EL PASO, Texas - In Downtown El Paso, soon, there will be a new option for tourists to choose to get their rest and relaxation. Boxstel - Modern Stay is a hostel-type hotel opening in late July on San Fransisco Avenue, tucked behind Southwest University Park.
Boxstel - Modern Stay is taking the traditional hostel to a new level. Thirty beds will be available, in eight uniquely designed bedrooms, with a bathroom in each room. Free WiFi and complimentary breakfast are other amenities that will be available for travelers who are looking to save some money on accommodations.
Hostels are known for their budget-friendly costs for travelers. An average price per night for a hostel runs between $20-$40, according to MyFunkyTravel, compared to hotels which often run more than $100 per night. ABC-7 has reached out to the El Paso Hotel and Lodging Association for more insight on the current status of the hospitality industry here in the Borderland. Tune in tonight at 5 and 6 PM for more information.
