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

    This hostel was recommended to me by several of my friends who've stayed here before and it was as they had said it would be. Though I was here only for a day in a single private room, it was clean, secure & the coffee is great! I would love to come back soon!

    Lovely coffee shop with a lounge area downstairs and upstairs. Beds were comfortable and the drinks from the shop were great. WiFi was average and the upper dorm door was fairly easy for a stranger to walk in to, but the place had a safe and friendly atmosphere regardless Would happily stay again!

    I had a great, great time at the hostel. The staff was very welcoming, polite and patient. The interiors and the common area have my heart. The food was awesome! I owe them so much for making my solo travel a memorable one.

    Very clean hostel with awesome café and nice, helpful staff in a beautiful and quiet area of Panjim. Unfortunately there was no option of locking your dorm room / your valuables unless you had brought your own lock for a compartment under the bed. Also it was VERY hot in the ladies dorm, AC would be nice. :) Other than that I would always come back to this place!

    Very nice hostel in Panjim in a very good location. This hostel is like a mixture of a normal hostel inside a coffee shop, quite handy if you want a hot drink while relaxing. My only issue is that the furniture is pretty uncomfortable so not really an ideal hostel for chilling / relaxing for long periods of time. Maybe a bit too similar to a coffee shop in that respect. Other than that very clean and comfortable beds can't complain.

    Stayed for just one night to be a little bit closer to the airport after staying at Jungle first. Amazing facilities at this place, the small distance to the single rooms really isn't a big issue. For going out, Joseph's Bar is the place to be!

    The location was nice in Panjim and the café that was in the hostel was nice. Wifi here is pretty bad and sometimes nonexistent. Good for the price :)

    There was a cockroach infestation. I was only in my room for a few minutes, and found 10 cockroaches in that time. When I complained, the first reaction of the guy on the desk was to "Come back in the morning" - he seemed to think it was totally normal for someone to spend the night in a cockroach-infested room. Cockroaches were also spotted in the communal lobby, the showers, and another guest's room. TripAdvisor reviews showed previous cockroach complaints - this is a long-term problem.
