Property Description

ImagiNation - Artists' Hostel is a home for artists, performers and other creative spirits. We offer a unique chance to stay among kindred souls, work, play and get inspired.

Do you ever think you would be better off if everyone around you was an artist? Well, this is it! It’s a place where art is bold and without restrictions, where creativity is not restricted by societal boundaries, where your art can emerge from your imagination and into this world. Art is liberating and that’s how it should be. Allow yourself to be Bold.

With a goal to create a genuine community, we’ve designed Imagination – a place on a hill, in a serene neighbourhood, but still only 1.2 km away from Arambol beach. It is a melting pot filled with artists from around the world.

Sometimes an artist needs solitude; sometimes someone wants to share the weirdest thoughts, watch movies at night, create music, discuss books, and above all – never be judged for who they really are.

At Imagination, you can be yourself, express yourself, and live in a happy community.

-------------

Imagination is:
- a dorm-style setting in a nice building situated atop of a hill;
- 20 beds with lockers;
- Open spaces to relax and work, get inspired;
- Clean, comfortable and secure;
- Rooftop terrace, perfect for conversations and collaborations;
- Workshops, courses, exhibitions (contact us if you wish to host a workshop or are looking for collaborators).

• It is a simple community of artists who respect each other and live in peace. It is not a hotel with room service and luxuries.

• We created this place because we value artists creative people; we wanted to develop a space that allows them to work without any inhibitions and fears. This is a place of creation and inspiration.

• We have a kitchen where guests are allowed to store and heat food. You can also make tea / coffee. Cooking is not allowed; however, we have a couple of inexpensive restaurants around that deliver tasty food right to our hostel.

• It is a 3-storeyed building. Ground floor is accessible, but in order to get to the proper part of the hostel/terrace, you must use the stairs.

We offer:

• A place full of good people and an amazing chill out zone with a great sunset view;

• A mini-library filled with a collection of great books;

• Musical instruments: Electric and acoustic guitars, a full drum kit, a cajón, djembes, a keyboard and some shakers;

• Paint materials: We have acrylic, some oil and spray colors. We also have canvases for you to paint on;

• A chance to record your efforts;

• Screenings of great Indian and international movies;

• Open terrace with live music sessions;

• Restaurants that deliver food (we do not have common kitchen access for guests except some nights when we make dinner together, etc.);

• An unforgettable atmosphere.

------------ Important
- This is not a backpacker / party hostel (even though we do party here!). This is a place for conversations, meeting people, relaxed nights playing music and Jenga, discussing books and all the funny, serious, and important aspects of the world;
- It is away from the beach (1.2 kms), in a peaceful neighbourhood;
- Bring in good vibes and spread them!

------------ What do we have?
- Clean dorms,
- A breezy balcony with cosy seating,
- Work desks on a quaint little terrace;
- Seating / Jam area / Workshops on a big terrace;
- Movie screenings;
- Book shelf filled with a curated collection of books;
- Musical instruments,
- Wi-fi free of charge.

---------------------

-- We only provide a laundry service and basic kitchen facilities. It is not a luxury destination.

-- We try to take care of all the check-ins before 5pm. Our reception is shut after 5pm.

-- If you are not an artist, entrepreneur, creative worker, or have any doubts if you will fit our environment, please contact us before booking. We want to be as fair to you as possible, but there will be no refund even if we cancel your booking or disallow check-ins.

-- Booking a stay and not showing up or cancelling on the day of expected arrival is inconsiderate of the place and other artists who will not be able to stay because a bed will be unavailable to them. In this case, we will not consider your booking in the future.

-- We have shared washrooms, common spaces and spend a lot of time together (although introverts and quiet souls will surely find their footing here as well). We live like a family, with everyone coexisting in harmony. If this is not your vibe, please reconsider staying with us.

Such an incredibly peaceful place to reside. More than just a hostel. Perhaps a point where people connect through art. The beautiful part is that they gotch musical instruments at the entrance. Amazingly comfy stay indeed. Thank you Imagination Artist Hostel! Thank you Prasoon!

It would have been a great stay if they had avoided the ruckus at the beginning. We had booked 3 beds for a day at this hostel. When we reached the place the Manager/Owner informed us that the hostel was full and one of us will have to sleep on a mattress on ground. After taking a stand they somehow managed the beds for us. Not sure what went wrong in first place and then miraculously the beds appeared. Anyway post this episode everything went on pretty smoothly.
