5 REASONS TO STAY AT A HOSTEL
18 April, 2017
Generally hostels are much cheaper than hotels with prices as low as £8, depending on the destination you are planning to visit. Hostels offer rooms to suit your budget. You can choose to stay in a shared dorm room or private room. The more people per room, the more money you can save! You do not have to worry about the location and quality, as most hostels are set up in city center locations and many new hostels offer better facilities than hotels. You may enjoy a private washroom for private twin/double rooms. Wifi, book exchange, TV & films, bar, and internet cafes can often be found in hostels.

Usually you will find energetic and nice young staff in the hostels. Most of them are keen on travelling as you do! They know the city well and cannot wait to share their best advice on things to do and what to eat. Their advice may allow you to see places which may give you more insight into the local culture and its identity. You can get loads of free information and sometimes even discounts and transportation!
