Budget Vacay To Goa? Pick This Hostel With Dogs, Hammocks And More


    If you’re a backpacker or a solo traveller heading to Goa anytime soon, Pappi Chulo in Vagator is the hostel you need to book your stay at. It’s colourful, affordable and a great place to meet fellow travellers.

    What Makes It Awesome

    Pappi Chulo gives you the vibes of a free spirited traveller. It’s the perfect place for backpackers and budget travellers. There is a table tennis and foos-ball table. It gives you a true glimpse into the carefree Goan communal lifestyle that people travel to from all over the world just to experience. 

    If you care about aesthetic, art covers all the buildings and the rooms. The beds are comfy, the water is hot and the sweetest women always keep the space clean.

    There’s a huge common area, with a swing and hammocks all set up in a way that you can either meet new people or curl up with a book just by yourself. Oh, and there's a cute coffee shop too. 

    The beds in dorms start at INR 400 a night while the rooms are priced at INR 1.5k upwards. Laundry and meals will be taken care of, with additional charge. Every now and then, they get together to host fun evenings with games, drinks, gigs and workshops. They're even big on celebrating local festivals to foster a true community feeling and give the guests a home-like experience. 


    To make things super easy, the folks at the hostel have an appointment facility on their Facebook page, through which you can schedule a call with them to confirm/check booking options.
