Hostelling for group gatherings
Pay less, experience more! Hostelling is informal, sociable, fun and very good value for groups which can include businesses, schools, clubs, or family and friends. Some hostels have function rooms and offer adventure and other activities. All have shared self catering facilities which not only helps keep costs down but is a perfect way to meet like-minded people. Special rates can often be on offer mid week and off season, apply for information to the individual Hostel.
