Mariah Carey is promoting hostels now, and it’s actually kind of amazing.

The “Always Be My Baby” singer is trying to change the perception of hostels, teaming up for a sketch with Hostelworld called “Even Divas Are Believers.” In the video — which you can watch below — Carey accidentally arrives at the $40-a-night Casa Gracia during a trip to Barcelona. Miraculously, she ends up liking it so much that she dresses up in a fancy sequined dress, hits the cocktail bar, and performs “Fantasy” (with a white dove) to backpackers and travelers.

Even the press release is gold. One line reads, “Known for outlandish diva demands, from ordering dog chauffeurs to demanding 20 white kittens and 100 doves for a performance and even having bodyguards watch her eat, Mariah surprised everyone when she exclaimed the hostel was ‘Fabulous!’”

Carey says, “For some reason, someone thought it would be funny to book me in a hostel. To mine and everyone’s surprise, the hostel was fabulous! It was super-clean, modern, and spacious. I say give hostels a go — it could be a great choice for all you world travelers out there!”

OK … but did Mariah actually stay in a hostel while filming this sketch? Now that’s something we’d have to see to believe.
