So there are thousands of backpacker hostels in the world and there are many FKK beaches, resorts, and other accommodations designed for nudists in the world.

But has anyone yet opened a hostel for nudists anywhere?

Now I know the real reason why you've been traveling so much! You were on a quest, weren't you? :D – JoErNanO Feb 3 '15 at 22:35

No, there are no nudist hostels, but [Yes @user10134 has pointed to a clothes optional hostel] you can easily find some nudist campsites in Europe or even some nudist hotels. Note that some naturist campsites only allow you to camp there if you are a couple to prevent voyeurs.

+1. By the way, here is an explanation why there might be no nude hostels ... – user766 Dec 30 '11 at 10:44
Hehe @lejohn that's why it might not work in the US. But maybe in Europe or Thailand or Mexico somewhere... (-: – hippietrail Dec 30 '11 at 13:00
Well, in Europe it would not be much different ... – user766 Dec 30 '11 at 17:31
Social nudity is about stuff including body acceptance, not about perving at each others' bums by the way. So the ages and attractiveness of guests shouldn't be a factor at all. – hippietrail Jan 5 '12 at 14:07

The Gazebo Golden Bay Backpackers in Takaka, New Zealand is clothing-optional, open December through March each year. Close to the nude beaches and a promoter of the local Naked Bike Ride. Quote: All levels of dress are acceptable.

We have a location but not registered officially. Usually by invitation only as only want genuine nudists. We are in Western Australia. Genuine nudist backpackers can contact us via

We do not tolerate drugs, we are not swingers, we are a family, our standing in the community is important and we don't want that jeopardised.

How do you determine they are 'genuine'? – Ankur Banerjee Mar 13 '12 at 17:16
Pics or GTFO. ;) – dlanod Jan 27 '14 at 22:13
