[Review for dorm with 6 Beds] 1. NO AC*: The 6 bed dorm room's AC is *only turned on when the number of guests are more than 4. During my stay we had NO AC. 2. No Ventilation: The 6 Bed dorm room has no ventilation(windows). It only has 2 doors both of which need to be closed in the night. If the AC(point 1) is not running it gets suffocated. And would force you to leave one door open in the night(bad for security). 3. Bad attitude of the manger(though the other staff was good)


We had a great stay at castle house, staff we're very helpful and friendly. Rooms were great, pool and bar/restaurant were an added bonus. It's location makes it nice and quite as well as close to the beach and night life. Well recommended.


Super chilled out place, close to the beach (ten minute walk) and really nice and helpful guys working there. The pool is a nice touch, the rooms basic but clean and the bar restaurant is very convenient and nice food. Overall, really enjoyed our time. Be sure to check out D'Silvas on the beach, ask for Luther...and The Hard Rock...say hi to Jimmy there for me :)


Awesome place! In 4 mins you can be in the hustle and bustle of calangute, in 10-15 at the beach (walking). Place is off the main road bud surrounded by other hostels so feels safe to walk. From the north/south direction access road. Rooms were modern and very clean (had 2 private doubles) Food was great, price is brilliant, reception staff are very helpful and honest. If I'm ever in calangute again I'll stay here!

Great staff, very helpful, some even challenge you to pool. Room was fine, swimming pool and bar great for a chill evening. close to the beach but in a quiet area.


Castle House took a while to find but it was worth it. The rooms were clean, spacious and good value for money. The food was excellent! I highly recommend staying there.


This has been our best stay in India so far. The rooms were clean and bright with AC and fan, the amenities good, the restaurant and bar excellent (and reasonably priced), and the reception and bar staff were excellent. The could have cleaned the pool more often, but it wasn't too bad and apart from that it was perfect,

The room were very comfortable and big as was the shower with hot water. Nice little balcony overlooking a quiet street. The bar/ restaurant, pool and the free breakfasts were a bonus. The only downside was they were renovating the bar area while we were there, the smell and noise wasn't pleasant and we weren't able to use the facilities we paid for (bar, pool-table/ restaurant) during this time. I wish they had warned us about this before hand. Mel www.theworldunderourfeet.com
