Goa is a great holiday place to take that well deserved break and thankfully it's open to tourists again *phew*. Goa recently opened to domestic tourists on July 2, 2020 and we can't wait to take that long overdue vacation. So if you are making plans to book your tickets and head to Goa soon, bookmark this hostel for a great stay.

I stumbled upon Woke Hostel while searching for an accommodation last year when i was travelling to Goa and the garden area and the location made me instantly book this place. The building is over 100 years old and offers a girl's dorm, a mixed dorm and 3 private rooms with a beautiful garden area and a swimming pool.

I absolutely loved the lazy vibes at this place and the wonderful people I met. They have a strict policy against 4 and more people to ensure that everyone talks to everyone.
