It’s no secret that female travellers are dominating the travel scene right now, with solo holidays continuing to rise. While we’re all for escaping for a few days on an adventure alone, sometimes we just need to grab a few of our girlfriends and jet off to a new city for a long weekend of fun, relaxation and catching up with our favourite people.

With this in mind, we spoke to our friends at Hostelworld to bring you the best women’s hostels in Europe – the ones that offer female-only dorms so you can have your own private space with your girls (and without the price tag!).

While these may be hostels, some of them come with seriously luxurious interiors and experiences, so don’t be surprised if they leave you planning another girls’ holiday immediately after returning home.

Here are the best hostels for a girls-only getaway….
