Travelling solo as a woman

image preview

Being independent and discovering the world as a solo traveller is a matter of course for many women and enough reason to go travelling alone. The advantages of travelling without a travel companion are evident: For one, there’s the freedom to do anything you want and try things you’ve always wanted to try without having to compromise. What’s more, the sense of pride you get when you come home knowing you’ve done something entirely under your own steam is simply invaluable. Embark on your own unique journey and assert your independence! a&o is your ideal partner for affordable accommodation in many German and European cities – with the a&o best price guarantee of course!

Women & dorm rooms: Staying safe overnight

Staying in mixed dorms is generally not an issue for women. Those who want to take extra precautions will find dorms or shared rooms especially for women at many a&o hostels. The female-only space means women can feel at ease and relax quicker. Depending on how safe you feel, you can decide whether you want to stay in a mixed dorm or whether you would prefer a female dorm. If the latter is the case, we would advise checking with the hostel beforehand, even if female dorm rooms or shared rooms are a standard feature at many of our hostels these days.
