The Best Backpacking Experience with Famous Hostels
The Best Hostels in Europe for a Genuine Backpacker Experience with Famous Hostels
Many years ago, when backpacking was done with Lonely Planet guidebooks and a paper map, there were some hostels in Europe that everyone knew about - ones that you had to stay at - or you hadn’t really travelled Europe. They were like the Holy Grail - you had to see them to believe them. A bit like The Beach; but without all the crazy stuff. Well, some of it. Stayed at The Flying Pig in Amsterdam? The Pink Palace in Corfu? Then you’ll know what we’re talking about.

These hostels were the stuff dreams are made of - party, explore, discover, have the best time of your life, repeat.
23 years later and they are still going strong: bigger and better than ever. These hostels are Famous Hostels for a variety of reasons - but the crucial one is: they offer something that no other hostel in that destination does: a unique genuine backpacker experience.

Famous Hostel member hostels are special. They are all unique, whether they’re a party hostel in an old palace in Madrid or beach front living in Rimini.
