Arthur Frommer writes:
Their founders are among the most active entrepreneurs in travel today... The eruption of hostels -- hostels by the scores -- all over the world, is probably the single biggest news in the world of low-cost travel.
He also mentions HostelManagement.com:
Hostel Management (www.hostelmanagement.com), a new website dealing with the phenomenon, tracks the current state of expansion, hosts a message board for hostel operators, and provides listings for hostels by city, country, and name.
Arthur Frommer is the author of the book Europe on 5 Dollars a Day, first published in 1957. A news article about the book says:
On the 50th anniversary of the book’s publication, Frommer is still being credited with helping to change leisure travel by showing average Americans that they could afford a trip to Europe.
The book is, "widely credited with having launched a massive movement by American tourists to Europe." (bio)
Many thanks to Arthur Frommer for the coverage of hostels, and for the mention of this site!
