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

    Really nice little place to start our first trip in India, the staff were really nice and helpful. I had some delayed luggage at the airport and they were really helpful in trying to get it back. The coffee area is also really nice to sit in and relax/sort out your plans. Would definitely recommend!

    The atmosphere at the hostel is very lively! People keep coming and going at the coffee shop. The beds in the dorms are clean and the Goan breakfast served in the morning tastes quite good. The location of the hostel is vey nice.

    Our stay at Old Quarters was awesome. We booked the double bedroom and wow, it was so much better than expected. The bedroom was clean and spacious, the bed was super comfy and the balcony is a great spot to sit back and relax. Especially when travelling from busy cities, it was great to sit out there at night and listen to the sounds of nature. The hostel itself is busy, it’s a lovely coffee shop with friendly, warming staff, the girl on the counter was so nice and helpful to our enquiries.

    Amazing staff (who helped us sort out Indian SIM cards) and great location. Good common area too in the coffee shop and above it. Soy milk also an option on the breakfast menu which was fab! Good lockers under beds for things. Only downside was the fan rooms were very warm and damp; bad smell especially in the mixed dorm.

    Lovely hostel, very nice decor. Not many bathrooms, could have had more ventilation. When we arrived, staff bit disorganised, room had rubbish and other people’s belongings even though we were four people booking a four bed dorm. Bit annoying that we couldn’t lock the door. Good coffee shop, good free breakfast.

    Ok so the hostel was good very clean, safe but no locks on doors for anyone that feels they need it... the head lady behind reception was not helpful and infact we seen her shouting at a customer becuse the customer was told not to turn the fan off in her room at checkin which she later 4forgot the result now is that the fan doesnt work at all 🤔 panji is gud for 1 day 2 tops unless your happy to pay 3500ruppes into the casios b4 u bet also there's a free walking tour but you have to pay min500r

    The actual hostel price per day is excellent value for money, but overall rooms and bathrooms are dirty, and could use a major re-haul. The dorm rooms do not have carded access (remain unlocked all times), so anyone (especially people who aren't even staying in the room) can just walk in at anytime, and there is zero privacy. On top of that, there is zero internet and phone connectivity inside the rooms, you need to leave the building to make phone calls, the on premise internet is very shaky.

    I’m not sure if my experience was different from everyone else’s, but here’s my honest review. The WiFi was not working for nearly the entirety of my stay. The hot water in my bathroom did not work. The AC in the AC room which I paid extra for, did not work. I woke up with 2 large fire ants crawling in my bed. The doors of the rooms have no locks on them. Need I say more?
