Property Description

goStops Alleppey occupies vintage building with a vibrant history that is located in the culturally rich side of Alleppey.

The heritage building has been converted into an Art Hostel while preserving the ethnic character and the history of the building. At goStops Alleppey, you will see remnant characteristics of the building from when it was used as a radio studio, office of the DSP, a primary school and a store house for spices over different decades. The high raised wooden ceilings, intricate wood works and the amalgamation of Indo-Dutch architecture gives the place a unique charm. The property was renovated mostly using recycled materials and is maintained as an environmentally viable space.

The outdoor communal area in open to air faces the remnants of a 12 feet high wall which survived a fire many years ago. The space revolves around the concept of the fusion of art and travel and welcomes artists, backpackers and creative souls to co-exist under the same space. View House Rules

    One of the best hostel experiences provided by Abin, Anantu and Prasanna. The rooms are HUGE and the layout of beds are very nice with slanting ladders to go to upper bunks. You can do your own laundry easily. Clean bathrooms. VERY friendly managers always willing to help with everything! Good balanced breakfast. Highly recommended!

    Supremely helpful people who help you make your backwaters experience in allepy super easy. Really enjoyed how the hostel team didn’t push anything on you they simply asked very nicely whether you wanted to book through them or not. AC was wonderful, plenty of room, and clean bathrooms. The outside seating area was nice as well for some late night socializing with other backpackers. Enjoyed my time there!

    This hostel is beautifully transformed from a colonial building. Super neat and clean with very nice decorations. A nice years in front has plenty of space to chill and relax. The location is just 400 m away from the beach. The staff are super friendly and more than willing to help you out with travel suggestions.

    I had a fabulous stay at Artpackers! The staff was so friendly and helpful. They gave me restaurant recommendations and set up a wonderful backwater kayaking tour for me and others at the hostel. It was small but easy to meet others staying there. The private room was wonderful - stylish, comfortable, hot water, AC. The only downside is that it’s about 10 mins walk from the beach. Not bad but farther than other hostels in Aleppey. Still, I wouldn’t trade my experience for anything. :)

    Great hostel. Unfortunately we couldn't check in early and because our flight landed very early in the morning, we had to wait for 4 hours in their garden. It was a shame there wasn't anywhere inside we could have waited. Otherwise, nice place with big rooms.

    Great hostel with free breakfast included which was a bonus. Super cheap for what you get and the staff are so lovely. Rooms were nice and clean. Tours ran by the hostel are brilliant - especially the kayak tour. There were quite a lot of bugs at the hostel but that’s of course because it’s quite open plan so difficult to avoid.

    A gorgeous property, however be prepared to battle with an army of mosquitoes if you decide to chill outdoors. The hostel lacks a social atmosphere - there is a common room with a foosball table, however the manager, locks up the room every time he goes anywhere. The couches are also uncomfortable. The manager comes across as friendly initially but if you are a solo female traveler, beware because he will hit on you! :/

    Right on main road, avoid this place for many reasons. This is not a good place to stay. Noisy, window stays open in room so a/c is non effective, lots of road noise. Just not a good spot
