Not every hostel has hostel art, and a good hostel doesn’t even need it to be remembered. But, there are some hostels that are able to take their great service even further by providing a spectacular atmosphere with their decor and art (think Soul Kitchen Jr.).
In western China, Hostelworld hooked Pat and I up with a stay at the White Birch International Youth Hostel in Urumqi. I know… not a place many of you reading this are ever planning to visit, but for those adventurous souls who are, then I give it a thumbs up. Not only was our stay comfortable, our host both happy and able to speak English, but it was also covered in some fantastic hostel art.
For a part of the world that doesn’t have much in the way of hostels, I was thoroughly impressed with my stay and with the service. When it comes to hostel art, the communal room would be a definite contender for my favorite… but what about you?
Where have you found your favorite hostel art? Share it in the comments. Feel free to link up to a blog post you wrote, a photo on Flickr, or even the hostel listing on Hostelworld to help prove your point.
I just might be making a follow-up post of my favorites, and yours might get credited!
