    Very lovely hostel situated in the old quarter of Panjim. Located near the bus station and close to many good restaurants. The cafe in the hostel is really good, their coffee is excellent and the breakfast was great too. Everything seemed clean and was comfortable. Only con is the wifi, it did not reach into our dorm room properly, or in some areas of the cafe too.

    Nice place, clean and comfortable ”

    The equipment is good. The only thing that one can regrets is that some rooms give directly to the common space of the caffee. The place is indeed also a small coffee shop. They could maybe manage a door at the first floor... so when leaving from the room to the toilet one does not appear in the shop.

    The stuff is great, the dorms are spartan at best. Invest in fans and better Beds with lights and privacy, The included breakfast is great. Water for 30r when it costs every else just 20r, is a rip off, specialy for a hostel.

    Really nice stay in old quarter”

    The room we got was huge and very clean. It’s a little old but that’s not an issue. Really comfortable stay. The breakfast the next morning was great addition. Location of the hostel is perfect. The room we stayed in was away from the main hostel but no issues for us. It was so good we stayed in the one in Palolem as well.

    I stayed in the private room which is in another building than the dorms and Cafe. Was not easy to meet people if that's what you're after. I work online and the room and the Cafe are good places to work from, around 5mbps. Would return again.

    Better than Average ”

    I stayed at Old Quarter for 5-nights, taking the deluxe room with balcony. Plus sides, the room was a very reasonable rate, the location in Panjim is excellent, right on the main road and there is a cafe on the ground floor. Due to the low cost I did not expect lavish accommodations. The bed is quite hard with a thin mattress and thinner pillows. There is no fridge nor kettle in the room. However the shower was very good and the balcony is quite lovely too. As hostel’s go this is better than average.

    excellent experience ”

    Stayed for a day, however the experience was great.. we arrived very early due to early flight. The girl at the reception let us checkin a lil early as the earlier guest had checked out. we stayed in the double deluxe room. The room was clean and the balcony was quite spacious to my surprise. If you're a couple you should stay in that room. Breakfast is on time and it's very basic. nice experience will stay again if I get a chance.

    The neighbourhood is quiet and nice to walk through for a stroll. The nearby grocery shops have all you need. The old quarter itself has super friendly and helpful staff. Dont miss out on their coffee which is the best I had in whole Goa and India. The place is great to meet other travelers. Breakfast is delicious and the whole place looks really nice.

    My first time with the hostel crowd was good. Check in time was 2:00 afternoon ( I arrived 9:00 am morning) but the staff got me early check in around 12:30 that was refiling because, I had long bus journey if they had any guest to lay-down chairs it could help. At breakfast if had more choice and simple like croissant, baked items that would i like to have it, rather then that i enjoyed my stay and i will recommend to my friends and me coming soon.

    + I had a great stay at old quarter. The staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. They sell, homemade snacks, fresh juice, coffee and all... Really good. The breakfast was a typical goan breakfast, but you also have a choice with an occidental one. The location is very nice as well, very peaceful. - The dorm is not decorated at all, it's just 2 beds of 2 one table and one chair in a 4 white walls... it miss something fun in it.
