Don't be a square!
The Hostelbookers website has had a slight facelift this month, so be sure to let us know what you think of the improvements. To celebrate, we’ve abandoned the traditional champagne and looked at top city squares around the world instead…

Times Square, New York, USA
One of New York's most iconic images, Times Square is named after the one-time headquarters of The New York Times. Not actually a square, but rather a huge neon illuminated road intersection between 6th and 9th Avenues.

Red Square, Moscow, Russia
Often considered Russia’s central square as many of Moscow's main streets radiate from here, turning into major roads outside the city. The first site in the USSR added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and surrounded by awe inspiring buildings – Lenin’s Mausoleum, Saint Basil’s Catherdral and the Kremlin.

Trafalgar Square, London, England
Completed by Charles Barry in 1845, Trafalgar Square commemorates British victory at the Battle of Trafalgar. Famous for political demonstrations, the occasional riot and the even more occasional celebration of English sporting success.

Tiananmen Square, Beijing, China
Built in 1417 in the Ming Dynasty and translated as “Gate of Heavenly Peace”, Tiananmen is the largest urban square in the world at 880 by 550 metres. It’s always been at the centre of key events in Chinese history, and is still heavily monitored by uniformed and plain clothes policemen.

Plaza Reial, Barcelona, Spain
Perhaps the most beautiful square in Spain, Plaza Reial is enclosed by stately buildings and decorated with palm trees. Full of restaurants, bars and travellers hanging out around the water fountain - a great place to enjoy a beer and watch the world go by.
