Property Description

Panjim is totally different from the rest of Goa, leave alone India. Get a taste of the local Goan culture at our backpackers hostel located in the middle of the Portuguese heritage zone. Let us show you why the Portuguese stayed here 450 years (and why they threw a tantrum when they had to leave).

There are serveral room types available for you to choose from: Deluxe double room, 4 bed female dormitory rooms, 4 bed mixed dormitory room and so on.

Things to do
- explore India's smallest capital city on a bicycle
- visit the World Heritage Churches of Old Goa
- take a boat ride through the Salim Ali bird sanctuary
- get your game on at a boat casino
- experience a wide range of affordable fine dining

Old Quarter consists of 2 building located within the Portuguese heritage zone. The main building hosts the reception, cafe, dorms and deluxe rooms. The rest of our rooms are located 250m away from the main building in a 200 year old house that is equipped with wi-fi, hot water and a common room.

Please note that December 22nd - Jan 2nd is the busiest time in the year due to many parties and events happening in the area (including a Christmas dinner and NYE party organised by the hostel). We will be collecting payments in advance for bookings in this period. View House Rules

    Quite an amazing and wholesome experience. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Completely safe for female solo travellers. The location and the breakfast was cherry on the top.

    I was there just for one day and firstly due to technical issues my booking was not confirmed so they ungraded my accommodation from non-AC common dorm to AC common dorm. Location wise it's in a Prime area walkable distance from the Panjim bus stand and the near by location are all in walk distance. Take a bicycle on rent ow walk the heritage colony. I would love to visit and stay again.

    Amazing place, amazing location and staff. The only feedback is probably the number of toilets can be made to 4 from 2. This is the 2nd time I stayed at Old Quarters and will be my first option when I'm at Panjim.

    A really beautiful hostel combining the quirkiness of a coffee shop. The staff were really helpful with advice on places to go and arranging moped hire and the breakfast was nice. My only negative was the lack of social side to the hostel.

    Perfect place for spending one night in Panjim at a (very) cheap price. Otherwise I don't advise this place for someone who would like to spend good time overthere. No real wall between the coridor and the bedroom, only two bathrooms for 4 dormitories , a "security guard" during the night who even doesn't pay attention to you when you enter in the place (what a safety place !), passeport kept during the stay etc. The place which seems to use to be a good place, needs now a real refreshment !

    Not an ideal stay. Extra night pair for so I could check in early as check in is at 2pm and I arrived at 5am. Security guard was asleep/very unhelpful and told me I had to wait for reception. Two other staff members arrived around 9am and also told me I needed to wait. Was finally checked in by 10 (5hours later). Also not a good hostel to meet people as no common area (just a coffee shop). Shuttle to vagator also didn’t run even tho I checked the day before it would. I found a bedbug in my room.
