Hmmm. What exactly is a hostel? It is not "hotel" misspelled. Hostels provide budget-oriented, sociable accommodations where guests can rent a bed, usually a bunk bed, in a dormitory and share a bathroom, lounge and sometimes a kitchen. Dorms can be mixed or single-sex, although private rooms may also be available. Typical prices range from around $20 to $40 per night, with perhaps an extra charge for a towel or to use a hot tub if there is one, for example.

Backpackers and solo travellers have found hostels in great locations around the world from peaceful bucolic spots to right in the heart of big cities within easy reach of tourist attractions. You can't beat the locations in California like Pigeon Point, Montara near Pacifica, Sacramento, downtown San Francisco and even cliffside at the ocean. When some people think of hostels, they think of college-age kids bumming around the country. Not so anymore. In fact, Hosteling International USA long ago dropped the "Youth" from its title, and a growing group of hostellers are over the age of 55.

Hostels are not the place for introverts. It's more like sharing a big house with a lot of housemates, but it's a chance to meet fellow travellers in unique circumstances enjoying life in the slow lane! The few samples shown here are, from top to bottom, the Sacramento International Hostel, the Marin Headlands Hostel, Big Bear Lake Hostel, Pigeon Point Hostal, and Jughandle Farm on the Mendocino Coast.
