March 8th is a beautiful day and almost every country in the world celebrates the Women's Day. An opportunity not to be missed to reflect on the general conditions in the women rights universe nowadays, the discrimination that many women unfortunately still have to suffer today, but also, why not, to celebrate this special day with your best friends.
At HostelsClub we are sure that there's no better way to celebrate the independence and dignity of women than to take a nice trip together with the girls you know for a long time and who occupy a special place in your heart.
