    'Slice on the stone' – A Portuguese speciality

    Apr152011

    The first time I visited Lisbon was just under four years ago when I stayed in one of its top hostels, Oasis Mansion. After checking in, I asked Damian the manager there about good places to eat out, among other things. “Do you like meat?” he asked. “Absolutely,” I replied enthusiastically. “Then you need to check out ‘Cabacas’ for a ‘slice on the stone’ – it’s a Portuguese speciality”.

    Hostelworld.com 'How to save money in...' videos named as an Official Honouree at the Webby Awards

    Apr142011

    In August 2008 we introduced our very first type of city guide video here at Hostelworld.com – the '10 things you need to know about…' videos.

We like to think they’re good videos, full of good ways to save money. Thankfully, we’re not the only ones as they’ve been named as an ‘Official Honouree’ at this year’s Webby Awards.

    FCO in the UK deem Tokyo safe to travel to

    Apr082011

    We were all horrified by the images we saw on television on March 11th from Japan as an earthquake and ensuing tsunami caused utter devastation to the north east of Japan and other areas too. Even Tokyo, some 365 kilometres from Sendai (one of the worst affected cities) felt the force of the quake. But thankfully, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK no longer advise against travel to the Japanese capital.

    Why touristy is good

    Apr012011
