10 TIPS TO SURVIVE IN HOSTEL!!!
 
 
If you are reading this blog article probably you are planning to come in Barney's Da Nang Backpackers Hostel, so you won't have any of these problems ( aahhahaahah, no i'm joking, i cannot say you now which guest you'll find during your stay!!) but if you are simply curious, these tips are a good start to help you in enjoying your stay in a hostel!!
 
 
Ok, so, learning how to survive hostel life can be quite the adjustment. We leave the comforts of our home to travel to a new and exciting destination! There are a few reasons why we choose to stay in hostels when backpacking - they are cheap, social and usually right in the heart of where you want to be.
 
Some of us spend just a few nights in Da Nang Hostel... travelling from city to city, or country to country, whilst many of us choose to place ourselves in the one place for a few months to really experience the country. We attempt to look for a house. We look for work.  And we spend all of our money on alcohol. In the end - the hostel becomes our home... and that's the way we like it. 
 
So, if you are at your first experience in a Budget Hostel Danang, or if you are usually travel and sleep in hostels, i'm sure you'll find these tips really helpful!!
 
 
 
1. STAFF ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS SINCE THE BEGINNING
 
Hostel Staff have the key to everything... Soaps, Bath Towels, Internet! You get the idea.
 
2. READ THE REVIEWS
 
 
When you booking a hostel, be sure to read up on it. There’s nothing worse than blindly being duped into booking a room which appears to be in the right location or at the right price, but then to turn up and find you’ll be sleeping in the deepest dimension of hell.

Google the hostel name and read a few of the reviews to get a rounded view of the place before hitting BOOK. And repay the favour to the travelling community by reviewing the accommodation once you depart.
 
3. KNOW THE PLACE BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
 
Some hostels are part of bigger networks, which regulate facilities and demand a certain level of quality and transparency. For more independent locations, Yelp and Tripadvisor are your best friends. That being said, take everything with a grain of salt. Lots of people book hostels online or over the phone with unrealistic expectations of both the facilities and their roommates. Don’t cancel your trip for one bad review, but mine as much information as you can. The goal is to know exactly what you’re getting and what you’re not. Breakfast? Wifi? Hairdryers? Some modern hostels offer luxurious amenities like built-in bedside reading lights, blackout drapes and air conditioning, but if they don’t flaunt it on their website, don’t expect it. After all, hostels are meant to be bare bone bargains.
 
4. EAR PLUGS: THE HOLY GRAIL No. 1
 
When sharing a 4, 6 or even 16 bed dorm, there’ll be a variety of activity going on. From the sweet snufflers to the god awful room-rumbling snorers, the door slamming to the excited whisperers, the drunks to the shouters – you may have an orchestra of noises trying to stop you from sleeping.

It’s not the end of the world as you are surrounded by humans who are living and have bodily functions, but I for one struggle to sleep when there’s noise or bass pumping music.
 
It’s best to try block out the noise than scream at others to shut the F up (you won’t make many friends that way), but if it does get too rowdy, ask politely or power through the night with your trusty pals, the ear plugs.
 
5. PLAN AHEAD
 
Ok so you've found yourself a job and you've convinced yourself that finding a house is the way to go. Forget it. Just bite the bullet and accept the fact that you are never leaving the hostel. Ask for a Weekly Rate and settle into the long-termers room - just do it. 
 
6. MAKE LOCALS FRIENDS
 
For an unknown and bizarre reason, some locals tend to hang out in backpacker bars. Befriend these people (even if they disgust you). These people will acknowledge YOUR financial situation as a hostel dweller and ensure that you are well aware of THEIR financial situation as a person with their own bathroom. Drinks shall be bought for you.
 
7. TAKE NAPS
 
Say good bye to a good night's sleep. Say good bye to a predictable sleeping pattern. From the moment you move into the hostel your sleeping schedule will consist solely of naps. Afternoons are my personal fav... most travellers are out exploring at this time!
 
8. EMBRACE GOON
 
Goon is your friend. It will make you happy. Mix it up with some tropical juice and lemonade and you've got yourself a Goon Cocktail!
 
9. INVEST IN EXTRA STRONG DEODORANT

10. TRAIN YOUR NOSE TO TURN BAD SMELLS INTO GOOD SMELLS
 
This is a hard skill to obtain - but it is possible! Grab yourself a 'How To' Book and start training - it will make your hostel experience a hell of a lot more enjoyable! Bye Bye Smelly Feet... Hello Vanilla Rose.
 
Forgot to shower? Not to fear! Your extra strong spray is here!
 
 
 
As i said, coming in Barney's Danang Hostel, you won't have almost of these problems. Cleanless is our priority, our staff is the most friendly ever and they are ready to give you the best tips to enjoy Danang.
