This a guest post from one of my best friends whom I met whilst partying in Israel. He is a true traveler in every sense of the word and has seduced, tasted, and experienced a girl from nearly every country on earth. Having seen him seduce random girls on the street in a matter of minutes, he is perhaps the closest thing Europe has to its own Tucker Max. Below he reviews the top 5 wildest party hostels.
Wombats hostel is our choice for Berlin’s ultimate party hostels and being located in the most liberal city on earth, it’s not hard to see why. This is a place where anything and everything goes – including some of the most hardcore partying you’ll ever experience.
I first got interested in teaching English overseas when I got sick of my 9-5 job in Australia, and wanted something more from life. I didn’t want to waste away behind a desk doing stuff which didn’t feel meaningful at all. I did some research and found a good, cheap online TEFL school.

After that I set off into the Middle East, with my first stop being Egypt. Although Egypt had some amazing ancient artifacts, Cairo was the ugliest, most stressful city I had (and still now 3 years later) ever been to. The only nice part of the city were the pyramids. Overall it is worth going to Egypt and you can check out the cheap but good quality accommodation options for Egypt here (check out the ratings on the left)

After Egypt I crossed the port to Jordan – which was slightly nicer looking but had truly amazing people – in fact the people I met there and Syria I have considered the most warmest unbelievably selfless people I have ever met. If you are in the region I truly recommend visiting Petra – it’s one of the most amazing, most preserved Ancient Cities that exist – it’s not just the
photo below – it’s much more – it really is an entire city still preserved (by the way, I recommend keeping away from a Hostel called Valentine’s Inn – the owners are slightly/completely insane).

It is also in Jordan (in the capital Amman) where I stayed for a month and taught English to Palestinian and Iraqi refugee children (who had to leave their homes and families in Iraq due to the American military’s invasion and later occupation for oil). It was amazing how well behaved and eager to learn these kids were – despite having lost so much.
After that I traveled through Syria, Israel, and beautiful Turkey – Istanbul – which is still my favourite city (along with Belgrade). It’s quiet easy to get a job in Istanbul as a native English speaker – there are many language schools. Make sure you have your copy of your TEFL certificate and don’t go for the first offer, see which one pays best – know that the schools charge the students a small fortune to have lessons with you (a native English speaker “wow”) – so make sure you are getting your fair share of it. The schools will also help you get your visa for working.

After you’ve spent the first few nights hooking up and drinking yourself into a stupor at the party hostel bar, wonder over to the nearby clubs for some even more intense partying. Nice and close so you can crawl back without too much effort if need be.
From the welcome drink you get the moment you check in to Wombats hostel to the all night partying at the hostel and at the nearby clubs, you’ll leave this ultimate party hostel having partied your arse off.
The hostels below can be thought of as a playground where the male and female energies dance wildly into the night:
This place should be renamed XXX Hostel. Located right near Golden Sands on the Black Sea Coast, this budget hostel was easily one of the most fun and welcoming places I’ve been to.
Owned by a young Italian guy, the atmosphere here can be defined simply as insane fun. If you don’t find yourself at one of the steaming hot foam parties, it is probably because you are too busy having a wild night on the nearby beach.
My initial plan to stay a few days ended up being 3 weeks at this place – and I then ended up staying on to work at the place for another 2 months!!
Located in Bulgaria, its also a cheap, ideal option for backpackers on a serious budget, with 1 euro = 2 levas.
