The Ginger Monkey Hostel in the Slovakian Tatras

Looking for a budget getaway in the Slovakian Tatra Mountains?  Like to get off the beaten track?  Then the Ginger Monkey hostel in Zdiar, Slovakia, is a great choice.  

Ginger Monkey Hostel, Zdiar, Slovakia
It's a small hostel, but social.  When I was there, it felt like visiting old friends.  We all ate dinner together, went out for drinks together, watched a movie together.  One of the staff was a real comedian, and had us in fits of laughter several times.  I learned Texas Hold 'Em and lost a dollar in a tournament—but wrapped myself in comfy blankets and drank hot chocolate while I watched the finalists duke it out.  I found a girl to go hiking with, and two patient guys to act as ski instructors.  I didn't want to leave.
