Cheap and Family Friendly?

Yeah, hostels have always been the accommodation of choice for bargain basement travellers, but with mod cons like free internet access, advice with travel arrangements, DVD libraries and TV rooms and free or inexpensive breakfasts that I found when looking at the posh-tels, they're also a perfect solution for getting your family traveling on the cheap.  Hostels are also known for being basic and friendly – which is just what traveling families need – but now the standard of 'basic' is rising to a level of cleanliness my Mum would be happy with - and frankly how much did you love sleeping in a bunk bed as a kid!  So families looking for a deal and some socialising thrown in should check out our list of Family Friendly Hostels.

  • In love with a birds eye view of the world...

    There's a song that says pilots are in love with the sky and it's nice to hear from one of them that it's true: Mark Vanhoenacker is one such pilot, he's just written a piece reminding us of the pleasures of being a passenger in the window seat.
