Looking for somewhere new, stylish and cheap to stay? The latest sign ups at HostelBookers, the budget accommodation specialist, includes brand new hostels in Europe’s most vibrant capitals. Guests can book their stay in London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Helsinki at the lowest prices.

Safestay, close to Elephant & Castle underground station, sets a new benchmark in stylish and affordable  London hostels in an increasingly lively part of the capital. Designed by Black Box Interiors, the original architectural features of the Grade II listed-building have been preserved and integrated into the modern design of the interior. Set to appeal to a broad community of guests; from independent travellers and backpackers, to school groups, value-conscious business people and families, there are private twin rooms with TVs as well as 4, 6 and 8-bed rooms available. Most of which have en-suite facilities.

The spanking new Loft Budget Hotel & Hostel is the first 5-star boutique hostel in the heart of Paris. The Belleville neighbourhood, famous for its outdoor market and scenic park, boasts funky restaurants, bars and clubs all nearby. Guests will love the fresh colourful design of all the rooms, some even with private balconies which look onto an outdoor patio where guests can relax and unwind in the sun after a full day of exploring Paris.

The ONE80° Hostel is located in Alexanderplatz. It’s just a few minutes’ walk to the famous television tower and close to Berlin's major attractions such as Museum Island, Brandenburg Gate and the legendary shopping mile Friedrichstraße. With a design ethos that's more 'hip hotel' than 'hostel', they have created lux spaces that are stylish and social, environmentally-responsible and exceptionally good value. Guests can choose from bunk or twin bedrooms, on mixed or female-only floors. The hostel has an in-house bar, restaurant and club with a full schedule of events - from resident DJs to regular social events. Stunning feature furniture pieces add to the urban-glam vibe, as does the bold collection of works by local artists.

Hostelle is the first and only all-female hostel in Amsterdam. Hostelle was started with the idea to provide a safe and fun place for women who are travelling to the Netherlands capital. It offers themed double private rooms as well as a 2, 4, 6, and 8 bed dorm rooms. Hostelle is located near the Amsterdam Arena, home of the world famous soccer club of Amsterdam, Ajax, and is only a 15-minute ride away from Central Station.

CheapSleep is a relaxed, affordable and contemporary hostel located in the historic Vallila district of Helsinki. With excellent connections to the city centre, airport, railway station and ferry terminals, combined with walking distance to Helsinki's bar district Kallio, this newly renovated hostel offers a complete package of price, location and style. A large common room is a key to what makes CheapSleep a fun, relaxed and social place to stay. The hostel has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area next to the common room, plus there's a supermarket on-site. They offer a mix of dorms and private double rooms.
