Three guys. Two of us with a small idea— suffering acute nostalgia for the salad days of travel misery while still trying to pay for tuition — and a third with a technical gift bordering on supreme genius.
It started out with the hope of being a niche marketplace for college students seeking a little adventure within their crash-space. But the response to our existence was overwhelming, and much was heard from “you,” those wishing to be hovelers without having an edu. email address. And seeing that we are a community-based company, it didn’t seem right to exclude anyone from the experience hovelstay.com hopes to offer. Therefore, now everyone can sleep on a bale of hay inside a damp barn while backpacking, or just carrying basic luggage, through Germany on Summer, Spring, Winter, or Fall seasons – when you want it where you want it. And, we will continue to provide not just places to dwell, but we will continue to undersell – as a place to hovel, and now open for all.
To all of our traveling thrill-seekers, and those just plain brave, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of our experience and helping hovelstay.com become your first pick when looking for adventure in your travel accommodations.
