Break out your old travel journal and get ready to school a new generation of budget travelers. Eurocheapo’s dreadlock-sporting, rucksack-toting, acoustic guitar-playing sibling EuropeanHostels.com is scheduled for relaunch.
But don’t go calling EuropeanHostels the kid sister of the Over There Interactive family. Editor Tom Meyers cut his teeth on EH 7 years ago while living in Berlin, back when Eurocheapo was just a zygote of an idea. Now, both editorial staffs reside in the same office, fighting for turf in a manner akin to a West Side Story showdown.
Step off my train schedule, fool. 5-6-7-8…Nah, not really.
Expect a vastly improved EuropeanHostels this coming spring: expanded listings, increased functionality, and new features like user reviews and discussion forums.
You’ll come for the comprehensive cheap sleep listings but you’ll end up staying for the shoestring fiesta. Or else.
