Portugal, Top 5 Hostels

When it comes to choosing the right hostel, things can get confusing and overwhelming with the amount of choices you have. Most people choose a hostel based on the lowest price, not really thinking about the importance of where they stay. Staying at the right hostel matters and if you are willing to pay a little more, you will not only have a great accommodation, but an experience to remember.

So, I decided to do a series of posts from the top 5 hostels in cities I’ve visited, based on best ratings, facilities, location and prices.

Europe, Serbia

Between the six countries I visited in 2016, Serbia was the one that scared me the most. I had spent ten days in Bosnia, getting all sorts of information about the Bosnian/Serbian war. I watched more documentaries than I could count. Maybe it was because I loved Bosnia so much, but there was a part of me that seemed to blame Serbia for the atrocities of the war. Or maybe any country would have a hard time competing for my love, after Bosnia. All I know is that Belgrade was not what I expected, and I left disappointed.

Bosnia, Europe, Hostel Reviews

Choosing your accommodation can be hard. There are, usually, too many options with similar ratings and prices, and picking the right place can be overwhelming. The hostel you choose will define part of your feeling for the city you’re visiting.

Europe, Italy

Back in 2015 I traveled alone for the first time. I spent an entire month backpacking Italy, and Florence had been on my bucket list my entire life. I fell madly in love with this magic city, so by the time I had to leave I made the promise I would be back to Florence one day. Never really thought I would be able to go back so soon, but after a year I was back in Florence and ready to eat all the pasta and gelato and feel like an Italian again.

Europe, Inspiration


Last year I stayed at a hostel for the first time while backpacking Europe alone for three months. I had no idea what to expect, but if you take one or two really crappy hostels I stayed at, I fell in love with the hostel experience. I loved how I could stay in these amazing places for as little as 5€ and I would even wake up to breakfast right at the common area without having to take off my pajamas. I loved how it didn’t feel awkward to share a room with ten other people. I loved how I could just make a new friend by saying hello or good morning from my own bed.

Europe, Slovenia


I went back to Slovenia only to finally visit Lake Bled. I basically did the exact same route as last year, getting a bus from Florence all the way to Ljubljana, an 8h bus that is not that bad and time pretty much flies. Once I passed that boarder into Slovenia I had tears in my eyes. There’s something about this country that seems to bring me back to life, that seems to bring joy back into my life, and if just passing the boarder once made me happy, doing it the second time was even more emotional.
