A home away from home, with clean rooms, nice breakfast and super-helpful staff. Stayed there for a week, doing a bit of remote work once on a while. Chose this charming location, to try to get to know the soul of Goa, from one of its heritage prides - Fontainhas. And this hostel gave me exactly that - a good unpolluted taste of Goan culture. Except for the weekend partygoers coming to visit the casinos nearby, the vibe you get from here is so calm and peaceful. Thank You for the lovely stay!

Don't go for the dorm on the ground floor. No ventilation, No air conditioning. SUFFOCATING! No parking in the premises. No speaking on phone outside the property. ( Apparently the neighbors are snarky) . Good decor and decent breakfast. Other than that such a big let down. Won't be staying here again.
