    Friendly and Helpful staff. Prefer to stay here due to proximity to the beach yet away from the main bazaar.

    I came for the Beach at Palolem and stayed for the atmosphere, the staff and the people I met there. We had a great time cooking, playing games and drinking in the common area, celebrated Holi and even volunteered at the Animal Rescue Center together. They offer a cheap laundry Service, the lovely dogs will protect you on your way to the beach or one of the restaurants nearby. Special Thanks to Suman and Varun. I will definetly come back!

    Beautiful place. Love the vibe here. 5 dogs, 2 ducks keep you entertained even at odd hours. And the dogs even act as your personal security all the way to the beach and back. Roadhouse never disappoints. Thank you guys.

    The Hostel is very well kept and the overall ambience is great. The vibe that you get at a place like this is incredibly positive. The people you meet would stay in your memory for a long time. Lots of negative comments here have concentrated on the bedding, which I frankly found clean and very comfortable.

    Very Good

    11 Mar 2019
    This hostel is nice, but the common area was little uncomfortable for me. I always like to lie down in common area, but they just have a round table with sitting platforms. The staff told me that they don't allow to cook in the kitchen. The mattress was also a bit uncomfortable. On the positive side, it's more affordable than other hostels nearby, close to beach and bathrooms were alright.

    We had a pleasant stay here. Ambience and cleanliness is good here. The only negative point is, they don't provide complementary breakfast which is there if you book any other hotel stay. Other that this we stayed in room number 4. Washroom is very small. And this hostel is at main road so it's bit noisy in the day time. Other than this the surrounding is very beautiful.
