European Gay Hostels

Climbing into bed at 4 AM. That wouldn’t be like us…

Yet with the disco remixes of all our beloved gay anthems still echoing in our heads, we know we deserve a rest after a long day of exploring the city. We can still hear the laughter of patrons who are leaving the long line of bars and clubs which populate the gay village, and relish in the thought that although we’re miles from home, we still feel surrounded by our big gay happy family! This is the feeling of being in a gay hostel, regardless of where we are…

When interrailing around Europe, we found European Gay Hostels a great place to connect with fellow LGBTQ backpackers who have since turned into lifelong friends. We love the cool vibe in them, that exciting traveller atmosphere you don’t quite get in hotels. We’ve put together our 5 favourite gay hostels in Europe based on our experience backpacking across the continent.

Gay travel in Europe

As a rule, Europe is super gay-friendly! We’ve never had a problem booking a double bed in a room, particularly in North and West Europe, which has most of the gay-friendly countries in the world. However, the more East you head, the less queer-friendly it becomes, although there are some pockets of fabulousness in East Europe.

If you are travelling around the Balkans or around East Europe, we definitely advise calling/emailing ahead to check they’re ok to host gay travellers just to be on the safe side, particularly in the rural areas. If, however, you’re heading to places like Berlin, Madrid, Cologne, Brighton etc, we can assure you, you’re not going to have any problems!
