Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Two hundred hostels in 30 major European cities are profiled here, with all the details young travelers need along with frank descriptions and helpful tips. On the Munich Neuhausen Hostel, for example: "There's one giant thirty-bed dormitory they call the "stable," with stinking socks and snorers all around; if you end up here you'll want to lock up your stuff fast." Icons provide information on hostel aspects like hospitality, safety, cleanliness and more at a glance, and all the necessary details like addresses, phone numbers, rates, hours and so on are listed as well, along with several paragraphs describing each hostel's accommodations and atmosphere. In addition, the authors offer directions and tips on nearby cheap eats and attractions in the area. Introductory chapters explain hostelling and give tips on traveling around Europe, getting around, money, and more. A great resource for student travelers and public libraries. (Hostels series).. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Globe Pequot, 394p. illus. maps.,
