As European hostels slowly start to open (albeit without Americans) they are working hard to strike a balance between safety and fun. The good news is The New York Times noticed and recently published a story entitled "Hostels Try to Adapt for the Covid-19 Era".
[Yeah, I know, I also wish the story was about a more exciting topic but I, for one, will take what I can get]
The good news is a number of HostelManagement.com members were featured in the story including supporting members Kraig Cooper and Jennifer Bryant of The MadHouse Hostel in Prague, supporting member Marco Coppola of the Yellow Hostel in Rome, plus ClinkNOORD in Amsterdam and The Beehive in Rome.
I especially enjoyed the video by ClinkNOORD.
