What Hostival Is Not:

  • 5-Star luxury accommodation
  • A romantic getaway for couples
  • It is not for the faint-hearted and only people serious about having fun should visit

What Hostival Is:

  • Temporary overflow festival accommodation; ie: it's only there for a few weeks so it is basic - a bed, shower and toilet. What else would you need?
  • Manageable on the pocket, ESPECIALLY if you are booking late
  • A fantastic place to meet people from all over the world partying at the same festival as you
