The global youth hostel market is expected to grow from $ 364.32 billion in 2021 to $ 451.99 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.1%. The growth is mainly due to companies resuming operations and adjusting to the new normal while recovering from the impact of COVID-19, which previously led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, the remote work and closure of business activities which resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $ 840.27 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 16.8%.

The hostel market includes the sale of hostels and related services. A hostel can be described as a kind of budget shared accommodation with a common space.

Hostels usually have dormitory-style rooms for travelers, but private rooms and hotel-style facilities are also available these days. Hostels prefer to focus on creating a sociable atmosphere and are much cheaper than a hotel.

The main types of homes are students, workers and others. A student hostel is a structure used by educational institutions to house their registered students.

The different booking methods involve online bookings, direct bookings, others and the price of the services includes economy, mid-range and luxury.

The boom in solo travel is a key factor in the growth of the hostel market. Due to their low cost, value for money, experience-based accommodation, convenient locations, and opportunities to meet other travelers, solo travelers opt for hostels.

For example, according to a study conducted by Hostelworld in 2019, three-quarters (75%) of women and two-thirds (67%) of men have started or plan to go on a solo adventure across the world. In the United States, women make 45% more hostel trips than men.

Additionally, 20% of solo travel bookings were made by American women, followed by Germany (11%), UK (10%) and Australia (8%). The hostel industry has seen strong growth thanks to solo travelers looking to spend more money on longer trips and see the world as much as possible.

The introduction of hybrid hostels is a key trend in the hostel market. To satisfy young urban business travelers, hybrid hostels combine the affordability and sociability of dormitory accommodation with the high-end amenities of traditional hotels.

For example, the Stay Hybrid Hostel is located in the center of Thessaloniki, near the districts of Ladadika and Valaoritou. Each room at the Stay Hybrid Hostel is air conditioned, with exclusive musical references.

They offer personal bedrooms with personal amenities, tables for the beds, a small desk, a wardrobe and a flat screen TV.

Common misconceptions are the main factor limiting the hostel market. There are many misconceptions about hostels around the world that often lead people to create a negative opinion of them.

Usually people assume hostels are for young people only, some think hostels are not hygienic and unsafe. In addition, people who had a bad hostel experience generalized the notion to all hostels and refrain from using them.

Such misconceptions limit the growth of the youth hostel market.
