Travelling is one of the best experiences one can have. The sights, sounds and interactions with people from various backgrounds adds to one’s perception of the world around them. Imagine a combination of a beautiful travel destination and a place where you can interact with people from various backgrounds?
If your answer is yes, then look no further. India’s most beautiful state Goa, has the best sights to offer as a travel destination. And if you want a pocket friendly stay along with the best and unique experience, consider staying at ‘The Hostel Crowd’.
The Hostel Crowd is a chain of hostels set up in Goa and Kerala, by a Goan Entrepreneur Jason Noronha.
These hostels are in no way the boring hostels that come to your mind. What makes ‘The Hostel Crowd’ so different? Each hostel has a unique theme that creates an enjoyable atmosphere. The hostel has an in-house transport system along with an array of activities one can try out. The hostels also feature a girls only dorm that will ensure the comfort of a female traveler. The four hostels in Goa are:
- Jungle: Situated at Vagator, stay in a place surrounded by the jungle. You can have a refreshing start to the day with a yoga session and chill out among the coconut grooves. The activities include visits to spice plantations, waterfalls, BBQ nights and rooftop movies.
- Prison: Visit the ‘Prison’ themed hostel at Anjuna, the perfect place to party. You can hop on a rented bike or take the party bus to the happening venues.
- Old Quarter: located in the Fontainhas, it derives the name and theme from the quaint Latin Quarter ‘Fontainhas’, where it is located. Experience Goa of a bygone era, away from the glamour of the nightlife and beaches of Goa. You can rent a bicycle and explore the capital city of Goa.
- Summer: Set on the clean and tourist free Palolem beach, a visit to this summer themed hostel will give you a different Goan Vibe. Explore the different beaches close by and indulge in adventure activities to explore the hinterlands of the state.
Another hostel located on the coastline of ‘God’s Own Country’- Kerala- follows the ‘Maritime’ theme. Check out The Hostel Crowd website to know more!
