Located only blocks away from downtown Panaji, this cozy, clean and quiet hostel will make you feel at home. Don't miss their delicious Goan Bread for breakfast.

Friendly place to stay Apr 21, 2008
This is a very good place to stay while in Panaji. It's a good value room. The place is 10 min walk from downtown, close to taxis, bus stop and the owner's are very friendly (they speak either English and Portuguese!!)
The minimum stay is 2 nights, what may not be good if you're just making a stop on the way to the beaches. One night costs 700 rps / double room/ non AC / western bathroom with hot water. If you're lucky and the guesthouse is not full, maybe you can negotiate a night for the price of 1 and 1/2 :)
They provide sheets but no towels or toilet paper ...so carry your own.
Everything is extremely clean and the rooms are comfortable. If you can't deal with the heat, you better ask for an AC room (or be ready to be seating all night...)
They can do your laundry and keep your backpacks secured (in the backyard!!) if you wish to leave later.
There's no breakfast, even if you want to pay for it.
I would definately stay here again, if travelling on a budget :)
