We booked our stay a day in advance and got thr booking confirmed. Once arriving (after a taxi drive for 500 rupees), the care taker simply told us that we can't stay as we are not Indians and that he didn't want to go to the police station to register us as it was too far for him. Once we asked why he even confirmed our booking then, he didn't have any answer. After we left, he even marked our booking as no-show. What a fraud!
Cancelled my booking without any notification. The person on call was very rude and refused to elaborate why they did this. I have booked about 200 stays from Booking and this has never happened ever. When I called them asking for explanation, they said that they are overbooked and can't take new bookings. Very unprofessional behaviour.
Clean rooms, good beds, quiet atmosphere. We planned to stay only one night, to get a nighttrain south. When we realized, that we had to go back to palolem, we told the owner that we gonna leave the same day and he gave us some money back without us asking for it. That‘s professional. Would come back for sure.
I stayed here for one night just bcoz zostel was full.. so i don't have much to write about it. but i had a good stay. the dorm are really clean.. there is graffitti on the walls of the hostel which are really cool.. sadly i dont have any photo of the place. Prajwal is a very nice guy who operates this place, he did gave me a discount too. they are still making some changes to the hostel place.. and since i was out in the night i got up bit late and asked him to give me some time to checkout.. he told me there are bookings so please do it early and i extended my checkout time by 30 to 45 mins.. which was really sweet of them. after i my check out i observed that there was a cafe which has hammocks.. nice cosy place it was.. do check out that place.
This was my very first solo trip and staying in this hostel made my trip more exciting. The prices are decent.. They have all the facilities that required for a traveller. The staff are very friendly, decent and helpful. It is located on a hill, and the view of the the sea during the sunset is the highlight.
