In this guide, we unveil a unique Interrail route through all the cities that are home to Onefam Hostels. Experience the best of Eastern Europe, and the charm of Iberia.

Interrail Route: London, Prague, Budapest, Barcelona, Seville, Madrid, and Porto


Our Interrail journey begins in the eclectic capital of the UK. Dive into the historical charm of the British monarchy, explore the iconic landmarks, see a show in the West End, go to a British pub, and soak in the vibrant energy of Shoreditch. Onefam has two locations in London, one in Notting Hill and one in Waterloo, both of which are very social hostels.


Next stop – the fairytale city of Prague. You could either fly here from London or hop on the Eurostar and work your way to Prague through the Netherlands and Germany. Lose yourself in the enchanting architecture of the Old Town, cross the iconic Charles Bridge, and relish the panoramic views from Prague Castle. Onefam has three hostels in Prague so there’s plenty of choice. Again, each of their hostels in Prague are very social so your choice comes down to your preferred location; you can choose from being in the Old Town, Prague 1 or in trendy Vinohrady.


Budapest is up next – a true Interrail classic. Take a 7 hour train between the Czech Republic and Hungary capital cities where Budapest beckons with its thermal baths, ruin bars, the Buda Castle, Parliament building, and more! The Onefam Hostel in Budapest is situated in the lively Jewish Quarter, close to the iconic ruin bars and The Great Synagogue, which is the biggest synagogue in Europe.


Next up is Barcelona, a city pulsating with art and architecture, welcoming you with the surreal creations of Antoni Gaudí. You will need to catch a flight between these two places as the distance is too much to cover by train. Immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of La Rambla, indulge in the local cuisine, and head to watch a game at the Nou Camp. You’ll be pleased to know that Onefam has four amazing hostels in Barcelona, so you can choose exactly where you want to stay.


We now travel down to the south of Spain into the heart of Andalusia. The train journey from Barcelona to Seville takes about 5 hours. Seville is home to some of the most beautiful buildings in Spain and boasts a wealth of cultural and historical attractions. From passionate flamenco performances to using a paddle boat in Plaza de España, Seville offers something for everyone. Make sure to explore the Alcazar gardens, and climb the Giralda Tower for breathtaking views over the city. Onefam offers two great hostels in Seville; one near to the famous cathedral and the other in the city centre.


Madrid, the Spanish capital, is a 3 hour train ride away from Seville and strikes a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. Check out the art at the Prado Museum, stroll through Retiro Park, admire the tropical garden at Atocha train station, and savour incredible tapas in vibrant neighbourhoods. Onefam Hostel in Madrid ensures a restful haven amid the bustling energy of the city.


Hop on a train or a night train for an 8 hour journey to Porto via Vigo, where our journey concludes. Porto is a city renowned for its port wine and picturesque riverside views. Wander through the Ribeira District, taste the local delicacies, and enjoy a glass of port on a rooftop bar by the Douro River. Onefam Hostel in Porto is right in the heart of the action in Ribeira itself, right next to the Porto Cathedral. Like many other Onefam locations, it’s a social hostel and offers weekly family dinners as well as lots of day time activities so you can make the most of the final few days of your Interrail trip!

So, there you have it! You can head to the airport and catch a flight home, or Interrail your way back.
