It is not a secret anymore travelling can enrich your life on so many levels and Hostelgeeks is here to tell you why.
Whether you love to explore the dark, narrowed streets of Marrakesh, to taste the best sushi in Tokyo with the help of your new Couchsurfing buddy, or simply love to volunteer at an animal farm somewhere in Africa.
The annoying part of travelling through Europe?
However, have you ever tried to find the best gelato in Rome just by walking around? Especially in these big, well-visited cities it is unfortunately very likely to end up in a tourist spot, paying way too much for something you would/ could have enjoyed better at a different place – just if you would have known better.
This is why most people love to meet an old friend in the destination, meet someone from Couchsurfing, or try to get local recommendations before travelling.
We at Hostelgeeks tried to go the other way. We do not want to take the exploring part from you – but we love to share with you our top secret tips for many destinations around Europe and the world.
All tips are contributed by locals, our 5 Star Hostel, and expats who actually lived in the city and enjoyed its beauty longer than just a few days.
Therefore, we are proud to present you our geeky guides are 100% authentic and local – by friends for friends!
Hidden gems all over Europe – the Geeky Guide
I am sure you will do your research when you travel to Paris for instance. You want to visit Eifel Tower, enter the Louvre, and get lost in Montmartre, right?! There is no point for us telling you that this is indeed something worth it to do. Go for it, do it, enjoy it! But then there comes the part you want to discover something unique, right?
We keep it simple for you! We show you 5 unique and secret tips with every geeky guide. And sometimes we cannot resist, and have to give you another geeky recommendation or two.
We always try to give great recommendations on places, activities, and food locals enjoy, and are different from other travel guides. This can be a small, hidden café, some special spot like a beautiful view to the city skyline, or where to get some super delicious local food (for example the most incredible Pizza in Rome) for a local price.
