Check out these incredible floating hostels that will be sure to give you some serious wanderlust.
Selina BocasWhere: Bocas del Toro, Panama. Why: Because this will be the closest you can get to living the true Finding Nemo dream. This hostel is literally floating on the water, meaning that you can wake up and dive into the sea. Have a drink in the bar, then dive into the sea. Have a nap in a hammock and bam – into the sea. It also helps that Bocas del Toro is a riot of colourful, clapboard-style Caribbean houses with some of the most beautiful beaches around.
Kadir’s Tree HouseWhere: Olympos, Turkey.

ArkaBarka Floating HostelWhere: Belgrade, Serbia. Why: Because here you’ll get a city break in the most relaxing and tranquil way possible – this hostel sits on the River Danube and is a short walk into Belgrade’s city centre. You’ll also love the architecture, which seamlessly blends into the surrounding wooded landscape.
Jumbo StayWhere: Stockholm, Sweden. Why: BECAUSE IT’S IN AN AEROPLANE! Sorry, we got a bit overexcited there, but can you blame us? This hostel is in an actual Boeing 747-200 Jumbo Jet. Who doesn’t want to spend their holiday pretending they’re an astronaut?
The Red Boat MalaranWhere: Stockholm, Sweden. Why: Because it’s about as authentically nautical as you can get. It’s built on two 100-year-old boats, docked where Lake Malaren and the Baltic Sea meet. Not only is the hostel itself oozing with history, but you also get an incredible view of the city.
