Top 20 hostels in the world for food

Influential food blog The Daily Meal has curated a list of the world’s best hostels in an unexpected category: their food offerings.

In their list of top 20 food hostels, standard fare like burgers and chicken nuggets are replaced with regional specialities like maple whiskey mousse in Vermont, organic oatmeal and fruits in San Francisco, and an assortment of Moroccan breads and locally harvested honeys in Marrakech.

The hostel with the best food in the world meanwhile, can apparently be found in Granada, Spain, where food is central to the stay. When backpackers arrive at the Oasis Hostel, for instance, they’re greeted with a complmentary drink. Breakfast is free, as are tapas tours that take guests on guided tours of the best bars in the city.

Esencia Nativa hostel in El Salvador was also given nods for welcoming guests with fresh fruit smoothies and for its onsite restaurant that overlooks that ocean and serves everything from typical Salvadorian breakfasts and freshly caught seafood to homemade pizzas and veggie burgers with homemade hummus.
