Nothing brings people together quite like some good eats! In fact, part of the allure of travelling the world is being able to experience exciting, new and sometimes adventurous cuisine wherever you go. We’ve rounded up a collection of some of the hostels that best understand how delicious your travels should be…

1. Hostel Alessandro Palace & Bar – Rome, Italy

The word “palace” is no hyperbole – this place is incredible! Gorgeous Roman architecture, some of the best free parties in town, and a delicious brand new restaurant in the hostel itself called “Bramble Bar & Kitchen.” Believe me, we’re not talking about a basic menu of toast and coffee. Bramble Bar offers some of the best food in the area (an area that just so happens to be ROME, so the food pedigree speaks for itself).
