| Hostels Destination
Hostels or Cheap Youth Hostels may not sound very glamorous, and for years it may not have been the best of Ideas, but this is the most common destination for the budget travellers and the youth of today when they travel.
If we take a closer look at Hostels and what they have to offer to the budget traveller of all ages and the youth of today, you can begin to see the benefits and what is encouraging so many people to stay in them.
Once you have stayed in your first Hostel, in no time at all your hooked on saving money on your hostels Accommodation while getting the same benefits as Hotels with added extras, like Guest Kitchens for your quick sandwich and cup of tea to relaxing in the gardens while someone is Busily Cooking Lunch on the Bar BQ.
There are many misconceptions about staying in a Hostel which I would like to resolve.
Not everyone that stays in a Hostel has to sleep in a Dorm in a Bunk bed!
Yes there are a lot of Hostels that have dorm style rooms, these are the cheapest rooms in the Hostel, and you pay for your bed this may or may not be a Bunk bed and the room is shared with other people. These Dorms can be Mixed, All Female or All Male and the number of beds can vary from 2 to Over 20 depending on the Youth Hostel.
I find this type of Accommodation great if you are travelling with some friends and you need a cheap place to rest, or you want to visit as many Cities and Countries as Possible without blowing your whole Expenditure on Expensive rooms that you do not even spend much time in because your out exploring the City and visiting all the sights.
In most hostels there are Private Rooms, Yes I said Private Rooms. Let me Clarify, you and your partner choose to stay in the hostel in a Double En-suite Room. This means you and your partner have a Completely Private room with your own En-suite facilities you DO NOT SHARE. These rooms are slightly more expensive than the Dorm Beds but not even close to the prices of most Hotels. You still have full use of all the Facilities in the Hostel so if you want to chill out I the Lounge or play pool in the Games room you are free to do so.
If it is your first time staying in a Hostel and you're a little apprehensive, this is the perfect option for you and it still does not break the bank, you can participate in the Hostelling experience but you still have your own private get away in your room when you want some quiet time with just the two of you.
