The Ten people you always get in hostels*

 
Backpacks + Bunkbeds - Storage = A whole lot of mess.

1. Some guy with a guitar. Sorry guys, but I'm all about travelling light. Guitars don't equal travelling light in my opinion.

2. The quiet loner who is glued to his/her laptop. Speaks when spoken to but otherwise quite happy to be left alone.

3. The party animal who wakes you up stumbling in at ridiculously early AM.

4. The loud skypers. Come on we have all heard one and/or are one.

5. The couple who think they are being sneaky with their love making but in reality? We all heard, you sound like a moose dying.

6. The giggling 18 year olds who love to go out and move around in groups of 4 and over.

7. The person/people who obviously hate sharing a room and having to speak to you but what backpacker can afford a private room in a hostel?

8. The hippy who spent the last year creating dreadlocks and has managed to turn their normal soft feet into leathery Hobbit feet from constantly walking around barefoot since leaving home.

9. The person who has 'done' every country and always has a story that can top yours.

10. The snorer. Everyone gets a snorer.

*Please take these with a pinch of salt, it's not all bad!

  1. I'll have to show you the photo but my bed when I was working in Mildura had the whole blanket hanging thing going on. It was such a good way to get some privacy in a room of so many people! X

    1. Yeah, when we had top bunks we thought it was weird, but now we have bottom bunks we totally get it xx

  2. I haven't stayed in that many hostel dorms but last year in New Zealand I encountered #10 and it was RIDICULOUS, I could just feel the whole room awake and shifting awkwardly in their beds because no one could sleep for the sound of the snoring...

    1. it's a nightmare isn't it, luckily we've just had a change of room mates and so far none of them seem to be major snorers so fingers crossed!
