Well, I had been to Goa twice before in almost a span of a year and wasn't really enthusiastic to go again. But when my friends wanted to go to Goa for one last time during their last semester of engineering, I had to agree with the group. Little did I know that this time Goa had very different experiences in store for me.
How was it different? Well, we stayed in a hostel for the first time ever. The hostel is called 'That crazy hostel' and I must say, the place lives up to its name. The place has a very chilled out and happy vibe about it. The owner Manish makes sure everyone has a blast by organizing different events almost every night so that people can interact with each other. The best part about the hostel is that its as cheap as Rs 300 per night along with complementary breakfast.
We reached Goa from Bangalore on the morning of 4th April. Even though its not the best time to visit Goa but I'd say you should still go for it. We got down from our bus at the Mapusa Bus stop. Rented bikes from there itself. (TIP: Private transportation is very expensive in Goa. So, try to rent cars/bikes from a place near the bus stop to minimize the cost of going from the hotel to bus stop and back to the bus stop on the returning day.)
