“Always welcome!”

Sebastiana the host made our stay, and what a great place to meet fellow travellers. The majority of people like us came here from busy bustling Bombay, the chilled atmosphere is so relaxing after a long trip. The hostel is close to the restaurants and the beach is a beach short walk - motorbikes/scooters are a must if you're a thrill seeker. ;-)

Room Tip: A/C dorms fill up quite quickly so worth calling/booking ahead. Individual doubles/twins etc are al...

Sebastiana is the greatest hoste I had met in my trip to India,

The great family provide all the backpackers very laidback atmosphere when we staying with them.

The facilities is basic but fairly enough for the budget travellers, it is only working distance to the beach, small vendor and shops also nearby.

Goa is different from the other territory in India, most of the people here are Christian, Sebastiana cooked very good home dishes for me and made my trip in Goa superb as I don't like the food on the street.

Great hospitality manner.

Will stay there again.

All the wonderful things that everyone says are true. This is a wonderful place to stay. My partner and I were booked for 4 days and we ended up staying for 5. We would have stayed more if we could. I can't say enough amazing things about Evershine.

This is the second time I have stayed at Evershine. The first time was 3 years ago in a private room however this time I stayed in the Dorm for 10days. Sebastiana was as welcoming as ever. She really cares about her guests and knew everyone by their first names. She was great at introducing lone guests to each other however she always respected your privacy. I really enjoyed drinking chai with the other guests on her porch, listening to the birds sing and lazing in the hammocks. It has wifi and Sebastiana can help you with bookings of taxis, trains etc and hiring of bikes. She is always willing to give advise and is a very knowledgeable lady.

Evershine is about a 15mins walk from the beach meaning you could sleep easy at night away from the noise of the shacks but in easy distance of the beach. If you go down to the beach then check out Nikita shack where you can lie on a sun lounger without any hassle to constantly buy drinks. There are also some lovely places to eat nearby as well as a bar that plays two films each night on a large screen. If you are wanting noisy night life then Baga is only a Rs200 ride in a tuctuc away and your safe in the knowledge of a good night/day sleep to recover back at Evershine.

A bed in the dorm are cheap and normally have only 3/4 beds in a room. They have a fan and personal lookers. As a lone female traveler, I always felt safe here. I met people who stayed in the private rooms this year and they never had any complaints about these. I also found the private room very comfortable 3 years ago.

If you are looking for a place to meet fellow travelers and make friends then this is your place. If you want a quiet peaceful hideaway then this is also your place as Sebastiana will always respect your privacy.

This is the best place Ive stayed in whilst in India.
Thank you Sebastiana for making me feel so welcome.

Room Tip: The four bed dorm is cooler then the three bed dorm due to its higher roof

This place was okay, but definitely not worth the money. There are a lot of other places in the area closer to the beach that are much cheaper a night and seemed nicer. I think if I came back to Anjuna I would probably try out another spot.

Evershine is a guest house, not a hotel. The host and owner, Sebastiana (Bustu), is welcoming and wonderful. I spent a lot of time with her learning, laughing and simply enjoying myself. The overall atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable, the location ideal and the cool breeze and chirping birds makes this place exceptional. Unlike many other guest houses in the area they supply toilet paper and towels. They also provide excellent laundry service. One point of advice, if you want your room cleaned, just tell Sebastiana, otherwise they will not disturb you or your room without your permission.

Room Tip: The entrance to Sebastiana's house is where most of the guests gather, drink chai, eat biscuits...
