Gone are the days where the thought of hostels evoked images of gloomy spaces where danger lurked in every corner.

With 32 rooms, an expansive lounge area, a bar and even workstations with computers -- this friendly hostel makes sure that guests interact and perhaps even find traveling partners to continue their journeys with. Large smiley faces incorporated into the furniture add a childlike element to the design that radiates positivity and warmth.
