Traveling can get expensive quickly. But one way to lessen the financial load is to opt for hostels over hotels; these budget-oriented spots have an undeserved bad rap. Sure, they’re usually bare bones when it comes to accommodations, but they often offer a fun, vibrant scene that can really add to a guest’s overall traveling experience.
Primarily geared toward young, party-oriented travelers who don’t mind sharing rooms with strangers, hostels can be a great option for a cheap place to crash — that also has a fun atmosphere. We’ve found nine hostels around the world that fit the bill. Expect hopping bars with alcohol flowing, lounges with pool and foosball tables, and guests from all over with whom you can dance and take a shot of Jägermeister.
