If you're travelling through Goa, stop by at Panjim! Panjim is totally different from the rest of Goa, leave alone India. Get a taste of the local Goan culture at our backpackers hostel located in the middle of the Portuguese heritage zone. Let us show you why the Portuguese stayed here 450 years (and why they threw a tantrum when they had to leave).

Excellent location, walking dictance from all the beautiful little streets of this heritage quarter. Super clean and convenient. Awesome coffee and breakfast. The place is quiet and the deco is really great. Nice place to meet people. Convenient shuttles to reach the beaches.

The architecture of the buildings is fantastic, the location is easy to find and close to sights around. The service, however, is quite mediocre. Most of the staff (except one person) doesn’t know what’s going on and can’t answer quite basic questions you would expect a hostel

Hey! Thanks for taking out time to leave us a review. We're sorry you didn't have the best experience here at Old Quarter. We've recently hired new staff at the café, and although they are locals here in Goa, they are not that well-versed with the hostel operations. About the internet, around the time you were staying at the hostel there was an issue with the service provider but that has now been taken care of. The single room lights have been replaced with new bright lights. And yes, the outside door is always open but the security guard at the reception takes a round of the building every hour making sure everything is in place. We hope you give us a chance to host you again and provide you a better experience. :)

Hey there - we don't offer airport pickups because of the complexity (delays / cancellations). However, there is a prepaid taxi service available at the Goa airport which is safe and reliable. Our reception closes at 8pm so our security guard will show you to your room if you arrive later in the night. See you soon!

Hi, I'm slightly confused by your question. Firstly, are you making the booking on the 28th of Feb? Secondly, where do you arrive? The airport?

You will arrive at aroudn 4,30 at the hostel, but at that time you cannot chek in. I think it is not a problem, you can check in the following morning and you can get the room as soon as you arrive, so that you can take a rest, In case, write an email to the staff!
