Why Stay in Hostels?
Hostels are a dream accommodation for adventure travelers. They allow you to save money and connect with likeminded people. Many adventure related tours and activities don’t come cheap. So why not save money by staying in affordable accommodations so that you can afford more of the good stuff like bungee jumping and jungle tours?
You are also bound to run into other budget minded adventurers at hostels. Besides being a great way to meet people with similar interests, it’s a great way to find out about other activities in there, which ones are good, and which ones bite.
The staff at hostels are usually very informative about the area. Because their guests are usually budget conscious, they tend to know lots of free things to do in the area. Hostel staff can often tell you about local adventures that are free of charge like waterfalls, cool hikes, and other “off the map” sort of adventures.
Camping at Hostels
Its not uncommon for hostels to offer camping areas. Sometimes these camping areas are make shift bunks like you find backpacking, other times they are just standard camping areas. If you have your own gear, these camping areas usually cost less than the rest of the hostel, but you still enjoy all of the benefits. Thus leaving you more money to do what you came for, being adventurous!
