Deals.

9/19/2011




Who said hostels are just for poor, struggling college students? And who said that they have to be cramped, dingy and bunk bed style? When Matt and I traveled through Europe we only stayed at hostels and pensiones. Nearly all of them were fun, funky and very clean. And many seemed just as stylish as the $300 boutique hotel around the corner. How do you travel?

*The above rates are for private rooms, dorm rooms are cheaper.

I've stayed in a hostel in Germany that was pretty nice, but the hostels that I stayed at in Australia were not as nice...

Recently I've been of a bit of a more mid-class traveller..

Hostels sound pretty cool to me, I just hate being near lots of people, but if I went to one like those I'd be happy :)

What incredible prices and darling rooms! I know when I travel to Europe {if I ever get the gol darn chance!} I will be staying at hostels. I'm going to keep this list in mind-- thanks for sharing!

Oh, and I'm so glad you stopped by Peony :) thanks

Wow those are good deals! When we went to the UK in 08 we decided to stay in the middle and did bed and breakfasts. I want to say it came out to $130-$160 a night depending on where we stayed. That was when the pound was at it's highest though. But it included breakfast. We loved doing it that way.

When I travel with my boyfriend (and hence are splitting the cost) we do mid to high-end hotels (he is a prima donna! LOL). But on my own I will do hostels but they must be CLEAN. I'm going to Chile next week and am presently surprised to see that the hostels in Santiago, the capital, are really nice and modern!
