What are your interests? Cities? museums? Food? Scenery?

You’ve got a nice list of cities, and a fairly reasonable pace, although several of your cities are places where it would be easy to spend at least 4 days.

We are planning to cancel Prague. We have found some nice hostels in the following cities
Barcelona- sant jordi diagnol
Rome- the yellow
Berlin- wombat’s hostel
Any info on these???
It would be really helpful if someone would suggest hostels in Florence, Venice, Zurich, Paris and Amsterdam. We are a group of college students in their early 20’s, so we are looking for party hostels.

Prague’s probably the last place I’d cancel. Why Zurich? Why Burssels? Neither says “party” to me — although Brussels is very cosmopolitan with lots of African, Caribbean ethnic vibes.

Completely agree with Oldlady. Keep Prague. Lots of Party hostels there – ELF is my first thought.

In Barcelona I would highly recommend Kabul Hostel if you are looking for a party. In Amsterdam, the Flying Pig is the place to go if you want to not really remember the time you spent there. As for Venice, good luck. No party hostels and everything is pretty expensive. Skip Zurich.

I am leaving from New York, NY and traveling for 64 days
Reykjavik, London, Lille, Berlin, Kraków, Lviv, Istanbul, Selçuk, Pamukkale, Kızkalesi, Göreme, Kars, Bat'umi, Akhalts'ikhe, Tbilisi, Telavi, Istanbul

Sorry, I think you should have your own plan. Discuss with your buddies. Spend some time before the trip. And don’t forget to share it with us. Good luck.
