Originating back in the early 1900s, International Women’s Day is a major day of global celebration of everything female. To mark the occasion we’ve put together a list of hostels which are particularly suitable for women only…
St Christopher's Paris, France
Part of the famous St Christopher's hostel-chain, their Paris hostel has something special for the ladies known as 'The Oasis' - a female-only floor with a few creature-comforts that ensure its female guests can hit the Parisian streets feeling beautiful. If you want to beautify yourself without having to go anywhere, it will come as welcome news that the hostel also has its own bar and nightclub.
