HostelBookers offer affordable chic options for travellers with high style at low cost


Holidays don’t have to be expensive, but they should always be relaxing. If you want to save money, meet cool people and unwind during your time away you should book into one of HostelBookers’ top luxury hostels .

There’s a hostel out there to suit everyone, guaranteed. Whether you’re a solo traveller, traveller with children, travelling in a couple or you’re going on a big holiday with a group of friends, hostels are so versatile you’ll find a room set up to suit.

If you’re looking for hostels in Chicago, the Chicago Getaway Hostel is one of our most luxurious. You can enjoy style and comfort from just €23.47pppn and you’ll be in a top location too. That’s another great thing about staying in hostels – they crop up in every big city centre location in the world. If you want to save a few euros you can book into a hostel on the outskirts and make use of the public transport. Or, if you’ve only got a few days to make the most of and you want to be right in the centre of the action there are plenty to choose from too.  

Style and design

Our luxury hostels could be described as boutique hotels. The attention to design and quality makes them stand out. The ONE80 Hostel – Alexanderplatz is a stylish and funky boutique alternative in an excellent location. The luxury hostel has been designed to a high standard with the environment in mind. They’ve got a bar, restaurant and club on site, Wi-Fi comes as standard, as does a comfortable armchair and even a photo booth so you can upload your pictures.

Feeling flush? Opt for a private room with en-suite. If the recession has struck you down then there are plenty of dorm options to choose from too. As a basic rule, the more people you share with the cheaper it gets. The ability to search by price from low to high makes it very easy to find the perfect one for you.

Meeting fellow travellers

Stay in one of our luxury hostels and you’ll enjoy a tranquil experience on a budget. Both partygoers and party poopers alike will love our selection. Just make sure you read the profile descriptions thoroughly and look out for those key word indicators like ‘party hostel’, ‘karaoke nights’ and ‘bar crawls’ for the former, and ‘quiet gardens’, ‘peaceful’ and ‘serene’ for the latter.

Hostels are social places – if you want them to be. There’s always some sort of communal area to relax in. Most hostels have lounges, computer rooms, kitchens or pool areas where you can meet other travellers and enjoy just chilling out away from the pressure of constant sightseeing. Some hostels, like Sydney Harbour YHA, even have roof gardens. As the name suggests it’s located on the city’s harbour. You’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House too. In fact you can enjoy the views from the hostel’s roof terrace. The Susannah Place Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art are nearby too.

If you’re anxious about booking into a hostel for the first time feel safe in the knowledge that our luxury hostels are the best of the bunch. And check out the rating too. Our reviewing customers will let us know how they got on at a property and we combine all this information to give them an overall satisfaction score to let you know how good they are.

Our luxury hostels are comfortable, cool, sociable and great value – what’s not to love?
