As was previously written in a travelogue, after a night stay in a hostel near downtown Las Vegas, I then went to check-in at The Trump International Hotel.
I was really looking forward to this trip as it would be my first time in Sin City, Las Vegas! And this adventure set the precedent to the passion that is traveling. I must admit that I got a little crazy planning this. Why? Because I booked two different accommodations for this, one on a budget (Hostel Cat) and the other on a luxury hotel (Trump). My though process prior to booking my reservations was I wanted to experience both.
I was told by a friend who couchsurfs and is a couchsurfing host that hostels can be a hit or miss. A hit when you get to hang out with the right group of people and a miss, the other way around. Plus, imagine sharing one room with 6 to 8 other people and sleeping in bunk beds! I just had to experience it for myself before making my own judgment. I'm the type that is not hard to please when it comes to accommodation. As long as the bed and bathroom is clean, I am good.
