FAQ's - Questions about hostelling

What kind of facilities are available in hostels?

Most (but not all) establishments will offer a number of facilities such as laundry room, telephone, internet connection, lockers for your things, and a breakfast service. Some may offer more than others. Every establishment on our site has an indication of the facilities it provides, so you can be sure to get what you need.

Is breakfast included in hostels? Can I cook in hostels?

Usually, breakfast is not included in the price, but it's reasonably cheap and abundant in quantity. Some hostels offer cooking facilities, such as a kitchen complete with pots and everything you need. Other hostels will be more than happy to give you advice about the cheapest bars and food outlets in the neighbourhood.

Do I need to bring my own bed linen or sleeping bag?

This is not an issue if you are booking a Hotel or Bed & Breakfast room. Otherwise, while some hostels do provide linen free of charge, others will apply a charge for this service or simply not offer it. All hostels provide duvets or blankets and private rooms will usually include linen. Once again, it is worth checking the hostel's microsite before travelling.
