10 Top Hostels for Female Travellers
Women’s Day takes place every year on 8th March.
To mark the event HostelBookers
handpicks hostels around the world to suit women
for whom security, a spot of pampering
or the feminine touch matters. Straightening irons? Freshly
baked cookies? A candlelit bath time? No problem...
note that while each of these hostels have been written
up by HostelBookers.com they are also rated by the women
who have used the hostels along the way and are visible
when you read their blurbs. We like that!
