When you're backpacking in Europe, it's almost foolish not to experience one of the region's many electronic dance music festivals. The genre's overseas roots are deep and rich, celebrated at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Balaton Sound and more—the list is endless.
And while it can be tough to choose which events to attend, what's even more difficult is finding affordable, comfortable, quality lodging along the way. That's where St Christopher's comes in.
A staple of European backpacking culture, St Christopher's Inn operates 20 excellent youth hostels in the most popular cities across the U.K. and Europe. You can count on the company for clean and reliable accommodations in London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Barcelona, among other major cities, where they're established as the go-to party destination hostel chain.
