When I’m on the road, I don’t spend a lot of time in my room, so why pay $100+? All I’m looking for is a shower, a bed and a place to keep my backpack. Hostels fit the bill.
Here’s the top six things I’ve come to terms with since falling in love with hostels.
In Heidelberg I slept in a room of six people, one we affectionately dubbed “Snorelax” and another “The Zipper King.” You can imagine how we all tried to fall asleep before Snorelax. The Zipper King waited until the dead of night to unzip every pocket on his backpack, looking for some long lost sock… or something. I learned to be thoughtful when digging around in my stuff while bunkmates are in bed.
I also came to terms with some noise. You can huff and puff or say something snarky, or you can roll over and fall back asleep.
