A relaxed atmosphere and a whole bunch of friendly faces will usually be the first things to greet you if you stay in a hostel on your next trip away. Most hostels are equipped with communal spaces where you can chat to and get to know other travellers, many have games rooms and outdoor areas for eating in a group or having a bbq, and some even have self-service laundry rooms for travellers on extended holidays or backpacking trips.

If you're a solo traveller, hostels are perfect if you're keen to stay among like-minded individuals who share your wanderlust.

Alternatively, if you do need a bit of space and to be alone during your travels, you can request your own bedroom but make use of a shared bathroom in order to make the travel budget go a little further. So for anyone looking for budget-driven but sociable accommodation, a hostel is the perfect choice for your holiday digs.

These types of lodgings tend to be full of character and have their own charming design features, so you're unlikely to stay in a hostel that looks like any other you've stayed in.
