That’s the endearing slogan of the Famous Hostels group, which claims to have pinpointed all of the best hostels around Europe. Their service allows you to book a number of hostels strewn throughout the continent. The first time I came in contact with Famous Hostels was when I stayed at Kabul Backpackers Hostel in Barcelona, Spain. The walls were plastered with giant posts and logos and maps showing other great hostels in majority of the other countries of Europe. It made me curious as to who decided this hostel was worthy of being promoted as ‘famous,’ but after one night at Kabul Backpackers, I understood why it was chosen by the FH network. It was fun and chaotic, with so many people scrambling around, doing various activities, while all having one thing in common – the want to have a good time. After my stay, I decided to snag a brochure and every time I decided to book a hostel in a new country, I double checked Famous Hostels list to see if I could find another hostel with as much character and atmosphere.
