#sayHItoESN and win a trip of your dreams!

We are proud to say that for the last 2 years we have been a global partner of Erasmus Student Network!

To celebrate it, we would like to invite you to take part in our competition which winner will have an unique opportunity to explore Europe completely for free!


During that period we have hosted thousands of exchange students from 45 countries in our 4,000 hostels all over the world! We met not only in Europe, but also in such an exotic places as South Africa, Canada, Japan, Malaysia and Australia!

We are especially proud of taking part in #MobilityIsMyLifestyle, a competition organized by Mov’in Europe. It was a pleasure to welcome the winner – Ana-Marija in our hostels and we would like to repeat it!

I learned a lot in just these two weeks. A lot about myself (that I need to learn how to cook something more than hotdogs) and a lot about other people and other cultures. It is really hard to put into words what a big impact this had on me. It strengthened me in many ways and it also strengthened my will to continue exploring the world.

The winner along with a person of his choice, will be hosted by us for two nights in one of our hostels in Europe!
