Hostels À Go-Go: Crash Pads With A Latin Beat

  • PROJECT NAME Hostels Roundup
  • FIRM Multiple

In celebration of the summer months, Interior Design rounded up three far-flung hostels, each with their own particular flavor. At We Hostel Design in São Paulo, Brazil, by Felipe Hess Architect, a century-old mansion finds its funky side via flea-market furnishings and zingy accent colors. Letters and symbols against white walls create urban-style graphics. At Miami Beach's Freehand by Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors, old Havana meets summer camp—if the cabins came with serape throws, floral wallpaper, and vintage milk-glass pendant fixtures. And at Design Agency's Generator in Barcelona, Spain, a 1960's office building became an outpost of a hostel chain thanks to aluminum louvers and visible beneath them, a riot of colored lanterns.
