Hostels around the world rely on good reviews and social media influencers to use their name in a positive way. They offer famous travel bloggers free stays and in return get reviews. Hostels often sponsor entire trips too, which includes other activities of the trip. Since review hits are dependent on their search engine ranking, it is important to keep the page position up.
Travel bloggers help in maintaining the ranking and write attention worthy articles. Bloggers can write in detail about the tradition of a hostel; whether it is a party hostel or one that caters to more serious and aged customers who like a serene and peaceful environment.
They can explain the lounge and social culture in detail. Whether a party hostel offers happy hours several time in a day or just once.
The bloggers can also explain in detail about their food experience at the hostel; whether they enjoyed the recipes and serving style; if they were allowed to interact with the kitchen staff as an activity. This somehow endorses that the hostel administration welcomes sudden visits to the kitchen and other service areas and lets the customers witness the quality of work there.
The blogger can also include any important facts of history about the hostel. They can add personal experience by writing about who else was staying at the hostel when the blog was written.
So if you are a good blogger and love traveling, you may find a hostel in Thailand willing to host your trip and you can help them out too.
