Hostels with private bathroom: 13 examples against hostel stereotype


Let's get this straight: to stay in a hostel does not necessarily mean shared bathroom!

We have heard many stories about hostels - that they are unsafe places, they don't offer private rooms, and that they are dirty and provide no services. One of the most recurring worries is having to share the bathroom facilities with other travellers. Frightened by this possibility, many travellers do not opt for hostels and reject the idea of considering hostels as a valid accommodation option.

Going against hostel stereotypes, Hostelsclub has been promoting the #Lovehostels campaign. Today we want to debunk yet another myth: when staying in hostels, ensuite rooms are available! The majority of hostels, in fact, provide both shared bathrooms and ensuite accommodation. The latter can obviously be a bit more expensive however, but for those who consider it not a luxury but a necessity, it won't be a problem to add some extra euro.

You can go for ensuite dormitories (the bathroom is only shared with your room-mates: so unless you have booked a 20-bed dorm you won't have to queue for the toilet or to brush your teeth), to ensuite private rooms (which is very similar to what you would get from a hotel room, but with all the positive aspects of staying in a hostel waiting for you once you close your room door behind you... such as sharing, fun, and international atmosphere...)

We thought we would compile a list of 13 hostels with ensuite rooms, from Italy to Brazil, and here they are.
