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.

    Superb

    23 Dec 2018
    I really enjoyed my stay at The Old Quarter. The vibe and coffee were excellent. I especially liked the upstairs lounge area which was a cross between an awesome coffee shop and a hostel. It also had a great location in Panjim and near several great restaurants. (I recommend Viva Panjim and Route, both very close by.) The staff also were friendly and made me feel very welcome. Good beds, big lockers, strong A/C, and hot water too. A great, homey place, in an off-the-beaten-path part of Goa. A+

    A nice hostel in Panjim. Less than 2 miles from the beach and quite a few places to eat nearby.

    Fabulous

    Was here for 2 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was tasty and filling. You'll need a padlock to secure your belongings in the cage under the bed. I'd stay here again.

    Very Good

    Stayed in a private room which is about 5 mins from the main hostel. The wifi there isn't great so be warned. Louisa was helpful with places to eat and the cafe was great. Location is also nice but Panjim is big and I found some nicer locations further away from the hostel down south. I also noticed the front door to the house with private rooms was always open and some woman walked into my room without knocking to give me a towel.
