Hostel in the ForestBrunswick, Georgia, USA:The Hostel in the Forest has operated as an International Youth Hostel for 32 years. We are world renowned for our geodesic domes and 9 tree houses, which were built and have been sustained entirely by volunteers. The Hostel sits on 120 acres of forest and wetlands, 2 miles from H.W.95 in Brunswick, Georgia. It is located short distances from the famous “Golden Isles” of St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island.

The YHA hostel features lofty ceilings and a sundeck overlooking a stunning pool area. Backpackers can enjoy sun lounges, hammocks on shaded verandahs, regular BBQ meals, the latest international newspapers and magazines, a great little library, CD player, board games… and the hostel has NO TV!”

KadirOlympos, Turkey:Kadir’s Tree Houses now has two bars, serving guests from lunch until the last guest leaves, and a 150 seat seafood restaurant and snack bar. With its unspoilt scenery and fascinating Lycian history, this part of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast is the perfect place for an unforgettable holiday.
