Hello! Red Romina here I’m at the HI Chicago hostel to answer some of your questions about what it’s like to stay in hostels. Do I have to share a room? While many hostels do actually offer private rooms, dorm rooms are awesome if you’re traveling solo. They’re the first place you’ll meet people and The best way to make the most of your budget. How is a hostel different from a hotel or a house rental? What makes hostels different is the feeling of community inside. It’s not just a place where people stay. It’s a place where people come together. Hostels are only in Europe though, right? Believe it or not, there are fantastic hostels all over the US. HI USA’s got over 50 in a variety of unique locations. Check out HIUSA.org and find your next adventure today. Until next time – I’ll see you when I see you!
