Most people don’t think of luxury when they think of hostels. Generally speaking, hostels tend to be simple and only offer the very basics. There is a growing trend in Europe, however, where ordinary hostels are going from rustic to glamorous. You can now find some luxurious hostels throughout Europe, ideal for the backpacker more interested in sleeping well than saving money.
