I wonder if this means we will also start seeing a push to market hostels to an older crowd. I know a family of 5 who stays in them all the time when traveling, as it is a very cost effective way for their group to stay comfortably. For our upcoming trip to Europe, I would have liked to have used hostels, but still felt as though they were targeted for kids backpacking their way through multiple cities on a budget. It will be interesting to see if this new face-lift includes more couples and family rooms and a new marketing push.


On the topic of hostels, you guys should check out this article in the Post about the "Loftstel" up in Petworth here in DC. It's basically a semi-long term hostel for people who are in the area for internships or whatever. Sounds pretty cool.
