    Very dull ambience. The ambience gives a lot of negative vibes. ”

    One out of 2 dull only lamps in the room dosent work and no one is bothered to look into after multiple reminders. The pool is out of service. At night you can completely see nothing for the dim lights in the room. If you're a bright person then this place is dreadful to you.

    If you are the Ian Wright type rough guide to the lonely planet yet not a camper hitch hiker who likes to explore & not lounge around in the luxury of another room all artificial - a person who likes to take own decisions & is on the go unplanned and free then this is the place for you. You gotta be young at heart although they do have a rather discriminatory policy of a 35 yr old cap(which is odd).

    will absolutely never recommend”

    We had a very difficult time , we had to change our hotel the very next day. there was no electricity in the hostel. Rooms ALLOCATED TO US were in another building which was never mentioned and there was no staff to connect with. nobody was there to answer the call at the main reception. The amount we paid was equivalent to a 3 or a 5 star hotel , The only thing we were ok with that they had refunded the amount for 2 other night as it was booked for 3 nights. VERY VERY VERY BAD EXPERIENCE , rather worst experience. Will never recommend this, as we faced lot of issues and we had to change our entire schedule .

    Good location for our needs ”

    We stayed to attend the sunburn music festival and booked a private room. Private rooms are located separate from main hostel. Power was out for a large amount of our stay which was no fault of the property as it was out throughout the town however there was limited battery power leading to full darkness when trying to find your room and climb up stairs in the dark. AC worked well, and location fairly quiet. Located close to the mango tree restaurant which was very good.

Talk. Share and leave behind a part of the soul...and take away lot. Breakfast is free...so that's good. Hahah.. Sadly the pool is shut because of some issues....but..!! Beach is just 7min walk.

    The rooms are clean, prices are good, have everything you may need... Could be a hub for you in Goa for like 3-5 days stay. You should book this, I have done a lot research for my stay in Goa and eventually concluded with booking here. I'm very pleased and will definitely consider coming here if I'm doing a trip with my partner. Suggestion for travelers : Do try to book resort for your last leg of the trip on the beach... You will be pleasant end to Goa trip

    Great place, really friendly and helpful staff and the pool is just amazing. I really enjoyed my stay at the jungle and the people there are just amazing. I made friends easily. Good, authentic and friendly vibe. Also good to know: Yogis can join a yoga course daily on a donation base, which is just great and exactly the yogic thought.

    Don't stay here if you need any help or anything”

    Staff is unclear of bookings, despite having computer at desk. Security guy doesn't feel any courtesy towards guests - at times felt he cares only if you are foreigner. He doesn't give a damn for a single second if you make any request for help. On the other hand, staff only cares about payment. I paid for laundry at 10am and got asked by them 3 times every hour by different staff people if I have paid or not. And worst thing is when I have to travel by late night, my laundry was done late in evening - basically packed all wet clothes. Despite having rooms or beds available, which I got to know from one of the staff members, I was not allowed to move into another bed. Worst thing is the guy at breakfast counting your food, when breakfast is mentioned complementary. Easily, the staff and people here don't care of brown skin guys.

    Worst experience ever! ”

    I’m usually not the one to write negative reviews unless I’ve had the worst possible experience. And my interaction with jungle was beyond worse. We reached the hostel at 12 am after a long day of work and travel only to know that they had messed up the bookings and my friend and I had no place to stay. They didn’t do much to help us either. Made us wait till 2 am only to put us up temporarily at the dingiest room ever. The room was not cleaned, the a/c wasn’t working, there were cigarettes lying around in the room. We were just 2 girls waiting in the middle of the night for these guys to figure out how they messed up. The next day, they didn’t even try to mend things, we were just asked if we wanted a refund and we were more than happy to leave this place. What a nightmare that was. It’s been over 10 days and the staff has not responded to us reaching out for the refund. Nobody even cares to make sure we at-least get the refund after such a terrible experience. Worst hospitality I’ve ever seen. Such a huge disappointment. Never coming here again, nor will I recommend anyone to come here. Terrible experience.

    Stayed for the third time.. it's nice but safety needs to be beefed up. ”

    Four of us stayed at the hostel, this time in the standard double room. Everything was satisfactory barring the phone that was lost from inside the room! Yes, we are sure when we say that the phone was lost from inside the room. Nor burglary or any other nuisance just the phone was lost. The CCTVs weren't working so didn't get any info whatsoever. Anybody and everybody walks in at night inside the hostel (including intoxicated people who do not live in the hostel)which isn't so desired. Yes, the food, location, pool and staff are all nice but security is not something should be compromised on. We will come back but it's nice to have some things fixed sooner than later.

    Not as described online. Scorching Hot!”

    I booked an a/c room and when I arrived they put me in a room which had just a fan. The heat was unbearable and I asked to be moved and they didn't have a a/c dorm room with an a/c, just fans. Book online with caution, what they advertised online isn't really what they have to offer. Be wary. They also had a pool, but the entire time I was there it was closed. The breakfast was super thrown together, with some meal options only available on certain days. The food and drinks were overpriced. There are cheaper a/c dorm rooms available for half the price down the road, do you research!
