Helloss, Crazy Coconut Hostel (Previously, Shraddha Holiday Home) is basically a coconut themed hostel near the beach. ;) Well, my property is located at a 10 mins walking distance from Nagaon Beach in Alibaug which has earned the name of Mini Goa over the years. Nagaon is located at 7 kms from main Alibaug City, which is again very close to big cities like Mumbai and Pune. Our Hostel is a 2 storeyed building with 6 rooms rented out for tourists and travellers. It consists of 2 six bed dorms and 4 private rooms, A common hall and a common kitchen is available on the ground floor. A hangout place and library on the roof and in the backyard. Its secured by CCTVs all over the common places and has a fast WiFi too. We have 24*️️️️️️️7 power back-up for all the rooms. What adds taste to your stay is a beautiful backyard which is filled with all the coconut trees and hammocks. Dim light decorations all over the backyard with music going on creates a very cozy and laid-back ambience in the property. We have a huge common terrace too where we set up tents if anyone wants to stay under the sky. The place is very safe and a popular getaway destination. We have few options depending on the availability: 1. Private rooms. Every room has an attached washroom with water geyser and western toilets. Every room has a balcony, TV and air-conditioner. 2. 6 bed mixed dorms. With a private balcony, attached washroom with water geyser and western toilets. Every dorm has a balcony and air-conditioner. 3. Tent options available on terrace with common washrooms. Note: Volunteers will be given accommodation in the shared dorms. You will have the access to the kitchen. You can cook your own food the way you want it to. Whenever possible we'll also provide free food.
Helloss, Well "about yourself " will always be the most confusing question. :D :p I am Swapnil More, owner of Crazy Coconut Hostel. I am a Computer Engineer by qualification. Have a main business of Inventory and Warehouse Management. But I am a passionate solo traveler which led me to a desire of starting a backpackers hostel to give it back to the travelling society which taught me what real life is. In my hostel, i have a dedicated person for all the housekeeping. Its one of its kind concept which will give you a wonderful coconut experience. ;) Here we will be trying to give you maximum possible experience. Well you can visit 3 forts in Alibaug which are pretty ancient and lot of culture to get attracted to. You can learn Indian cooking, especially Konkani food (Konkan is a coastal belt in western India). You can also visit the beach everyday which is absolutely close. Yoga Lot of famous temples nearby. Learn Indian Musical Instruments from locals (Basic course is free. Advance is paid ofcourse) Coconut Art
I would recommended this experience to any one who wishes to see more of the world. Swapnil will give you a feeling that you are at home. I was only here for the minimum periof of 1 week but still had a rich experience. I have been welcomed so warmly and I was given to chance to learn so many thing about culture.
I left with full of good memories. Hope to see you again!

We had a lovely time here! We stayed for a week and really enjoyed the daily task, painting coconut, gardening, decorating. We loved learning about yoga sport. We also helped with some gardening and designing. We had a comfortable stay near the Nagaoun beach in a comfortable and beautiful hostel and we could use of a basic chicken and laundry. Everyone was very friendly. We wish we could have stayed longer!
