Hostelling is, simply put, the act of staying in hostels while you're on your travels. Largely referred to as 'backpacking', this form of travel is usually done on a budget and is not for the faint at heart. Hostelling, or backpacking, takes people to parts of the world they had never even heard of before leaving the save haven of their homeland. It sees people learning local customs and traditions and eating food made from things they never thought they would put in their mouths. It sees people sharing confined spaces with several different nationalities night after night. But, on the whole it sees them enjoying a once in a life time experience which cannot be condensed into a plan or an itinerary. So if you are partial to planning everything with military precision, for example, then it's probably not for you.
