Mariah Carey’s hilarious ad will change your mind about Hostels

SHE’S known for her outrageous demands and diva behaviour. So what on Earth is she doing hanging out with the backpacker set.

FORGET everything you know about backpacker hostels.

They’ve stepped up their act from grotty to glam — so much so, even one of the world’s best known divas feels right at home there.

At least, that’s the case at Casa Gracia in Barcelona, the setting of hostel new ad campaign, which stars Mariah Carey.

Under the tagline “Even divas are believers”, the ad sees the singer pull up to the hostel in a limo and poke fun at her own “diva” reputation.
