Last Minute Valentine’s Day Getaways That Won’t Break Your Heart Or Your Bank

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, there’s no better time to surprise your significant other by sweeping them off their feet on a romantic getaway.

Hostelworld, the global online hostel-focussed booking platform, has handpicked private rooms in some of Europe’s most romantic cities, where you can whisk away your loved one without breaking the bank.

Whether it be Paris, Venice, Budapest, Amsterdam or Copenhagen, travellers can discover the crème de la crème of hostels that are sure to pull on those heartstrings while celebrating the most romantic date in the year.

Paris, France

During a trip to the city of love, we recommend staying at Le Regent Montmartre by Hiphophostels. For just £86.79 a night, which includes a deluxe double bed private, this hotel allows you to enjoy affordable luxury with your beau in the city of romance. 

When you finally want to escape your love bubble, the best date spots are at your fingertips with the Moulin Rouge and Pigalle a stone’s throw away. After a day of exploring, escape to your chamber and enjoy some French champagne in the soft sunlight of your ensuite balcony. The view is famed for its parallel view of the Sacré Coeur, and see if you can spot any mimes while people-watching beneath you.

We also recommend the Generator Paris which offers a deluxe double bed private room for £150.42.

Rome, Italy

When in Rome, we recommend staying at Generator Rome, a stunning 19th century building nestled amongst the cobbled streets of the centre. For just £64.14 for a deluxe double bed private room, the hotel sits in the idyllic location of the city’s famed seven hills, offering the perfect spot to watch the sunset with your partner. The Generator is also situated right across the street from the Mercado dell’ Esquilino, a food market showcasing the wide variety of Italy’s food, where you can grab some fresh local produce for a couples cooking session that evening. The property is also a 5-minute walk from the incredible Colosseum Amphitheatre.

We also recommend the Rome Hello Hostel which offers a pristine deluxe double bed private room for £121.93 per night. Rome Hello has a great modern vibe, with a funky outdoor area to relax in after a day of exploring the city.

Venice, Italy

Venice is a beautiful destination and offers both an incredible experience and cheap accommodation; what more could you want?

We recommend staying in the Anda Venice, which at £84.94 for a double bed private room is definitely a bargain. For those that lust after industrial chic, this hostel is the one for you and your partner. The accommodation is a stone’s throw away from the airport, which means there’s no time to waste on your romantic getaway as soon as your feet touch Italian soil. After the pair of you have soaked up the rich romance the city has to offer, escape the crowds into the oasis of this hostel’s urban garden.

We also recommend staying at the AO Hostel Venezia Mestre 2, which charges just £46.07 for a private double bedroom.

Budapest, Hungary

Das Nest Hostel is perfect for those seeking a bohemian paradise. Cocooned in a rooftop loft apartment, it truly is a cosy nest to relax and rejuvenate with your significant other. Spend your energy visiting the local bars, restaurants, life artists and smaller festivals in Hungary to help make your stay unforgettable and unique for yourself and your partner. Stay at Das Nest in a double private bedroom for just £41.62 per night.

We also recommend staying at the Maverick Hostel and Ensuites, which is the best bargain of them all at just £37.91 for a deluxe double private bedroom.

Barcelona, Spain

Live like locals at the Casa Gràcia Barcelona Hostel. A boutique mansion that boasts an outdoor terrace, there’s no chance of becoming bored here. From their daily tapas tours, foodie nights and yoga classes, you and your significant other can join in on the fun. Or if you’re keen to meet other couples, you can always flop onto a floor cushion in the No Mas Te chill-out lounge and swap meet-cutes with your neighbours. Stay here in a superior double bed private room for £127.40.

We also recommend staying at the Yeah Hostel, which offers a deluxe double private bedroom for £101.60 per night.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The best way to explore Amsterdam is cycling along dreamy canals with your partner, and potentially getting lost along the way. Luckily for you, the Generator Amsterdam provides Vanmoof bikes for rental. Park your bike at the shopping haven around De Pijp or just kick back by the canal and toast your relationship with a few cold Dutch beers. If your partner is an animal-lover, you can woo them over by booking this accommodation that was once a zoological university building. Stay here in a deluxe double private bedroom for £160.53.

We also recommend the CityHub Amsterdam, which offers a deluxe double private bedroom with app-controlled lighting for £150.42. 

Copenhagen, Denmark

When visiting the world’s happiest city, the Urban House Copenhagen by Meininger is a great place to stay. This hostel is famed for being activity-driven, offering bike tours, group runs and yoga classes to spice up any relationship. Sound a bit too energetic? Get some R&R in the quiet room or snuggle up watching a movie in the mini cinema. Oozing Scandi style, this accommodation may inspire you to do some home renovation once you’re back on UK soil. For just £82.01 for a twin double private room, the Urban House is a bargain. 

We also recommend staying at the Generator Copenhagen which charges £132.75 per night for a deluxe double private bedroom.

Wherever you spend your Valentine’s Day, we hope you have a good one!
