The Bucket List Reviews

The Bucket List Goa is ideal for people who enjoy natural living and being outside in the fresh air. Organised around a spacious courtyard area, this place offers the widest variety of free time activities and an insight into the traditional architecture of this area.

The Location

The hostel is located halfway between Anjuna and Vagator, which means that if you stay here, you can enjoy both places and the beaches surrounding these two towns. It is best if you have your own transportation, but it is not necessary if you enjoy walking. The place is next door to a Western-style eatery and there are many souvenir shops and grocery shops that you can reach in ten minutes on foot.

Rooms and Bathrooms

All the rooms are located in stylish Goan huts. While these do not have thick walls, it is nice waking up to some fresh breezes entering the place in the morning, and thick blankets are provided so you won't be cold. The hostel has dorms of different sizes and there is a room for female travelers as well. All rooms are equipped with spacious lockers, but you will have to bring your own padlock. The bathroom is in a different space and it looks quite haphazardly made and does not have hot water but at least it is spacious and has a shelf to put your clothes on while you are having a shower.

Common Spaces

When it comes to common areas, this place is clearly a winner; spread out over a big courtyard, you have every facility you can think of -- in the middle of the courtyard is a bar, which also functions as a reception, and around this, there is a badminton court, table tennis, swinging bed, hammocks, and a grassy area as well, all this set amongst palm trees and beautiful flower bushes in bloom. Moreover, there is even a mini library outside. The only thing that is really missing is a kitchen and water dispenser.


All in all, Bucket List is an ideal place to hang out on a warm summer evening. Being here, you will be spoilt with choices of things to do. While the rooms offer slightly less comfort, they are a nice way to experience something authentic from the area.
