3. Best Hostels In – Guides

Not all destinations in the world have a 5 Star Hostel. The majority of hostels are still not in good quality. You can easily find worn-out and dirty hostels

We want to help our readers to always find the best hostel choice for their destination.

So we created the so-called “best hostels in” guides for destinations with NO 5 Star Hostel.

4. Secret city guides – tips by friends for friends

We do not enjoy boring city guides!

But we are excited about hidden gems and local secrets. We love these kinds of tips a friend gives you. And this is how all our travel guides work.

All guides are written by us, locals and expats – people who lived and experienced the city!

We try to keep our best to provide you useful information off the beaten path! And then, sometimes, we cannot keep it for ourselves, and we add even more geeky tips and extra tips.
