Why is it solo female friendly?

Backstay is such a sociable hostel and just makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. The staff are a young team and go out of their way to provide you with a memorable stay.

Why we love it!

Each week the hostel hosts an event such as live music and an after party in the bar so you don’t even have to go out to make new friends. They say that “every traveller is a friend” – and we agree 🙂 Backstay Hostel has also been awarded a 5 star hostel by Hostel Geeks.
