					Hostels usually offer single beds in private rooms, doubles, or dorm
rooms. Booking a room via the internet has become easy. Cheap rooms are
available in hostels in most cities and towns around the world.

A hostel or youth hostel is essentially a form of accommodation that
offers reasonably priced, shared accommodation to travellers in either
private or dormitory rooms. When the going gets tough, many backpackers
find relief at budget hotels. There are hostels in castles, in teepees
and in railroad carriages.

Safeguard your important documents and money - Get one of those thin
money belts that fit inside your clothes. That way you can carry your
passport and money with you at all times. There are as many different
atmospheres as there are hostels Tip of the day - Always carry your
student or youth card because you may be able to get a discount.

Many hostels offer a wide range of activities - from city tours to white
water-rafting. Hostelling is, in part, the act of traveling and staying
in hostels, and is referred to as "backpacking" in many parts of the
world. Generally, large city hostels are open 24 hours per day, while
others may have shorter opening hours.

Many hostels in the country are so quiet you can hear your heart beat.
The majority of hostels around the world are independently owned and many
of these have their own bars and restaurants. Almost all hostels offer
lockers, either free of charge or for hire so that people staying in
dormitories can lock up their valuables. During the daytime, there is
usually a lockout time from early morning to late afternoon when the
rooms are being cleaned.
