Changing Face of Hostels  and Cheap Accommodation

The youth and budget travel market demands more today than ever, travellers are street wise and globally savvy, they know what they want and at what price. If you ask any young person what they want to do in life they probably wouldn't give you any sensible answer, but one thing they definitely know is they want to Travel the World and Visit as many places as possible before they settle down.

There is a Can Do Travel attitude in the Youth of today, they want to travel from Sydney to BeiJing, from New York to London and Prague, From Lagos to Cape Town then possibly new Delhi, all on a shoe string budget, this attitude has been inspired by the Boom of Budget Airlines and Cheap Air Travel this has also brought about the boom in Budget Accommodation, which is the fastest growing sector in the Accommodation and Tourism.

Time has been a friend to Hostels and the people who stay in them. Only a few years ago if you stayed in a Hostel it may not have been the best experience, but now things have definitely changed for the better. Some people in America used to refer to Hostels as Toilet because of the poor standards, outright neglect and lack of customer care.

The prices of Hostels and Cheap Hotels are still the most competitive in the Market for Inexpensive Holiday Accommodation, but the Quality of the accommodation and service given by the staff has improved 10 fold.

Some of these changes have been brought about by the emergence of the Internet and online Booking sites Like, which use a rating system and demand high standards from the operator, this lets Budget travellers know what type of Accommodations they are booking before they get there. Also after staying in the Accommodation they can send in their feedback and Rating.

This type of online booking sites allows the traveller know what they are getting into before they confirm their booking. This gives the traveller the opportunity to know what type of Facilities there are, full description and Photo's, Directions and much more.

You can now find Hostels in many Cities around the World with Private Single, Double and Triple Rooms with en-suite Facilities, Free Internet access and WiFi Hot spots, there are many Hostels with full Guest Kitchens, Meeting Facilities and some with Gyms and Swimming Pools, things which you would only expect from Expensive Hotels.

Even if you prefer to stay in the Classic Dorm style rooms these have also been transformed, with ingenious things that make your stay more enjoyable, like Free In room Security Lockers, En-suite Facilities, Reading lights for each Bunk and Privacy Curtains.

Hostels today are run like a business that care for its customers and not half way houses for delinquents.

The Quality and variety of Facilities provided in many budget accommodations make you think you are staying in a far more expensive Hotel, it is good to know you have found a great deal.

It must be said that the majority of Hostels have improved dramatically, and by online booking sites insisting on best standards this has forced even the most scrupulous operators to get their act together, there will always be exceptions, but as a whole, if you have never stayed in a Hostel before there is no better time than Now, to take the Plunge and save yourself some serious money. You will be pleasantly surprised, and you might even be converted into a Hosteller.
