When I checked into the International Youth Hostel, little did I expect that I’ll be meeting an extremely interesting set of people. 1) A professional tennis coach from Bangalore who also runs an industrial chemical manufacturing firm and a catering house. 2)An educational consultant from Bombay who in his own words provides services from ‘KG to PG’ !! and 3) A professor of Ayurvedic medicine from Hindu Banaras University from Varanasi ! In a matter of few hours, absolute strangers became close friends. Its rare to find such an outgoing, extrovertish bunch of people…. reasons precisely why I love staying at International Hostels as against hotels (besides money ofcourse).
