Staying in hostels can be one of the best things about being a budget traveller. You get to meet cool people from around the world, stay in an awesome part of a new city and let loose on the dancefloor with your new found friends.

If you stay at a St Christopher’s hostel you can expect LOADS more amazing memories than just the above. We may be biased, but it’s not just us saying it! Check out these 19 reasons why our travelling community on Facebook love staying at our hostels…

Holly Searle

"Christmas evening 2014 in Brugge when we had our first orphan Christmas and drowned our homesick woes in the jagerbomb specials and had one of the best Christmases ever."

"After having solo travelled in other parts of Europe for 2 weeks, St. Christopher’s Inn Paris was the best thing that happened on that trip. Met one person at a time ending up in a huge group of other solo travellers where we discussed lifestyles and politics in our respective part of the world, explored the city together, ate together and had just the best time. Repeated the same story in St. Christopher’s Inn's sister hostel in Prague. Best place for solo travellers and explorers."

Chan Xiao Shan

"Trying to squeeze passed the bouncers outside Belushi, thinking that they were rude strangers blocking the entrance. When asked for ID, I showed them my room card instead! (It was our first time at a bar)."

Markie Lee

"Meeting this lovely bunch of guys and gals (below) #friendsforlife"

Jen Dolph

"My best memory at St. Christopher's was turning 18 in London in 2008. The whole hostel came together to make it the best birthday ever. Everyone went out and got one item to pull together a birthday party. I had a sash, a crown, and a birthday cake with candles and everything. We had a blast at Belushi's dancing and singing karaoke. I'll never forget so many strangers going out of their way and spending their time and money to make my day special."

Daniel Shane Davis

"My favourite memory was from Paris at St Christopher's Gare du Nord hanging out with a group from 6 different countries grabbing food at 3 in the morning waiting for the Canelo Alvarez v. GGG fight."

Carolyn Cardinal

"I came to London to celebrate New Years, it was really great!"
