This was budget friendly, and best place to enjoy along the beach. We stayed in tents. The best part of the stay is the people you meet there. The staff of trippr are so friendly that we won’t even feel that we are new there. Overall, its the best place to stay in Gokarna when you are with friends.
One of the best best place that I have ever visited..I love the atmosphere and the brotherhood that evryone shows there is daamn good..I just want to visit there again and again thank you so much brother's for making me soo comfortable
After 6 hours of travel night bus and a long walk I arrived at this structure in the noon very tired. At the check in time the manager kept me in a rude way for about half an hour with his new staff asking me for the same usual information (visa, address and age) with the justification that he had to train the staff. In my point of view the way like he treated guests was very unprofessional and rude and look like he felt almost untouchable in his high position.
First of all I want to say that I didn’t stay at this hostel so I have no idea how the accommodation works. I am writing this review only for the “Plankton night trekking” to Paradise beach that this hostel is famous for organizing in Gokarna. We were told that the trekking will start at 11PM and end at 2AM. We waited on the bus stand for more than 45 minutes before the guys picked us up at 11:45AM. The guides were acting nice but when we asked them what is the chance to see plankton tonight they said 100%. for our surprise, we reached the beach and we didn’t see a single plankton. We even heard them talking that the plankton is really visible only in September. They left us back on the bus stand around 3:20 and we were left with the feeling that we were scammed one more time in India. We explained the guy who was collecting the money that we will pay only for the transportation because we didn’t get anything more than a normal night walk to the beach, which was not what we were told we would get. I explained him that I know it is not his fault and that he can tell the manager to call me in the morning so I can explain him why I refused to pay the full price for this parody. In the morning, I was absolutely shocked how this “manager” tried to approach me. I was ready to have a normal conversation and ask him why does he expect people to pay him for this kind of scams. But before I even have the chance to say something, he began cursing me with a very wide variety of words, which I am just not going to mention here. I was impressed how big his cursing dictionary is. I started laughing and understood that there won’t be a normal dialogue here. Then he threatened me that he is “sending people for me and if they find me, there will be a lot of trouble”. Well, Mr. Manager, I am telling you here that this is an absolute disgrace. You are a shame for Gokarna tourism.…
The location is the only good thing about htis place. The staff were kind of rude and uninterested about the cutomers. Food in particular was bad, epsecially becuase the wait was too long and prices were higher compared to many neighbouring shacks. If you choose a tent to stay, the shared bathrooms that are available are pretty pathetically maintained. The overall vibe of the place is right if you want to only party and not care about cleanliness. We were disappointed.
