The hostel scene in the US may increase by one.
Milwaukee's first hostel proposed for Walker's Point
A local couple hope to open Milwaukee’s first hostel in Walker’s Point.
The Milwaukee Board of Zoning Appeals will hear a zoning request for the property Dec. 13.
“I’m hoping if nothing else it will bring more young tourism to Milwaukee... especially international tourism,” she said. “You cannot grab international tourism unless you have a hostel.”
They are planning to open a bike rental shop in conjunction with the hostel. Fundraising efforts are underway to raise $75,000USD for the two businesses via loans from the Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corp. and a Kickstarter proposal.
They want to have the hostel open for guests by Spring 2013.
Good luck Carolyn and Tristan!
