    16! Best one on here. I had a 16-bed dorm to myself once, amazing! Loving number 3 as well. After a while, you just kind of…sit. And wait.

  • James Barton

    That’s awesome

  • Joanna Beata

    When you’re glad the snoring dude from last night moved on, and a new even louder snoring one moves into your dorm..

  • Joanna Beata

    And of course, when you’re contemplating buying train tickets from the sleezy dude on the corner because at the station they’re all sold out (in China it’s a 50:50 chance of getting real tickets, and a sane prize).

    Number 16 is brilliant, love an empty dorm haha! Also, the relief when after an hour eating you haven’t seen your food again and you know you’ve found a good place to eat!

    And sleep at terminal floor?

  • carlos franco

    When you have extremely heavy luggage, and your room happens to be on the top floor WITHOUT A LIFT!

  • steve

    When you check into a 6 bed dorm, then later they put 2 mattresses on the floor because “some more guests arrived”

  • Anita Cocktail

    Or when a drunk Korean guy comes smashing into your hostel bedroom at 5 am and starts peeing all over the floor. And no amount of English/Broken Korean will stop him. Yep he went on for about 5 mins and covered the whole floor! FML

    • Niko

      hahaha! this is so gross!!! same happened with me during my stay in Vienna (the guy was from Japan)
