Amazing place to stay...Owners are nice and friendly..everything is just 10 min away and so is the anjuna beach...German bakery is a big attraction..When you go to Banyan soul you should just think of relaxing and having a nice time...Its not a place where you can expect the delicacies of the world because kitchen isn't their USP..they shut the kitchen...

We were initially due to stay for two nights but extended to 4 as we couldn't move where we had hoped due to the cash problems! Luckily the hotel owner was able to help us out in this regard also. The place clean and nicely set up, the WiFi is reasonable to. No complaints.

First things first...when we were about 5 mins from this hotel even the google maps got a bit confused since the way to this hotel is through a village with narrow lanes and big shrubs surrounding it. But let that not discourage since its kind of an adventure in itself. This hotel is absolutely away from the chaos and madness...

Its small yet beautiful, clean, peaceful and hygienic enough and near to the Anjuna beach. Its located a little inside but you will get a hang of it. The staff is very helpful but their action-response might be a little slow if you have requested for something they do not provide for. Do not expect something fancy but its worth...

A very peaceful and beautiful place. Very close to anjuna beach and all good restaurants. The staff is really helpful and the owner Sumit is always really welcoming. Comfortable beds and a beautiful garden to sit chill and read a book. Recommend to everyone travelling to Goa. I'm sure I'll be back soon.

PROS: Clean rooms, decent WIFI, hot showers, strong aircon. The staff were very helpful. Bavan on reception spoke great English, as did the owner Sumit, so they could give us great advice about the area. The other staff didn't always understand us if we were asking for something different to common questions but they clearly made a big effort so...
