Who can stay in a youth hostel ?

Hostels have become a budget-friendly alternative to hotels praised by many travellers. However, who are hostels really intended for ? Numerous hostel customers are single travellers. Indeed, this type of accommodation suits their needs by offering comfortable but reasonably priced individual lodgings. This alternative accommodation is convenient for someone on a business trip, for a student who’s house-hunting or someone visiting town…
Backpackers are considered to be the right people wishing to stay in hostels. Indeed, they often travel alone and are keen on staying in hostels to enjoy an affordable lodging during their journey

Groups of friends

For a birthday, a bachelorette/hen party or a stay with friends, Youth Hostels are ideal. For a group of friends of 4 to 8 people, privatising a dorm is very economical and is a way to enjoy more privacy together.
Hostels usually offer a busy programme with events planned throughout the week, giving the opportunity for travellers staying with friends to have fun and meet new people.


For a weekend or extended holidays, youth hostels are a budget-friendly alternative for families looking for affordable accommodation. For larger families, privatising a dormitory is the most comfortable solution for a family experience. For smaller families, the increasingly available private rooms within youth hostels are ideal.
