#1 London Hostels: Clink78
Close your eyes and imagine the hostel of your dreams: cheap, central, convenient, and clean. Add a touch of design, a good dose of professionality and completely refurbished interiors... and welcome to Clink78!
Clink78 is without a doubt one of the cheapest London hostels and one of the most iconic in the city. The proof? The building used to be the city court (as the majestic entrance testifies), that witness the famous trial of the mythical Clash!
Why is Clink78 your hostel in London?
It has a 24h reception, super central position near King's Cross (a must for any Harry Potter fan) and really cool clean dorms at just 25 euro a night (average price).
2# Venice Hostel: The Generator Hostels are still a hit!
There is no doubt: Generator Hostels are a safe stylistic choice. The most famous design hostel chain boasts at least one property in every major European city... and in front of the perfection of the Generator Hostel Venice, we have to admit that we have been conquered. Every detail has been chosen specifically to make sure you enjoy yourself to the max. From the furniture and pool table to the rooms, you get the feeling your in a luxury hotel, the Generator will leave you opened mouthed.... and in your photos too!
Why they Generator is the king of Venice hostels:
The breathtaking view from the island of Giudecca towards Lido in incredible: make the most of the sunset (or dawn, for the early birds/party animals) onto the grand canal, St.Marks square, and Lido.
#3 Berlin Hostel: The Grand Hostel Berlin Classic for the most intellectual souls
In the centre of Berlin, a hostel has been designed for the most literary spirits among us. Indeed, in the heart of the property is the amazing 'Library Bar', a true paradise of literature. Comfy armchairs, leather sofas, tasty cocktails on hand and a whole wall covered in bound volumes, all decked out in a 20s style. The most sophisticated are invited to the daily Tea House Party, tea at 18.00 open to all backpackers who want to socialise.
And it has more compared to other Berlin hostels...
Free German lessons (because the art of conversation is essential between intellectuals), guided tours of the city and bike rental (because you can't just read!!! Or maybe you can...)
#4 Turin Hostel: The Bamboo Eco Hostel is about love for nature.
A fully organic breakfast in this central Turin hostel, that knows how to make the most of the new fully-green fashion that is conquering (and the earth is thanking us for this) every international market, from that of food to that of tourism. Love and respect for the environment are reflected in the chromatic choice of the furnishings: greys, blues, browns and a thousand shades of green that will give you the feeling of sleeping immersed in nature...
Forget about other Turin Hostels: The bamboo hostel is a treasure hunt of unique works of art chosen by the staff from the various flea markets in the city, to decorate the hostel with imagination and originality in every room!
#5 Barcelona Hostel: More than a chic hostel.. the Pars Tailor’s Hostel is a paradise for the fashion-addicted!
When even the tables are shaped like ironing boards and the walls are covered in multicoloured fabrics, sketches and buttons, you know that this hostel is serious about design! If you also share a passion for fashion as the owner of this hostel does, don't hesitate, even for a moment: you want to spend your evenings in Barcelona here. The Paris Tailor's hostel is 100% inspired by traditional 30s sewing shops, with many sewing machines and period clothes... making it completely original!
If you book other Barcelona hostels you are loosing out: Free city tours, on foot and by bike, and a large terrace for a flawless summer tan.
“Stay different. Stay local. Stay You”: a slogan that is really a lifestyle. It is in this spirit that the two twin hostels in the heart of the city have decided to welcome their guests, respecting the spirit of sharing, socialising, and unstoppable creativity that here reign free. From the tent in the garden that transforms into a B&W film watching location and the staircase made of recycled books, to the vinyl collection and the 'hostel dinner' twice a week.... if you love something different, this is the place for you.
Why these amongst all the Amsterdam Hostels? Simple: because they are unique and inimitable! Here it's the experience that counts.
#7 Madrid Hostels: Cat lovers of the world unite...at Cats Party Hostel!
I can't make a list of the best hostels in Europe without thinking about you, the instal cat lovers! The Cats Party Hostel is in a unique antique XVII hostel: a small architectural gem. Inside is a large internal courtyard, complete with a central fountain in a Moorish style. Dedicated some time to relax with your animals but keep some energy for the long Madrid nights!
The musts of this Madrid Hostel: Obligatory participation in the Paella Party... every Saturday there is a free dinner with the most famous Spanish dish in the world!

If you are desperately searching for an unusual background for a memorable photo (even if you have to love pink) this hostel in the heart of the Italian capital city will help you out. Don't worry: the rooms have much plainer colours!

#9 Vienna hostels: Wombat’s City Hostel - The lounge: where tradition is trendy!
The second combat style hostel, situated in the longest shopping street in the world, this hostel allows you to experience the charm of Vienna with a touch of innovation. Behind the antique facade from the 1880s hides a completely young and refurbished interior. Password to get in? Socialise!
The strong point of the Vienna Hostel: The bar and lounge area are underground, so they are completely soundproof and feel magical with thousands of lights that hang from the ceiling.
