Hoscars 2015: ranking best hostels around the world

Hostelworld.com has now been organizing the Hoscars (Hostelworld.com Customer Annual Ratings), which award the world’s best hostels, for 13 years. Though over half of the award-winning hostels in 2015 are located in Europe, prizes were awarded to best places to stay all around the world.

Entirely based on customer feedback, Hoscars establish a more realistic ranking of the best hostels in the world. The winning hostels are classified by country, continent, and popularity or according to specific criteria: value for money, atmosphere, staff, cleanliness, facilities, location and safety.
