Imagine a hostel that goes beyond just being a property for accommodation. A hostel that focuses more on the traveler’s experience, their desires, and their expectations. Although many might say establishing such a deep connection is not feasible due to various factors, here in goSTOPS, we specialize in the impossible! That’s why we’ve launched the goEXPERIENCES program!
Our main aim is to drive our guest’s experiences in our hostel up a notch with activities that’ll help them to engage more effectively with the people around them. This will help to build a close-knit community for those who share a similar love of travel. Traveling is a great way of building strong character, long-lasting friendships, and sweet memories, and we’re furthering this sentiment with goEXPERIENCES.
What’s goEXPERIENCES All About?
The answer is hidden in the name itself – “EXPERIENCES.” Talk about hiding in plain sight! We want our guests to experience more than just a pleasant stay. When people leave our hostel, they should have a lingering sense of excitement, joy, and thrill. And if we’re able to strike that chord, then we’ve accomplished practically everything. The goEXPERIENCES program is made up of 5 segments providing a varying sense of thrill to experienced and new travelers alike:
Traveling to an exotic city without indulging in the various activities it offers would be fruitless. What you want to do is get a proper feel of the city. When you walk in its streets, you should, in a sense, be in constant union with the tradition and culture it possesses. To help our guests experience that, we’ve got a long range of activities for them. Depending on which goSTOPS property the traveler chooses to stay at, we will guide them through the most prominent activities in that area. For instance, paragliding and river rafting in Bir and Rishikesh are just some of the activities we’ve kickstarted for our travelers.
We have something for our adventure fanatics as well! This program is meant for those who dream of trekking with a group of like-minded enthusiasts. It’s also true that more travelers are saying yes to more adventure activities. We have successfully completed 5 treks spanning across some major destinations. We aspire to launch more of them at least by the end of the fiscal year of March 2022.
We have something special in store for those who enjoy long rides. To get a better feel of a community, intercity trips touching major points of interest will be organized. We have done 10 trips so far, but we wish to expand our frequency in different cities as well.
Who wouldn’t want to attend an event in our warm and adorable abode?! From standup comedy performances to music acts, there’s always something happening at our goSTOPS properties. Living in such an amped-up atmosphere is what anybody would desire, especially when our events are held under starry skies around a bonfire.
For people who prefer to travel independently around the destination, we offer rentals at our properties. This also eliminates the need for our guests to hunt for other places for this service as most rental places tend to overcharge tourists to the fullest. With our honest rental rates, they will save on travel as much as they save on accommodation. It’s a win-win situation between goSTOPS and their guests.
The Future Of goEXPERIENCES
There’s a lot in store, but here’s a glance at our upcoming plans for our goEXPERIENCES program. We plan on introducing this program in Uttarakhand, Himachal, Goa, Kerala, and Rajasthan in the next 5 months. Once achieved, the plan is to touch 10 more locations along with 25 more products. And we also plan on having our goEXPERIENCES segment introduced on our website and our app as well
We’re still in the works of planning many other things for goEXPERIENCES. Since the launch of the program, we’ve seen a lot of positive results. And we plan on expanding it – maybe even going beyond those 5 tenets – to give our guests that ideal, incomparable travel experience. Until then, stay in touch with us, and follow our socials to keep yourselves updated with the latest offerings of goSTOPS. Cheers to new beginnings!
