Goa On A Budget? Check Out These 4 Hostels Where Prices Start As Low As INR 99

What Is It?

All of you looking at making that Goan holiday on a budget a reality {especially the accommodation bit} can now breathe a sigh of relief. We’ve found hostels all across Goa, ranging from simple basic ones to slightly fancier versions with key-cards and air-conditioning. Check out there stays now so that you can spend more on beers than the beds.

That Crazy Hostel

That Crazy Hostel is a very apt name for this one that is located in Anjuna, thanks to it’s electronic entry for all dorms, air-conditioning and even crazier promotional prices such as at INR 99 upwards per bed. Yes you heard us right, this is the rate for the next few months. Not to mention an inflatable dip pool, a bonfire set up, a bar with over 100 cocktails {at a great price}, a library that uses old refrigerators to hold the books, a wash basin made out of an old scooter or bar stools made out of tyres. They pretty much have recycled a lot of things, except for their mattresses, which are new, soft and comfy. This colourful and cheery vibe, coupled with that field view make it irresistible. The only downside would be the fact that they insist on even Indians carrying their passport for identification.

Back2Basics

The B2B or Back2Basics Hostel in Morjim, is for those that want to be away from the madness and just get back to a simpler way of life. Made of mats and bamboos, this all-natural elements hostel is the new hotspot for all you bunk bed maniacs. A small café that will come up soon, live music, separate girls dorms, attached loos to each dorm are some of the other features available here. Their rates start at INR 500 upwards, and did we mention that they are just a two-minute walk from the Morjim beach? Not to forget, the host Clint is sure to point you in the right direction to all the party places around, or maybe even accompany you there.

Old Quarter

The Old Quarter so named, since it is located in the Oldest Latin Quarter of Asia called Fontainhas in Panjim. So not only do you get to stay in a beautiful surrounding, with old quaint and colourful buildings, but live in one that is 200 years old itself. You can even hang out at their Cafe which also doubles up as a co-working space, so meet a lot of travellers, as well as peeps from Goa who work out of there, exchange stories over a cup of coffee or a beer. They have dorms, as well as private rooms with Wi-Fi, Hot Water, plus breakfast and even bicycles on rent and with rates starting at INR 400 and upwards for a bed.You can check here for more details about this hostel which has beautiful painted tiles adorning one wall of the main building.

Forest Monk Hostel

The Forest Monk Hostel is located in Vagator, and is just lovely with it’s Tibetan flags and other decor all over the hostel. Not to mention, it has the Tibetan Kitchen restaurant for when you want those momos or other Tibetan delicacies, it is open pretty much all day from 9am till 10.30pm. They even have a private cottage for two, or 6-bed and 21-bed dorms. Their bar, again, is well-stocked and their rates start from INR 600.
