Chill during the day with yoga, walking tours, cycle tours, badminton challenge, table tennis game, books to read on hammocks and socialising before setting yourself up to earn a FREE T SHIRT by drinking 9 beers and 3 shots in the huge outdoor bar. The multilingual friendly bar staff will make The Bucket List Beer Challenge easy, with bar games and live music happening long into the night. The Bucket List Beer Challenge has had over 750+ guests participating, but we only have 33 winners so far. Not everyone is a born legend!

Our aim is to promote the local beer/alcohol and make you experience Goa in an authentic way. This hostel is not for LUXURY SEEKERS but for MEMORY MAKERS.

Whilst the bar is the heart of the hostel, the dorms will not disappoint. Individual bamboo cabins are nestled within the jungle garden and are equipped with fans (Sustainability) with high speed WiFi and comfortable beds, allowing you to immerse yourself in the natural environment whilst enjoying a restful sleep. We also have one AC ensuite dorm which is sold out on most of the days. The private rooms are like no other hostels ever before. We offer you an entire apartment with swimming pool, kitchen, gym (Limited to only private room guests) for the price of a room and hence its always on demand.

I hate to give less rating but the place isn’t clean. It’s not as comfortable either to sit outside. Beds shake heavily when you toss in sleep. This place needs renovation. Staff is amazing and very friendly Atmosphere is great to meet people. Music played is very good
