At Contiki, we’re changing the way young travellers do hostels, from the quality of comfort to the awesome extras that make your stay that much better. We check-in to some of Europe’s top hostels in some great locations and forget about bunking it in cramped 10 person dorms – these quad and twin share hostels, with private facilities (because no one wants to wait in line for the shower) are places you actually want to come home to.
Plus, when you travel with Contiki, staying at hostels doesn’t mean sacrificing your favourite things. We’ve chosen accommodations that pull out all the stops – on site restaurants, swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas and internet cafes. With many of the same facilities offered at hotels (and a few hotel upgrades thrown in for good measure), what’s not to love?
Located between two main metro stops and featuring a cool contemporary design, the Generator Hostel is the perfect base from which to explore Barcelona. Its buzzing atmosphere is only made better with free WiFi, a sun-soaked terrace and tasty breakfasts to fuel up on each morning.
Berlin is one of Europe’s best cities for young people, so it’s no surprise that we stay at its coolest hostel. With an indoor swimming pool, sauna, restaurant, bar and free yoga classes every Thursday, Plus Hostel is the perfect place to retreat to after a long day exploring Berlin…or a big night out indulging in a stein or two of German beer.
