If you’ve been reading The Travel Hack for a while, you know that we always recommend staying in a hostel when traveling on a budget. Hostels are great if you’re traveling in a group, on a tight budget, or visiting an expensive destination where half of your hotel bill can easily be wiped out.

If you curl your toes when you hear the word “hostel,” I can tell you that hostels have come a long way in the past decade. Hostels are no longer bleak rooms with squeaky bunk beds, dirty bathrooms, and kitchens that look like they haven’t seen Mr. Muscle erupt since. No, hostels are often stylish, quirky, cozy, homey and sociable places. Choose from a variety of rooms, including affordable 10-bed dorms, double rooms, family rooms, and small dorms for 3-4 people. Many hostels also have female-only dormitories for women who don’t want to share with strangers. This will also reduce the risk of sharing it with someone who snores. It’s an interesting place with a variety of guests, including young families, solo travelers, couples, and groups of friends.

There are still some unsafe hostels out there, so it is very important to read guest reviews before choosing a hostel.
