It’s a well-known fact that we live in a materialistic world and Valentine’s Day, which is just around the corner, is another excuse for people to go out shopping and overspend “in the name of love”.
Now I’ve got nothing against Valentine’s Day and sure I want to express my love for my better half every chance I get – but whether it’s jewelry, flowers or even dinner at a nice restaurant, the cost rapidly adds up which completely goes against the objectives of Frugal February. We’re here to eliminate unnecessary spending, not promote it!
So here’s a chance for the traveling couples out there to win a FREE Valentine’s Hostel Stay courtesy of HostelBookers. All you need to do is upload a fun couple shot – see below for further details.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, HostelBookers unveils its best budget accommodation options for couples, many of which are found in romantic cities in Europe. Consisting of charming guesthouses, boutique hostels and intimate B&Bs with romantic room designs, they are a budget friendly alternative to the hotel this Valentine’s Day. Here are 3 European favourites:
Rooms Deluxe Hostel in Valenica offers 28 beautifully themed ensuite rooms, each one designed and decorated by a different artist. Think four-posted beds, Buddhist temples and flamenco suites. You’ll also find free internet, WiFi, magnetic keycards, housekeeping and a private parking spot at your personal disposal. A perfect getaway in Valencia.
Riad Les Jardins De Mouassine is one of the most romantic hostels in Marrakech. Every room is uniquely decorated but equally seductive with tiled en suites. Fatim-Zahra is on hand to ensure total relaxation with mud wraps, Moroccan or hot stone massages.

In addition, HostelBookers is offering one lucky couple a FREE Valentine’s hostel stay! Entrants simply need to upload their most FUN couple shot while travelling together to the HostelBookers Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning.
