Property Description

Caterpillar is a small cozy hostel situated in a central location in Anjuna. It is surrounded by a range of cafes, bars and two convenience/liquor stores. Pretty much anything is easily reachable by foot, but most goans and tourists would still go by scooty (you can park accros the street).

Caterpillar has two 9-bed dorms with attached bathrooms, plus another shared bathroom downstairs. The downstairs area is all together a small bar/cafe/common area, where we serve free breakfast to our guests, drinks and a growing menu of meals and snacks.

We are very excited about hosting guests that want to share their experience with us, give us suggestions and maybe even help out with some artworks and decoration in exchange for a free drink. View House Rules

    It's difficult for me to even know where to being with my review. Upon arriving at the Caterpillar, our first experience of a shared dorm may I add, we were greeted by the wonderful Manish. Easily the most relaxed and laid back human being I've ever had the pleasure to meet. He made checking in a breeze and gave us non-stop help throughout the week, going above and beyond his job title! I'd just like to thank Manish on behalf of my partner and I and would highly recommend the Caterpillar Hostel!

    What was supposed to be a sudden and unplanned weekend getaway turned out to be one of the most memorable trips of our lifetime. From the open kitchen to the security provided, From suggestions around what to visit nearby to arranging logistics, Folks at Caterpillar work hard to ensure you have a memorable Goa experience. Compassion at its very best. I'd strongly recommend Indians and also international travellers to experience the Caterpillar Hospitality. Cheers guys! See you all soon!

    I stayed for 2 nights. I was the only person in the hostel and in my 9 bed dorm, both days. So I really got value (privateroom) for the money, haha! Nice staff, chill place, and a cheap alternative very central in Anjuna. The owner let me keep my things in the hostel during the whole next day as my bus departed late. Nice and budget friendly 😁😁

    I was expecting more considering the previous reviews. I couldn’t even close the dorm door, thus it was full of mosquitos. The bedsheets were also quite old and not very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful though! And the boys I met there as well :)

    Although this hostel is in a good location, it wasn’t clean at all. In the room there were dead bugs everywhere; on the sides, in cobwebs over all the walls, in the bathroom, etc. The bathroom wasn’t clean and the floor was always dirty. As well as all this, there was rat droppings EVERYWHERE. On the floor, on the sides and also under the beds bottom sheet. Whoever made our beds for us obviously didn’t care if we slept on rat poo. Also it says free breakfast on their page, but they lied.
