Hostelworld Celebrates 20th Birthday with Epic Global Party Tour

With the likes of Mariah Carey and 50 Cent apparent fans of hostel travel—where low prices, shared accommodations and sociable common areas reign supreme—it’s no wonder that this hospitality category is going gangbusters. In fact, findings from Phoscuswright’s Global Hostel Marketplace 2016-2020 in one published report indicate tremendous hostel market growth, which is estimated to reach a whopping $6.4 billion in 2020. That’s a lot of revenue for an industry that hangs its hat on reasonable prices that are often well below market-standards.

One company doing more than its fair share to spur the success of this sector is Hostelworld, the leading hostel-focused online booking platform. In fact, their new travel report found that recent travelers who went on extended trips of three weeks or more, visiting multiple destinations, over four in five (81%) chose to stay in hostels.

Exemplifying this burgeoning sector popularity, Hostelworld recently showcased its longevity by  celebrating its 20th year anniversary in epic form this summer, having thrown 20 parties over 20 days in 20 countries worldwide. The company’s “20 Years Young” parties as they were coined were hosted in all corners of the globe—from San Diego, Marrakech, Paris, Tokyo and beyond, ultimately coming to a wrap in London. The parties, with each themed around a particular year among the last twenty, lit up social media thanks to venues that were kitted out with party props as well as the bevy of travel influencers who hosted games and activities with much fanfare. This included a collective of Instagram Live streams said to have helped bring guests together in a way only the true hostel experience can.

If you need more convincing about how grand Hostelworld’s “20 Years Young” party tour was, just read the schedule below to appreciate how awe-inspiring this celebration was.

“The hostels for each of our events had been carefully selected to provide guests with the best possible experience, as we know today’s travelers expect far more than just a bed for the night from their accommodation,” noted a Hostelworld spokesperson. “As well as being perfectly located to explore, party guests were greeted by fabulous amenities like a cinema room in Mexico, a Muay Thai boxing ring in Thailand, and morning yoga in Indonesia.”

According to research by Hostelworld, it seems meeting and commiserating with people from all over the world is of escalating importance to American travelers, ranking “social space as the most important consideration when choosing where to stay,” which is certainly an area where hostels excel. “Another factor helping spur category growth is the importance of free activities that hostels often offer their guests,” the company spokesperson said.

Keeping the celebration going, Hostelworld continues to offer killer deals and free activities that help travelers make lasting memories. For example, USA Hostels Ocean Beach in San Diego offers visitors free shuttles to La Jolla and Tijuana, in addition to relaxing yoga classes and social barbeques.

So if you have that itch to get out of Dodge this fall, holiday or beyond and are looking to save a buck or two in the process—and meet and mingle with some interesting folks along the way—give a hostel stay a go. It just might result in the most memorable adventure of your lifetime.
