3Agree with lucapal & Battybilly. The inter rail passes for Europe are divided into regional passes so the cost would depend on which countries you wanted to visit. In a month it would be cheaper to stick to 1 region and also experiencing more of that area rather than rushing through. Where to go depends on your interests, any must see places you have and your budget.......a month in Eastern Europe a lot cheaper than Western Europe and Scandinavia. Are you set on train travel....a few one way budget airline flights between a few cities could work out as cheap as an inter rail pass

7I used the month global pass for my Europe trip in the summer. I thought it was worth the money completely as I was under 25 and live inside the EU (cheaper), I traveled for 5 weeks, visited 7 countries and 13 cities. It was great for me as I planned to visit numerous countries however if you are just planning on staying one country or just visiting a couple I don't believe it would be worth it.
If staying on night trains there is usually a bed reservation fee (which I would recommend looking into before your trip just so you know when to plan ahead).
If you want any more questions about hostels, places to visit answered, just ask :)

10I don't really think you can call any travelling experience a 'mistake'. I loved every single moment of my trip :). Most of the cities in the first 2 weeks I had previously visited before (and loved) therefore really wanted to go back, stay a couple of nights and see the things I missed out on. Of course I could have defiantly done things better but hey that's life you live and you learn!
As for packing, I think my rucksack was 40L. I brought a pair of flip flops and comfortable shoes for walking (didn't use them much) and then literally just the basics, couple of pairs of shorts and t-shirts etc. Most hostels have washing machines (and in the best ones there are free to use :D) or else if you're like me, just wash them by hand. Everyone will tell you DO NOT OVER PACK, and I am so glad I didn't, made it a million times easier; you just don't need the stuff.
I traveled with a friend for the first week, then was on my own. We flew into Berlin then I made my way to Milan and flew home from there. My favorite places were Split, Lake Bled, Venice, Rome and Florence. Plus hostels are great, especially loved the campsites in Venice and Rome (super cheap), wombats hostels were fab and in Bled Travelers Haven was super (really recommend it). I suppose I loved these hostels as socializing was easy, they have lots of partys etc..
