Vote for your favourite hostel for the chance to win £200

July 01, 2016

Have you stayed in one of our hostels and had an experience that went above and beyond expectations?

We want your help to select 3 outstanding hostels that you feel are worthy of a HI Fan Favourite award.

Once the results have been collated, we will also select five lucky entrants who voted for one of the three winning hostels, to receive £200 each.

The voting period will be from 1st July 2016 to 31st July 2016, so get voting!

Voting is easy – simply navigate to your favourite hostel’s page on, click the social share icon for either Facebook or Twitter, and share the page in a post or Tweet:

1) Search for the city your favourite hostel is in.

2) Select the hostel from the list of options.

3) In the top right hand corner of the hostels page, you will see social media sharing icons. Click either the Facebook or Twitter icon depending on which platform you wish to share the link on.

4) If you are not already logged into Facebook or Twitter, you’ll be asked to log in.

5) Once logged in, it will present you with dialogue box for you to share your favourite hostel page. It may ask you to ‘say something about this’. If you want to enter the free prize draw, be sure to tag Hostelling International in your post or Tweet when you share the hostel page:

Facebook: @HostellingInternational1

Twitter: @hostelling

Doing this means we (and anyone else who looks at our Facebook or Twitter page) can see that you shared this hostel.

6) Click ‘post’! We’ll count up all the votes for every one of our hostels and amalgamate the results from both Facebook and Twitter to select our winners.

Conosco mas de 30 albergues,en todo el mundo y me han fasinado .Tengo muy buen concepto.

Mi albergue favorito es el Hostel Carlos Paz de la ciudad de Carlos Paz. Sé que ahora lo han desafectado, espero que lo vuelvan a incorporar. Es excelente por la comodidad, atención y las vistas que tiene sobre la ciudad y el lago.

DA best hostel ever!!!!!!!!

My friend &I truly enjoyed our stay @ the Dudsleye hostile near Brugge. We were planning to stay 1 night & stayed 3 instead. It was clean, comfy & a happy environment. Hats off to the staff!!

Martha vineyard hostel was one of my best experience ever. The place was cleaner than four star hotel. My trip was heavenly. The staff excellent.

I truly appreciated the hostel in Vancouver, Canada which my sister and I utilized–a memory that is even sweeter now that brain cancer has taken her from us. I loved the frequency and timeliness of the local buses and the serenity of the setting. The helps and tips from folks there, staff and fellow guests, enhanced the time in Vancouver and on to Victoria, etc. Thank you!
