LONDON, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Some things can only happen in a hostel, and Hostelworld have set out to prove it by inviting hotel guests to a skinny dip - will they be up for it?
To celebrate the return of Hostelworld's previously banned 'Skinny Dip' advert, which sees a group of travellers who have just met in a hostel take part in a spontaneous skinny dip in a Mexican sink hole, the world's leading hostel accommodation platform has infiltrated a hotel to encourage guests to ditch their clothes, as well as their inhibitions, and emulate the adventure… it's safe to say this level of spontaneity would never happen in a hotel environment.
The one man mission to bring the skinny dip to fruition in a hotel sees guests being approached in the hotel lobby, in the bar and even in the lift. Our hero even leads by example and starts to strip!
Despite being confronted with confused, slightly concerned faces and a torrent of 'nos', he remains undeterred.
So watch the action unfold and have that age-old question answered… would you like to skinny dip with me later? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZtUALOehdw
Otto Rosenberger, Hostelworld CMO, said: "Hostels are amazingly social places, there are things that happen in hostels that just couldn't happen anywhere else. When you check in at a hostel you never quite know who you might meet and what travel adventures you will embark on together. This is what makes the hostel travel experience so unique and memorable."
Hostelworld Group is the leading global hostel-booking platform with Hostelworld, Hostelbookers and Hostels.com in its portfolio operating in 19 different languages. Connecting young travellers with hostels around the world, Hostelworld has over 8 million reviews across 33,000 properties in more than 170 countries.
Hostelworld's customers aren't your average tourists; they crave experiences not souvenirs and want to be in the heart of the action. They want to Meet The World, and it's the social nature of hostels that facilitates their travel adventures.
