    Welcome people !!!!

    What are we doing here?

    We have been visiting Goa for a long time, but the last few years made us choose to move here,
    I loved hosting a lot of people as I am very curious about different cultures and traditions and lifestyles. This curiosity made me and similarly my team travel a bit, more we met people the idea got stronger and we curated the idea of “ a Space where the essence of hosting and cultural exchange is the key ingredient, with sharing and learning along the journey.” The hostel was born.

    Location: it's located in ARAMBOL village of north goa, India.
    Our space is 200 metres from the beach which allows us to do all this in a perfect coastal space, Arambol has a very unique type of traveller,
    Mainly the old Hippie traveller now turned this village into hosting digital nomads, aspiring yoga and health lovers, unlimited Musicians and live concerts, and countless workshop for all types of travellers and interests. Which makes it the best coral for travellers where the sync of art and culture is mindblowing.

    That was last year, we set foot and we learned to stand, this season we wish to walk,
    this year's volunteer program would consist of a lot of creativity and management,
    this year's primary focus will be to host and organise as many workshops in the field of art, music and skill development,

    more details are provided below.

    Let's first meet the team

    Team of hostel

    It's a collective of like-minded, stupid, little crazy, adventurous, loving, caring young people, or we can say a family by choice.

    Here you will meet (Core Team)

    1: Share

    Sufi is the head of digital marketing, Social awareness, Concept and talented percussionist ……. Well, he curated this idea in simple words.
    He is co-founder of a handcrafted bags brand and moved to goa to live a more meaningful life. The brain behind the hostel. Very Friendly and stimulated with an intellectual talk on any topic. The family wouldn't be possible with the dynamics of SUFI. a dreamer who brings the dream to reality, nothing is too small or big and that’s what makes him an avid learner and an amazing leader.

    2: Somendra
    Aka, SOM-SA
    26, Udaipur, Rajasthan India
    Project Manager (Goa)
    One can see the diversity in the talent of SOM just by the titles he holds.
    Friend for a long time and now an essential member of the team. A talented writer that makes people start to think, and an efficient manager when out in the field, this diversity helps him to handle different departments of the hostel. Great team member and a reflection of a superb leader.
    He will be heading the project in Goa this year and would lead your way and will be the first to meet when you reach there.

    3: Ramesh
    26, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India
    Head of Housekeeping, Estate Manager,
    Core team chef and most amazing soul on the planet.
    He was working in the office next to ours 4 years ago, He takes care of all the people who take care of the Space. The most amazing soul, pure at heart, comes from a village and you can see the culture of Rajasthan hospitality embedded in him. Calm as a cow and hardworking as a bull. A pleasure to have this human in our team. Be easy on him at first, he is learning English and you can help him learn fast.

    We are making an Eco-friendly Art hostel to provide real Indian Cultural exchange the Project consists of a place with 480 Dorm beds, 2 private apartments, cafe space, a kitchen, Bar, Artspace, and a Kitchen garden. a library, 7000 Sq. Ft Garden with 300 plants & vines and 25 trees, a yoga studio, an Events & Music stage and Jamming space, nature tours, and a social awareness team and more as we go along.

    We felt the need for this as when we travelled we realized that people have immense respect for India and its culture but when they are here to see it they fall into traps of scammers and mean businessmen. And this struggle of travellers drifts them away from the real culture we hold for hosting and food and sharing and living together, we want t to create a safe space for people so that they can learn, talk understand, behave and live in our real Indian ambience away from the money-oriented business.
    Here we aim to reach a sustainable business which runs on the prosperity of a group effort. We plan to grow our food, organic if possible, the art space will have the tools necessary to enhance your creativity and create art together while learning and teaching each other. We would call it a community but this is just a phased one. We also wish to make this into a documentary and share with all others that it is possible to quit all the stressful full city and live a healthy stress-free calm life with people you love if worked properly.

    We request for Support of like-minded people to make this project a reality and safe space for all travellers from all walks of life, We are looking for Builders, Gardeners, painters, creative souls who wish to add more, electricians, plumbers, geeks with social bug, adventurers to create this experience and have an experience while creating it, Feel free to drop a question if you are interested in any kind .........

    We await your touch in this experience :)
