    Stay was supercool and superfun. It was my first time experience staying in hostel and I made correct choice by selecting bucketlist hostel. Staff members are very friendly. Food is also best. Rooms are comfortable enough to sleep. Atmosphere is also best. We can even have small party inside hostel itself. Variety of drinks available. Overall it was an awesome experience. Thanks to rahul and his team for all the facilities!

    When It comes to stay outside your own sweet home, the 1st things I would want is a clean restroom!! And this hostel nailed it. The female dormitory was spacious enough with Clean washrooms and clean rooms, a bargain for its location and hygiene. Shoutout to Rahul for being such a great host. The whole place is pretty chilled out. The food was lip smacking. The best part is one gets to meet other hosteliers coming from all walks of life and share experiences and stories with each other.

    One of the best hostels I have ever visited. I came for a single night stay, but continued for more days because of the good vibes and good people. The hosts were awesome and will make a great atmosphere. I recommend this for solo travelers who want to meet people, have fun and party .

    My friend and I had a WONDERFUL STAY at The Bucket List. The staff (Prianca and Sandy especially) were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The common areas are great for chilling during the day and for socializing/enjoying the bar at night (aka: dancing on top of it if that's your thing). The location is great - walking distance to multiple beaches and shops/etc. There's a corner store and restaurant nearby for anything you can't get at the hostel. Thanks for a great stay! We'll be back!!

    This hostel is located at walkable distance from various beaches / restaurants. I was traveling solo but did not feel bored or alone at any point. The recommendations the hosts provided were on point. They were very friendly, helpful and fun to hang around with. The common area is chill and everybody I met here was warm and welcoming. I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend this place to everyone who is looking out for a good hostel. Will keep coming again!

    GREAT TIME at Bucket List Goa. The hosts Sandhya, Rahul, and Ashwin made it a true pleasure. I made friends, planned out the rest of my India journey, partied, and got setup for my Kerala visit. Def recommend if you’re looking for a fun vibe hostel. I stayed in the private room w/ A/C.

    Very Good

    The private rooms are across the street from the main hostel. Great atmosphere in the hostel. The hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Scooties were available on rent at a good price. The rooms were clean and decently priced- it had all amenities described. The property was very close to vagator hotspots. Few improvements I would suggest - food was overpriced, freezer was dirty and geyzer was not working properly.

    The hostel was very shabby and not maintained properly. Bathrooms were almost not usable. Vibe was good enough but not worth the amount they charged us. The prices were hiked online and people who walked in directly were charged way lesser.
