Why Stay in a Hostel?
Hostels are perfect if you are a backpacker, student, budget traveller or just want to explore a new destination and meet new people. Hostels are usually a lot more social than staying in a hotel as most have social spaces or arrange activities and events. You can find cheap hostel accommodation all around the world, with large international companies and locally run properties. Hostels usually have cheap beds in dorm rooms both small and large and also private rooms if you have a larger budget or are looking for more privacy.
Prices are also usually the fraction of the cost of hotels and resorts meaning you will get to spend more money on sightseeing. Don't be fooled into thinking just because hostels are cheap that you will be getting poor facilities. Long gone are the days of prison style hostels - most hostels now usually have modern designs with communal kitchens, lounges, sofas and soon even have roof terraces and swimming pools.
