Some Cool Hostels in Europe to Visit


It’s common for young adults and backpackers to stay at hostels where travelling to, in, or around Europe.  A hostel is a place to rent that will provide a bed, shower, and often a meal for a night, a week, and sometimes longer.  They’re a lot less expensive than a hotel because they’re usually shared facilities, not private.  Some of the coolest hotels in Europe are listed below.

The Yellow

The Yellow is in Termini Station in Rome.  The Yellow has a bar that’s open late and provides drink specials for its guests.  It doesn’t have a curfew or lockout period.  They often host parties, like costume and toga, so you may want to check their calendar to see if there’s something going on during your stay.  One reason this is one of the coolest hostels in Europe is because of the “The Yellow’s Famous Pub Crawl”, a Yellow staffer will guide you around the best party spots in Rome for you and your fellow hostel guests to sample.
