My goal in writing this review of the Traveller's Planet Hostel is to - Keep my word. Act honestly, with integrity. - Write something which I believe could help the owner. - Get the owner more interested in my writing, work, ideas. - Increase the positive feelings that the owner has for me. Create feelings of appreciation, interest. - Practice writing a review. Practice writing in DC/SPH way. Incorporate some of the DC ideas. I originally planned to say two nights How satisfied were you from 0-10? How likely are you to recommend - Use his website - Create a travels page
