When I was setting off for Paris, this was my biggest question.  After looking at countless “Budget” Hotels that were super expensive and very unimpressive, I decided to take the leap for the first time in my life and have a Hostel experience. To say that this made me apprehensive is an understatement.  For one, I’m 35, which compared to …
