Hostel advice?
« on: December 08, 2009, 11:44:24 PM »
1) Book hostels in advance - it gives you peace of mind that you know you have a bed for the night, also you can book one hostel for the duration of your stay and won't need to move to a different hostel every day of your stay in one place which is what some people we met ended up doing.

2) DON'T book a place based on the pictures you see on the internet and the reviews may not always be that reliable either which is what we found with one hostel that we booked - it wasn't really a hostel at all more like a strange student house run by a very questionable person - we left after one night and we only stayed there at all because we arrived too late to find anywhere else...

3) Take a guide to Europe with you that has the names, addresses and phone numbers of reputable hostels in it so that should you need to find somewhere else you have all the info with you and don't have to traipse across the city with all your luggage just searching for a place. Tourist info are very good at knowing places to stay which are well-known and inhabitable if you don't have a guide

If you are travelling during off-peak tourism season then it's best to book a hotel online for one or two days so that you can look for better options while there. Also, in case the hotel sucks you can just leave after the two days...if it's great you can extend your stay. Online pictures lie sometimes. Be safe
