I am going backpacking around Europe for 2 weeks, starting 5/29. I will visit Zurich, San Remo, Nice, Paris, London, and Prague. Going solo, first time, and a little concerned about accomodations. Do I need to make reservations at the hostels, or will I most likely find vacancies in the first 2 weeks of June? Does anyone know?

Hey Frenchi,

I don't think you'd have too much trouble finding vacancies, but booking in advance can help you find the best possible spot. I would at least recommend you book your first night or two, just while you find your bearings!

yeah i strongly agree - book your first 2 nights ahead of time.

And also plan acordingly for Nice. I heavily trafficed tourist area and not as many hostels as teh bigger cities you are visiting. Ide call or email ahead there as awell.
