Are you interested in writing, traveling and earning money while being on the road?
Would you like to share unique travel guides with the world?
All you need is local knowledge, a camera and a laptop. It is that simple.
We are Hostelgeeks, and we collect the worlds finest hostels under one roof; the 5 Star Hostels.
We are currently looking for curious travelers with an eye for the unusual and interesting side of traveling the world. In the process of updating our city guides, we are looking for experts in different destinations around the world. This could either be a local or a traveler that knows the city really well.
Would you like to help us sharing handmade city guides?
In our city guides we are always looking behind the main sights and obvious activities. Paris has more to offer than its Eiffel Tower, Barcelona is more than Sagrada Familia.
If you enjoy doing the activities and things outside the tourist box, we are looking for you!
