World's Best Hostels


The World's Best Hostels

by Jessica Howell

Hostels - they appeal to the young, the budget-minded and the fiercly independent backpackers among us. A comfortable space and a warm environment are breeding grounds for personal tips, suggestions and advice that go far beyond that of any concierge. Finally being appreciated for their significant role in the travel sphere, hostels cease to slow in popularity. And as a recent HostelWorld.com survey shows, there are plenty worthy of awards.

Dublin was host to this year's third annual "Hoscars" Award Ceremony - a celebration of this year's hottest hostels tailored for an international audience. Winners were chosen by more than 500,000 hostel users who voted on over 10,000 properties. Each voter was surveyed after their hostel stay and asked to "grade" the property on six criteria: character, security, location, staff, fun and cleanliness.

And so, the winners of Hostelworld.com's Top Ten Hostels in the World are...

1. Friendly Fun Frank's Backpacker Hostel: Riga, Latvia
2. Picasso's Corner Backpacker Hostel: Malaga, Spain
3. Mama's Hostel: Krakow, Poland
4. Oasis Backpackers Hostel: Granada, Spain
5. Athens Backpackers: Athens, Greece
6. Wombats City Hostel: Munich, Germany
7. MuchoMadrid: Madrid, Spain
8. Hôme Deluxe: Valencia, Spain
9. Indigo Youth Hostel: Valencia, Spain
10. Funky Backpackers: Granada, Spain

The Hoscars also recognize several other categories important to travelers. These winners include:

Best Small Hostel - Nord Hostel, St Petersburg, Russia
Best Large Hostel - Wake Up! Sydney, Australia
Most Secure - MuchoMadrid, Madrid, Spain
Cleanest - EastSeven Berlin Hostel, Berlin, Germany
Best Staff - Picasso's Corner Backpackers Hostel, Malaga, Spain
Best Character - Red Lantern House, Beijing, China
Most Fun - Oasis Backpackers Hostel, Granada, Spain
Best Location - Mama's Hostel, Krakow, Poland
