5 Beautiful Hostels You Can Use As Home Pegs

These spaces found all over the world will inspire you to travel and redecorate your home


Many of us travel to de-stress, to learn something new, and to explore new places. It has become such a reward that nothing beats the feeling of buying tickets, finalizing itineraries, and booking accommodations.

With the rise of Airbnbs and hostels, there are different establishments found all over the world that showcase a variety of styles—from hipster haunts to vintage homes—name it and you can search for it. If looking into a country's architecture and style is on top of your to-do list, we've rounded up five hostels that you can check out. These places are so pretty and well-decorated that you can use each as design pegs, too!

Caveland, Santorini, Greece

Unique and equally beautiful, this hostel is nestled inside eight caves and an old, historic apartment. What's not to love about it? It brings you closer to nature and it's a five-minute drive from the scenic Fira Island. The cave rooms have bunk beds and en-suite bathrooms to ensure comfort. Though sparsely decorated, it has a bohemian vintage feel accentuated by framed printed textiles and intricately decorated furniture.

Get the look of Caveland: Start by mixing and matching prints and patterns in your soft furnishings. To achieve the shabby chic style, you can also opt to have vintage decor and furniture or have a couple of distressed must-haves. Planning to distress your own chair or table?

Lub d, Silom, Thailand

Located in one of Bangkok's more urban areas, Lub d Silom has a utilitarian feel that still manages to be welcoming and comfortable. The bunk beds may look too plain and industrial, but the bright pops of color and selected furniture keep it from being too stiff.

Get the look of Lubd: Begin by bringing in pops of color that can change the overall look and feel of your space. You can inject hues through decor, pillows, and accessories. If you think your room is too bare, invest in a colorful accent armchair or printed throw pillows for an instant pick-me-up.

Generator Berlin Mitte, Berlin, Germany

Traveling with friends? You'd instantly feel at home when you book a stay in any Generator hostel. The Berlin-Mitte is a must-visit in Berlin, with its laid-back ambiance and well-thought-out decor. Aside from having stylish rooms, it also boasts of charming common areas that visitors would love.

Get the look of the Berlin-Mitte: Achieve the farmhouse-meets-hipster look by incorporating wooden elements and colorful pieces into your home's style. Pair sleek and streamlined pieces with comfy sofas and pillows to achieve just the right balance.

MET A Space Pod, Boat Quay, Singapore

Do you love science-fiction stories, techy advancements, and concept hotels? Meet all of these requirements when you stay at MET A Space Pod! The space-inspired furnishings will surely bring you to the future and let you enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience. Instead of common beds, the place features modern pods that give you extra privacy and comfort.

Get the look of MET A Space Pod: Start small by bringing in digital-inspired decor and accessories. Decorate your room with quirky wall art and string lights. If you're decorating a kiddie room, consider having a customized bed that resembles a spaceship or an actual pod for an interesting touch.

Makuto Guesthouse, Granada, Spain

The exposed beams and stone walls in this hostel pay tribute to Spanish culture and design, while intricate patterns, bold colors, and rich textures remind you of the nearby Arab baths and Moorish Palace.

Get the look of the Makuto Guesthouse: For an easy Andalusian-inspired makeover, start by painting your walls in a more neutral shade and investing in quality linen or wooden furniture. Bring in large potted plants to add a refreshing touch and to complete the look.

As an alternative, you may also want to have an accent wall featuring a bold hue. Temper it with neutral-colored furnishings, wooden decor, and mini potted plants.
