4. Eastern Comfort, Berlin

Climb aboard this hostelboat for a few nights on the river Spree. There are 25 cabins set over three decks, ranging from private doubles to six-bed dorms. For the ultra-frugal, you can bring your own tent and camp on deck.

The boat is moored close to the East Side Gallery, a stretch of the fallen Berlin Wall that has been painted with works by artists from all over the world.

The bobbing backpacker den is also close to Kreuzberg, the capital of cool’s most happening district.


5. Hedonisia, Hawaii

This hippy-esque hostel in a volcanic rainforest invites guests to stay in an array of tents set on platforms or in barns. If you’re feeling flush, you can even stay in a campervan hidden in a grove of native Ohi’a trees.

Hedonisia also offers one of the most scenic toilet experiences a backpacker is ever likely to enjoy, with its open-air eco-loo set in a private tropical garden.

There are also outdoor ‘pee gardens’ without toilets – apparently a number of tropical plants “love to be peed on”.
