    I can tell that English is not your first language, and there are some things in your comment that are somewhat awkward in English, regarding your comments about youth hostels. However, staying in youth hostels in various places throughout eastern Canada gave me the opportunity to see the big cities of Ontario and Quebec, as well as the opportunity to see the countryside of Canada’s two most populous provinces. So, I do agree with you 100% on the advantages as well as the disadvantages of youth hostels. I wouldn’t have been able to afford to visit Canada, if I hadn’t been able to stay in youth hostels and travel by bus in Canada, coming from the USA.
