Hostel culture attracting all ages – not just the young

The hostel market is booming in Guadalajara, and around Mexico in general as the country warms up to a concept that was born 100 years ago in Germany. Hostels differ from their older, more famous cousins, hotels, in a number of ways. Whereas guests in a hotel might interact with the reception desk and with room service by telephone, the whole design of the hostel encourages guests to interact with each other and promotes cultural exchange and activities in the city.

Here are some suggestions for the special someone(s) in your life on that particular day.
