HOSTEL ONE WORLD, JUST A BUILDING, OR...?
Hostel 1W is located in a building, an old historical building, from 19th century.
Building, which even on first sight, you can see, feel and smell so many stories from ancient history of town Rijeka…
But is it just that?
In general, hosteling or hostels are not what they used to be 10, 15 years ago. Is not just an accommodation for a night, Now, hosteling is a way of travel, even a way of life, life of a true traveler or just a person who knows how to travel low budget and save money and time to spend during their trip experience.
The hostel is place to connect, where languages becomes non-so important, where in a moment you are a stranger, and in the next one you know everyone and you share your experience with other travelers from all over the world. Sometimes you can even find a companion for your next journey.
"Hosteling" is a great way to really meet and get to know better who we really are. We find ourselves gravitating to fresh way of thinking, we become more curious about people and their re relationships with the world. We discover things about ourselves that we didn’t even know before, we learn how to be more patient, loving and caring person. We discover that we are not the same person before we left home. Our experiences change us, Hosteling change us…
Hostels are all about the vibe created by an always-changing community of travelers in a unique , shared space.
At some point, it’s time to get back home. How longer we are away, more difficult we find to put our self into our old life and with time, we sort what is important to keep with us and what to leave behind.
We can compare hostel with freedom…right? - Unreserved, utterly blissful freedom…
The sound of this freedom acts as adrenaline and helps many in getting a taste of what life really is all about.
So, is a hostel JUST a building?
For us, it is so much more than that. :)
