Adopt A Hostel – A Little Help For Our Friends
Adopt a Hostel is a gift card campaign that was started by a few wonderful hostel allies, who wanted to help hostels get through this current coronavirus pandemic. Many hostels worldwide have had to close due to local government and/or travel restrictions, leaving them with bills to pay and no money coming in. Through Adopt A Hostel, you can help save hostels by buying gift cards for future stays, or simply make donations. It really is the best way you can show support – by the giving hostels cash now when they need it most, you can help ensure they will get through the other side. Think of it as a promise that you make to yourself and your favourite hostels that you’ll be back to visit when everything settles down.
One of the best things about being in this industry is the hostel community we are fortunate to be part of. We’ve met incredible people along the way, and have had the pleasure of staying in their places. If you’ve already bought a gift card to come back and stay with us, why not support some other hostels at the same time and make a whole Euro-trip of it? These are some of our favourite hostels in Europe who are also selling gift cards on Adopt a Hostel:
Budapest Party Hostels – Carpe Noctem, Vitae, Retox, Grandio, Meander, Penthouse Privates (Budapest, Hungary)
5 Terre Backpackers City (Cinque Terre, Italy)
Reveller’s (Belgrade, Serbia)
Castle Rock (Edinburgh, Scotland)
Mosquito (Krakow, Poland)
Soul Kitchen (St. Petersburg, Russia)
We are truly grateful to everyone who has bought gift cards and made donations to us so far. Our Mad Family has really not let us down and has shown us that we’re really all in this together. If you haven’t already, and are in a position where you’re able to help, click on the Gift Cards tab.
Stay safe and healthy and keep thinking to future travelling!
