If you’ve been researching a detox plan for the New Year, chances are you’ve encountered quite a few ads for pricey retreats.
But finding a place where you can rid yourself of the excesses of the holiday season – or any season for that matter – doesn’t have to be expensive.
Staying in cheap accommodations in a great location can be just as cleansing as those strict, organized getaway regimes.
Here are four international hostels that will help you detox:
Hat tip to Hi Hostels for the heads up on these locations.
Some private bedrooms at Lands End YHA command fine views of the Atlantic Ocean. Porth Nanven Beach and the South West Coast Path are both just a short walk away.
Magnetic Island sits just five miles off the coast of Queensland. The Bungalow Bay Koala Village sits within six and half acres of tropical surroundings near the island’s iconic Horseshoe Bay.
You may have to splurge a little on the flights, but once in Fiji, treatments, food and accommodations are relatively affordable. Nadi Bay Resort is located just 10 minutes from Nadi airport. An upmarket hostel, it has two pools, a restaurant, beach bar and its very own day spa.
They say water’s therapeutic, so what could be better than sleeping on it – well, on a boat anyway. The Botel Fortuna Hostel is a boat anchored in the Danube. Its en-suite cabins have views of the nearby Margit Island. The terrace is a great place to enjoy the stunning surroundings with a cocktail in hand.
