Things to look for & things to avoid
Hostels are the backbone of modern day backpacking, and they’re not necessarily what you think. They may have been dingy, run-down housing back in the day, but these days, they’re completely designed to attract people like you. They’re where you’ll spend most of your time, and they’re where you’ll make friends with other travelers. It’s important to do a bit of research and listen to fellow travelers when picking hostels to stay at, because they can make or break your experience in a city.
My Hostel Recommendations
These are my top hostel picks from the ones I've stayed at so far. Some are party hostels, some are eco-hostels, and some are boutique hostels, but each one of them had a huge impact on my experience in its own city (mostly good!).
Check them out. I think you’ll like them!
