As we are trying to collaborate with Gomio.com and promote its hostel booking engine, we added a banner on top of our affiliate homepage with this hostel-related fact: “Bunks in dorms are like crazy relatives at Christmas; the more the merrier!”

We’d like to translate this into several languages to accommodate our international crowd, but we’re pretty sure that Bing or Google Translate are  completely effing it up.

Actually, we tried it. Here are the results.

PLEASE correct them in the comment section. We want to make sure our fun fact doesn’t end up saying something like “Married related hookers bunking Easter rabbits.”

The Hostel Worker

I once asked a fellow hostel worker if he was still sane after working in hostels for so many years. His response: "Well, sane is another word for boring." Here's to many more hostel years!
