Jetpak Alternative

Berlin, Germany

Fantastic area (Kreuzberg) in the greatest city in Europe. Walking distance to incredible bars, clubs, & restaurants; 5 minutes away from the nearest U-bahn. Cool common area to hang out & meet people, great atmosphere, incredibly big rooms with really comfortable beds, super clean, & such a nice staff (shout out to Julian!). Non-24-hour reception is no problem at all since it's easy & safe to get into the rooms at all hours (& you will be coming back at 5-7 am everyday in Berlin). A must stay!

Blue Skies Hostel

London, England

The hostel is not really set up for tourists due to the distance from center city London but that is really the only thing not ideal. Easy to catch buses at all hours to and from the hostel, about a 30 minute ride from Victoria station. The bar below is amazing especially if the weather is nice & the outdoor area is open. Rooms were very small but had lockers, stayed clean, & is a great value for the money. In March it was mostly locals looking for apartments so a little difficult to meet others


Stayed here over St. Patrick's weekend. Rooms were more expensive than normal but it is a high demand time, so that's fine. Very clean facilities with private bathrooms for each 4 bed room. Kind of hard to review on the atmosphere because the city was great but a lot of groups for the holiday weekend so it was a little more difficult to meet tons of different people. About a 10-15 minute walk to Temple Bar area, but the area itself has great cafes and food (I recommend Green Nineteen) nearby.

Casa d'Alagoa

Faro, Portugal

What a highlight of my trip through Europe. This hostel makes you feel like family right away which makes sense since Faro is a very small city. A very cool converted house with tons of character; this hostel is a must for solo travelers. 5 euro meals every night cooked by the incredible Scottish chef Allan are served family style at a big round table so you will be friends with everyone in the hostel. We all went out to bars at night and even had a Sangria challenge one night (on a Wednesday!).

Living Lounge Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

Wow, this place is as nice as a hotel but with a traveler's atmosphere & easy to meet people. A dollar goes a long way in Portugal & this hostel shows why. Right in the heart of downtown, you can walk to anywhere easily. 10 euro meals at night are a must; fantastic food, unlimited wine, & a really great way to meet people especially since Lisbon Lounge guests can come over for food as well. The 8 bed dorm had so much space & the beds were absurdly comfortable. Great bar/pub crawls Thurs-Sunday

Sant Jordi Sagrada Familia

Barcelona, Spain

Great party hosteI even in off-season March. The hostel is a 5 minute walk from two underground stations and only a 10 minute walk to Sagrada Familia church, 15 minute walk to La Rambla. They will take you out every night of the week to a bar for drinks, then club (free entry with the group!) and we met up with the other Sant Jordi guests. Facilities were very nice & clean; 8 room dorm had big enough lockers for my stuff. Electronic keycards for room & lockers, awesome skateboard theme. Love it.
