I seek new experiences. I crave variety. My bucket list gains new entries even as I tick them off. All this motivated me to stay at Zostel Panchgani for one night, in a 20 x 8 feet converted shipping container. That’s 150 square feet, gross. Was the thought of sharing such tight quarters with another person the offbeat element? No, I live in Mumbai where my room is 170 square feet.
The prospect of staying in a shipping container was intriguing, coupled with my first brush at India’s hostel life. Zostel is a branded hostel chain in India established by Indians, with presence in 25 locations across Indian…and 2 in Nepal! [https://www.zostel.com/zostel/panchgani/]
