Property Description

ImagiNation - Artists' Hostel is building a home for artists to stay, work, play and get inspired.

Do you ever think the world would be better if everyone was an artist? Well, this is that world. A world where art is bold, without inhibitions, where creativity is not restricted by society’s boundaries, and your art can find its way from your imagination into this world. Because art is liberating and that’s how it should be. Be Bold.

With an aim to create a community, we’re designing this place in a serene neighbourhood, 2 kms away from Arambol beach, a melting pot filled with artists from across the world.

Sometimes an artist needs solitude, sometimes someone to share weirdest of thoughts, watch movies at night, create music, discuss books, and above all, never be judged for their craziness. This is a place where you can be yourself.

We are all citizens of ImagiNation, a country without borders, where everyone is accepted and lives in a happy community.


What it is:
- a dorm style setting on the top floor of a nice building
- Only 8 beds
- Open spaces to relax and work, get inspired
- Clean and secure
- Workshops, courses, exhibitions (contact us if you wish to host any workshop)

· It is a community of artists who respect each other and live in peace. If you wish for service, luxury or everything to work like clockwork, this is NOT the place

· We built this because we believe that artists need to be valued and there needs to be a space that allows them to work without any inhibitions and fears. This is the place for creation

· We have a kitchen where guests are only allowed to store and heat food. You can also make tea / coffee. Cooking is not allowed. We have a couple of restaurants around that deliver. You can order from there.

· The place is on top floor of a 3 storey building. If you have problems climbing stairs, we request you to book another place

What we do have:

· A place full of good people and an amazing chill out zone where you can see the sunset from

· A mini-library filled with an amazing collection of books

· Musical instruments: Electric and acoustic guitars, full drum kit, Cajon, Djembes, a keyboard and some shakers

· Paint materials: We have acrylic, some oil and spray colors. We have canvasses for you to paint on.

· We screen some awesome movies from across the world

· Open terrace with a workstations

· Restaurants that deliver food (we do not have common kitchen access to guests except some nights when we all make dinner, etc.)

    Imagination Hostel is not a hostel, it’s a home. The hosts treat you with the upmost respect & kindness and make your stay in Arambol more than pleasant. The facilities are great, the hostel is not too big so you’ll get to know everyone on a personal level. At night everyone pulls up a chair and sits on the balcony area, it’s absolutely beautiful. If you’re coming to Arambol and wondering where to stay, I IMPLORE YOU to stay here.

    Upon arrival at ImagiNation, you feel relaxed as the chill vibe envelopes you. Mansi, one of the owners, is nice, smart and helpful. She recommends events, daily, for the guests to check out such as local bands, circus nights or pool parties. She even set up an outdoor movie night. The top floor has a great breeze, a beautiful, panoramic view and loungers to do work, nap or just hang out. The people staying here were fun and always full of interesting conversation. Sunset/sunrise yoga is great!

    Mansi and Pareen were the best hosts I've met, completely make you feel at home and part of the family. Definitely going back for a few more jam sessions!

    A lot can be said about ImagiNation. It's location, people, vibe, the space, jam sessions, night-outs, morning yoga & evening meditation and most importantly - the hosts (Mansi & Pareen). It's serene, peaceful & calm. People just fall in love with the place. Invariably, almost every traveler ends up extending the stay. Evenings are spent in jam sessions & meaningful conversations. Live events + Food night outs. And yes, star gazing at the terrace. Missing the place already :)

    What an amazing and unique hostel in Arambol. I had such a great time here. The hosts are warm and helpful. I made some really good friends there who I continued to travel to Hampi with. A safe and fun environment in which you can express yourself creatively in Goa. What more can you ask for? If you are an artist or interested in any art form — I highly recommend this hostel.

    Very Good

    This hostel is like a family living in an appartment. It's nice if you like to have people around as you don't have a lot of personal space. However it depends on who's staying there which makes it worth spending your time there. Feel like they can do more when it comes to terms of a clean environment and fixing things properly, but other then that it's a nice hostel.
