Three backpackers head to a Slovak city that promises to meet their hedonistic expectations, with no idea of the hell that awaits them.
(at around 18 mins) When Paxton, Josh and Oli first arrive at the Slovakian hostel, the hostel personnel are watching a film on TV. This film is Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994) (Tarantino was a producer for "Hostel").
(at around 1h 26 mins) Near the end, as the train enters the Vienna station a sign saying Praha (Prague) can be seen reflecting off the train windows.
At the very end of the credits, the character of Natalya is heard to say, "I get a lot of money for you... and that make you my bitch". This is a piece of audio lifted from an earlier scene in the film.
The unrated DVD contains three additions that weren't in the theatrical version:
English, Czech, German, Dutch, Slovak, Japanese, Icelandic, Russian, Spanish
$19,556,099 (USA) (8 January 2006)
