Small Dorm Rooms at Hostels
When it comes to affordable accommodation there is no doubt that hostels are at the forefront of affordable accommodations for many budget travellers, no matter which city or destination they want to visit.

But there is a large section of people that have never considered staying in a Hostels, and most of the time their concerns out are unfounded and out dated.

Now when we look back at the conception of hostels many years ago, they were primarily setup for backpackers and students taking time out from studying to travel and find them self, but at the same time not wanting to spend loads on a place to sleep, so sharing in a large open dorm was no problem and actually a lot of fun as a young traveller.

Hostels were the most cost affective accommodation, offering guests a bunk bed for a night in a shared room with other travellers, a locker was sufficient for any belongings as people travelled light with usually just a backpack.

We skip forward to today, and hostels have changed drastically, now lots of different people stay in hostels, so why the change?

Just like hotels and other accommodations there are good and bad points to staying in a hostel, but now a lot of the time the good points far outweigh the bad if you are on a tight budget.

So what exactly has changed so much in hostels to attract such a vast spectrum of travellers to stay in them.

Firstly the standards of cleanliness and service have improved many fold, and secondly the type of accommodation and rooms on offer is much wider, there are of course the classic large dorm rooms, but now there are smaller dorms for just 4 or 6 people and one major change is the introduction of private rooms.

These private rooms can be for 1, 2, 3, 4 or more people, but only people you are travelling with stays in the room and the whole room is paid for, this allows for some privacy and peace of mind.

The bathroom facilities in hostels have always been a bone of contention, large shower rooms for male and female, each person having a small shower cubical, so to solve this, now some rooms have private en-suite bathrooms, and not just the private rooms some dorms also.

Another set of travellers that benefit greatly from Hostels are groups, and hostels provide ideal group accommodation, dorm rooms for those looking for a cheap bed and private rooms for the leaders, or tour guide.

Now taking all this into consideration, its not as if you would stay in a hostel if you have the finances for a Hotel, but if you want to get away and need to find a bargain, hostels are well with looking at, after all it would be Crazy not to stay in a hostel and save money if your on a tight budget
