Great Insights! I would like to add that not only 5stars like Hilton are taking additional safety measures. I am a specialist in the Hostelling area (having a Hostel myself in Poland). Over the last 2 months we worked HARD to ensure the safety of our guests. Some of our measures:

  • Hyper-Frequent desinfection
  • Catering breakfast (instead of self-service) to be consumed in the room.
  • Reduced Occupation, capped at 60%
  • All rooms are private.
  • Restriction of common spaces.

The measures we took are similar to what other hostels took all over Europe.

So, bottom line: Hostels are safer and safer and we are missing you, dear travellers!
