If you’ve traveled around hostels for a while, you’ll notice a few consistent options. There will most often be a shared dorm for around 4, 6, 8 and even sometimes 10-12 people. There are also hostels that have private rooms for the backpackers who need their alone time away.

But have you heard of hammock hostels? If you haven’t yet, then it’s an option to explore. This “bed” accommodation type is usually cheaper than the normal bunk bed options, and they’re great for saving up.

They’re Simply Fun

You’ll feel like you’re floating on a cloud when you find yourself nestled in one of these hammocks. It’s like having your own personal bed in the air. The best thing? It’s also surprisingly comfortable!


Tropical Vibes
