Youth Hostel

The youth, from rural as well as urban areas, travel for various reasons, such as education, adventures, and recreation. Youth hostels were established to cater to the youth on the move, who couldn't afford steep hotel rents. A youth hostel generally provides low-cost dormitory accommodation with common bathing and cafeteria facilities. They may also provide kitchens for self-catering. Example are YMCA hotels.
