A hostel can be described as an inexpensive place for travellers and hikers to stay overnight. The other synonyms for the word hostel are inn and lodge. A hostel is used as a temporary accommodation for a short duration for the youth, especially people who were engaged in outdoor sport, picnics and cultural trips.

In a hostel guests often rent a bed (sometimes a bunk bed) as in a dormitory and share common bathroom, kitchen, and lounge rooms. A hostel can also have private rooms. People prefer a hostel to alternatives like hotels because the former has a low cost of accommodation. Besides in a hostel, one gets the opportunity to meet a lot of people and travellers from other parts of the country or world. Though a hostel was once restricted only to the youth, presently, people of all ages stay in a hostel.
