“I eventually became such a fan of the world of hostelling that it soon became a goal to run a hostel of my own. After all, one can’t always afford to travel the world, but running a hostel makes it possible for the world to come to you.”
Anyone who has ever stayed in a hostel knows that when tourists and travelers from different backgrounds all come together in one place, anything can happen and there will always be stories! This particular collection of stories, set on an unnamed island in the North Atlantic, provides a personalized, inside look at the world of hostelling.
Chronicled here is a multitude of colorful characters who pass through the hostel’s doors, and the often amusing and sometimes touching events that inevitably unfold. All of this is set against the author’s continuing adventures and misadventures of managing the drama and everything else that running the hostel requires.
Part memoir, part humor, part travelogue, and with a few spooky ghost stories tossed in for good measure, Tales from a Hostel at the Edge of the World has something for all travelers of life and promises to entertain!
