give me the opportunity to extend my stay anywhere, spending
$ where it is worth it and not on sleep. @babarbaggins
a hostel that matches your personality, level of tolerance,
& energy level. Change spots if it means a better
exp 4 u. @zengarden17
and NZ hostels were amazing & felt like home. I wish
I'd stayed in more co-ed rms, u meet many more people
traveling alone! @melaniereiff
like hostels bc I travel solo and its a great way to meet
people but also because its nice to make yourself a home
cooked meal. @TravelYourself
you travel alone, hostels are a great, safe, place to
connect with fellow travellers - often those from diff
and easy!quality ranges from clean and cheerful to pretty
grimy and dank!Be prepared - its all part of the experience!
meet new people, staff know the area well/usually younger,
generally cheaper, fun activities (usually) and/or location.
can offer unique, once in a lifetime experiences. I once
stayed in a Scottish castle for less than $20. @landlopers
lighthearted and know what you're getting into. Hostels
can be a lot of fun if you're in the right frame of mind.
used hostels & loved them because of all the interesting
people I've met. I've also felt safe. @carlitarocks
I like hostels? 1) its usually the cost (cheap). 2) &
u can still get a pvt room lol. 3) its nice to have other
travelers around. @AnjaniLadki
exciting to be thrown out of my comfort zone (no hot water,
dorms & simple interiors) makes travel fun! &
very social. @TLC_Designs
have tons of reasons why I use hostels! Main reason is
better social atmosphere. Also, believe it or not, safety
is one. @amerimatryoshka
