The amazingly cosy hostel in Kaohsiung City With Inn Hostel plays with very original letters to show their logo.
It is made from old tools and hooks. Like that, travelers can notice the vintage-feeling from this taiwanese hostel from the first step through the door.
4. Bricks for an urban loft-look
Including bricks as a backdrop gives a gorgeous urban loft look.
It adds texture and color to any room. Palmers Lodge Swiss Cottage, one of the 5 Star Hostels in London, decided to combine bricks in its natural state and use paint over to create a modern and casual appearance.
The result is stunning!
Just have a look:
Now you might think, I do not have a brick wall in my place…
Did you know that there is bricks pattern adhesive wallpaper?
We have been in some restaurants which used it. Some of them looked so real it was hard to notice it was actually wallpaper.
5. Combine different lighting in the same area
Every area at home needs a different lighting, but you can actually combine different lighting in the same area to offer always the light you need!
For bedrooms, we just need a soft light, even though sometimes you would like to read.
Do you love books? Then add a direct light near your bed.
Here’s a good example of a former hostel in Moscow, Russia. There is a big lamp in the middle of the bedroom, and an individual lamp on each bed. Like this, travelers are able read or check their emails before going to sleep without disturbing other guests.
The stylish Berliner boutique hostel Wallyard Concept Hostel includes a pendant light in the center of the table to have extra illumination on it.
Combining the different lighting in their common area, this hostel do emphasize their industrial design vibes.
Combining real cinema seats with enormous air puffs, they also added some Film posters.
Al Pacino, the godfather, and rocky are watching you! It feels like a real cinema, shh….
With different hostel design decorations, the We Bologna Hostel, chose old vintage cinema chairs for their cinema club. The simple brown chairs are perfect to save some space and add a special cinema atmosphere.
Ready for tonight’s movie?

7. Evoque emotional feelings adding natural elements
Adding natural elements to our home decoration brings emotions: you can feel excited, calmed or soothed just adorning with birds, rustic leaves or even fruits.
The 5 Star Hostels in Amsterdam show it. Including natural elements to achieve a remarkable design is also very simple!
The funky eco-friendly Ecomama Hostel gave us bits from nature just adding some apples in their decoration.
It can’t be easier, neither healthier!
Its little sister and first boutique hostel in Amsterdam Cocomama, prefers to include trees in some of their bedrooms.
Let nature find itself into any space of you home and life, and feel how nature plays a role in your interiors.
Don’t you think fruits do look even more delicious that way?
From glasses which were jam jars to decorative elements, possibilities are endless. So, start using your imagination!
11. Keep dreaming (in a tailored bed)
When it comes to health, the bed is the most important furniture.
The sleep provides rest, transforming the way we feel. Our 5 Star Hostels are aware that rest is important. That is why some of them chose to build a tailored bed which will perfectly fit with their design ideas.
The industrial designed Swanky Mint Hostel in Zagreb built tailored bunk beds to match to their building industrial design.
Having a look around, this hostel will give you so many ideas for DIY projects!
They decided to conserve the stucco decorated staircase in their chalet. That is one of the elements that gives this hostel an incredible modern, yet traditional design to this sports hostel.
13. Re-new it! Upcycled furniture
That might be the most sexy part of this article!
We all get bored about our decoration at some point: some of us in 2 months, just 10 days, or luckily after a few years! The thing is: constantly buying new furniture is expensive (and not sustainable at all). Nowadays it is very trendy to include upcycled furniture!
So take advantage of it and play around.
There are 1000 of ways to apply upcycling ideas in a creative way!
