Paris and London are pretty magical this time of year: psychedelic Christmas lights, the best NYE parties and mulled wine at lunchtime. As if you needed another excuse to book your trip to two of Europe’s coolest capitals, we’ve teamed up with Generator to give away a free drink* with every single booking to their Paris and London hostels 🍷🍺🍹
Simply book a stay arriving anytime from 7th December until 31st January, and you’ll get a voucher for a free beer, wine or soft drink when you check in. It doesn’t get more sociable than a hostel bar, so along with the free drink you’re likely to pick up some new travel buddies too. Find out more about the hostels and book your stay below 👇👇👇
