We're turning 20 - and you're invited!

Meeting people from all over the world since 1999!

Party with us

IT’S OUR BIRTHDAY, so we’re gonna party like it’s our birthday! We want to say a MASSIVE thank you for being part of our wonderful, wander-full journey over the last twenty years, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, we are hosting The World’s Biggest Hostel Party! As we turn 20 years young, we’re throwing 20 parties, over 20 days, in 20 amazing hostels across 20 different countries! And the best bit is, YOU are invited!

If you like to travel like a local, party like a rock star and sleep like a log, you’ve come to the right place! Join us as we party around the world, and time travel from 1999 to 2019! (Note: 2016 didn’t make it on our guest list for various reasons. We're all about being inclusive, but 2016 produced a few party poopers who’d disagree. Sad.). At each global hostel party, you can expect fun-filled fancy-dress, dorms and dancefloors, throwbacks and backpacks, plus one-hour of free booze! WOOP! If that all sounds good to you, check out 20 of our finest hostels around the world, where you can join the World’s Biggest Hostel Party! 😉

We’ve loved every second of the last two decades, helping you lovely lot Meet The World and live the travel dream! Since 1999, we’ve grown a bit... Firstly, we've ditched our scrunchies and curtains (great haircut) and evolved from 1 idea, to 5 global offices, offering you 16,500 hostels across 179 countries. Thanks to your 11.5 million hostel reviews, together we've helped millions of adventure-seekers create unforgettable travel memories. And we won’t stop there! 20 years young, with many more adventures to come!
