We’re all about great Airbnbs and boutique hotels, but sometimes the bill can get a bit steep. The hostel is a great option if you’re looking to save some coin and make friends on the way. Award-winning journalist Kash Bhattacharya—aka BudgetTraveller—is a huge fan of hostels, which is why he just put the new book The Grand Hostels: Luxury Hostels of the World by BudgetTraveller. The Grand Hostels is an over 300-page collection of the new wave of design-focused, luxury sleeping spaces, along with secret tips that Bhattacharya has compiled in his years of travel. Unlike the hostels you’re probably thinking about right now, we’re talking spaces with added amenities like outdoor swimming pools, rooftop dining, co-working areas, cooking lessons and even private rooms. In other words, they’re all basically outfitted with those boutique hotel niceties while remaining friendly to your budget.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
