place was very nice and clean, with great staff and amazing breakfast. The location's not the best but I reccommend it for that budget.


Super Hostel, I really like the atmosphere; It is not only a place to sleep, but a place to be. very helpful stuff; Much more hostels in india should be like this one


Great place to stay. Friendly staff. Value for money. Recommended.


This place was an absolute bargain. Good facilities (bar, pool, decent showers etc). Don't come here if you are expecting a hostel vibe though - it's more a place for older couples so you will need to head to the beach if you want to meet backpackers…. That said, do come here if you want to avoid backpackers! Only a short walk to the beach (10 minutes max) but given that renting scooters is so cheap, it's well worth investing in one.


Amazing place I extended my 3 nights stay into 3 weeks location is super but the staff is extremely super helpfull friendly peopple also the include d breakfast. You can choose from 10! different. Items what is great. Nicd garden. Around you see monkeys and birds. I have over 20 years travellexperience. I really reccomend this place


Immaculate place. Beautiful rooms. But NOT a hostel - this is a private hotel that caters to western families. You won't meet other travellers here... It's also a 10-15 minute walk from the Palolem beach. Expensive relative to beach front huts that are perhaps more rustic, but much easier for you to meet other people.


This place has one dorm room to be listed on Hostelworld and rest are normal hotel rooms. Far from the action, the beach they are close to is not the main one. They are close to a rocky beach with little sand the main one is a mile or so away.


I stayed in a dorm room. There was no a/c and it smelt a little damp, but otherwise fine. The room was cleaned each day as was the rest of CH. One of the major plus points is you get wifi in the dorm unlike most of the private rooms. All staff are friendly and helpful. The food is quite good too. It's about a 15 min walk to Palolem beach or 70rp in a tuk-tuk.


Loved this place so beautiful felt like home and an overall good vibe. The bar and kitchen staff were great making every effort food was great too defo recommend a stay by one of goa best beaches


Very friendly staff and very clean. A little bit out of main town so unless you have transportation it is a bit inconvenient.
