Think you're too old to stay in a hostel?



IN YOUR 20s  vs  IN YOUR 40s+
• You meet new people.
• You meet new people without children.

• You can sleep through anything - plastic bag rustling, people talking on the phone in Chinese till midnight, slamming doors.
• You discover other people besides your children are so annoying you want to (metaphorically) kill them.

• It’s cheap.
• It’s about the same price as going to the doctor to ask for a prescription for Valium.

• Your friends think it’s cool when you tell them where you’re staying.
• Your friends laugh their heads off them when you tell them where you’re staying.

• You’re nervous about snoring or farting in your sleep.
• You’re nervous about someone besides your husband snoring or farting in their sleep.

• You can use the communal kitchen to cook.
• You don’t have to cook, ever.

• You can come home drunk at 4 in the morning if you want to.
• You can come home drunk at 11pm if you want to.

• You can go out every night.
• You can go out two nights in a row.

• You have to use a communal toilet and shower.
• You don’t have to clean the communal toilet and shower.

• You think the hostel’s pets are adorable.
• You don’t have to walk, feed or pick up the poo of the hostel’s pets.


• You have to check out by 10am
• You can sleep in for an eternity!

• You might meet a hot half-naked Japanese guy in the hallway.
• You might meet a hot half-naked Japanese guy in the hallway.


I'd love to know: what's the most memorable experience you've had in a hostel?
