Yes you read that right; luxury hostels are a thing and they are plentiful no matter where in the world you decide to explore!
We won’t kid you – we love a bit of luxury. Days, weeks, maybe months of travel can take its toll and so it’s absolutely appropriate that you may fancy a bit of luxury here and there. Or maybe all the time? We won’t tell anyone!
In this guide we bring you a collection of the best, most luxurious hostels around the world. It is part of our big guide to hostels where we cover everything you need to know about hostels.
And of course, we couldn’t help but throw in a few 5 Star Hostels. It would be rude not to, afterall.
We couldn’t put together a guide to the best luxury hostels without including one of the many gorgeous Selina hostels and hotels. It was a tough choice, but we’ve gone with one of our faves; Selina Tulum.
The concept of this property is complementary opposites, namely light and dark.
By day enjoy sunrise meditation, yoga, a healthy breakfast by the pool and a day catching up with work in the dedicated co-working space.
By night enjoy a delicious dinner at the hostel restaurant and then head to the Beach Club for an epic party.
This beachfront hotel is right on the beachfront, nestled between the sacred Tulum ruins and Sian Ka’an’s nature reserve – it’s absolutely gorgeous.
Other amenities include a pizza garden, cinema, bike rentals and A/C in all of the rooms.
Honestly, the design of this hostel is hard to beat. Just look at what is included here:
Mediterranean inspired beach pool
Diving platform, swing, days beds
The photos speak for themselves, really.
There is only shared rooms here including female and mixed dorms. As you can see, the beds are larger than normal and each bunk is custom made with gorgeous details such as staircases instead of ladders.
Oooh this answer is debatable. In our opinion, luxury means having all the amenities and spaces that make you feel safe, comfortable and at home. Things like privacy curtains on bunkbeds, access to a modern shared kitchen, free breakfast, feather pillows, ensuite bathrooms…
