A new concept in recent years. HostelGeeks pick the very best hostel in many destinations, awarding it their 5 Star rating.
I tried to book at one — KEX hostel, Iceland — when I was there, but it was full. For weeks in advance.
Later on the same trip I got to my first – Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof, Interlaken, Switzerland. Fantastic.
My second was Mosaic House in Prague. It feels more a 3 star hotel than hostel. Great food!

My third was Maverick City Lodge, Budapest. Very good too.
The dorm beds are curtained pods.
These cost a few dollars more than average, but it’s worth it.
