What a fabulous treat the Banyan Soul is. Nothing is too much for Sumit and his super friendly team 24/7. The Banyan Soul is true to its advertising promises. This is the place to chill your beans. Some great eating places nearby all with mixed menus. We will be back.

See, I like the place. The small hotel is packed away from the hustle and bustle in a small alley close to the Anjuna beach. Stayed 3 nights. The service is lazy. There is no phone in the room. Then, there is no food almost to order since they don't serve. The staff never cared to check for room cleaning....

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time for the review. I am sorry you had an unpleasant experience at our hotel. Our service is usually top drawer and you can see that from most of our other reviews. We shall however take your other feedback on board and try to do better. We do hope you give us another chance.

Comfy Budget stay at a calm secluded place with friendly staff. Google maps route is deceptive, but very close to German Bakery and 10 min drive to Curlies No kitchen, but they arrange food from outside.

The Banyan Soul in Goa was EXACTLY what we needed after 3 weeks in India!! After being on the move every 2-3 days it was great to temporarily lay down some roots at the Banyan Soul for a week. All the staff took care of us and the room was great! We definitely took advantage of the small terrace outside...

My friend and I stayed at the Soul for 4 days and had a wonderful time. A short walk to the beach (15 minutes) or rent a scooter for 5$ a day. Plenty of nightlife. The owner was extremely supportive and helped us to pay for the taxi to the airport, which would have been impossible due to India's crazy...

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...
