Located at a central location this place is great for stay. Very close to the beach and the staff is very helpful. It is a complete value for money. I had left my watch there which was sent to me by the hostel staff through courier.

clean dorms, clean toilets, very helpful staff. Had a great time chilling with the owners and the others staying at the hostel. Met some great people. The hostel has lots of greenery around and the common area is a social hub where there is life throughout. I had a great time, mostly sent time in the hostel chilling and went to the beach which is 2 mins from the hostel. will surely come back for a longer time someday. Thankyou for letting me exchange the books from your library.

This is a nice guesthouse and Charlie and Madam are warm friendly and helpful. They arranged airport collection in the early hours of the morning and we're always happy to help when needed. Good value for money for people travelling on a budget.

cleanliness, helpfulness of staff, amenities in hostel. Big Ben, the owner (and the only Indian I've met with a Dublin accent) has gone overboard in his attempt to make this the perfect hostel. From his own experiences of travelling, he's tried to think of everything that the perfect hostel needs and has pretty much succeded. From the board games, free pool table and personal reading lights in the dorms to the nightly socialising with the guests and taking them to the local clubs, his heart has obviously been firmly entrenched into this place. It's a 'boutique' hostel with atmosphere, superbly stylish but home from home. Basically- it's a Five star hotel at a budget price. And it's got to be the cleanest place in the whole of India!

Like any hostel ought to be, Zostel has a friendly vibe with a large, nice common area and a Foosball table to get social around. The team makes it very convenient to get your laundry / bike rentals and any other requirements sorted very easily, so big ups to Zostel for getting the right stuff right. I chose the 8-bed male dorm and although i was a bit worried that it may get noisy or dirty, i was pleasantly surprised with a reasonably comfortable stay with minimal disturbance (like i said, it was peak season with music festivals all around - so i pardoned a couple of disturbances by fellow hostelers arriving late at night). Most importantly, the surface, sheets and bedding were all clean and comfortable. On Day 1, the washing machine pipe exhaust was leading to a flooding in the bathroom, but before i could complain about it, i saw that fixed the very next day and i thanked Abhinav profusely for it. Loos were reasonably clean too, given the traffic flow of guests. Facilities & Kitchen Another pleasant surprise was free tea / coffee and bread in the morning, without having to touch anything in the kitchen - that's not usually expected of hostels, but definitely welcome. Verdict When i'm in Goa next and looking for a stay option in and around Candolim, Zostel Goa is definitely going to be my #1 choice.

You'll fall in love with Zostel. Partly because its one of the most beautiful property you can hope to find anywhere - Goa or otherwise. But largely because of how comfortable Rahul and Dev make you feel. Within half a day we felt like we were staying with friends and taking liberties we simply wouldn't with anyone else. The rooms are beautifully appointed. Every piece of art, junket, painting or even the tiniest of lamps looks like it fits in perfectly. The sit outs and the courtyards open up to trees! A highly recommended hostel!

Very friendly staff who cannot do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Very basic accomodation but the friends you make while staying here more than make up for that. Travelling alone I arrived here. I was on my own for 1 hour until I met people here & then suddenyl there was a group of 27 of us hanging out & planning Xmas dinner together!

The owners and staff are absolutely lovely, there’s hot water, the location is good (as good as it can be – in case you haven’t heard yet, you need a motorbike and an international license to go anywhere in Goa) and working wifi. Our room and bathroom could definitely have used a scrub though and the bed was hard as stone (but that seems to be normal in Southern India)

The place was well located; not too loud, neither secluded. It had immediate access to the Vagator beach and Chapora fort. The staff was extremely welcoming and treated us like family; guiding us to Midnight Mass for Christmas Eve. The bathrooms are clean and the rooms have small personal balconies (ground floor) where you can sit and enjoy your breakfast. Really good filter coffee and omelettes.
