Bathroom Privileges 

Your Own Bathroom; Maybe...

How long you’ve been in the bathroom depends on which side of the door you’re on. If you are fortunate enough to have booked a little space with a private bathroom, cheer!  However, chances are—you’re stuck sharing a bathroom with a bunch of other people. So follow the golden rule – do unto other's toilets and sinks as you'd have them do unto yours...!


What's in Your Hovel?

Sell it!

Providing details on as many bells and whistles you offer helps push your hovel to the front of the line.   However, keep in mind that many a hoveler are just looking for a place to crash because you happen to be in the right neighborhood.  In such cases, if you have electricity and a toilet – that’s good enough.  But beefing up your amenities is always nice, and keeps your hovel rented!

hovelog: Your Story

Adventures Near & Far

We LOVE exotic hovel stories, whether your hovel is on a Caribbean Island or in a musty basement. We want to hear it!  Love stories and horror stories alike, what's the fun of travel if you can’t rip about the experience online? Submit your story!  Each month, a new one goes up – and it could be yours!! (And for the love of country, please keep profanity to a minimum)
