Goa has become a go-to vacay spot for many because of the wide range of options it comes with, when it comes to partying, staying or exploring the state.

But whenever we chalk out our travel itinerary, one of the initial things to do, is to figure out our accommodation because that sets the mood for our entire trip! Booking hotels and renting bungalows are the usual ways of staying here. But if you're looking for an offbeat stay which would also fit your tight pockets, Goa has you covered!

A sprawling verdant space with a pool, fashioned into a hostel for easy-going explorers, here's why the Woke Hostel at Morjim-Ashwem, should be your next stop when in Goa.

What's Good?

The moment you step into this property, you'd why know why we're so obsessed with it. Woke's rooms are oh-so-inviting, which would totally make you laze around the whole day yet it's all so relaxing, that you'd want to step out and explore each bit here. They have 4 sea-facing dorms and an in-house cafe too but one of the major highlights would definitely be the attached balconies, with every room.

Planning on staying in for the day? Grab a seat by the pool with a drink in your hand, socialise with travellers from all around the globe or just make use of the free WiFi in the airy common rooms! Sounds awesome, right?!

They also have options of an all-female dormitory, mixed dorms and private rooms to make your stay comfortable and convenient; so be it a solo trip or a vacay with bae, Woke heeds to all of your needs.

Woke also offers a fully equipped kitchen, a craftily curated menu for your cravings and of course, the engaging aura around with diverse folks to keep you company, just makes it all better!

Knock Knock

Woke also hosts live music nights and their fully-stocked poolside bar, adds heaps to the charms of such evenings. BTW, if you're looking for activities to undertake, except for the regular beach trips, Woke folks will take care of that too.

So if you're planning on travelling to the party capital of India, anytime soon, you should keep the Woke Hostel in mind, while sorting your accommodation scenes.

This place will surely grow on you, like no other in this locality and we know, you'd be homesick the moment you check out of here. That is the kinda effect Woke Hostel has on us and we don't wanna be woken up from this feeling!
