HOSTELS

Staying at a hostel can be a lot of fun and a really affordable way to see the world.  One of the biggest reasons to stay at a hostel over a regular hotel is the chances of meeting fellow travelers. Where else can you meet a large number of like-minded travelers? Hostels offer something different than what you get at home and should be considered part of the over all travel experience. Hostels will also often host free events of their own such as local food tastings, movie nights, and walking tours led by hostel staff.

We have selected a handful of recommended hostels in the Australia/NZ region.

 

See the world the way we do.
