THL Update: July 27, 2014Mehdy Ghannad Jul. 26, 2014
The Hostel Life is still making strides as we just signed a distribution deal with FOX Spain! The shows are scheduled to be aired in early September of this year and we are working diligently to prepare the shows for network TV.

We have also signed a deal with Ananda Media to help further distribute the shows throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Nikki Vargas Feb. 23, 2014Sitting in a lagoon, covered in mud, in the middle of the Colombian jungle while a local woman poured buckets of water on my head; I couldn't help but laugh at how a mere 48 hours earlier I was sitting at a desk in New York City.
The Perfect Hostel in Amsterdam
Samantha Poccia Sep. 04, 2013When looking for a place to stay in Amsterdam, my friends and I knew we wanted to find a hostel in a central location for a reasonable price where we felt safe.
