One of your biggest bills on the road is usually where you choose to sleep. An easy way to slash your accommodation budget is to stay in hostels!
Many travelers have heard of hostels but if you've never been to one, it's hard to know what to expect. Are they clean? Will your luggage be safe? Do you need to share a bunk bed? The barrier to entry can be high if you don't personally know anyone who has been there and done that.
Luckily, our speaker Katie has stayed in over 75 hostels around the world from the Southeast Asia to the US to Mexico and all over Europe and is eager to tell us all about it. As a hostel enthusiast, Katie truly believes that hostels are a great way to save money, step out of your comfort zone, meet new people from all different backgrounds, and get great on-the-ground travel recommendations.
This presentation will cover:
- Hotels vs. hostels
- Hostel myths
- Hostel etiquette
- What to bring with you
- Safety & security
- How to find the right hostel for you (and what sites to book with)
If you're new to hostels, you won't want to miss this talk.
