WHAT IS A HOSTEL?
A hostel is a place where guests from all over the world come together to connect over their shared love of travel. For those who are looking for shared accommodation, hostels offer an alternative to the expensive and isolating experience of a hotel. For those who are looking for more privacy, our hostel offers private rooms that still share kitchen and bathroom space. The kitchens are fully stocked and have a full sized fridge and gas stove and oven for guests to use during their stay.
A hostel is not only a place for travelers to stay the night on a budget, a hostel is a place to foster community and forge friendships between people that may have otherwise never met. Hostels have shared bathrooms and community kitchens that allow for natural interactions between travelers to communicate and connect. More importantly, hostels have hostellers, like-minded travelers that believe in broadening their horizons through seeing the world, learning new languages and honoring cultures different from their own.
