    Me and my friends absolutely loved our stay and everything about this hostel. Favorite one in India so far. Breakfast is amazing, comfortable accommodation, great common room and has a great atmosphere. Bea the manager was an absolute gem to us, helped us out so much with advice and all our request. She really runs the hostel so well and creates the best experience for the guest. Thank you for being so awesome!

    Our time at Summer was amazing we felt like family. Bea the manager was such an amazing host, she planned all our future itinerary and took us to the travel agent to help book trains. There was events organised to mingle with all the guests, and even though it is out of season at the moment, summer is the place to be a you will have a great time in Goa if you’re there. Breakfast was so filling and can have as much as you want, and free water refills is a bonus. Thank you bea and everyone summer❤

    Really enjoyed my stay at hostel. Good location for the beach and restaurants. Nice common area upstairs and a lovely cafe downstairs. The breakfast was good, the Samosas were amazing. Bea was a lovely manager and host. Bea Interacted with all the guests and was very helpful when it came to future travel plans. She even went out of her way to take us to the travel agents to sort our transportation and helped us organise bikes. I will definitely be returning to this hostel in high season

    Three of us stayed at Summer for four nights and loved it! Super close to the beach, lovely staff, amazing breakfast and a fun place to stay. The manager, Bea, was helpful, friendly and inclusive. She planned many activities ie. nights out, kayaking, local volunteering and she’s always around to help ya out! The rooms and washrooms were very clean. We met some other fun travellers there and had a blast!

    Have stayed in a deluxe mixed 6 dorm.. Room is clean and washrooms are surprisingly very tidy👌.. Hot water 👍👍 Has good storage capacity under the bed.. Need to bring own lock for storage, otherwise can be bought for 50/-.... Breakfast was good menu included toast, eggs (fried and boiled), banana, oats, beverages (coffee and tea) and seasonal fruits... About 500m from the beach and closer to many good restaurants... To rent a bike go to SEEMA'S which is again at a walkable distance from hostel

    I was here for 3 days, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED my stay. The entire staff was friendly, and a special shoutout to Bea the manager, who made sure we all had a good time, stayed involved with us for various activities, and was just an energetic presence everyone enjoyed. I also met some very nice people, and it's likely that whoever is staying here will as well, given the location and popularity. And it was so cheap! I may just sell my stuff and move here, it's far cheaper than my rent lol!

    A fantastic stay at Summer!! A special mention for the manager Bea. Thank you! The hostel was well located and clean and was a great base to enjoy Palolem. Bea was always on hand for any help and advice as well as arranging fantastic daily activities. I would highly recommend Summer to all travellers who wish to have a good time in a comfortable hostel with a fantastic manager!

    Loved the hospitality and the help from everyone there. Very polite staff and the complimentary breakfast in the morning assured a great start to the day. The dorms and bathrooms were clean and hygienic. Loved the stay.

    Staying at this hostel was immensely disappointing. The photos that depict summer hostel are very deceiving, the chill out area has got absolutely no atmosphere and the cushions of the chairs have dirt all over them and look as if they haven’t been cleaned in a very long time. However worst of all we booked a mix dorm that specially says en-suit, yet when we arrived we realised our dorm of 6 was sharing one toilet and shower with another dorm?
