Thanks, Lindsey, for doing this article.
Can we start having some conversation around a Columbus hostel? It seems only to make sense. I met an Australian guy at a hostel in San Antonio that said he chose the east coast and a southern cross continental route because there were no hostels across our area. Tapping into the awesome backpacking / touring world would add so much to Columbus culture.
What do you think would be the benefit of having a hostel in town?
