The Best Hostel in the World: Revealed
Ever wondered what the greatest hostel in the world is? Well, it turns out it’s in Scotland…
In a vote by customers of the Hostelling International (a large hostel chain with locations in over 90 countries), Lerwick Hostel in the Shetland Isles, Scotland has been voted as the best hostel in the world for 2011.
Marcus Sherifi goes on to say:
Customers said they loved Lerwick hostel’s location and the fact that it was set in a beautiful, grand mansion house with breathtaking views.
A surprise indeed! While it seems that while the best overall hostel is found in Scotland, the ‘most comfortable’ hostel was voted as being the Utano Youth Hostel in Kyoto, Japan, Martha’s Vineyard in the USA was given the award of being the friendliest.
