What is HostelPass?
HostelPass is the first pass that allows you to buy your nights for one-price and use them all around Europe.
How does it work?
Pre-pay a fixed price for the number of nights you want lodging during your trip. Then, up to 72 hours before you want to stay, fill out our super quick booking form to tell us where and when you want a bed. We'll do all of the grunt work and find you a stellar hostel that matches your preferences and meets our strict quality check, all within the budget of your Pass.
We understand that you don’t want to spend all of your time on your phone or computer looking for the best hostel when you could be outside exploring the beautiful new cities that you are in. That’s why we are here!
What cities can I use HostelPass in?
You can use your pass to stay in Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona, Budapest, Lisbon, London, Paris, and Prague. If you want us to add another city to the pass please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll contact the best hostels as soon as possible.
What should I expect from a hostel?
You should expect to meet likeminded people from all over the world, all on their own journeys around Europe and all with interesting stories to tell. You should also expect to sleep in a shared room with these likeminded strangers, oftentimes in a bunk bed. But as William Butler Yeats once said “There are no strangers, only friends you have not met yet.”
Some hostel rooms are en-suite (bathrooms in the room), which you will share with your roommates, while others have shared bathrooms outside of the rooms.
Most hostels have free breakfast and some even have free dinner. Many also have kitchens where you can cook yourself a nice meal to share with your new friends before a city tour or pub-crawl organized by your hostel. No matter what city you’re in, by staying in curated hostels through HostelPass – you will meet like-minded people from all over the world.
How do you pick the hostel that is best for me?
We make sure that we only partner with the best hostels in every city. The two founders – Sarah and Meir - have toured Europe and handpicked the hostels to add to the HostelPass platform. We promise that we won’t put you in a bed that we wouldn’t happily sleep in (and we’ve got high standards!).
Also, through our sorting and filtering algorithm based on your preferences, we make sure that the hostels we offer are curated for you and have good vibes.
When should I book?
You should book as soon as you know that you will be staying in a city so that you can make sure that you get the best hostel that matches your preference. Don’t forget that the best hostels fill the fastest and as much as we would love to, we can’t make more beds appear out of thin air.
How many people will I share my room with?
Unless you specify that you want to share a room with many people (a larger dorm room), we will offer you a bed in the most private dorm room available in the hostel. Dorm room sizes can rage from 4 people to 22 people (although that is mainly for the hardcore hosteller), and average around 6-8 people per room.
What if there's no availability in the city that I want to stay in?
Fortunately for you, we work with many hostels in each city, so a total lack of availability is very unlikely. However, don’t forget that the best hostels fill the fastest and as much as we would love to, we can’t make more beds appear out of thin air.
Can I stay in a private room?
For now, HostelPass is only for dorm rooms. Stay tuned for our Private Room Pass.
What if I don't use all of my nights?
You can start saving for your next trip! But please note that the nights that have been purchased with the low-season discount cannot be used during the high-seasons.
How long is my Pass valid for?
HostelPass is only valid during the specified season and expires 2 years after purchase if not used at all. If you would like to return HostelPass after purchasing, but before using the first night you will be charged a cancellation fee equal to fifteen percent (15%) of the purchase price of your Pass.
After you use the first night of your HostelPass, your nights expire in one-year following the date that your pass is first used.
