The best news: it is not simply boring photos and marketing pitches that you will find.
Instead, it is the (mostly) authentic representation of the daily life at a hostel!
New travelers arriving at the building, new friends saying good-bye, interior design, fun quotes, photos from their events – the list is endless.
It is a good recommendation to check out the Instagram feed of a hostel before booking – here you will find 15 more hacks and tips for booking hostels like a pro.
We are a huge fan of Instagram! If you have been following us here at Hostelgeeks, you will have noticed this already.
Our Instagram feed is full of travel photos from the road, design spots from all over the world, our hostel guide, and – you guessed it – amazing Hostels.
We also do live sessions.
Here we walk live through the 5 Star Hostels of this world.
Let’s have a look at 25 amazing Hostels through the Instagram Filter:
1. The Passenger Hostel in Porto
Neat design in a monument, historic building: Welcome to The Passenger Hostel in Porto.
The best hostel in Porto opened its doors in 2017 and conquered the hostel scene within no time. The 5m high-ceilings, the neat design, art all over, and the cozy rooms and beds, bring all the comfort in the world to one hostel.
It is located only a 5 minutes walk away from the beach, how cool is that?! The team of STAY Hostel uses Instagram especially during summer and high-season. We especially love the small videos they capture to show how to make a juice, how to fold your clothes, and more!

Their instagram is definitely aimed to be social, and not a channel for pure marketing. They show you around the hostel, capturing fun photos of Joop (the hostel cat) and the must-see sights of Amsterdam.
Most traveler misses out and only travel to Hoi An, but skip Da Nang. We highly recommend visiting the city and the dragon bridge of Da Nang. After living here for 6 months, we wrote a big detailed guide on the 34 best things to do in Da Nang, including craft beer and roof top terraces.
