Conclusion to the Best Party Hostels in Europe

Europe easily beats pretty much every continent when it comes to people who know how to party. Maybe it’s being the home of Western civilisation, maybe it’s because Europeans have had literal millennia to practice drinking beer, wine and vodka – we don’t know, but man, do they do it well!

Sound like fun? Luckily for you, Europe also has a long tradition of backpacking too. That means hostels – and lots of them. Even in regular hostels, you’ll find that good-times vibe, but in Europe’s best party hostels it can be INSANE!

If you want our opinion, we’d say start with our top pick for THE very best party hostel in Europe. That’d be the awesome Gspot Party Hostel Lisbon. Lisbon is an awesome city and this hostel turns up the party vibes to 11 to match the vibrant Portuguese capital.

So if you’re heading to Europe to party: prepare yourselves for madness!
