At the beginning of the year 2021, we made a list of the most eccentric hostels we had ever seen.
These are such unusual places that our readers were surprised and we decided to bring more items to your list.
Then, when you travel, you will be able to choose between unique options to live an experience that will forever tell your friends and grandchildren.
See our new selection of the most unique hostels to stay. Would you spend the night in one of them?
1. Book and Bed – Tokyo Japan
A haven for bibliophiles, this hosels looks like a used bookstore until guests slide open a bookshelf and reveal a cozy nook with a simple bed, reading light, and electrical outlet. Unabashedly bare-bones and not for the claustrophobic, 30 stacked cubbies, each big enough for one person, are available behind the shelves filled with 3,000 titles in Japanese and English.
Bathrooms are shared, and couches in the area outside of the bookshelves provide a communal reading and gathering area. It’s more hostel than hotel, and at 3,500 yen (U.S. $35) guests will have plenty of cash left over for new books and exploring Tokyo.
2 – Bambuda Castle, Panama
Bambuda is hostel royalty. A swimming pool, a hot tub, a massive balcony with a killer view of Panama’s coffee fields, and a rock climbing wall, are all among the many perks that make this one of a kind hostel fit for a king.
You’re guaranteed to spend more time at the castle than you spend in the tiny town of Boquete, nestled in the waterfall-strewn hills of Panama’s Highlands.
3 – HI Ottawa Jail – Ottawa, Canadá
The former Carleton County Gaol prison that is now the Ottawa Jail Hostel is a historic landmark that will give you the unique opportunity to sleep in an old prison cell. This downtown hostel has a lot of character and charm and is an excellent base for exploring Canada’s capital.
Ottawa Jail Youth Hostel offers a unique mix of individual and shared cells, as well as traditional shared and private hostel-style rooms. There are also areas whose disposition is still the time when they were occupied by detainees, including death row and gallows.
4 – Jumbostay – Stockholm, Sweden
From the mid of January 2009 can guests for the first time ever, be able to spend the night in a real, converted jumbo jet – on the ground!
This is the perfect way to start your trip abroad. The plane is a used out jumbo jet model 747-212B from 1976. It has been awarded a brand new, modern interior decoration, offering night guests an experience apart.
It’s exciting for aviation enthusiasts and families with children as well as for business people.
5 – The Monastery Hostel Milan, Italy
Located in Via Bertoni, in a wing of the beautiful Franciscan Friars Convent, The Monastery Hostel offers an accommodation in the heart of Milan where fashion, culture and business meet.
The Hostel is placed in the “Fashon District” and benefits of an extremely privileged location, since, because of its strategic position, it is easy to reach the main significant sites and the most important shopping areas in Milan.
6 – The Cave Hostel, Turkey
The Cave House is a family-run guest house that overlooks the gorgeous old town of Goreme. The hostel has been carved from the Cappadocia rock and it has individually-styled rooms that come with locally made furniture. They are highly recommended from Fodor’s to Trip Advisor.
