Hostel Room

The hostel room shown above is typical, with beds arranged in a condensed manner, and also lockers to store your belongings in can be seen on the far right of the picture. It allows for a more social atmosphere than a hotel.


Meanwhile, hotel rooms such as these are more isolated and sophisticated in comparison with a hostel.


One of the first questions to consider while planning a trip is “Where do we stay?” Two popular choices are a hotel or a hostel. The more inexpensive of the two is to reside in a hostel. Most hostels have Internet connection, a laundry room, a telephone, lockers in which to store your belongings in, and a breakfast service. The main difference between hostels and hotels is that hostels provide dormitory-like settings in which to stay, whereas hotels are individual rooms for more privacy. However, there is more of a community feel in a hostel as opposed to the solidarity of a hotel room. If you are a social being, a hostel would be beneficial as you would be able to meet all sorts of interesting people. Hostels are, for the most part, safe places to stay, as long as you keep your valuables in a locker and stay on your toes. If your budget is tight, or you are looking to meet new people of all different nationalities and backgrounds, hostels are the best course of action for living quarters. However, if you are feeling as though you’d like more private time, or if you have a few extra Euros to burn, then a hotel would be a more comfortable, safe choice. Another way to save money, whether you decide to stay in a hostel or a hotel is to choose a location outside of the city, because inner city residences are much more expensive than those of outlying towns.
