World Hostels

Post Covid 19 Reopening Survey

We wanted to understand how backpackers feel about travelling post-lockdown and what social distancing measures they expect to be put in place in hostels.

So we formed a hostel collective (15 hostel brands worldwide) and sent out to our networks across the world. Here's an overview of the amazing responses with a link to the full report below.

Thanks to all the participants and partners that made this possible!
