That’s not a typo. So if you think traveling alone is too expensive or you’re afraid you’ll be bored if you go on a solo adventure, we’re here to prove you wrong! The best place to stay if you’re traveling solo or with a few friends is a hostel. Hostels are a revolving door of like-minded travelers who all share one passion: traveling. It’s a great place to meet new friends to explore the city with, grab a pint, or even continue traveling together. Here are 9 amazing hostels in Europe that are so cheap that you’ll have no excuses not to travel Europe. (Note: Prices are based on February 2017 search.)

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is one of Europe’s most budget-friendly cities, and you could easily explore the city for less than $20 a day. There are several hostels under $10 a night for a dorm bed: The cheapest we found was $4 a night but our top pick would be Casa de la Musica Hostel for $6 a night. Casa de la Musica is in walking distance to everything and only 8-minute walk (or stumble) home from the best ruin bars in Budapest.

Prague, Czech Republic

We have personally stayed at MSophie’s Hostel in Prague and for only $10 a night in a dorm, it is a total steal. Sophie’s Hostel has a great happy hour to enjoy before heading out. And there are tons of things to do in Prague; you could easily spend a week here.

Berlin, Germany

The coolest city in Germany (if not all of Europe) cannot be skipped. Stay at the Circus Hostel for just $18 a night in a dorm. Make some friends and make your own German-beer inspired pub crawl; after you’ve had your fill of beers pick up the local favorite late-night snack, currywurst. If you like clubs more than pubs, Berlin has you covered too. Check out the late night underground club scene—just try to be quiet when you finally turn back in for the night!

Cappadocia, Turkey

Sleep inside a cave hostel in Turkey. Yes, in a cave. The Dorm Cave by Travellers is one of the most unique hostels in the world, and it’s only $6 a night in a dorm with breakfast. Use the money you saved on accommodations and jump on a sunrise hot air balloon ride for the most epic views of Cappadocia; it’s totally worth the average price of $140.

Barcelona, Spain

Enjoy the Spanish lifestyle in Barcelona with $2 bottles of Spanish wine, chill on the beach, eat tasty paella, stay out late and sleep in late at Generator Hostel for only $12 a night. Generator hostel is located in the heart of Barcelona and within walking distance of some of the city’s best attractions. The city has a subway and good public transport, but the best way to explore Barcelona is by foot.

Paris, France

Paris has a reputation for being crazy expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. For only $17 per night, you can rest your head at the Arty Paris hostel. An affordable and centrally located place to stay will definitely help your budget trip to Paris. Another thing that will bust your budget is food in Paris, so try and avoid eating all meals out. Instead opt for a picnic in the park complete with French wine, fresh cheese, deli meats and a baguette for under $10.

Riga, Latvia 

Never heard of Riga or Latvia? Well, that’s another reason why it should be on your bucket list! Riga feels a bit like a smaller version of Prague, with a fraction of the tourists. The historic center is UNESCO World Heritage Site and Riga was the European Capital of Culture in 2014. The city itself is super affordable with $7 dorm rooms at Red Nose Hostel.

London, England

London and budget are two words that don’t always get along, but there are still cheap places to stay in this city. Big Ben and the London Eye are less than a mile away from PubLove The Steam Engine Hostel which has dorm rooms for just $11 per night. London is known for its pubs and you won’t have to go far to find one as there’s one right in the hostel!

Rome, Italy

Stay less than a mile away from the Vatican at Comics Guesthouse for $15 per night in a dorm. With a room this cheap you could easily spend less than $40 a day, complete with several espressos, gelato, pizza, pasta and few glasses of Italian wine.
