Independent Hostel Guide
Independent hostels, like youth hostels, have private rooms and dorms, flexible lengths of stay and self catering kitchens. Designed with walkers and cyclist in mind they have drying rooms, boot racks and no chintz. Bunkhouses and camping barns are both types of independent hostels. All hostels welcome groups and are able to let the whole building sole use to a group of the right size. They also welcome individuals, families and smaller groups and provide a friendly way to experience a local community. Often family businesses the owner at the hostel will be a wealth of information about the area. Many independent hostels provide a Best Price Guarantee, ensuring the prices they offer you through the independent hostels website and their own website/offices are the best value you will find.
