Okay, let’s be frank. You may get the chills when hearing the word “hostel” – or this might be sweet music to your ears. Either way, we are completely changing the hostel-game with this one and gone beyond the basics here. BOOK1 Design Hostel puts all your hostel-prejudices to shame. Simply put. So, whether you are a backpacker newbie or hostel pro – this one should be added to your travel-bucket-list!
BOOK1 is made to be a moment maker. It is a unique design hostel set in the best part of Aarhus, where we’ve combined the luxury and comfort of a hotel (our expertise) and the edgy buzzing vibe and budget of a hostel. So, if you’re looking for a cool extraordinary luxury experience, something a little different, but for a fraction of the price - then this is your calling. We’ve even thrown in a humongous portion cool design for you - no extra charge!
Besides having the luxurious comfort and cool vibe, the design is what sets BOOK1 apart. Think designer furniture, funky elements, and different cool (and surprising) art installations. We’ve even installed an airstream bar in the middle of it all - packed with really good stuff on the shelves.
And here’s one for the story-seekers. Before we turned it into a design hostel, BOOK1 used to be the main library in Aarhus. And we sure love storytelling! So, the many of the architectural elements from the library are incorporated in the design. All around you find original interior like the lamps, the round staircase, and the large wooden doors. Even the name of the hostel refers to all the books stashed side-by-side along with the fact that this is our very first design hostel. And when it comes to our line-up of rooms, cocooning is the word here. Social, but with a luxury of total privacy with smart features, light sensors, and dark hallways. They range in size and budget from shared Pod Dorms to Private Rooms, and upscale Hostel Suites. Fun fact: our Pod Dorms are designed to resemble open bookshelves to sleep in… in queen-sized beds!
Now, if we haven’t gotten your attention yet, then how about 14 fun minigolf lanes spread all around the hostel? The vibe at BOOK1 is fun, playful, and vibrant. There’s always something happening. It is the pulse of Aarhus, so you can be sure that there are both locals, travellers, and students to mingle with.
To sum it up: BOOK1 is all about good times and good night sleeps. Travel-addiction is the only side-effect we've seen so far. So, forget those backpacker horror-stories and make this your next destination – or just come visit from around the corner. Cause everyone is welcome here!
