5. Apple Hostel – Philadelphia, USA.
This is the only hostel from the USA to make it into my top 5! Its a lovely little hostel in the centre of Philadelphia and within walking distance of everything you could want to see. The hostel has great little free socials every night such as wine and cheese night or movie night which gets everyone together before hitting the many bars that are literally around the corner as the hostel is just off the main strip.
4. Mojzo Inn – Nha Trang, Vietnam.
Nha Trang wasn’t my favourite place in Vietnam but damn this hostel was near the top of my list. The staff, which includes two twin sisters, are amazing! They go above and beyond and remember everyone’s names and will always use it when talking to you. The hostel itself is quirky as it is really thin but tall and has a lovely little cafe’ on the top!
3. Vietnam Backpacker Hostels, Downtown – Hanoi, Vietnam.
If you go to this hostel I give you two pieces of advice to take with you. 1, prepare to get absolutely no sleep, and 2, take some paracetamol. This hostel knows how to party and is the king of great nights. Be sure to book on the castaway tour to Ha Long bay that the hostel organizes, two nights you will never forget; one a boat and one on a private island.
2. Mui Ne Backpacker Villlage – Mui Ne, Vietnam.
Mui Ne is a town that’s gaining popularity in the Vietnam traveler scene. It’s endless beaches and nearby sand dunes make it a good place to stay for a couple of nights. However, if you stay at the Mui Ne Backpacker village you will never want to leave. The rooms are basic but pretty cheap and the staff are very helpful. The main thing however that you will love is the pool! It’s the centre of the hostel and is where you will find everyone. You can spend all day there soaking up the rays, chatting and playing games. Nirvana.
1. Greg & Tom Beer House Hostel – Krakow, Poland. (Cover Picture)
This is simply the best hostel I’ve stayed in so far. From the moment you enter the place you know the hostel staff (who are hot hot hot!) want you to have the best time possible. The decor of the place is so lush, and the rooms are spacious and comfy. Value for money is excellent; the rooms are cheap, you get a free dinner every night which you would expect to find in a decent restaurant and you get free drinks before the hostel goes on a wild night out in Krakow. Cant speak highly enough of the place. Deffo going back.
