FIVE TIPS FOR YOUR NEXT HOSTEL TRIP
Are you planning your next trip in a hostel? Anywhere you'll go, these tips will help you to make your stay unforgettable!!
 
Tip 1. Don’t be shy!
 
First, don’t be shy. Even if you are naturally a shy person, I’m an introvert, I enjoy time to myself, but when it comes to it you have to be outgoing in hostels! Say hello to guests in your dorm, meet people in the common area, organise doing things with new friends you meet and you’re bound to make new friendships. This is a really important thing for when your staying in a hostel for the firs time. You just have to go for it, will be amazing!!
 
Tip 2. Don’t confine yourself to your dorm
 
Don’t let your dorm buddies keep finding you alone in your bed, watching Netflix or YouTube too scared to go explore. You’re in a great city, new country, exploring is the reason you’re here. Yes it can be daunting going out somewhere new, especially if you’re travelling alone, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet, jump into the deep end, piss into the wind… all the motivational phrases. Just go and enjoy!!
 
Tip 3. Turn off your phone if people are trying to sleep
 
This is a personal pet peeve of mine. You might be okay having a bright blue light 6 inches from your face but I’m not okay with that, especially late at night. Believe it or not smartphones are bright, honestly bright infact, and there is a lot of bounce so almost the entire room can be filled by this cool blue glow. Not nice!!
 
Tip 4. Take care of your valuables
 
Hostels are not responsible for your valuables, this is a bit of a given, even in hotel rooms you should watch your values and use the safe box – it’s the same in a hostel, if anything, you need to be even more vigilant. If the hostel has locker in your room simply use it, leave all you valuables in there, and use the lock on your suitcase to prevent people from getting to your clothes and other items. And if you want to be super safe, keep your valuables on you.
 
Tip 5. Use hostel's facilities
 
Hostels know what you'll need to make your stay amazing. Usually they have affordable and competitive prices and surely they will give you the best advices. If they suggest you to rent a bike or better get a taxi...well, they have their reasons: follow them, you are just arrived, they are living there!!
