Spread the Word About Hostels

Tell a friend and spread the word. This is a common saying that can make a huge impact to a wide range of things, from a surprise party, special event, sale bargain, cool place to visit or cheap hostel accommodation.

Word of mouth and having positive feedback from customers can make or break a business, a lot of the time when customer have a good experience, they don’t take the time to spread the word and let other know they enjoyed their stay in a certain Hostel or that there are bargains to be had.

1.jpgBut when something goes wrong, you won’t hear the last about the whole story from a to z, every opportunity is used to tell people what happened.

Its time we all begin to use as much energy, to spread the word about good things, just as much as bad experiences or service, after all we all like to be praised and told we have done a good job.

When it comes to Hostels & budget accommodation many people have a lot of preconceptions and bias ideas of what to expect, coupled with a few bad reviews online for a few Hostels, a lot of people just steer clear of staying at Hostels.

This means that many travellers and holiday makers are paying more for their holiday accommodation than need be and hostels gain a bad reputation because of a few hostels that fall below standard.

Just like any other type of accommodation from Hotels, bed and breakfast, guesthouse or Hostels accommodation, each location needs to be assessed on its own merits, this means researching online, remembering to take into account that just like Hotels different hostels accommodation have different standards.
2.jpg
A hostel in Kowloon will not be the same as hostels in London and youth hostels in Rome but they will all have good and bad points that need to be considered when deciding if they are the right accommodation to stay in.
The same criteria can be used to asses any type of accommodation, some of the main points to think about are

Assessing potential accommodation suitability
Price
Room Type
Location
Transportation Links
Facilities
Services

Take your time to look around and choose an accommodation to suit your budget and taste, but don’t rule out any accommodation type, until you take the time to assess the accommodation for yourself and form your own opinion.

Travel Safe & Sleep Well

Summer Sun is Good For You

Summer Holidays & Sunshine Make you Feel Good

Summer Holidays are the most popular time of year to travel, its not only a great time to get away with family and friends its also one of the times you can benefit the most from a holiday away from home. One thing that should be remembered when organising a summer holiday is that flights, hotels accommodation, youth hostels and prices across the board are quite expensive as its high season, but its worth the money and if you plan well and spend wisely you don’t need to break the bank for a Summer Holiday.

Sunner sunshineThe Number one reason that Summer Time is the most popular time of year to Holiday and travel abroad is that the weather is great in many more countries during Summer than any other time of year, meaning holiday  makers have a much wider choice of where to visit and the places to stay in the city are more varied, from cheap hostels to Luxury Hotels, apartments, budget hotels, guesthouse, group  accommodation and many more.

The close runner up to this is that Summer time means Sunshine, which that exposure to moderate sunshine, not getting sun burnt, or spending all day sunbathing, just talking a walk and spending some time outside in the sun, and using sunscreen when in the sun for extending periods. If these precautions are taken Sunshine can have a lot of benefits:

One of the main benefits of sunlight is to relax and soothe your nerves and boost your mood and make you feel happier. Sunlight increases the production of endorphins and serotonin in your brain making you feel much better, its just a fancy way to say, being in the sun can make you feel relaxed and happy.

Sunlight helps your body convert a form of cholesterol that is present in your skin into vitamin D. This results in lower blood cholesterol levels.

Sunlight improves the function of your liver and helps it to break down toxins and wastes that could lead to cancer and other diseases.

Sunlight encourages better circulation and getting enough sunshine during the day can help you to get a good nights sleep

All these benefits don’t need to be memorised or thought about too deeply, its just worth keeping in the back of your mind why we all love to travel for a Summer Holiday and a holiday during Summer time seems to benefit us all more than a holiday any other time of year.

Moderate Sunshine is Good, for Body, Mind and Soul, so enjoy
