Banyan soul is pretty close to the Anjuna beach (walking distance) and right next to German Bakery which is awesome. The owner and staff are very nice. Rooms are clean and cozy, though room service is not available. Rates are very attractive. Overall, much recommended in Anjuna.

This was my second visit to banyan soul and I am very much satisfied as before. It is the same no frills hotel with a peaceful and cosy atmosphere. Best part is the rates which were still reasonable when everything in Goa was offered for more than double cost during an extended weekend in October. Just a short walk from... More

One of my favourite spots to stay in goa. It's economical, close to Anjuna and Vagator and the owner is always happy to help no matter where he is. The rooms are simple and clean and so are the toilets. There isn't any room service but free wi fi kinda seals the deal. It's the perfect spot for trips where... More

Great staff and lovely simple decor. Right near german bakery which is ace. Walking distance from anjuna wednesday market which is fun but very hectic in terms of hard sellers. Well recommended. Walking distance from beach. Hard to find though.

My partner and I were feeling run down from a stressful couple of weeks in Karnataka, and this was a perfect refresher. Clean and very peaceful. No restaurant but we made nightly use of the delivery flyers in the room and were very happy with that. Only 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Highly recommend :)

Nice homely place. If your idea is to chill and relax...this is a perfect place. Clean and nicely maintained. No interference from hotel staff and u feel u r at home. Only drawback - no restaurant. No not even basic tea/coffee. However, the German Bakery is just next doors and it's a nice place to have breakfast and generally chill.... More

Was looking for a peaceful hideaway for a short vacation with my spouse. We chose The Banyan Soul in Anjuna because of its location. Nicely private, at the same time very close to all the action points in Anjuna. Very efficient staff, clean and tidy rooms and just the right amount of comfort. Don't expect luxury but just efficient comfort... More
