Top tips for finding Fort Lauderdale hostel deals

  • If you’re a thrifty traveler taking a vacation in Fort Lauderdale, booking a hostel is a great way to see the sights without the high costs that sometimes come with booking accommodations in local hotels, resorts, and vacation homes. Another benefit of booking a hostel in Fort Lauderdale includes its ready access to generally hostel-specific amenities, like shared kitchens where you can prepare your own meals and spacious common areas where you can meet other travelers.
  • When you’re searching for hostels in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll have two main areas in the city to choose from: close to the beach or near downtown. Choosing a hostel that’s close to the beach will give you quicker access to local surf and swimming spots, while choosing a hostel in downtown Fort Lauderdale will put you a few steps away from plentiful shopping areas, restaurants, bars, public transportation options, and the city’s main attractions, including the Museum of Discovery and Science and the NSU Art Museum.
  • If you’re traveling to Fort Lauderdale on your own and you’re planning to meet up with other travelers, choosing the right hostel is essential.
