Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Goa has become a go-to spot for those who crave to experience something not-so-regular, away from their usual lives. With a wide spread of options to choose from, you can come here to snorkel, sip on feni, socialise, party or for a beach therapy, amidst other things.

On the lines of offbeat places, Goa is a pot of gold because you’ll find something or other, according to everyone's preferences. Be it basking in hippie vibes or destressing midst loud music and booze, Goa will spoil you with choices.

What if we tell you that we’ve found a place which does both and is economical AF? A former Portuguese mansion fashioned into a hostel for explorers, here’s why the Jungle Hostel should be your next stop when in Goa.

Yoga, Pool & Beer!

We’ve chanced upon a dorm, located slightly off the main Vagator beach road and it’s surrounded by coconut trees which exude beachy tropical vibes.

When here, you can pick between private rooms when with bae or just go for the dorm when with the squad. It is all utterly economical- the bunk beds start at ₹450; you just got wide-eyed, right? The rooms come with air-conditioning (most of ‘em) and they also have mixed dorms too. So if you’re looking to explore your options when it comes to socializing *wink wink*, the Jungle Hostel will be your cupid!

They also have a fridge from where you can grab whatever you please and you gotta pay for it while checking out- simple right?

The Jungle Hostel also hosts yoga classes, musical events and other activities to keep you hooked during your stay and since the beach is just a stone-throw away, your options are limitless. They have stocked their bar with beers too so you can sit by the pool and chill out!

They also offer complimentary WiFi, multi-cuisine breakfasts, a fully equipped kitchen, lockers and of course, the kick-ass jungle aura around!

The Jungle Hostel also has its footprints in Panjim, Anjuna and Palolem so if you’re planning on moving, just grab their shuttle and shift.

Knock Knock

If you’re planning a vacay with bae or are finally implementing the legendary Goa plan which has been under-process for a long time now, The Jungle Hostel is your haven.

The low costs, accessibility and vibes here are enough to pull you in and trust us, it’s gonna be a vacay worth every penny you spend.
