The project originated from an international group of friends linked by a common passion for travelling. The intention is to make the life changing experience of travel accessible to everyone and to create sustainable spaces promoting individual empowerment and collective evolution.
Goa is the first chapter of the movement, established in September 2016. Ever since the community has hosted more than 1000 travelers from 60 different nationalities.

A space crafted with love and individual self – expression of hundreds of travelers.
Stories from the world and multi cultural experiences.

Welcome to the tent village.

This month’s campfest celebrates the facility and the vision of a global free travel community.

The hostel running period articulates three main activities :
– a special hosting, give a unique experience for every guest to feel at home.
– a strong online presence, to spread the word and connect widely.
– an innovative home care, for everything related to the property’s look, vibes and facilities.
Volunteering with us during this period is a way to get highly involved with the project, participate to its shared vision and exercise your skills for the common manifestation of the collective dream.
No Name Free Hostel is about expressing your freedom through co-creation: embody the soul of the project and contribute to the vision in your unique way.
Volunteering at the hostel requires the ability to work with focused mind, in a team as well as individually, while understanding the place & time requirements. It also implies an extraordinary human experience in a magical place, among what will soon become the members of an extended family.
To hold the team all together we prefer strong roots to a rigid frame, here are the directing principles of life in community, as we understand it :
The community and the vision it manifests being our reason to be there
Thinking, speaking, doing with pure & good intentions
Taking responsibilities and working within the imparted time
Always respecting who and what is around you
Representing the community core and its principles during the whole volunteering period
