    Best hostel I've been to in India. The curtains for each bed really make you feel like you have your own private space. The bar is really nice, it also has good food and is a great place to chill. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Thank you very much to everyone at Rainbow Hostels for an incredible week in Palolem! Can't recommend the hostel highly enough - great staff, great breakfast, clean rooms, comfortable beds which smelled nice. Loved the yoga with Ovi and met some great people. Stay here - you won't regret it.

    Best hostel in India! Super clean, with guards at night, yoga for those in need of that, great staff and Nice breakfast included. There's a bar area where Everyone hangs out all day, and Its very close to the beach. Maybe We got lucky with our group, but we had a great time, with great people.

    Top notch place, in fact the best hostel I've stayed in while in India so far! Nelson, his Japanese wife and their crew of workers, work hard to ensure you feel welcome/enjoy your stay! The hostel feels brand new and a bar/snack bar restaurant has just beer opened which even has Bira White on draft. The hostel is clean, beds comfy, staff friendly, there's a nice roof terrace and on site security at night. Hard to find fault to be honest and I stayed here about 10 nights in total. Recommended!
