Dog Guesthouse in Idaho
Some of the most bizarre places to find hostels & hotels in the world

Finding the right type of accommodation can make or break a holiday, but sometimes the usual types of hostels and hotels are not what travelers are looking for, what is needed is something a bit different and I’m not talking about roughing it in a tent on a camp site.

There are accommodations in the strangest places and buildings, but one thing they all have in common that can not be forgotten is that once you’re inside the accommodation, they are all comfortable and great places to relax for holiday makers.

Here are a few of the most unique places to stay in the world.
