It would be best to make many decisions when traveling: where to stay, what to bring, and how to get there. The location of your trip and your budget will impact these decisions. You will need a place to relax and sleep, no matter where you travel or what you do.

It is important to decide between a hostel and a hotel when researching where to stay. Both options have their advantages, so think about what you need from your living arrangements before you make a booking.

We’ll be discussing how a hotel is different from a hostel in the next section.

What do they look like?

A hotel will provide a private bedroom with a bathroom and other personal amenities. Apart from a fridge, hairdryer and HD TV, many hotels offer additional amenities such as luxury linens and a bathroom. Depending on the hotel’s size, you may find a spa or exercise facility, restaurants, or live entertainment. A hotel will have a larger staff than a hostel.

Hostels are similar to college dormitories. A hostel is a place where multiple people can share a room. They also share bathrooms and showers. Hostels may have fewer staff than hotels and offer fewer amenities. Hostels are popular with single travelers and young people looking to save money on lodging.


You will find more amenities in a hotel than at a hostel. You will have your own space with fresh sheets, a TV and a bathroom. There will also be iron in your room. You’ll find plenty of other things to do outside of your bedroom. You can take a quick dip at the pool, book a private day at the spa or get in a workout at the gym. Or, you can enjoy a delicious meal at the restaurant in-house.

Hostels offer simpler accommodation. A hostel will offer you a shared bathroom and a bed to rest in, but not all of them. Private rooms are available in some hostels, but these are not guaranteed and may cost more. Some hostels may offer amenities such as a common area with a bar or computer. Unlike a hotel, you don’t have the full support of a staff member at a hostel. No one can recommend places to eat or sights to see.


Apart from the many amenities, privacy is the biggest difference between a hostel and a hotel. If you need privacy, a hotel will provide it. After a busy day, it’s best to relax and be away from others. You won’t get the privacy you would look at a hotel, but you will have it all in a hostel. Even if you have a private room, other people still share the bathrooms and showers. Hostels make it difficult to have some alone time.
