Pre-booking hostels in Europe in April

Jump to last reply

I'm fantasizing about a solo trip to Europe in April 2012. I'm nearing 70 and 2012 may be about the last chance I get, but that's a different thread. For now, my dream is to do it without doing the usual anal, obsessive, compulsive over--planning I usually do! If I do this, I'd buy a one-month Eurailpass, take the cheapest flight I could find to wherever in Europe from whence I could use my pass, and just bop around!

So my question: In April, how important would it be to book hostels ahead of time (as opposed to more traditional hotels)? I'd be in a mix of major cities (Berlin, Paris, etc.) and mid sized ones like Dresden, Leipzig, Oslo, Bergen, etc.
