Property Description

HostelExp, Gokarna, is strategically located 300 meters away from Gokarna Main Beach. We are a vibrant, diverse, and responsible travelers' community in Gokarna, running a backpackers hostel by collaborating with locals, volunteers, and artists. If you want to know and experience the true Gokarna, this is the place.

HostelExp, Gokarna, offers different local experiences, yoga classes, a community kitchen, and much more. We have private rooms with patios and a few dormitory beds.

You will experience a relaxing (but not luxurious) stay by sharing farm space with cows, chickens, dogs, and other animals around the farm. Please do not complain to us about dogs or chickens disturbing you.

We have laundry facilities.
We offer homely local food like Masala Dosa, Thali, etc.
We have an in-house hand-poked tattoo studio.

Had an amazing experience staying here. The property is located in a calm locality and walkable from the beach. The rooms, bathrooms, etc. were clean. The staff was friendly and hospitable. Special mention to the property manager, Mr. Sunil for taking good care of all the guests. Overall, a good experience.

We’ve had a lovely stay to HostelEXP. All the staff have been very nice and extremely helpful offering lots of activities. We have eaten at the cafe at the hostel every day and it’s been delicious food from breakfast to dinner. We would stay again, thank you

The worst property I have stayed in my entire trip. Lots of mosquitoes and insects in dorms and common areas. The beds were not at all comfortable and the vibe was very dull in this hostel. Unable to sleep well in this property. Will not recommend this property at all.
