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

    I was sceptical at first about Booking this hostel for a week as I was there for a 2 weeks. First week I booked a bed in female dorm. The second week I got bed only in mixed dorm. So I cancelled my second week's booking and moved to a hotel near Mapusa where I was studying. Every day since my check-out from Old quarter hostel, I've been missing the coziness of the hostel and the beautiful streets of Panjim. That's how nice and pleasant my stay has been at this hostel. And yes I'm coming back!

    A great place to stay, location is quite convenient. Also, loved the fact that there's a coffee shop on the ground floor. Walkable distance to eateries and restaurants, etc.

    It was a pleasant stay overall, nothing was wrong. Just felt that there could be better linen even though it’s a hostel. Other than that, people are friendly, there’s a small coffee shop that’s quite useful if you want to work for a bit. Overall it was a positive experience!

    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.

    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 !

    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?
