Staying in a hostel is a real high-risk, high-reward game. Some are amazing, with loads of people to meet, strong Wi-Fi and a killer breakfast buffet. But some are a little scummy, loud or just not comfortable. Here are some of the best top-rated places by city or country if you’ve got a specific destination in mind.
1. The Roadhouse, Prague.
Best for: Solo travellers who want to meet other people without staying in a party hostel. Less than two years old, this hostel is modern and – most importantly – clean. It’s got a 9.9 average rating which is practically unheard of.
