People don't come here for facilities or because it has the best of every checklist that you can find while thinking of hostels. They do because they want to meet nice people, they like the warmth of a home, they want friendly people who genuinely take care of them. We do have all the essentials (and more) of a good hostel. But do not choose us if you evaluate a hostel based on its facilities rather than vibes or people. — Good vibes because this is not a business for us. It’s our home where we meet so many travellers — Cleanliness is super important for us — 10 minute walk from the beach. Arambol drum circle, sweet water lake, banyan tree, mountain view, surfing, awesome vegan restaurants, village flea market, hippie parties (that you won’t find on TripAdvisor or anywhere else) - all close to us — Wi-Fi that actually works. Our friends need to Skype with their dear ones back home. We understand — Some more good vibes from the universe — Neon room for partying at night

The price is quite good considering the quality of the hostel. They provide free WiFi, good showers and they have the nicest common area where I met some very aweasome people!! Spent 1 week over there in Jan/2019 and felt like 1 could easily spend a month :)

Amazing hostel with the sweetest hosts Kartik and Sourabh located in a special place. One of it's kind. Have to visit to experience the good vibes and come back like a second home. Nothing more to add.

There are no words with which I can explain my love for this place. The moment I entered I was greeted by ever smiling Kartik and he immediately made me feel safe. He gave a tour of the hostel and then guided me to my bunk bed. The hostel has a really great vibe. The first thing

Hey Gabrielle, sorry we're completely booked for 30th and 31st December. However we're getting so many requests. So we're planning to put up some cozy little tents. We will open bookings for tents in a bit. Same warm and cozy vibe of Happy Panda in a tent :) If you're up for some adventure, give us a week to open up bookings and put up some pictures.
