What is a Hostel?


Hostels are an affordable and practical place to stay for all types of travelers.

Hostels have been around in the 1900s. It started in Germany according to Wikipedia and it was made for youngsters — the youth. Because of it’s natural location, it’s intention was to give the youth the better air to breathe and allow them to learn responsibility as each one travels from one place to another in their country.

Such an accommodation evolved to what we know now as hostels — a budget place for all types of travelers looking for something — that are cost-efficient and does the job as travelers do their business and activities in location of destinations.

Before, hotels and motels as the norm for local and foreign travelers but today the affordable and on-budget feature of hostels make it the most attractive place to save up more money for budget-conscious tourists and business travelers alike. Hostels in the  urban places are lean in numbers but hostel spots are fast growing in provinces where tourism is thriving.

Lastly, there are coffee shops, a fitness place, a wall climbing space and trampoline center all within 5 minutes walking distance.
