Why a Hostel
I didn’t start traveling until I was in my 40’s. For a long time, I wanted to try the hosteling thing. Of course the appeal was the price but also, I wouldn’t be lonely. Even if I didn’t talk or socialize, I would still be around other travelers.
Hosteling can be good, bad and ugly. I actually slept in the following hostels. Mostly, it was positive. There were a few stinkers here and there.
