Had a fab stay at Jungle Hostel. Met some really nice people, and the staff were super friendly. Really great atmosphere, would definitely recommend to anyone, especially people travelling alone.

Wonderful hostel! I would stay here again in an instant. The place has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are very friendly, and it's in a beautiful spot. However, you'll need to learn how to ride a scooter or have a friend who does as it's the best way to see Goa. You can rent them at a good price from the hostel. The free breakfast is also a bonus - if you get up early enough there are samosas!

This was the first time I'd been there, but Jungle World is definitely where I'm going to stay the next time I'm in Goa. It has this really congenial atmosphere which you don't find easily. The common room is great, it's clean, and comfortable - lots of books and games. We went in the monsoons, and ended up staying indoors quite a bit (which wasn't hard at all, we were very happy just lazing around in the common room). Met lots of nice people - both the staff and the guests were very nice :)

Really like every bit of my time at the hostel. Nice service and friendly staff. The amenities were appropriate and gave a feeling of home to us. The decor was nicely done and was very welcoming.

Jungle hostel is by far the best hostel I've stayed at in the whole world. Loved it and was sad to go. It has everything the cheap traveler could possibly need. Besides the cheap rates, Jungle hostel has excellent wifi, showers, towels, breakfast, clean drinking water, snacks, beer, nice places to lounge around, excellent/informative staff, scooters for rent, telephones, computers, travel guide books, and the list goes on. If you're making a trip to Goa, stay here!

Best part about this place is the atmosphere, people are very friendly and there's always someone to talk to at the main area. Beds are comfortable but without AC its gets SO hot so I recommend an AC room. Laundry was under par but can't complain as its only 100 rupees. This place is great, highly recommended!

Jungle Hostel is one of the coolest hostels that I've stayed in. The building itself is nice and everything is comfortable, but more than that, there was a real sense of community about it. There's a lot of common space and people are encouraged to talk and meet one another, and that happened at Jungle more than most hostels. The beds and rooms were comfortable. There are quite a few bugs around, but that's standard for India. Drinks (incl. beer) and snacks are available at reception.

Really good hostel with a great, laidback atmosphere. The lounge area both inside and outside made the hostel very social, met lots of good people. Close to Vagator beach, restaurants and bars. The owner was very helpful and kind. Thank you!

Lovely hostel - fantastic atmosphere and friendly staff. Nice location walking distance from Vagator beach. Great common areas for meeting other travellers. The A/C dorms are comfortable and quiet but they are a short walk (~4-5 min) around the corner from the main hostel - didn't bother me but worth bearing in mind.

This is my favorite hostel I've been to in 4 months of travel. The atmosphere is top notch. Truly a backpackers haven. The location is away from the crazy areas of Goa, which is a good thing. Great facilities: free breakfast, cheap laundry, easy scooter rental, and a great outdoor area in front. Can't recommend this place enough for solo backpackers and small groups, as long as partying is on the agenda.

We've been travelling Asia for 3 months, and this was definitely one of the highlights (hostel-wise)! The common area is great and the fridge is filled with 50 INR beer. The atmosphere is really chill, but people are always up for a party. You will always find someone to hang out with. It's close to Vagator Beach, and a short cab ride away from the more lively Anjuna Beach. The hostel also provide scooter rental, which makes it easy to explore more remote areas. Plan to extend your stay!

This hostel is amazing! I had such a good time there! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are nice as well. Cheap laundry service and very fast taxi service are handy too. The most important thing is the atmosphere here though! People are sooo chilled all the time. Smoking chaddas in front of the hostel and everything. Backpackers are very likely to make new friend here. Good for solo travellers.
