A couple of weeks ago myself and Christianne from Backpacking Bananas got together and filmed a ‘beginners guide to hostels’ for you.
Fun fact for the day: Christianne and I were both in the same ALevel Maths class at college.
We have both spent the past 3 years in hostels all over the world so we thought what better to combine our knowledge and share it with you guys.
I know staying in a hostel for the first time can be daunting but honestly, they are the most welcoming place for solo travellers and if you’re anything like us, once you’ve stayed in one you’ll be hooked.
Not only do you instantly acquire a travel family to drink, explore and play beer pong with but you make friends for life all over the world. Additionally you save the all important pennies on accommodation costs, meaning you can see more of the world than ever before.
Expect topics along the likes of…
‘Should I use an alarm for the morning’
‘Is there somewhere to keep valuables safe’
‘Can you walk around in your underwear’
‘What happens when you find people having sex in your dorm room’
Watch our beginners guide to hostels video here…
Christianne and I will be filming some more videos for you guys soon – STAY TUNED!

I hope this has answered a few of your hostel questions!
