Five Incredible Hostels in Europe

Accommodation is a major consideration when planning your most memorable European backpacking adventure. It is a blessing that the variety of Europe is evident in the variety of accommodation options. Hostels are most likely to be the most affordable choice for travellers, but not all are identical.

A few terrible hostels across Europe have thin walls, insufficient security, and uncleanliness. It’s essential to research accommodations before booking a room and, to help our guests, we’ve put together the top best hostels in Europe. You’ll find a place to get inspired regardless of whether you’re a flash packer or a backpacker!

The 5 best Hostels for Backpackers in Europe

  1. The Flying Pig Downtown Hostel

If you’re looking to celebrate, The Flying Pig is the perfect place to be. The location in downtown is where the fun begins. The Uptown place (overlooking the Vondelpark and close to Amsterdam’s top museum) is more laid-back.

Many guests are drawn to the hostel due to the location, bar on site, breakfast buffet, free access to the kitchen, and book exchange. They offer DJs, themed parties, and easy access to famous locations such as Dam Square and the Red Light District.

  1. City Backpackers

City Backpackers is situated in Norrmalm, an upscale neighbourhood close to a number of Stockholm’s most popular tourist attractions. The hostel offers so many facilities that you won’t ever want to leave, such as super comfy beds in rooms and beds, as well as a relaxing café and outdoor lounge area that serves free coffee and tea throughout the day as well as access to a huge communal room, kitchen, and even sauna! The staff can also provide an array of events that are low-cost or free events which makes the hostel an ideal place to connect with new acquaintances, and an ideal location for various travellers throughout Europe.

  1. Kabul

If you’re looking for fun, Afghanistan is the place to be. There are large common areas that cover an entire floor. When you think of the top nightclubs in Europe usually, Afghanistan tops the list. If you really like parties, this place is only recommended as it can get quite noisy. It’s a hotel exclusively for adults. According to their website, not much sleep is awaited at the hostel. It’s located at Ciutat Vella in Barcelona, making it an ideal option for those looking to dance all night long and then enjoy (free) breakfast in the morning.


  1. Archi Rossi

It is a must to experience Brunch in Archi Rossi to be convinced. A typical Tuscan-style house that serves a delicious meal to order, guests can take a quick trip from breakfast to the free hot tub and sauna for a relaxing time. Other wellness amenities, like massages or spa services, are offered for those who want to indulge in a luxurious experience.

The majority of the city’s major sights are easily accessible by foot. There is an open common area where people can get together with one another and an impressive outdoor patio and garden in which guests can enjoy an ice-cold glass of Tuscan wine.

  1. Ostello Bello

Although the term “waterfront Lake Como” doesn’t necessarily evoke images of cheap accommodation, let us show you a hidden gem in the form of the Ostello Bello hotel which has various amenities and services for guests and is a short walk away from the lake.

There’s a grilling space and a bar that hosts live entertainment, happy hour, and stand-up comedy among other things along with the use of a bathroom in each room. This is an excellent option especially for families in case you’re looking for an inexpensive way to experience the beautiful Lake Como.
