Istanbul Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey

Amazing location. 5 minute walk from Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque and a ten minute walk to the Grand Bazaar or the Spice Market. The place was not very clean. The bathroom was shared and only cleaned in the morning. Our sheets had stains and white stuff (ew) on them when we first got there. However, this place really was just a place to sleep since there's SO MUCH to do in Istanbul. Basically, the city as amazing, this hostel wasn't. For the same $, you can stay at a REAL hotel in the area.

Mosaic Hostel

Rome, Italy

This place was great. It was located close to the Termini train/bus station so we got around fairly easily. The room itself was really nice (especially the AC). The free breakfast was alright, nothing special. Overall, this a great value for Rome, a city that can get really expensive.

Hostel Gallo d'Oro

Florence, Italy

The location was excellent (5 minute walk to Accademia and 10 minute walk to the river). The free breakfast was really good and the atmosphere of the hotel was also great. The only thing was that the AC didn't work and it was really hot at night and we had to leave the window open even though it was really noisy outside.

Albergo Centrale bologna

Bologna, Italy

This hotel was a great option when traveling to Bologna. It was in the center of the city and very easy to get to all the major landmarks of Bologna. The staff was also very helpful and nice. The free breakfast was very good had a good variety. The only thing was that you had to pay for wifi (but only a small amount). It was great for its value and I would definitely recommend it.

Hotel Martello

Venice, Italy

Venice is a very expensive tourist trap so this place was a great value. However, it was on the mainland and still pretty expensive. Breakfast was not provided and the staff was very cold and rude (when we first got there she kept us waiting for 20 minutes with our giant backpacks on while she finished a conversation on the phone and on during our checkout she was making very snarky and backhanded remarks). I would not recommend this place since there are better options on the mainland.


The staff was great and extremely helpful. The place itself is close to the train station, but a fairly long walk away from anything else (renting a bike was fun though). The hostel had the friendliest and most chill atmosphere we experienced during our EuroTrip. The only thing that we didn't like was the free "breakfast". It was just toast, but they did have a special deal with a great breakfast place around the corner (just 9 Euros for two complete and really good breakfasts). Overall, great!

Hostel Paradis

Nice, France

This was a very convenient place to stay. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach, a 2 minute walk to all the bars/restaurants, and a 10 minute walk to Old Nice. They also gave us free stuff to use at the (very rocky) beach. There was no AC but it didn't really matter since we got a nice Mediterranean breeze every night. Good value for the price.

Vertigo Centre

Marseille, France

The hotel's location was terrible. I could not get ANY sleep from the outside noise and smells (and I had to leave windows open since there was no AC). Probably the hottest night I've ever had to endure. The wifi didn't reach all the rooms and the "breakfast" was just 2 pieces of bread and NOT free. We had planned to stay 2 nights in Marseille, but we could only handle 1. Basically, don't waste your money or time on this place or Marseille. Head over to Nice instead (only 1 hour by train).

Les Jardins de la Livree

Avignon, France

This was the best hotel I've ever stayed in. I'm someone who prefers small places to stay rather than huge Hiltons or other hotels. This place was perfect. Great staff, great food (from their own restaurant), and only a ten minute bus ride from Old Avignon. The room was excellent as well. However, the best part about this hotel was the pool. We loved taking a dip after a long day of walking around the city. Overall, based on the place itself, the staff, and the atmosphere, this hotel was 5stars


The place itself was small, but nice. We had everything you could possibly need and it was only a five minute walk from the train station and a ten minute walk from Old Lyon. The staff was great and always willing to help. The only things that we didn't really like were the outside noise from traffic (have to leave windows open since there is no AC) and the extremely small bathroom. Other than that, this is a great place to spend a night or two while you enjoy beautiful Lyon.


I've never met nicer people than the owners of this hostel. They were very helpful and attentive. We got a free french breakfast every morning and a free Korean dinner every night, so that was a plus. It was far a way from the city, but the metro was a three minute walk away so it wasn't that bad. The place itself wasn't exactly what you expect when you think of backpacking through Europe, but it didn't really matter to us. Basically, this hostel is great if you wanna save money in Paris.
