Just out of sheer interest, as none existed before: what is your TOP 5 list of locations in the USA that have a hostel? Great hostels can also be nominated.

Thank you!

I have two questions:

  • Are you conducting a survey for some sort of project (college, business, etc)?
  • Or, is that just out of personal curiosity?

Our members will be willing to answer your question if it is just a personal inquiry. Otherwise, it will be considered a promotional request and flagged as spam.

Many hostels, hotels and travel companies will post such requests only to come back and promote their own properties. The fact that you use the term 'nominated' is a red flag that this is not just a personal request. I do hope you can prove that to be a wrong assumption, otherwise this thread will be deleted as promotional.

Travellerspoint is very strict about promotional threads and anything that could be/is a request for college project input.

Please see this thread in General Talk.

Hi Isadora- This is no way a research question: otherwise I'd have told you. Just from my own interest, I am currently constructing a trip through the USA (35 days from New York to LA) and see there are so many options. Therefore I thought it might be interesting hearing some other's their most beautiful and recommendable spots. Excuse me that I signed up for this forum and asked it here, otherwise I'll move on to another one.

Quad, thank you for the verification. The spam tactic I described above has become more and more prevalent, hence my inquiry.

Have fun planning your trip and I'm sure there will be members who will have several suggestions for you. Having stated your plan(s), that will help people with their recommendations too. Again, enjoy. :)

Isa now returns this thread to it's originally schedule topic about hostels.

According to Travellerspoint's stats (USA TOP Spots at top right on the USA hostels page), the top 5 locations are:

New York
San Fran

And then a pretty even split between a number of places including DC and Honolulu.
