Save Money And Stay At An Anchorage Hostel

By Sharlene Fleming

A great way to get to see the great state of Alaska and not go broke is to stay at an Anchorage hostel when in the area. Backpacking across the tundra is considered to be the latest cool thing to do for anyone who does not want to do it across Europe. When you need shelter, avoid high-priced hotels this way.

Staying in hostels is something many people enjoy. It gives them more money for other things but also introduces them to a wide range of people and cultures. It is a precursor to staying in the dorms or living with friends while in school. This may be the first time you have to live with people who are not family.

You will have a bed. The room will have anywhere from 4 to 8 beds in it. Some hostels will have rooms that are gender specific but most will not. Consider it a big sleep over. The only drawback is if you are a light sleeper and go to bed early. Odds are pretty good people will be up and making noise well into the night.

Make sure you are open and learn from the people you are living with. If they are from a different culture than yours, do not put it down or dismiss it unfairly. Share your food with them and eat some of theirs, it is a great way to broaden your horizons. You may not have another chance to meet someone from different countries and live with them.

Depending on the time of year you go, you could very well end up spending a good portion of your time indoors. The weather and sunlight hours can be tough on travelers. After some time in the same hostel, you may end up with some new travel companions. It can be a good thing to go all across the state with a few people you have met along the way.

Sharing with each other can make your trip easier. This includes sharing different chores. One of you can cook while the other cleans things up. Changing who is cooking means you will get to experience foods from different locales. If money gets tight, stay in the area for a bit more time and take a day job to make some extra cash.

Staying in a hostel is not only for young people. It is a good thing for families too. Young kids and teens will have others to hang out and play with while adults will also have others to socialize with. If you are traveling with a group, it is the perfect way to save money on shelter so you have more for activities and different sites.

Staying in an Anchorage hostel can be a very rewarding experience. You will not only be given the opportunity to learn about others, but it will save you enough money to be able to do the extra things on your trip. The people you meet could end up inviting you to their home for a vacation. It would be nice for you to invite them to yours too. Share and learn, be open and considerate, it is a great thing to teach your children and a good lesson for yourself.
