The list was compiled by the budget conscious website HostelBookers.com, who rated the locations on a host of categories, with affordability being the dominant criteria. These hostels range in price from £8-£48 a night, which works out to about $12-$72. Credit crunch or not, that’s a great deal for some outstanding places to hit the slopes.
Some of the places to make the cut include Cube Savognin in Switzerland, which comes highly recommended for it’s location (just 50 meters from the cable car), and it’s bar that serves up drinks and snacks 24 hours a day. Prices start at £36 ($54) and include a one day lift pass for Savognin per booked night.
The rest of list is populated with similar deals from hostels dotting the world. There are recommendations for Poland, Austria, Japan, and more. They even found a budget recommendation in Breckenridge here in the States, giving the nod to the Fireside Innfor it’s proximity to stores and restaurants, 10 minute walk to the slopes, and £20 ($30) per night price tag.
This list is proof positive you can still have a good time without spending too much money, so don’t put off those travel plans just because the global economy is in the dumper. Think of the poor snow bunnies!
