    This is one of the most friendly hostels with a friendly dog and a cat with four kittens, I have ever stayed in. The food at the Cafeteria was good, however, Coffee can be improved. The location is also very good and not hard to find, located just few hundred metres away from the Vagatore beach and other famous hangout areas. Also, Shubham, Aanchal and Nisaar were great hosts and Shubham makes excellent Mutton, whisky sour and Irish Mule.

    Definitely the best hostel I've stayed at in my time in India. Great location, just a short walk from Vagator beach, and rooms are all clean, spacious & comfortable. They often have BBQs going on in the evening, with a very chilled and sociable atmosphere. The staff are incredible - very informative and helpful and just a great bunch of people. Highly recommend anyone coming to Goa to stay at Folklore!

    Great place to stay, especially for the money you are expected to spend. Non-peal season was around INR 390-410 per bed per night. They provide you activas and bikes (my friend managed to get a Royal Enfield) if you just ask them so you dont have to go looking for one. They have lockers and you can keep your valuables in them when you step out. Shubham and the management are nice people and they also provide good coffee and beers so that helps too!!
