Hostel is an accommodation usually of a lower standard than traditional hotel. Hostels differs from a hotel mainly in common areas and usually have more beds in one room. Hostels also have common areas available to all guests: a kitchen, and often even a shared bathroom. It is characteristic for the hostels to rent a bed instead of the whole room. Rooms in youth hostels are often shared, but usually there is also the possibility of renting a double or triple room. All this makes hostels cheap accommodation and willingly chosen by young people.
What can we expect in hostels?
While in hostels we can spend the night in dormitory rooms, there are certain standards that such accommodation almost always meet. Free internet access, a common space with an available TV and game console, a fully equipped kitchen - these are the standards that most of modern hostels meet. Increasingly, we will also find towels in the rooms, the possibility of buying breakfast or accommodation in a private room with a bathroom. However, such facilities will be charged extra.
