    7 tips??………so not 10 tips??……I think you need to edit your title.

    I actually disagree with the 2nd tip. I would put price over location, especially if you're trying to see more of a city than just the tourist sites. Also, it's important if you visit a city like Paris where all the tourist locations aren't in the same arrondissement anyway.

    If you're staying in a city more than a couple days, simply buy a weekly transit pass because you're going to need it anyway to travel back and forth with ease without going broke. Then, simply stay where you can afford and hop on public transit using your pass. This way, you can people watch and interact with locals — not just tourists or shops catering to locals. It'll give you a more authentic experience of how people in that city truly live.

    I stayed at a Toronto hostel in Danforth (on the far east side) and had an wonderful experience. It wasn't near a lot of tourist locations, but the subway/bus station was literally a 4 min-walk around the corner. It took 15 min or so to get to the tourist sites, but I got to take in more of the city, people watch, read my book, and just relax as I made my way west into the city centre. I needed the transit pass anyway to go all the places I wanted to go, plus I didn't look and feel like a tourist.

    This is so useful. I used to misunderstand about hostel and thought bad about it but after I had stayed at hostel for the first time I changed my mind. It was better than I thought before and I am the one who falling in love with hostel right now. and thanks for all the good tips.!! :)

    What do you guys think about Waikiki Beachside Hostel in Hawai'i? I'm thinking about going there. I don't smoke, party or drink so I'm not really concerned going on Weekend because I'm introverted. Never done a Hostel before.

    recently i've heard that hostels are for backpackers and i was wondering if you're not a backpacker and just want to stay and travel around the cities are hostels still an option? also is there a time limit? i'm planning a month stay in australia. (:

  18. maia kay

    How many hours did you guys work in the hostel per day? And did you have a choice in what time of day to work?

  19. aj .permadi

    but mostly if you book your hostel by phone in whole europe (except netherlands) they don't speak english! and so hard to communicate lol. and it is true that staying in a hostel make your trip even more interesting! i love it! but still prefer couch surfing though. hostel is just for like last minute emergency option if i didn't get couch.
