Mitra Hostel

Arambol beach, Arambol

Located in Arambol, 2.5 km from Querim Beach, Mitra Hostel provides accommodation with a restaurant, free private parking, a bar and a shared lounge. Providing a terrace, the property is located within 15 km of Tiracol Fort. The accommodation offers a 24-hour front desk, a shared kitchen and currency exchange for guests. I stayed here for 3 nights, and it was my best time in Goa. Deepak the host, really made me feel included in the group, and we gossiped and partied all night as if we all were friends meeting after long time. Met some really nice and amazing people here, everyone from different background, coming together and just purely enjoying :) Also, they have musical nights many times, where Aadi - the singer just takes you back in time singing some amazing bollywood songs. I just wish, if only I had known earlier about aarambol and mitra Hostel, I would have spent more time of my 15 days Goa trip here at Mitra Hostel.

The White Balcao

Fontainhas, Panaji

Situated in Panaji, within 2.1 km of River Cruise and 1.2 km of Immaculate Conception Church, The White Balcao features accommodation with free WiFi throughout the property. The property is located 1.6 km from Deltin Royale Casino, 2.2 km from Goa Medical College and 3.4 km from Mandovi River. Guests can have a drink at the snack bar.

Guests at the hostel can enjoy a vegetarian breakfast. At first I have difficulty in finding out the place, I have asked people around seems nobody knows maybe it is still new. A clear and bigger signboard would definitely help in locating it as it is hidden inside a small alley. As a matter of fact, it is well hidden to make it a quiet place to live in. The check in counter is also a cafe also which you can chill with your books and coffee and you will have your breakfast here also. It was just an very short 12 hours stay for me in a 8beds dormitory. It has its own shared bathroom which is big and clean and beautifully decorated. The place itself is tastefully decorated to maintain its Portuguese influences. It's prime location in the old Portugese quarter is great for photography lovers. Many food joints are nearby to have a a taste of Goan cuisine. All attractions are nearby and easily accessible by foot, 15 mins walk to bus station, 20 mins walk to the fish and vegetables markets and 20 mins bus ride to the old Goa. The breakfast is a highlight, 4 options available and big portion. It suits many Western stomachs. The Manager Fahad is extremely generous to help me out and give me a lift to old Goa and offered me dinner from his little kebab shop. If any chance you would like to visit old Panaji, White Balcao is the best choice and best value for money and location.

All the guys who help run it are fab. A really safe, clean and beautiful place that’s close to the beach and the market but also feels really private. Would recommend to anyone.
