Awesome experience staying here. Friendly staff and nice, clean rooms and kitchen facilities. Overall Good ambiance and is located near to beach ,just a few metres.
We were a group of 5 and got room at affordable prices.
Probably the best place to stay in Goa if you are travelling solo or with a group...

We were a group of 9 friends that stayed here for 2 nights. If I have to describe my experience in one word - it will be "Excellent". The Candolim Beach is just few hundred meters away so you can walk whenever you want. The people at the reception are nice. Highly recommended....... More
Clean yet food service needs to improve
on Nov 6, 2017
Stayed for 3 nights in this hostel. Clean and comfortable stay, well situated to the beach. Only complaint would be the food service at the hostel. My friends and I ordered breakfast in the morning to be told an hour later the electricity had went, to hold on longer. After longer time we had to cancel our order, one of my friends only ordered a cup of tea and bar of chocolate! 🙈the communication was very disappointing from staff as we were on our way to our next destination with not time to waste.
To end on a positive, the bedrooms are clean and beds comfortable.... More

I only stayed here for one night, but I made a bunch of friends in the communal area and was joined by the staff and the guy who runs the whole place. All of them were very friendly and helpful. A great bunch to hangout with.
The 6- person bunk room was clean and I had no issues for the night that I spent here. I highly recommend this place.... More
Loved the place and the service

To be honest I came to backpacker panda for 2 days and extended for another 6. The reason was simple : the atmosphere and staff was excelent. The rooms were clean and the food was great but the best thing was the staff. They were helpful in more than one way. They provided me with the i information about all the activities and arranged a scooter for good price. My favorite staff member was actuall the cook. Yes you heard right you have a cook there who does one of the best omelets that I had. I think his name was Ravi. I asked him about some goan specialities in and the guy actually took me to the fish market in his spare time and made one of the best fish dishes that I had. Like I have been to a lot of hostels before but never had such service. For the next few days he showed me some sites in Goa and cooked some more dishes. Now that is what I call service.... More
