    I stayed at Gostel for 8 days. The staff was quite co-operative and ready to help. Rooms were clean. Each bed is provided with good quality curtains if you required privacy. :P Easy to reach the place even with public transport. 5 mins walk to beach.

    'Gostel, a home for backpackers' is their tag line and it stands true to their hospitality and stay. Clean dorm, beautiful rooftop to hangout, friendly staff, and surrounded with like minded travellers. Location so perfect - beach, resturants and market near by.. it was great to be here. And I definitely recommend it to others.

    It's a great place to be when you have company there. Cleanliness needs to be improved and so is privacy like a private room is knocked and if not answered, staff may try to open the window. (Ignoring for I was alone). Overall experience has been good however improvements can always be made. Harsha provides genuine recommendations. Abhishek tries to entertain. The place is very close to palolem beach and 2kms from the bus stand (if you happen to go by bus)

    Location is good, budget friendly hostel, facilities are ok. Need to improve hygiene, washrooms needs to be more clean. Palolem Beach hardly 800mtr away

    The staff can be more friendly. For private rooms they should not expect guests to wear the bands as it really wouldn't affect the security. The deluxe room is below average and the staff needs to understand basics of talking to the guests and providing the room clean at check-in time. In our case the washroom was not clean at all, they had also not provided towels and forgot to hand us the room keys. They also tried to open the room window frm outside when v did not open d door after 1 knock.

    The most major concern was that there was black fungus and mould growing on the walls - it was so bad that we had to move the bed at night to be able to sleep since it's an actual health hazard. The bathroom sink and water jet was broken - this could be fixed in less than 100 rupees by any local plumber. The tiles looked unclean and the toilet had stains below the seat. Later at night we saw a cockroach as well. The surfaces are covered in dust. Just gross

    The Gostel asks you to pay additional 50% in advance which is non-refundable and also is against the cancellation policy of hostel-world. I booked a private room but bathroom and main door lock were not working but the staff did not even bother. The staff SHREE and ISHA are morons to say the least. Had to leave just in 2 days because they threatened to call the cops and did not even allow me to talk to the authority for negotiation. I lost 11k which is cruel af. Anyway, Gostel is a dead place.

    Didn’t stay there because of some booking error though none was claimed by website. Probably made a mishap on the booking and they didn’t even take responsibility for it.
