Which is better hotel or hostel?
If you’re traveling and want your privacy, then a hotel is the winner here. If you’re looking to interact with other travelers, and don’t mind a little less privacy, then hostels could easily wint this category. Since there is much greater privacy in a hotel room, I’ll say hotels win this one.

Hostels abroad are filled with foreign and American travelers, and there’s no reason these travelers wouldn’t opt for shared accommodation in the US, too.
