Backpacker Video of the Week

by Dave on September 21, 2007 · 4 comments

This week’s backpacker video is Hostel, an amateur backpacking show. I came across an episode on YouTube, and thought it was well done. It wasn’t glossy and overproduced. It felt real. It was shot in Montreal, and it seems like the creators are trying to market it out on YouTube.

About This Video


Youth travel backpacker show . Follow Phife and Kevin as they travel the world and explore the subculture of youth backpacking and hosteling equipped with only $50 a day and a desire to party!

I couldn’t help but pick up on the girl that comments around 2:55 about how she’s on month 10 of a trip around the world. It’s less what she said, than her tone. It sounded as though she was tired of saying it. I can sort of relate. I’m getting a bit tired of the term “around the world” and I haven’t even left yet!

What do you think – do Phife and Kevin have a potential hit on their hands?
