Known for his love of the finer things in life, one of the world’s most renowned rappers, 50 Cent, has had his debut hostel experience! Hostelworld, introduced 50 Cent to hostel life on his recent trip to Barcelona, allowing him to enjoy all the bling without the sting.
The new video from Hostelworld, the global leading hostel accommodation platform, sees 50 back in front of the camera starring in a ‘Hostel Cribs’ parody of iconic noughties TV show, MTV Cribs. 50 Cent lifts the lid on today’s hostel, revealing he doesn’t need to compromise on the luxury, amenities and lavish lifestyle he is used to.
The film follows 50 Cent as he takes his viewers around TOC Hostel in Barcelona, showing off the community vibes of the hostel, along with the incredible facilities on offer; from a swimming pool to a roof top chill area, a bustling bar and a private room ‘ensuite style’ with a plush terraced balcony.
50 Cent on his recent stay: “I’ve travelled the world and have stayed at some of the most insane places but none of them had the same vibe and energy that I found at The Hostel in Barca, I never knew hostels could be that dope.”
Otto Rosenberger, CMO at Hostelworld, said: “We are so happy to have converted 50 Cent into a hosteller – he’s found the best way to live like a millionaire without having to part with crazy amounts of money in the process, which means he can live it up in private rooms, cool off in swimming pools and let loose at the bar without breaking the bank. We look forward to welcoming the rest of the world’s music elite at our hostels very soon.”
