Previously, the experiences of staying in a hostel were horrible – dirty bathrooms, messy dorm rooms, kitchens in bad condition and many more. However, that has changed. Today’s hostels provide similar experience one may find in a hotel. The one thing where a hotel score’s better over a hostel is the level of comfort offered to the travelers. Not just the experience, staying in hostel is way cheaper than a hotel and many backpackers are now focusing their attention to choose a hostel over a hotel. Here are few reasons why hostels are better than hotel for a unique experience.
- Cheaper –If you’re on a tight-budget while travel to another destination, then staying in a hostel is the way to go. Few of the amenities found in a hotel can similarly be found in a hostel as well.
- Get to Meet People – Staying in hostels allows you to meet new people and talk to them. It is a good way to socialize with other fellow travelers and learn a few interesting things about them and their nationalities. Hostels have common areas where travelers from all over the world come and have a nice talk.
- Service – Similar to hotels, a few good hostels can provide services such as booking for transportation to their guests. There are other services offered in hostels such as laundry, food and bar, movie nights etc.
- Allows you to Negotiate – if you happen to extend your stay, then you can always negotiate the price at the reception desk. And if you happen to travel during the low season, then even better.
