Want to contribute to our blog?


We’re looking for writers who can weave a little wanderlust magic with their words and wow us and your fellow backpackers with your travel experiences. If your heart is in your backpack, your head is in a faraway land, and you can write fluently in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, or Italian, we would love to hear from you!


How do I pitch myself?

All we ask for is a response to the timeless backpacker questions shared in hostel dorms and common rooms across the globe. ‘Where are you from? Where have you been? Where are you going?’ We will need to see your writing, so include links to your blog, published work, or attach some samples. There’s no need to pitch article ideas as we will usually share briefs specific to your experience and our content needs.     

Contact us at: contribute@hostelworld.com and we will aim to get back to you within 30 days. The length and fee for the article will be confirmed upon commission. If you have any other content or social media inquiries, please share as much detail as you can.
