Non-standard Hostel Amenities

Any non-standard features you have seen in any hostels during your travel? Or features you would like to see?

Hi everyone. I am a seasoned backpacker myself and am planning to open a hostel in the future.

Bookings & Charges

I’ve recently booked 4 hostels- one in Amsterdam, Paris, London, & Dublin. My question is about the charges that have been made. When I booked them, I agreed to pay a certain price, well at the time, it was “Total Paid”. After looking at my bank account, the charges are slightly different. Note: service charges were made individually, so that’s not the reason for the discrepancy. Here’s an example: On a confirmation email, the total paid was reported as 14.18 US Dollars, but my bank account was charged $14.79.

Euro Trip. Lots of places

Hey, I am currently a student in Umea, Sweden. I am planning trip for Europe early next year or in December. Its really flexible. Its just that i need to use a 30 day Eurail pass or Eurolines pass, because thats the cheapest afaik. Forgive me for saying that on a tourist savvy forum but i am really not interested in food, culture, natural scenaries for that matter. I am more of an academic who wants to study history, architecture, remnants, and values in general. Having said that, i also need to hop quickly from places to places because 1. I have only 30 days on my eurail pass 2.

sleeping couchette or hostel??

i’ve been reading that you can try to save money by skipping a night in a hostel, and traveling throughout the night instead. true or false?
and if true, how much does it cost to reserve a couchette on a train? how far in advance can you reserve and can you do it through germany’s deutsche bahn website, or is it best to book it once in europe at the train station itself?

places to stay in Verona & Siena

I’m heading to Italy next week and still haven’t found a decent cheap place to stay in Verona and Siena. Seems like both places only have Private rooms with double beds which means I have to pay for 2. I’m travelling by myself by the way

Anyways.. I was hoping if someone can recommend me a decent cheap place with either single private or dorm beds to sleep for the night in both Siena and Verona.

Please help!!
