You’re probably thinking “aren’t hostels for young people?”
It makes sense.
After all, they were first called “Youth Hostels”.
But that changed a few years back;
Now, most are just called hostels and welcome old and young alike.
They are great places for budget-conscious travelers who want a safe and clean place to sleep, store and cook food, and opportunities to meet old and young travelers from around the country and the world out on life-changing adventures.
The conversations alone make a stay at a hostel worthwhile;
Can’t say you get that everywhere.
