Choosing The Best Backpackers Hostel

hostels-bunk bed

Choosing the best backpackers hostel will take a little research, and you are better off doing this before you leave home. Booking at least the first hostel in advance will ensure that you have somewhere to stay, particularly when you first arrive in the country. It would be awful to arrive in a new country, feeling jet lagged and tired, and then have to hunt around for a hostel. Backpacker hostels offer great accommodation, and there are many located in the heart of the city. Once you have arrived you can start to think about where you will be next and look into hostels at your next destination.

Research

Before you commit to staying in a particular hostel do a bit of research beforehand. Many hostels have their own websites with all the information about their facilities and the cost of staying per night. Find out whether there are single rooms available or if there is only dormitory style sleeping arrangements. Some backpacker hostels separate men and women, depending on the country, and this can be a problem if travelling with your partner. You might be on holidays with your family, so look for a more family friendly hostel, preferably one not located on top of a nightclub, for example.

Recommendations

As well as consulting your guidebook and having a look at a hostels website you will also find that social networking sites are often good places to find people’s opinions on where are the best places to stay. Also ask around. Your fellow travellers will have all the insights as to where are the best places if they have stayed there themselves.

View the room

It can be a good idea to view the room before you sign up to stay, particularly in a foreign country where language might be a bit of a barrier and you are not sure exactly what it is you are getting for you money. Independently owned hostels can be a bit of a hit and miss experience and many countries overseas have different standards then we do here in Europe.

Searching

If you are travelling in a group it can be a good idea when you hit a new town to split up and each go and check out a different hostel. This will save you time and give you insight into places that you might not have considered. Meet back and discuss your options. You might want somewhere that you can all share a room, that has a bathroom to cater for just your group and has its own kitchen facilities.

Follow the crowd

A good indication that a hostel is good is whether there are a lot of people staying there. Having said this you might find that popular hostels are already full, but like a good restaurant, the bigger the crowd the better it is. A packed hostel might not be your cup of tea, as it is likely to be noisy, especially at night with people coming home late at night after being on the town. You should find a hostel that isn’t too crowded but still isn’t too empty. This way you might get a little sleep.
