so far away from the beaches/parties/shops/anything. but good to get pissed cheaply and meet some people. the hostel does shut at 1 though so prepare for a walk into trance country
Nice place to stay, especially if your alone and want to meet people. The reception staff were all nice, didn't understand the common room closing at 1 in a 'party hostel' but no major problems.
pretty average, reception staff weren't very helpful, too busy playing on their phones and socialising. Kudos to the cleaning lady who seems to do all the work.
Hiren is awesome. He totally made our trip so much more enjoyable. Brings everyone together really well. Knows where all the best parties are and just so much fun. Would definitely go back to Prison.

This is one of the best hostels out there. Staff is really helpful, and the atmosphere is amazing! Definitely stay here.
What a magical place this is. Words sometimes can't do full justice but let's try. Lovely people, lovely staff, lovely management. The two girls that work the desk are like sisters now. The Aunty that makes breakfast for us is like my granny. The security guard is my man. The owner is the nicest coolest guy. You'll meet ppl that will touch ur soul, make family w the staff that ull ride or die for and memories that ull cherish forever. Shouts to Evelyn and Mary ann for being awesome. Ankit out.
I moved here from another hostel on the same road because of the great reviews and it didn't disappoint. Only stayed for 2 nights, wish it could have been longer. A great hostel with a fun theme. Staff were friendly and helpful. The place was clean. Security was good with a code entry door and large cages under bunks for belongings. Free basic breakfast. Good social area and atmosphere for meeting people. A little more expensive than other places near by but worth it for the better experience.
Prison hostel was great. It catered to our every need. The beds were comfy and the rooms were cleaned everyday. Really friendly staff and an awesome atmosphere in the common room of an evening. 15min walk to the beach, good wifi, stocked fridge, easy scooter hire, hot showers
On the whole this hostel was really good, for its quirkiness and fun. However the lock ups are under the bed and you can easily get in them from under the mattress. On numerous occasions peoples stuff went missing during our stay. This put us on edge during our stay and meant we had to carry all valuables with us. We stayed in on two of our nights and woke up to the security guard entering the room and standing in the room. He then went into the bathroom and stayed in their for a while.weird
We stayed in Prison Hostel for 3 nights recently & really enjoyed our stay! The place itself is nice & spacious with a great communal area to socialize with other travellers & generally just chill out. The staff were helpful, especially Richard who was always there with a smile in the morning, asking what eggs you would like :) Location wise, it's a 15 minute walk to the beach, not bad at all!!
Location is very good. Staff is awesome. They are very helpful with everything. You can even rent a scooter from the hostel The hostel are very cheap and you get a lot for your money. Even breakfast is included. Close to the beach, parties and market. It's the perfect place for backpackers.
It was great, close to beach, lots of cool people, and had snacks and beer on deck. Staff was relaxed and atmosphere was too.

Good places to meet other back packers. Short walk to the beach and bars. Would probably stay here again if I came back to Anjuna
