top hostels

in Europe

Dubrovnik, Croatia



In the past 3 years, I've stayed at over 100 hostels, and I want to share my absolute favourite ones here in Europe! Here are my top picks, and a short description! 


Kex 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!

Sushi in Vancouver


Flying Pig Downtown

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! 

Colosseum Rome



The MadHouse Prague

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!


The Yellow Hostel

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

Sushi in Vancouver


Kabul Party Hostel

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


St.Christopher's Berlin

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

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!


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?!

Oki Doki Hostel

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

Cesky Krumlov


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

Retox Party Hostel

Not the cleanest or best maintained hostel, but the atmosphere 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! 


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!

Wombats City Hostel -The Naschmarkt

Big chain hostel located near my favourite market in the world, the Naschmarkt. Great atmosphere in the bar, and the perfect base for exploring Vienna's bustling food scene
