209/2 Sridom, ซอย ร่วมชัย อำเภอ แม่แตง เชียงใหม่ 50100, Thailand
Learn about the history of elephants in Thailand, feed the elephants by hand, learn commands for controlling an elephant, ride bareback through the countryside, and finally spend some time in a small pond bathing your elephant. Baan Chang Elephant...
Hluhluwe, 3960, South Africa
“Don’t move!” I was told. Perhaps that’s an odd highlight for a trip, the moments when you must remain stock still against the strong intuition to belago, run like hell. Yet these were the most exhilarating for me as a volunteer taking census data...
4004 E 800 N, Battle Ground, IN 47920, USA
There are not many places where one can be a few feet away from a pack of hungry wolves and not feel like 'dinner', but Wolf Park, in Battleground, IN happens to be one of them. The center is home to research on wolf behavior -- its employees and...

Rosenthaler Str. 1, 10119 Berlin, Germany
The more upscale sister establishment to the renowned Circus Hostel across the street, the Circus Hotel combines this bustling location with a style and service that gently impress rather than being in-your-face. The 60 colorful rooms—the...

Derb El Hammam, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
If ever you wanted to plan an exotic "Sex and the City" inspired vacation at a fraction of the price, the Equity Point Marrakesh Hostel would be the place to stay. This hostel is hidden within the labyrinth of streets that make up Marrakesh's...
2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33140, USA
When Freehand launched in Miami at the end of 2012, it became a welcome alternative to the city’s glitzy hotel scene. The retro-inspired, summer-camp-style hotel is housed in a 1930s building outfitted with vintage furnishings and wood...
Alte Schönhauser Str. 2, 10119 Berlin, Germany
Don't let the fact that this is a hostel discourage you from staying here. The Wombat hostel was in a great location and a good 3 mile walking distance from the Berlin Wall with several happy hour stops on the way. The hostel is geared towards a...
40 College Cres, London NW3 5LB, UK
Hostels overtake areas like Piccadilly Circus and King’s Cross, but Palmer’s Lodge Swiss Cottage is located in an area of London that the “real” people live in. A short ride from central London and an even shorter walk to Hampstead Heath, the city...
Mühlwiese 12, 6166 Fulpmes, Austria
Doug’s isn’t your typical hostel, as there are only 8 or so beds in the entire place, but it’s the best place to experience the Austrian Alps. Located a 30 minute tram ride away from Innsbruck in Fulpmes, this is as Alpine as it gets. Picture the...
Warschauer Pl. 6, 10245 Berlin, Germany
As someone who appreciates "champagne taste on a beer budget," PLUS Hostel Berlin was right up my alley. The hostel boasts amenities like an indoor pool, sauna, laundry room, courtyard, art gallery, full bar and restaurant and location next to...
Adelgade 5-7, 1304 København, Denmark
What’s not to like? Modern buildings, central locations, variety of rooms, great nightlife and cheap dining options. Honestly, it doesn’t get better than that. The hostel is handily located between two of the city’s busiest...
1 Nelly Bay Road, Magnetic Island QLD 4819, Australia
The sound of the ocean's waves lapping the shore greets you when you wake up at Base Backpackers Magnetic Island. As if that's not enough, this Australian hostel is located on Magnetic Island National Park, just a short ferry ride from Townsville,...

We have 6 girls stay in a room for 2 nights. The room is spacious and clean, beds are comfortable. Receptionists are nice and helpful, you can ask anything about Prague, where to go, what to eat,etc... And he breakfast is fantastic! You even can...
Via G. Marconi, 358, 84017 Positano SA, Italy
Positano's unreal scenery and excellent limoncello reduce everywhere else to a distant, less attractive memory. Arguably one of the best views in town can be found at Hostel Brikette, Positano's only youth hostel, but book a private room if you're...
China, Beijing Shi, Dongcheng Qu, 南锣古巷85号 邮政编码: 100007
On my first trip to China, while in Beijing I stayed in a hostel nestled in a traditional hutong. It was a highlight even then. I loved stepping out the door and heading off into the maze of narrow alleys and unique architecture. There are so many...
22 Avenue Gravier, 06100 Nice, France
If you're used to non-luxurious hostels, Villa Saint Exupery's rooms at the Garden Hostel (there's also a Beach) don't need to be described. Both their dorms and their private rooms are like a standard setup from uni or college (depending on your...
20 SW 2nd Ave, Florida City, FL 33034, USA
Florida City is the gateway to the Florida Everglades, where many people fuel up and get their gear together before wandering into the forest. The Everglades International Hostel is one such place to recharge before days of activity. Tucked into a...
Calle 10 y Avenida A, Calle 10a Oeste 8 - 13, Panamá, Panama
Had a great stay at the PanAmerican Hostel in Panama! It is clean and safe. Located in Caso Viejo, it is close to many tourist sites. It is not in the safest area, but is closely patrolled with police and is locked up safely with 24/hour front...
1245 Rue Saint-André, Montréal, QC H2L 3T1, Canada
Located off Rue Catherine in Montreal's Gay Village, M Montreal has been completely remodeled into the city's most luxurious hostel. It's surrounded by bars and restaurants on the pedestrian-only street, making it a fantastic neighborhood to stay...
Weinbergsweg 1A, 10119 Berlin, Germany
I was immediately drawn to the modern decor and “home away from home” feel. Checking in was pretty painless and my single room had everything I needed: a bed and a desk. It also had a connecting bathroom, fresh towels and a lovely view...
55, ถ.อุตรกิจ, ตำบลปากนํ้า อำเภอเมืองกระบี่ จังหวัดกระบี่, 81000 Tambon Pak Nam, Amphoe Mueang Krabi, Chang Wat Krabi 81000, Thailand
This humble hostel is a therapeutic oasis for sun burnt travelers who find themselves all beached out. The town of Krabi is situated slightly inland, and consequently does not attract the hoards of tourists wrestling to stay beachfront. The city...
Fondamenta Zitelle, 86, 30133 Venezia VE, Italy
It seems like a miracle that anything in Venice could be affordable. But now that the 36-room Generator Hostel opened on Venice's Guidecca Island, the budget-minded can breathe more easily when dropping anchor in Venice. Better yet,...
Oranienburger Str. 65, 10117 Berlin, Germany
This particular hostel has a great location as it is close to main attractions such as Dom, AlexanderPlatz and Friedrichstraße. The area is filled with local bars and restaurants. Prices are fair, rooms clean and modern, and people are friendly....
Wriezener Karree 5, 10243 Berlin, Germany
remember that 2006 film Das Leben der Anderen? or The Lives of Others as it was called in English. Much like that famous film, this modest hostel gives you a feel for what Berlin looked and felt like pre-1989.
1658 Front St, San Diego, CA 92101, USA
The Travelers Adventure Hostel is very unique in that they really want to encourage you to experience San Diego. When you stay here, just let them know the types of activities you enjoy and they will create a customized itinerary for you to make...
