While Thanksgiving travel will cost an arm and a turkey leg if you book at this point, an alternative trip to Europe suddenly just got more attainable -- and while that bed at grandma's house might be free, well, it's only really a slight step above sleeping in a hostel. Why not just stay in an actual hostel -- especially if it only costs $1? All the European adventure, and none of the Matlock reruns.
Hostel booking site Hostel World is running a limited-time promotion that's giving away beds in hostels all over the world for the crazy low price of €1, or just $1.07, based on the current exchange rate. The promotion runs from November 9, 2015 - December 7, 2015, and hostels must be booked within these dates. There's a catch, too: to take advantage of the deal you have to play a guessing game. But hey, it's $1. You can hardly buy a pack of gum for this price.
