Youth hostels, youth accommodations and boyscout camps

Youth hostels and boyscout camps

Youth hostels, youth accommodations and boyscout camps usually provide a sufficient amount of beds for large groups. However, they put more and more emphasis on 4-bed rooms and double rooms to be on par with rising expectations of quality and comfort. Sleeping bags are starting to be replaced by duvets, modern locking systems allow checked-in guests of Swiss youth hostels to plan their arrival with more flexibility than ever before. Still, reasonably priced offers are first priority and that will remain unchanged. Boyscout camps are not exclusive to scouts or schools. They offer quick access to nature and sports facilities, a lot of autonomy and a few extras. For example, there are boyscout camps which have been designed handicapped accessible or provide their own campground. Whoever is looking for good value for money and a true holiday atmosphere is at the right place.
