What are hostels like? Hostels are fun, lively meeting places, full of travellers and backpackers like you. Some hostels are historic castles, rustic cabins or even docked sailing ships. There are big city hostels that can accommodate 300 people and hostels that sleep fewer than 20 people. Keeping with the true spirit of travel adventure, each hostel offers a different experience.
