I loved The Flying Pig Hostel in Amsterdam. It was super social and the staff was incredibly friendly! If anyone finds themselves in Amsterdam check them out!
Maverick's City Lodge Budapest- really private beds that you could actually sit up in!

Casa Seibel, Xela, Guatemala (best beds ever)
El Pital (Chocolate paradise), Ometepe, Nicaragua
Happy Camper, Fort Cochin India (Loveliest owner ever, plus Oreo the cat)
Hathai, Jodhpur India (Great views on the rooftop and some very competitive card games)
Plus Prague, Czechia (More so to do with the fact it was New Years)
Bankers Backpackers Hostel, Interlaken Switzerland (Good atmosphere, pretty)
goStops Jaipur, India (aircon + fans, beds with curtains, cheap breakfast and a movie longue. Seriously good by Indian hostel standards).
My top hostel was sunset destination in Lisbon. Has a rooftop pool, free sangria hour (or half hour cant remember exactly) and incredibly well sound proofed rooms despite being in the centre of the city and party going on all around i slept like a baby
In no particular order:
1. Coffee Tree Boutique Hostel, Salento, Colombia
2. Caoji Book Inn, Tainan, Taiwan
3. Meander, Taipei, Taiwan
4. Social Hostel 365, Sapporo, Japan
5. Copenhagen Downtown Hostel, Denmark
For each of these, I’d say it’s down to a combination of good facilities and nice social experiences that I’ve had there. There are other hostels that I've stayed in with amazing facilities but no atmosphere – they don’t make the list!
I am bookmarking all of these on my google maps!
If you are looking for a non party but social hostel in Thailand I recommend The Yard Hostel Bangkok.
