        Best Hostels in Central California

        The joy of travel is about the sights, the sounds, and most definitely about the food. It’s also about the people. Meeting fellow wise wanderers and hearing their tales, especially when it comes to local food recommendations, is half the fun of any trip. The best way to build an instant travel buddy group? It has to be staying in a hostel.

        Forget everything you think you know about hostels. These days, hostels come in all shapes and sizes. They also attract a diverse crowd, from students taking a gap year to middle-aged adults grabbing a sojourn between career shifts. Yes, you’ll still find plenty of the backpacker hostel accommodation that offers a simple bed, roof, and door. But you’ll also discover hostels that offer Wi-Fi and communal living spaces where you can play cards or swap travel stories.
