goSTOPS, India’s largest backpackers hostel brand, has launched stellar properties at two of the most sought-after locations in India. goSTOPS Goa Vagator is the chain’s biggest property yet, while the centrally-located goSTOPS Bir Landing Site brings travelers much closer to the skies. Both hostels have been opened for adventure-loving travelers with a lot of indoor and outdoor travel experiences.
goSTOPS Goa Vagator:
The pristine natural beaches, clear blue skies, lush green palm trees, exciting adventure activities, and full-on party vibes of Vagator have made the new hostel in North Goa a go-to property among travel enthusiasts.
goSTOPS Goa Vagator comprises 8 private rooms and 144 dorms beds, making it the largest goSTOPS hostel (in terms of number of beds). Strategically located near the party hotspots of Goa, goSTOPS Goa Vagator is just 1.5 km from Vagator Beach, 2.3 km from Anjuna Beach, and 1.7 km from Ozran Beach.
It has a sprawling common area with two indoor and one outdoor space. It also has plenty of fun entertainment options like the café, swimming pool, foosball, and pool table.
goSTOPS Bir Landing Site:
Watching the world from a bird’s-eye view in India’s paragliding capital is truly a unique experience. When staying at the new property in Bir, travelers also get to enjoy marshmallows around a fire while watching paragliders fill color in the sky.
goSTOPS Bir offers a spacious dormitory with 42 beds and 5 private rooms with vibrant interiors. Like other goSTOPS properties, this new hostel is conveniently located and is only 900 meters away from the local bus depot. With the paragliding site barely 1.5 km away, hostel guests get a pretty spectacular view of the hilltop as well as the paragliders flying over it.
Situated at the center of Bir, goSTOPS Bir allows you to easily access nearby cafés and all other local outdoor attractions. At the hostel, visitors can socialize with each other over various fun and recreational amenities like pool tables and indoor games. They can also enjoy the barbeque and swings outside.
The hostel is strategically located near the cafes and other major tourist attractions of Bir, making it the perfect place for backpackers who wish to explore much more than just paragliding in Bir.
Both properties have idyllic amphitheater-style outdoor garden seating areas, where guests can bond with fellow travelers, and share their personal experiences. They also have workation facilities with free WiFi. For travelers who wish to experience Bir and Goa beyond the quintessential activities like paragliding, indoor games, and basking on sunny beaches, there are plenty of pulsating activities to indulge in.
Excited about the launch of new properties in Bir and Goa, Pankaj Parwanda, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of goSTOPS, said, “When we started thinking of places that we wanted to expand further, Bir and Goa immediately stood out. Bir has an inherent quality of making every visitor feel adventurous while they explore something entirely new, and that is a virtue, we at goSTOPS, hold close to our hearts. At the same time, Goa always tops the wishlist of every traveler in our country for its natural blend of both domestic and international vibes in and around the state. Vagator Beach is the most photographed beach for its breathtaking natural beauty. These qualities of Bir and Goa, along with the amazing folklore, monuments, and architecture they house, add to the goLOCAL experiences that our brand offers. This is an initiative that works toward carving out experiences that are authentic and intrinsic to the locations. We are hopeful that we’ll be extending the spirit of adventure and wonder that we’ve seen across the country to our patrons at the new Bir and Goa properties”.
