Excellent hotel for the price
This is the second time I am staying here. Very near to candolim Beach, Lot of restaurants, bistros, etc. The price is very very cheap. Staff are very polite, co-operative and helpful. The front office staff, Mr malfred attend the problems if any, then and there. The next time also I will stay here.

Best Hotel for the price
Superb hotel, Very very Clean, Calm and Pleasant. I Stayed here for 3 days and definitely come here after. The location on Candolim which is 4th beautiful beach in Asia which is not that much crowded like Calenguete beach which is nearby. The only thing is the Address of the hotel is not properly mentioned on any of the Websites which is very confusing. The Landmark should be clearly noted. Second thing is I stayed in 8 Bunk Premium Room with AC but the AC was not working properly when I Checked in and I requested the lady in the Reception about this but there was no response. The remaining guests who came from Europe, Argentina,etc said it was like this only for the past few days from their stay and on the First day Evening when another Gentleman came there to handle the Hotel and relieve the lady in the Reception and I complained about the AC and he immediately came to my room and rectified the problem within a few minutes. The other Reception handling person should also learn to handle this situation. Next the Locker alloted to me is with a brocken Lock which the Gentleman in the Reception told that it will be rectified in a couple of days. Finally the Flushout was not properly working in that room. Bearing these few the Hotel is an Excellent place to stay with a much lesser cost.

Backpacker panda was the first hostel I had stayed in, in seven weeks in India and it couldn't have been better. With a great location, fantastic staff, clean rooms and cheap beer backpacker panda was awesome. Not to mention cheap bicycle and moped hire and a great place to sit and socialise with great music. Would definitely recommend it to first time, solo and group travellers! Enjoy

Brilliant hostel
Nydelig beliggenhet, de har alt du trenger og rene og fine rom til å være et hostel. Det tar deg 2 minutter ned til stranda. Personalet er også behjelpelig med at du måtte trenge hjelp til. Skulle ønske de hadde matservering utover dagen og kvelden, ikke bare på morningen.
