Weekend Getaway, Quick Getaways
What Makes It Awesome
For quick getaways to beachy Gokarna, the hostel's dorm rooms with bunk beds, community centre, and an opportunity to rub shoulders with like-minded backpackers are perfect. Along with dorms, comes quintessential Gokarna accommodation — private shacks. The dorms are all AC while the non-AC shack is ideal for couples and the likes who want a bit of privacy. Prices tend to change seasonally, the dorms can be booked for anywhere between INR 400 and INR 600, while the shacks cost INR 1,600 at peak times.
Located right on the hilltop, you get an excellent view of the surrounding beaches, the township below, and the Arabian Sea by the horizon. Chill by the hostel surroundings or loaf around in one of the many beaches. The common room is where you can either chill all by yourself or mingle with other backpackers. If you’re into yoga, then join the many people who’ll be practising yoga in the wee hours of the morning. Alternatively, sit by the beach and drink beer. Surely that counts as an activity.
The front desk can help you out with transportation, bike rentals, and where to head to for shopping and food.
