Hostel

Osaka, Japan

I've stayed in over 80 hostels over the last 3 years.  Every time I travel to a new city, I check out of my hostel and check into a new hostel every 1-2 days. This way, I meet the maximum amount of new people, and if the hostel I'm currently at doesn't have the greatest atmosphere, I can go back to previous hostels to hang out or meet up with people, since I know some guests, and usually the front desk agent. Here's my top hostels in Europe, in order from my favorite hostels (not cities).

Shanghai

Mountain Bund Hostel

Hipster hostel with amazing views of the mountains, lively bar, local artists, and a beer festival in February. This is one of the cleanest and nicest hostels I've stayed in!

Kyoto

K's House Osaka

Lively bar in Central Amsterdam, in the heart of the tourist district. There's an indoor smoking room with pillows. Stay in the 32 bed dorm for an adventure, but don't expect much sleep! 

Sushi in Vancouver

Tokyo

The Yellow Hostel

5 buildings all around the block are part of this hostel, with a lively bar packed with backpackers. A solo traveller's paradise!

Osaka

 

J Hoppers Osaka

Upon arriving here, you'll feel like you're invited to a close family! The staff goes above and beyond to organize day events, nightly outings, and there's always something going on in the common room!

Colloseum Rome
Sushi in Vancouver

Hong Kong

Check Inn HK

Superb hostel in a central location. Rooftop bar with cheap drinks, great atmosphere for solo backpackers

Hangzhou

St.Christopher's Berlin

Although this is a chain hostel, the atmosphere is amazing and the location is close to most major sights.

Sushi in Vancouver

Bangkok

Peace and Love Hostel

Not the cleanest or most glamorous hostel, but I met some amazing people here that made my trip. Hostel is over a bar with very basic facilities, but with the small nature of the hostel, you will make friends in no time!

Seoul

Greg and Tom Home Hostel

THE BEST VALUE hands down! This place has free breakfast, free quality dinner with pasta, pizza, cheeses, salads, and more! Oh and FREE DRINKS every night. How awesome is that?!

Chiang Mai

Oki Doki Hostel?

Clean and centrally located hostel, with an amazing dirt-cheap bar filled with backpackers, and nightly events. The bar get's loud, but the sleeping area does not. Win, win!

Hanoi

Superb hostel in a central location. Rooftop bar with cheap drinks, great atmosphere for solo backpackers

Ho Chi Minh City

Retox Party Hostel

Not the cleanest or best maintained hostel, but the atmoshpere and layout makes this one for the books! There's a beer garden in the middle, surrounded by balconies of hostel rooms. It's a party every night! 

Siem Reap

Patio Hostel

Nice  and clean hostel in a superb location with a lively atmosphere. If you make it to this little capital, check into this hostel!
