I am Swapnil More, owner the Hostel, in Alibaug, Maharashtra(India). Its basically a coconut themed hostel near the beach. ;)
Well, my property is located at a 10 mins walking distance from Nagaon Beach in Alibaug which has earned the name of Mini Goa over the years. Nagaon is located at 7 kms from main Alibaug City, which is again very close to big cities like Mumbai and Pune.
Our Hostel is a 2 storeyed building with 6 rooms rented out for tourists and travellers.
It consists of 2 six bed dorms and 4 private rooms, A common hall and a common kitchen is available on the ground floor. A hangout place and library on the roof and in the backyard. Its secured by CCTVs all over the common places and has a fast WiFi too. We have 24*️️️️️️️7 power back-up for all the rooms.
What adds taste to your stay is a beautiful backyard which is filled with all the coconut trees and hammocks. Dim light decorations all over the backyard with music going on creates a very cozy and laid-back ambience in the property. We have a huge common terrace too where we set up tents if anyone wants to stay under the sky.
The place is very safe and a popular getaway destination.
