When you’re traveling on a budget, hostels are an excellent choice of accommodation. Along with being affordable, they’re often more social and experiential than hotels, with common areas, group activities and shared or private living spaces. Not all hostels are created equal.
You need to understand what a hostel is and what to look for before you book.

What is a Hostel?
If you’ve never stayed at a hostel, you probably have some questions about them. Many people are confused by common hostel myths or the horror movie, Hostel.

Picture a college dorm. You’ll have roommates and will share spaces like the bathroom, kitchen and common room. Instead of isolating you from other guests, hostels are a great place to meet people.

Fun fact: Hostels started as student housing, although they are no longer just for students
