Looking for accommodations that don’t pummel your wallet? Hotels can easily account for 50% of our travel expenses. If your travel budget has limitations, hostels will give your adventures a stimulus.  Hostels are often associated with 20 year old backpackers roaming the world. Hostels have matured. Now those of us in our 50′s, 60′s, 70′s can enjoy the benefits of hostels.
Hostels can be located for domestic and international travel. Wherever your travels take you, contact Hostelling International to access 4,000 hostels in over 80 countries. Or, do an internet search for hostels in your travel area.
