    Hostelworld named Combo Venezia in Venice as the top European spot for those wanting some pics for their grid with backpackers giving it the most ‘likes’. It was the only European hostel to feature on the worldwide top ten list, and it sounds pretty special.

    Just fifteen minutes from St Mark’s Square and the party scene, it’s also a bargain £40 a night. It boasts two ancient cloisters, a library and study room, as well as a café and bar. Plus, there’s free WiFi, walking tours, and tea and coffee, and the rooms have complimentary towels and toiletries. There are private rooms, apartments, female-only dorms and mixed dorms so you can take your pick depending on the getaway.

    So which hostels made the Hostelworld top ten list?

    Number one was 248 Street Hostel in Chiang Mai, Thailand with a rooftop pool, bar and mountain views. It’s right next to Wat Lokmolee and Chhang Phuak Street Food market, meaning tasty and inexpensive dinners on your doorstep, and is just 500 meters from the Old Town Centre.
