I am sorry I haven't introduced myself before, but I've been reading and writing some threads here. My name is Esther, I am 26 and I run a hostel in Buzios, Brazil. My partners in the business are my husband and his uncle. We've opened on Junuary, 2009 and I am totally loving the job. When the hostel is full, the money is good. When the hostel is kind of empty, I get time to meet the most interesting people.
I'll keep posting so you will know more about me. Oh... And I have to say: congratulations on the work on HM. Greatest source of good information I've ever seen.
