I had a great time staying at this hostel. Within 5 minutes of walking through the door I was on the back of a scooter heading to a beach with a group of people I just met. I was a solo women traveler and felt completely safe. They had a great breakfast too wasn't Indian food which is nice for a change, and they provide cheap beer for everyone while you are all hanging out in the common area. It was a great time and I would definitely go back.

Best Hostel we stayed in! Great atmosphere, very clean and friendly. The breakfast really is amazing. You can rent schooters and visit loads of beaches around. Vagator beaches and the ford are only a short walk away from the Hostel. Very social place, would always come back.

Good place to meet people, albeit certainly a party hostel. Good location close to the beach and the free breakfast is very nice. However, I'm conflicted in saying this because the two women were lovely people, but the service from reception staff was poor. Our booking was taken wrongly and we had to move room for our last two nights. We were in the hostel 5 days before a staff member offered us their map of Goa. The deluxe private costs more but the ac works far better in the standard privates.

Steps from Vagator Beach and next door to a restaurant and a convenience store that can literally fulfill all of one's needs on a daily basis. We stayed in an AC dorm which was clean and good value for money considering we got full control over the AC - really nice after a hot day of wandering about. Nice, chill spaces for hanging out in the main hostel area, and the breakfast samosas were great!

Has to be closely running with my favourite hostel in India. Such a great atmosphere and was hard to leave. Would recommend it in a heart beat!

The hostel is nice and clean with very good stuff. If you like to have a time with every night party till morning, this place is a no rule hostel and great for you.

The ladies who work the front desk are awesome. Good atmosphere and spaces for socializing. About a 15 minute walk to the beach. Depending on the night can either have a very party vibe or a very chilled vibe. Wish there would have been more info provided by hostel about events and parties but overall great place for meeting people and hanging out.

Great Hostel and breakfast included is amazing. Only drawback is 10-15min walk to the beach and nicer beaches elsewhere. But female staff are awesome and great place to meet other people.

I arrived at your property and was advised that the private room was not on this property and was located 100m away in a different complex. There was no signage and I had a little trouble to find the complex. At this second complex there was no security and/or staff. One of the reasons you stay in a hostel is the common area's where you can socialise with other travellers. Being in a second complex did not facilitate this. I left the accommodation and found alternate accommodation.

Hey there - you will notice on our hostelworld site that we clearly mention that all private rooms are in a separate building which is (very private and) a short walk away from the main hostel. The main hostel houses dormitories. We would also like to point out that we did not charge you any cancellation fee despite your last minute cancellation.

Girl at reception desk was really nice, very clear in what she told us. Breakfast was as good as 2 years ago. We stayed in private room in west wing first floor. The room had a smell from too much moisture because it's on first floor, even fan and AC didn't help much, especially after power was out that night due to pouring rain. I was waken up a couple of times by people talking and doing other things in the hallway. Be careful with mosquitoes in the garden. Phone no. on website not working.

By far the best hostel we have stayed at. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Good breakfast with tasty samosas. The common room and the kitchen really gathered the crowd and made it easy to get to know other people. A lot of partying in this area and this hostel was no exeption, but as a backpacker this was no suprise. We loved this hostel and the people we met there. Most people planned to leave after two or three days and ended up staying for a week or more. Highly recommended!
