Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I guess I thought there were more hostels in the US. Probably about half of the states have either one or no hostels. Of course the more traveled states like alaska and hawaii have more (about 8) and California has over 20.

The rating are fairly detailed and relevant to what you need to know. And from what I could find this is the only book of its kind.
