Why stay in a hostel?
There was a time when hostels were a backpacker’s thing, for youngsters willing to face dirty bathrooms and giant rooms full of beds in order to travel on a budget and see the world and different cultures. Nowadays, it is possible to stay in a hostel with the same standard of services offered in hotels. But why stay in a hostel?
More than just cheap accommodation, hostels involve a philosophy of travel : there are travelers who are not only interested in seeing the places of interest, but also prefer contact and experience with the local culture. The hostels are generally friendly and modern, full of common areas that encourage interaction between guests.
Prices are normally better than hotels
Normally, when comparing prices between hostel and hotel , hostels get ahead on economy, mainly by having shared rooms. But today there are hostels with individual rooms and private bathrooms .
