I have to add Singer 109 to the best hostels of Berlin. It was truly the best experience I’ve had. Nice and easygoing people, amazing light, large rooms (private bathroom), great bar downstairs and amazing breakfast.

Wow! I’ve never been more inspired to plan a trip to…everywhere. Thanks, eurocheapo.

Nice list! hopefully I can take advantage of one of the super cheapo’s on my upcoming trip!

Congrats on the 9 years. That is awesome!!

thank you! this is SO very handy!

Michael says:

We’re going to take a close look at this list. What a great resource – and you guys are the perfect ones to do it!

Great list! Agree on Martin`s hotel in Bruges for having an excellent location. I`ve stayed there in the past on a trip in Bruges: http://www.isabellestravelguide.com/bruges-tourist-information.html

Olivier says:

As far as I see, this list is a bit poor…. for ex. in Berlin : room for 2, shower/toilets outside but very clean = less than 30 euros in Berlin city hotel (located on the subway ring); another one : 30 euro as well, for a room+shower+toilets+free wifi, in the funkturm hotel (near ICC)…. like this in 3 days you save one night !

So, your “super cheapo” ones from 51$ = 41 euro are not that super cheapo !

Marsha says:

would like some hotels in Rome and the Amalfi Coast

Tomás Mexico says:

We would like som hotels en Lisboa Portugal

Connie says:

Going to Dublin Ireland , to take my daughter to school, leaving the end of August, returning after Labor Day. Not interested in a tour group. Since she will be staying for 4 years and I will be returning home alone, we would like to enjoy this trip alone. Open minded. Any suggsstions! We can stay between 7-10 days.

Jim says:

I need to find some hotel in Copenhagen for 2 nights in May next year….any suggestions
