How to Name a Hostel?

If you are going to start your own business and open the hostel, you need to choose the best catchy name for it. There are numerous examples of names of already existing businesses that can be divided into two main groups. In this article, you can find the careful description of both of them, and this may help you come up with your own original brand without much difficulty.

How to name a hostel?

The names of the hostels are diverse, mostly because they do not have to be associated with the sphere of business. For example, the original The Phoenix may work even better than a long brand. Moreover, the business owners use the very different words in their names, from common nouns and adjectives to phrases, non-existing words, and puns. However, these brands can still be divided into two main categories: the group that includes the simple names and the group that includes more complicated ones. Just look through each of them and carefully read their description – we hope it will help you to create your own catchy name.

  1. Simple one-word and two-word names. Many business owners prefer the simple brands because they are catchy and easy to remember. They usually consist of the keyword ‘hostel’ and the other word (adjective or noun) or number. Hostels may be named after famous people, localities, animals, etc. They may be associated with travels, rest, coziness, and friends or be completely original, for example, The Crown, Chameleon, The Dictionary Hostel, etc.
  2. Names that consist of three and more words. Although these names are longer than the brands from the previous group, they still have their advantages. First of all, they often are creative and cannot be confused with any other ones, for example, Smar’T Flight Hostel, Sputnik Hostel and Personal Space, Hakuna Matata Hostel and so forth. Secondly, they may tell the customer something about the place, for instance, Fauna Luxury Hostel, Stay with Friends, Home Cooking Hostel, etc.
