Hello there - so nice to see this website for those of us who love hostelling! I just returned from a month in Italy where I "hostelled all the way". :) It was a great experience and further motivated me to start my own hostel in Northern California... but I don't want to do it alone. I'm single, no kids and able to move on this soon. I'm at the beginning stages of the starting process and would like to find a savvy partner who is as interested in hostelling and providing an excellent experience for travellers as I am. I look forward to hearing from you in a private message or on this public forum. Cheers!
