• What is a BOUTIQUE HOSTEL?
The Boutique Hostel is a new segment that mingles the quality and comfort of fully equipped rooms of a hotel with the friendly community life style of a hostel.
This new concept offers guests more privacy and at the same time it gives them the chance to relate to other guests. Guests have free access to common areas where they can cook, do their laundry or just watch TV.
Another important issue to take into account is that the Boutique Hostel offers the same full time service as that of a hotel boutique at a much lower rate.
The Boutique Hostel is ideal for couples or salesmen that want comfort at a reasonable price. It differs from a hostel because you get better private rooms and service and it differs from Bed and Breakfast because you are able to use the common areas for free whenever you want it.
