Property Description

Our Golpata home became Bangladesh’s first B&B in 2013 as a way to establish a new kind of community-based tourism in Bangladesh, one that provide stable funding for children’s shelters run by our founders and also provide jobs to young adults. Starting from humble roots, we are waiting with a warm welcome for you at our B&B in Dhaka.

After a long journey or red eye flights, we know the importance of a clean, friendly place for you to call home. When you walk through our door, you'll first notice that people seem to be very comfortable around here, lounging around or reading by the bookshelves.

In the mornings, a choice of Western or Bangladeshi breakfast is included at our communal dining table. Since we also live here, our kitchen is fully stocked, complete with unlimited, eco-filtered, clean drinking water free for all guests.
We are located in a safe community, and our building has 24-hour security. And our building has a rooftop if you like views!

Our neighborhood is full of small shops, local markets, and cheap food. A quick rickshaw away are the famous areas of Banani, Gulshan, and Basundhara. We are close to the airport and train station, perfect for onwards travel. We also arrange personalized day trips around Dhaka city and to neighboring handicraft villages, memorials, etc.

You have a chance to make an impact on the lives of many children and families in need. Thanks to your support, our community work now includes not only our children’s shelter, but also projects that empower women from slums and schools around the area. Thank you for benefiting the community. View House Rules

    Joanna runs a very nice bed and breakfast in a smaller quieter neighborhood close to the airport. The breakfast was included and was delicious and Joanna and the staff are very knowledgeable about Dhaka and activities in Bangladesh. Through this b&b I booked two tours with a man named Deep which made travel much easier, cheaper, and faster. The room was clean, had mosquito netting, A/C (I didn’t need), hot water, and keys to lock the doors for privacy. You also meet many fellow travelers here!

    Add Bangladesh to itinerary, it will be an unforgettable experience! Bangladeshis are loveliest people and helpful! Fab hostel and met fellow backpackers here to share trip costs and chat with. Joanna and Arnob were superb! Kind, caring and very helpful. They offer many tours (I did fab Old Dhaka (1600 tk) for guide, 27 hour Rocket Paddleboat Trip and 3 Day Boat Trip to/in Sundarbans 13,500tk) Golpata rooms are super clean, comfy beds, mos nets, hot water, free tea and coffee, near airport.

    This was a very nice and relaxing spot in the madness of Dhaka. I really enjoyed the breakfasts, cooking in their kitchens, and talking with the staff and other travellers. My only complaints would be: 1) it's hard to find, and 2) it's REALLY far from downtown (1.5-2 hours by Uber). I didn't even end up going to the old town. But it's got that nice backpacker vibe that makes it WAY better than a hotel downtown. And the neighbourhood that it's in is nice and worth exploring.

    Great place to stay if you want to be near the airport. The staff was friendly and helpful (they called an Uber for me). Nothing negative to say. This is simply a reliable place to stay, that delivers what it promises and, well, that's a huge plus in itself. Would recommend.

    Fabulous

    Arrived v.early 0300 (got uber using the free Wi-Fi at the airport just 20 mins,only 2£). Not so easy to find so try have google maps on, it’s in an apartment block. The lads working there were brilliant, helpful , flexible with breakfast times, clean room, let me have a late checkout and helped me get back to airport. Local area charming and quieter than old town.Take Tuktuk to town for an experience; it takes about 1.5h, but all transport seem slow in Dhaka . Would stay again for sure, .

    No party hostels in Dhaka, obviously. Quiet, family live-in hostel. Charming neighborhood 7km from airport. About twice that to downtown or what might be considered tourist area. 5 floors up with moderate view. Friendly, helpful staff. Security at building entrance but no real lockers in rooms. Accomodating kitchen and gas stove top. I appreciated the laundry tub and clothesline. No AC in any room I saw, but fans help. I got bit by a couple mosquitos at night.

    Extremely hard to find and far from everything. You’re basically staying in an apartment but it’s the only hostel I’ve heard of in Dhaka. The breakfast was nice but the owner was rude about the overuse of peanut butter. If I went back to Dhaka again I’d fine a hotel nearer to old Dhaka so it doesn’t take an hour or two to get there from this place.

    It was a useful place to stay for a couple of days. The staff were nice and we were able to work out some confusion over the price of the room ( I was the one who was wrong). They were very patient with me in the above situation. It is good if you want to be close to the airport or Gulshan but hard to find and hard to get an Uber from. It took me about 4 days to work out the area. Considering this and how hard it is to find it is quite expensive. I would stay again though if I needed to.

    The place itself is good. I was able to meet somebody to explore Dhaka with which is nice. The hostel is kinda close to the airport but really far from old Dhaka and all the tourist sites (plan about 2 hours IF the traffic is NOT to bad). There are no lockers at this place. In my opinion the price of 15$ is way to high especially for a bed in a dorm room. 5-8$ a night would make this a great place but I cannot recommend it for 15$. Go on Airbnb and you'll find privates for less.
