Backpacker hostels come with many misconceptions Some people write-off hostels before they’ve even stepped foot in one because of stories they’ve heard, or somebody else’s bad experience or just by their own-misconceptions of them. It’s true, hostels are not hotels and shouldn’t be compared to them, you are not going to get the same service in a hostel that you will in a hotel.
However they are still amongst the most popular budget accommodation options out there; and not just for the price. They can actually become quite an integral part of your traveling experience, and can be much more than just a place to sleep. They are social hubs to meet other like-minded travelers, they can provide a sense of community, give you some home comforts, support networks when you’re feeling low, security. Hostels are also where lifelong friendships and relationships can be formed
