Europe is home to so much history and culture that it’s no wonder year after year the tourism population starts to soar! But what you need to remember when picking a country to visit is where you’re going to be resting your head at night.

Midgard Hvolsvollur

The perfect place to rest during your Iceland adventure is the Midgard Hvolsvollur Base Camp. With a bar, blackout blinds and incredibly cozy beds, you can’t go wrong with this hostel as your home away from home. Not only that, the hot tub is located on the roof so you can kick back, grab a drink and enjoy the Northern Lights.

Plus Berlin

If you’re looking for the contemporary cool hostel vibe that Berlin is known for, then look no further! Take time to relax after a busy day sightseeing in the sauna or indoor pool then cap it off with a drink at the bar or restaurant. If you’re up for a bit of competition, see if one of the other travelers are up for a game of table tennis. 

Generator Madrid

The Spanish are known for their flair for style and elegant designs, the Generator Madrid embodies all of that. This hostel is located in one of the cultural hubs of Madrid which means the restaurants and activities will be endless. Not only that, if you’re looking to chill after a day of touring around, the rooftop terrace cocktail bar is the ultimate spot to unwind.

Jo&Joe Paris

Picture this, you’ve been walking around all day and have seen the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Notre Dame. When you get back to your hostel, wouldn’t it be great to grab a beer and just relax? Well at Jo&Joe Paris, you can pour your own beer from their beer wall or grab a drink from the full bar. Not only that, you can relax on the incredible lawns and enjoy the perfect Parisian night.

Selina Porto

Porto is one of Europe’s most charming cities and Selina Porto is one of the most charming hostels! At Selina Porto, you’ll be able to focus on your wellness, which we sometimes neglect on vacation, on their yoga deck or relax and watch a film in their movie room. At this hostel, you’ll be in the heart of the action as it’s located beside many historic sites and gardens. 

Noah Surf House Santa Cruz

Located on Portugal’s golden west coast, this hostel is a great place to be one with the sea. This hostel provides close proximity to the beach so you can grab your towel to suntan or see if you can hang ten on some great waves. You’ll be able to get your self centred at one of the yoga classes before continuing your travels through Europe.
