Top 10 Party Hostels in the World

The Locals Only formula for choosing a cool hostel to stay in: 

  1. Location, location, location
  2. People to meet
  3. Shit to do 
  4. Tons of booze

From Greece to Thailand, and The Land Down Under… Here are 10 of the world’s best party hostels!

Paraga Beach Hostel

The goto spot for young travelers on a budget and want to stay right on the beach. On an island known for partying, you might as well take full advantage of your surroundings and spend a few nights at Paraga Beach.

It’s a place where you’ll experience beautiful ocean views, pool parties with DJ’s, and where strangers somehow become your best friend. Besides being at the center of nightlife on Mykonos, Paraga has clean rooms, a bar (obviously), WIFI, hot showers, and a restaurant.

Flying Pig

If you’re reading this and you’re over 40, we’re sorry to inform you that both Flying Pig Hostels have an under 40 age requirement….You can’t win em’ all Mom and Dad.

Both locations serve some of the best priced drinks in town, and have bars open til’ 4 AM. Get your hustle on at the pool table or feel free to contribute to the Flying Pig’s very weed friendly reputation. It’s always a good scene at the Flying Pig’s establishments, but don’t expect any club like qualities here, because 8 out of 10 humans are so stoned that they seem to be on a different planet.

The Pink Palace

You guessed it…this palace is pink! Tucked away in Agios Gordios Bay, this hostel definitely brings out your inner party animal! The Pink Palace will surely keep you entertained as it has a laundry list of fun stuff to do.

The Pink Palace is way up on this list because they’ve done a great job of diversifying their millennial activity portfolio. They offer boat excursions that are full of cliff diving, beer bongs, and snorkeling. If boats aren’t your thing, they have a fleet of ATV’s available to explore local castles and sand dunes. Once the sun goes down, it’s time for the Palace’s world famous toga parties in their own private nightclub. Yea we can’t wait to go back…

Slumber Party

This hostel is absolutely mad! They call themselves “the home of the biggest and baddest party in Thailand” – with a claim like that, best believe they deliver. Brace yourself for a lighting round of free shots and drinking games before you head out to the famous Bangla Road for a bar crawl experience you’ll never remember. Slumber Party is conveniently located by the beach, and a short walk from Bangla Road…so you won’t have to walk your drunk ass too far to get home.

LO Inside Scoop – Slumber Party has additional locations in Koh Phangan, Krabi, Ao Nang Beach, and Bangkok!

The oldest private hostel in Interlaken has been operating for more than 60 years, and they haven’t lost a step. Balmer is still the place to stay for the best party and adventure experience.

With world cup themed parties centered around a massive projector screen, international Dj’s, and extreme sport packages all in one of the most picture-perfect settings on the planet, what’s not to love?

Wake Up!

Located in the city center directly across from Central Station, Wake Up! was rated “Sydney’s most popular Hostel of 2017”. This place does everything to facilitate a great night out, and a provides its guests with a very comfy living situation.

During your stay at the Wake Up! Hostel, you’ll be able to play bar trivia, eat cheap meals, embark on beach tours, and the best part…they throw parties and events everyday!

A stay at Far Out Beach Club will send you into the middle of a backpacker’s paradise. Situated right on Mylopotas Beach, Far Out has a medley of activities to keep you entertained. From pool competitions, to sports facilities, and one of the most happening clubs on the island.

If you’re a little burnt out and looking to slow down the pace, the Far Out Village pool and bar is a great spot to relax and refuel. We call this “detox for the retox”.

Rising Cock

In one of the most party crazed cities in Europe, The Rising Cock is hands-down the place to stay in Lagos. How can you beat booze cruises, toga parties, free pub crawls, and festivities on one of the most scenic beaches in Portugal?

This place really cares about their guests, and when you stay here, it’s almost like staying at your best friend’s beach house. Remember, booking a room at The Rising Cock isn’t just a bed, you’re also booking the ultimate Lagos party experience. From check in to check out, it’s one hell of a time!

G-Spot

In the heart of Lisbon, you’ll finally find the G-Spot, the one and only party hostel in town. They’ll make sure your stay is unforgettable by offering nightly pub crawls, VIP entrances to the best Lisbon clubs, discounts on tours, clean rooms, and free breakfast to help aid that throbbing feeling in your brain.

The G-Spot is more than a hostel, it’s more like a dysfunctional family. When you’ve spent some wild nights out, and shared your travel stories with your new friends, it’s going to be tough to leave. But a wise man once said “You have to leave to come back”.

Home of the largest party hostel in Siem Reap! Located half a mile away from the famous Pub Street, Funky Flashpackers can’t be missed. The hostel has a motel style set-up that is centered around their pool and bar, and they’re always bringing in Dj’s that take the pool parties to another level. They have two bars with one staying open 24/7, along with clean rooms and the option to have a private dorm for a small fee.

After you’ve explored Angkor Wat, you’ll come back to beer towers by the pool, and multiple “overloads”, the goto drink at Funky Flashpackers.

Retox

Potentially the most wild and outrageous establishment on the list, the name says it all! A stay at Retox will steal your heart and liver, and leave you with some wicked party stories where the details might be a tad fuzzy…

You’ll be staying in an old courtyard type building decked out with graffiti from local artists. We recommend drinking at the bar during the day and hitting the town at night. Don’t expect top notch facilities or a good night sleep, but do expect to make new friends, live free, and be smack in the middle of the Budapest nightlife scene.
