The Best Hostels in the World According to the Hoscars ...

My first memory of a hostel (at school) is pretty horrendous when I look back on it. It was more like a barrack room dorm but back then (I won’t tell you how long ago) it was a great way to have a cheap holiday, particularly for a group. These days, I have no hesitation in recommending hostels. They aren’t just for backpackers and hippies. They have seriously upped their game and easily give hotels a run for their money. Each year Hostelworld.com awards the Hoscars – the Hostel Oscars – to the best. Here are some of the current award holders:

1. The Best Small Hostel – Soul Kitchen, St. Petersburg, Russia

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Scooping first the Best Hostel in Russia, then the Best Hostel in Europe prizes, Soul Kitchen, scooped the prize for Overall Best Small Hostel. A new generation hostel, Soul Kitchen is superbly conceptualized and equipped throughout. It happily combines the privacy of a hotel with the social vibe of a hostel.
