“Love Our Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

I would highly recommend Evershine to anyone who spends time in Anjuna. Close to the beach, right next to a great cafe, clean, and friendly. Most of all, the owner, Sebastiana, was so incredibly helpful. After leaving for a plane to Mumbai I realized I had left my passport at Evershine. Sebastiana went out of her way to track me down in Mumbai and find a way to return it to me before I had to fly back to the states 2 days later.

I absolutely loved our stay here at Evershine. I would have to agree with everyone else, that the owner, Sebastiana is one incredible woman. She makes you feel at home and helps you with whatever you need...literally. She bends over backwards to help you out and makes sure you are taken care of. She was like a perfect mom away from home. I loved how personal it was with her...we weren't just staying at any other hostel. We were always welcome and it was very comfortable! She arranged for taxis (one of the best drivers we had in India, by the way), scooters, transport of lost passports, did our laundry, etc. She is a one stop shop. Loved this hostel and our visit here! Stay with Evershine!

We had such a wonderful time at Evershine in Anjuna. Sebastiana, the sweet woman who runs the guesthouse, could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We loved spending time at the hostel and it had a great vibe and was really nice. Warm water showers, laundry service, scooters to rent-for SO cheap, the beach is a walk away...I wish we could have stayed another week. THANK YOU Sebastiana! I would recommend anyone to stay there...you will not be disappointed!

Evershine guest house can be one the best budget options for an all friends outing. Its just 10 minutes walk from Anjuna Beach and from some of the best hangout places like Curlies. Guest house is clean as well as Green. Hammocks and relaxing chairs are placed outside every room.

The interiors are ordinary with most basic accesories. But that is compensated by the superb hospitality of the owner, Sebastiana. she treats you like a family member, with great understanding of your likes and dislikes. I reached Goa a day before my other friends. I had booked a seat in dormitory there. Other seats of the dormitory were occupied by a group. She was quick to notice that neither I nor the other group was feeling comfortable. She immediately offered me a separate room without any extra charge. You cannot expect such warm and caring treatment from any other hotel or guet house in Goa.

I'll not recommend this place for family outing or for honey moon couples, but it's a pardise for backpackers.

This has to be the best budget accommodation in Anjuna and the owner, Sebastiana is what makes it the best. She is such a warm, loving person and she treats all her guests as extended members of her family (without being intrusive). If you need a hug, she gives you one; if you need to be left alone, you won't see her your entire stay. I stayed in a private room as well as a dorm room. Both rooms were clean and serviceable. Sebastiana will help you organise taxis, scooters and anything else she can. The nice atmosphere created by Sebastiana makes Evershine quite a social place and I met some great people here. This is great for backpackers and travellers who like to meet people.

The hostel is around a 10 minutes walk from the Anjuna beach. I stayed in a double room with a friend. The room was clean and all the accessories were functional. The owner hands over the keys and then the room is all yours until you leave. So you get your personal space. The owner can also help you hire bikes through her contacts, which saves you some work.
All the aforementioned stuff may be in most of the hostels, but the whole difference of Evershine is the owner. She goes out of her way to make us feel home. She introduces us to the other guests, so it is very easy to learn from the other guests about the places to visit, things to go etc. At times, you end up ordering Pizza and eat with other guests, just like a group of friends.
So I would definitely stay there, if I were to go to Goa again.

Evershine guesthouse has the nicest and warmest owner I've ever met. I walked in with no booking and Sebastiana (the owner) was kind enough to take me in. Right away she makes you feel at home with a welcome drink and introduces you to all the other travellers. It's the perfect place to relax, calm down and have a good time. The atmosphere is filled with love and laugher and Sebastiana and her lovely young cleaner Nigamma are always up for a good story telling. Instead of a few days, I ended up staying there almost month. The rooms and dorms are cosy and clean. If you consider going to Anjuna then don't miss out on Evershine guesthouse!
