These hostels are strung across the continent and located within a day's walk or bicycle ride from each other. The American youth hostels membership pass, required for admittance, should be obtained before going abroad. Student hostels are centrally located in European cities. Many of them are university dormitories in winter and converted to hostels during summer vacation, Cost per night is between $2 and $4. An international student identity card is required for entrance and must be obtained before going. However, at some student hostels any kind of student I.D. is sufficient. —Private hostels-are-actually- not'* hostels but small inexpensive lodgings which are scattered around Europe and require no membership card ' or pass.
