Hostelworld reveals the most Wish-Listed hostels in the world

29 July 2020: Our Wombat’s City Hostels in Vienna (Naschmarkt) and London are two of the most desired hostels to visit in the world, according to online booking platform, Hostelworld.

Whilst they’ve been stuck at home backpackers have eagerly been searching and saving hostels to their wish-lists for future trips. Representing London and Vienna, Wombat’s was ranked both the 3rd and 6th most Wish-Listed hostel in the world by Hostelworld’s customers as part of a survey carried out over the last three months.

Backpackers are eager to reclaim their passion for travel, and a recent poll has revealed that they will be among the first to do so as 48% plan to travel in the first 60 days after restrictions ease1. Daring to brave the new normal, 7 in 10 are planning on travelling internationally as soon as they can.

The ranking reveals the most desirable destinations for young hostel-travellers, and can be found here.
