I have completely fallen for the honesty of the staff here. One eve I forgot my wallet and passport somewhere near the pool. 2 hours later I get it back from the reception in the same state. Miracles like this does not happen often. Surprised to find my booking under a different person's name. but it's ok. Also hostel world had mentioned for me to pay certain balance amount and I found there were taxes above that to be paid. Still the service, comfort and honesty makes up for that. Good work.
Good location. Nice staff and clean place. Helping pre booking and very helpful during stay.
The staff was really nice and super helpful! Great bar/restaurant by the pool... made me forget I was staying in a room with 6 other people! :)

A simple hostel near to the busy town. Staff were helpful and the food and drink was well priced. The only real problem was that there was a gap under our porch door so a couple of monster cockroaches got in but because they have fumigated they died pretty soon after and we're found under our bed!
The rooms should be a bit more renovated and not old-fashioned
Great staff, fun atmosphere and great value for money
Initially my fincee and I ment to say 2 nights in Castle House but loved the place so much so extended to 5 nights. No issue with that.Excellent food at the hotel. You can eat what ever you like of the menu and pay at check out. We stayed in 6 bed dorm and was very comfortable. Big bathroom.Small balcony to hand your wet clothes.Fan and aircon in the room. Room will be cleaned only if you leave the key for them to do so.All staff very friendly! Hotel for backpackers as well as for family holiday

Great place. Very close to the happening places in North Goa. Toilet and room was kept very neat and clean. Definitely would go back there the next time I'm in Goa.
Great hostel about a 10 min walk to the beach and main shopping area. Staff where friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hostel.
Everything was fantastic except the internet connection, which only works outside, and is unstable.
Nice stay, very friendly staff and the rooms are pretty clean. The pool is not very useful :(
Very good hostel for India. Calangute itselve has everything you can image. The beach is a bit overcrowded. Hostel staff is very helpful and helps to organise tours for a fair price.
We loved our stay here! Not one bad thing to say. The room was spotless and very spacious, the hotel is set away from the busy and noisy streets but only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The bar was fully stocked and is positioned next to the swimming pool and pool table. We had many enjoyable evenings chatting with the owner and his amazing staff. If you want a relaxing holiday, with good laughs, great food and fantastic company, Castle House is the best of the best.
We planned to stay for 3 nights ended up staying for 5. Food was good, close taxi to good bars and easy walk to beach. Had big groups of families traveling, not many young tourists. But we did visit in off season so everything could be different at peak times. Rooms were not cleaned during stay, even after asking reception. A/c not provided when requested. Would stay again only because of cost.
A well centrally located budget hotel down a quiet back street. Staff are very friendly and helpful and service is good. Quite a basic hotel, but it does have a pool.
The best thing in this Hotel in my opinion was their staff. They were really professional and reliable. The hotel is pretty and I would recommend it to everyone, AS LONG AS YOU DONT TAKE THE DORM ROOM!!! I just staid there for 2 nights and it was so wet and smelly, that i had to wash all my clothes after i left this Hotel because they just got the same smell as the room. If you have an alternative dont take the dorm. If you take a private room you'll be surely happy with your option though.
