A hostel can be defined as a budget-friendly type of shared accommodation with a common area. Hostels usually include dorm style rooms for travelers, but also private guests rooms and hotel-like amenities are nowadays common. Hostels tend to focus on creating a sociable environment and cost much less than a hotel.
Hostels provide various benefits to travelers. Few of them are: cheap beds, wireless internet, knowledgeable locals, great locations, meeting other travelers, relaxed atmosphere, communal spirit, and guest kitchen.
Hostels can be divided into different types, which include cheap hostels, party hostels, activity or adventure hostels, eco-hostels, luxury hostels, family hostels and other types of hostels. And, hostel travelers are broadly categorized into two types: Backpackers and Flashpackers.
The hostel market can be segmented on the basis of booking channel (Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), Offline Intermediaries, Offline Direct and Hostel Websites); and guests (Youth Groups/School Groups, Single Tourists, Families, Couples and Corporate).
The global hostel market has increased at a significant CAGR during the years 2015-2019 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next four years i.e. 2020-2024 tremendously.
