It’s a common misconception that hostels are only for the young who can’t afford to stay anywhere else. How wrong that is. Hostels are for anyone.  They offer an alternative to the formality of hotels and holiday cottages.  Book the whole hostel for a re-union of friends and family or book  a room and enjoy self-catering facilities, lounges and gardens.  There’s somewhere to clean your muddy boots and a friendly host on hand to give local advice for the next day’s adventure.  Hostels are for independent, self-sufficient travellers of all ages, backgrounds and income.
