Where we stay
Our trip accommodations are a mix of boutique hostels and standard hotels, always located in safe and convenient areas.
Stay in a mix of classic hotels and comfortable hostels.
The majority of our trips fall into this category. Travelers will stay at both hotels and hostels (think: cool shared spaces, strong communal vibes, and often situated in the heart of the destination)—all with the basic amenities you’re used to at home. You’ll room with as many as 4-5 new travel BFFs from your group, and whether a hotel or hostel, you’ll always have en suite bathrooms.
Backpacker style trips
Stay in authentic, trendy hostels on fast-paced, multi-country tours.
Our backpacker style trips—Ultimate Europe, Grand Tour of Europe, European Summer, and Highlights of Europe—are all 24 days or longer. (Don’t worry, you can bring more than a backpack.) On these trips, you’ll stay at hostels and share a room with five or more fellow travelers. Our curated hostels offer a fun atmosphere with sweet common areas and outdoor spaces. Bathrooms are commonly shared, but gender-specific.
Ultimate Plus trips
Upgraded hotels with only one roommate.
Want to stay exclusively at upgraded hotels with only one roommate throughout the entire trip? Upgrade to Ultimate Plus. It’s perfect for friends booking together, couples, or anyone that appreciates just a little more privacy. Oh, and you’ll get extra meals included throughout the trip at local restaurants. Many of our standard trips are also offered as Ultimate Plus. Just look for the star!
