Travellers don't usually expect to find games rooms, rooftop bars, traditional cooking classes or free walking tours in budget accommodation costing as little as £2.70 per night – but those are some of the perks offered by this year's best hostels around the world.
Now in its 17th year, Hostelworld.com's annual awards, the Hoscars – like the Oscars for hostels – rates budget properties around the globe, judging them on value for money, location, atmosphere, facilities, security, character and cleanliness. Judges also take into account reviews from the website's 1.1million customers.
