First things first, if you aren’t familiar with hostling here is what a hostle is all about from Wikipedia…
Hostels provide budget oriented, sociable accommodation where guests can rent a bed, sometimes a bunk bed, in a dormitory and share a bathroom, lounge and sometimes a kitchen. Rooms can be mixed or single-sex, although private rooms may also be available. Hostels are generally cheaper for both the operator and the occupants; many hostels have long-term residents whom they employ as desk clerks or housekeeping staff in exchange for free accommodation
Pittsburgh used to have a hostel located in the Allentown neighborhood but it closed a few years ago. Earlier this year a group of Pittsburghers got together to work on planning a new hostel for Pittsburgh. Check out PittsburghHostel.org for more info.
