We Provide you with enough hooks to hang your worries and enjoy the time here. Our goal is to make you feel home away from home with our unique facilities in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. In our huge garden with loads of space to relax and chill, we always have a fridge full of beer to serve to our lost souls.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Jay, Deep and the rest of the staff are incredibly welcoming and treat you like family. The property is well set up so it's easy to spend all day hanging out, which is why we stayed over a week despite having originally booked only two nights. Events are organized spontaneously to fit the mood of the crowd, so nobody feels left out. Will definitely come back the next time I'm in Goa!

    The Lost Hostel was great! Really nice managers! Every time I needed help they were there for me. The people that come to that hostel are real backpackers and you can meat there great peop from all over the world. The hostel is not lactated at the center of the palolem market, so it’s really nice and quiet. There is a kitchenette you can cook for yourself if you would want

    This was my second stay with the lost hostel. I stayed with them in Varkala, Kerala and now in Palolem, Goa Managers are friendly. Manish helped a lot in suggesting the places nearby to visit and good cafes. Hostel is just 5 minutes walking distance towards the beach Many restaurants near by Huge hangout area for so many people All i want to say is that this place is amazing for every traveller visiting Palolem, Goa

    Pros: Great vibe, friendly staff and clean environment. Great place to chill, drink and smoke with friends. Really good restaurants nearby. Palolem beach s awesome. It’s a very calm and chilled out area in comparison to the rush in north goa. Cons: Nearest ATM is really far! No petrol bunk nearby, only scammers selling petrol in bottles for twice the rate. Don’t think about visiting north Goa or any places in north, it’s minimum 2.5 hours away. Can’t buy anything without bargaining.

    Hostel was really nice with the friendliest staff and a great atmosphere. Dorms were also really nice with good bathrooms and plenty of fans. There were a few downsides in that we used the laundry service and our clothes ended up smelling quite bad which kinda defeats the point. Most of the common area was out with all the mozzies (which would be great if there were a couple of fans to move the air around) and the WiFi didn’t actually reach our dorm.

    It was ok. Felt the rooms were not very clean. Virtually no security but the area feels safe. The hosts/managers seemed somewhat inattentive/inexperienced. I gave one of them my laundry the afternoon I arrived, when I asked about it the next day, it hadn’t been touched, and I was informed it might not be done for another day or two. I was forced to take it to a place nearby which charged 3x the price.
