3 Ways to Put a Comfortable Twist on Your Next Hostel Stay

Hostels come with a long list of benefits, but comfort usually isn’t the main reason why travelers opt to stay at one. They’re not as comfy as other types of accommodation, but there are things you can do to make the best of your stay, starting with these three.

Do Your Research

Before making your booking, take some time to go through the reviews left by the previous guests. They’ll tell you all you need to know about the hostel you’re thinking of booking, giving you all the info about cleanliness, comfort level of beds, and quality of other amenities at the hostel.

Pack for Comfort

Even if the hostel has a good comfort rating, you should still bring some essentials that can help you make the best of your stay. Earplugs and an eye mask are a must, especially if you’re staying at a dorm with no privacy curtains, but bringing your own pillowcase and sheets can also help.

Getting Some Privacy

Hostel dorms are definitely the cheapest type of accommodation on the market, but they’re not everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re craving some more privacy, getting your own room is also an option, but you can also consider booking a smaller dorm with a private bathroom if a private room doesn’t fit into your budget.
