NSFW: Insane Hostel Pools That’ll Make you Quit your Job to Travel

Let’s be honest, nothing seals the deal more than an amazing hostel and pool combo. Not a lame-ass paddling pool, a real, shimmering, crystal clear swimming pool. Hostelling á la piscine is the ultimate hostel luxury, especially if you are in warmer climes! Even celebrities love our hostel pools 😉 Our sources say they have been known to cure a hangover. From rooftops to palm-tree lined gardens, here are the hostel elite that boast the sexiest pools and beyond…

Selina Hostel Playa Venao – Playa Venao, Panama

Just look at this place! Selina Hostel’s pristine pool is lined with colourful tiki-bungalows so you can literally roly poly from your bed to the water (*do not try this at home*). The hostel also offers adventure tours, surf lessons and yoga classes. BRB – just booking a one way flight to Panama…

Freehand Miami – Miami, FL, USA

The party don’t stop in Miami and the badboi pool at Freehand makes sure of that! The hostel bar, The Broken Shaker, was named as one of the fifty best bars in the United States (2014/2015) and the place is decorated with original art installations by local artists. Free yoga classes on the beach are all part of the sweet Cali livin’ at Freehand Miami!

South Coast Backpackers – Diani, Kenya

South Coast Backpackers is a guaranteed oasis for all who have wanderlust pumping through their veins, and the luxurious pool is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s an outdoor bar, on-site chef, stiltz lounge, poker nights and wait….a retro slip ‘n slide?! SOLD.

 

The Dreamer – Palomino, Colombia

Who wouldn’t want to swim in a pool surrounded by a “huge variety of tropical plants,”?! The hostel is located right on the beach, and even has its own private terrace for you to recharge before another day of Colombian adventures. As well as the usual top notch dorms, the hostel offers a host of incredible private rooms that will make you feel like royalty, without the royal bill!

 

PLUS Berlin – Berlin, Germany

Berlin is one of the hippest cities in the world, and PLUS is a hostel to match. The newly-furbed building survived both world wars and Friedrichshain is now one of the city’s most up-and-coming neighbourhoods. Here you’re surrounded by street art, vintage shops, boisterous bars and a sandy city beach around the corner at the River Spree. The hostel itself even has a sauna to accompany its pool. Well done, PLUS Berlin. Well done. *Slow claps*

 

Equity Point – Marrakech, Morocco

Searching for some R&R on your travels? Two words: SPA HOSTEL! At Equity Point you can soothe your weary travelling soul by getting a massage, or taking a dip in the pool, which thanks to the beyond-glore Moroccan weather is open for a large part of the year. What can we say, it’s true love <B

 

Arenal Backpackers – La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Ever dreamed about waking up to the view of a volcano from your hostel bed? Well, you can do exactly that at Arenal Backpackers! The pool has an adjoining wet bar, and you can get some much needed TLC in their comfy garden hammocks that feel like you’re floating on a cloud. In the words of Gabrielle, “Dreams can come true.”

 

The Backpack – Cape Town, South Africa

Back to Africa for this one, and it’s a real beaut. One of the most popular sites in the country is Table Mountain, and The Backpack is only 10 minutes from the cable car tour! There’s free breakfast, rooms are certified F-R-E-S-H and the hostel even houses its own community craft shop – perfect for all you creative travellers!

 

La Casa Roja – Santiago, Chile

At La Casa Roja, they’re all about “Buena Onda” (good vibes), and have therefore turned an old colonial mansion into every social backpacker’s dream! The hostel organises wine tasting, ski trips, barbecues – you name it. Take a bow La Casa Roja. Take. A. Bow!

 

La Brisa Loca – Santa Marta, Colombia

Another grand colonial mansion, but this time with distinct Caribbean charm. They’re all about vibrant colours, Colombian architecture and cultural traditions at La Brisa Loca. The bar is stocked and the view from the roof terrace is to die for, making your pool party Insta game strong 😉

Bambuda Lodge – Bocas del Toro, Panama

Another day, another serene swim! Bambuda Lodge is perched perfectly on the water front surrounded by lush rainforest hikes that are begging to be explored, and right off the dock you can get your snorkelling fix at the coral reef. While the hostel’s connection with nature is unparalleled, it’s actually only 5 minutes from town, so you can still get stuck into the local nightlife like a champ!

Smugglers Cove – Nadi, Fiji

Who doesn’t love a little Fijian island life with fresh ocean air AND a pool?! At Smugglers Cove you can learn how to paddle board and there’s even an in-house travel centre that can arrange all your surf tours and pacific island hopping. The free breakfast buff and daily fresh fruit is a masterful touch to an already mind-blowing island experience!

Pink Manila – Manila, Philippines

Fancy penthouse? Check! On site gym? Yep! Panoramic terrace view of the city? You bet! You’ll never stay in a hostel quite like Pink Manila. There’s a legendary social vibe and the hostel has a pool that overlooks the skyline, and there are even hammocks on the rooftop! We repeat: ROOFTOP HAMMOCKS!

PLUS Florence – Florence, Italy

Where do we even begin?! There’s of course the luscious pool and the stellar location right slap bang in the city centre. Add in an awe-inspiring panoramic terrace bar with clubs nights with live DJs to the mix and you have the definition of E-p-i-c.
