Interesting Look into a Buenos Aires Hostel Site

March 15th, 2009 by Jordan

La Menesunda Youth Hostel in Buenos Aires Argentina has created a short flash animation for the website.  Not sure exactly what they are after, but it’s comical and unique if you’ve ever stayed in a hostel.  I love how the tree is not centered in the garden box.  It shows a very keen attention to detail as most of these trees are in fact never centered no matter where you are.

Hostel Brickette, Positano

December 9th, 2007 by Jordan

Located in Upper Positano, this hostel probably has one of the most amazing views you will find at any hostel. Sitting on the balcony sipping a morning cafe will only cost you 22 euros. Very friendly staff as well when I visited. There’s not much more than eye candy and relaxation around Positano, you also have the option of hoping on the bus or boat and going to Amalfi or Sorrento for a day trip.
