Cheap Summer Getaway Ideas from HostelBookers
Every year, it seems like I get to August and realize that I haven’t traveled nearly as much as I’d have liked to. And by then, everything’s too expensive and I’m stuck with a day trip to Foxwoods, where I will end up sandwiched between two toothless individuals at the Blackjack table.
Don’t let this happen to you this year!
HostelBookers recently announced their Summer of Love sale. Hostel travel just got a whole lot cheaper.
The summer accommodation deals on offer cover 28 top destinations worldwide. With a vast range of hostels on board offering nights at discounted prices, customers can save at least 20% off the normal rate!
Here are some destination ideas for a cheap summer getaway:
Looking for a cultural summer getaway? Berlin is the place to be for all that is hip this very minute, from fashion to music to nightlife. In a city this big — 10 times the size of Paris! — you can find your perfect scene. If you’re lucky, perhaps your hostel in Berlin will have a view like the one above.
How I would love to be in Paris in the summer! Picnics in Jardin Luxembourg, ice cream at Berthillon, nights out in the Bastille area, sitting and watching the world go by on the grass in front of Sacre-Coeur…Paris is magical year-round.
Yes, Paris can be expensive, but if you stay in a Paris hostel, the largest part of your budget will be cut down dramatically!

I may love Venice in the winter, but summer is when the island of Lido comes to life. Leave your Venice hostel in the morning and hop on a vaporetto, or public transit boat, and you’ll soon be sunning yourself on Venice’s hottest party beach, rubbing elbows with the rich and famous.
Hate the heat? Throw on a scarf and head down under! Sydney may be more popular for backpackers, but Melbourne is smaller, arguably friendlier, with incredible graffiti that dots the city and a great ethnic dining scene. With great deals on Melbourne hostels, this is an affordable Australian jaunt!
To take advantage of this offer, customers need to place a booking by 31st August 2010 and travel completed by the 30th of September**.
