Well, when we stayed in Mar del Plata (and that was the first time I had ever slept in a hostel) what we did was look up the hostel on a search engine, but we didnt have any credit cards so then we Googled the hostel and found it's own web site. And that's how we contacted them. The thing was that we had to make a money deposit to their bank account... i guess they don't want you reserving beds when they dont have a guaranty that you'll actually show up.
Been to: Argentina, Chile, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt. Greece, Turkey, England, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Belgium, USA, Mexico, Spain, Monaco, Czech Republic, Ireland and Uruguay.
Next trip: Still pondering the possibilities for January 2009... * OH THE MYSTERY!! *
The travel bug is insatiable
