Hostels
#1
Haven't seen much discussed about them here so i figured i'd get a thread going. DigitalNomad had a great datasheet and stories about hostels on roosh. Obviously hostels aren't the best place to bring a local girl back to, but for someone young who travels solo like myself, i think its great for meeting people instead of going out at night solo. Sure finding a girl above an 8 is super rare but most of the girls are pretty open to a good time and private rooms definitely come in clutch. When i travel solo i'll normally stay in a hostel during weekdays then book an airbnb for the weekends.
Would love to hear some recommendations for some good hostels throughout the world.

I do like hostels too and stayed a lot in hostels just because I like the social aspect of it and it's easy to meet people and go out together or do some sightseeing together etc. For bangs, you'll need to stay in a private room or what I also did in the past was just staying at an airbnb nearby.

However they are also cons with hostels:
- A lot of hippies/broke begpackers/ leftists/ dreadlockers staying there, so I mean, are these the people we really want to hangout with?
- Backpackers have their scarcity mindset and usually want to save money on everything
- Your stuff can get stolen easily in hostels and people there in general can't be trusted
- Girls their are usually 5s or 6s with tattoos and nose rings
- A lot gangsters/Alcoholics/ Drugs addicts are staying in these hostels too, especially if they are older

They're by far the best way to travel in your 20s unless you're already traveling with a big group of friends. Its just such a good way to meet other people, both potential wingmen and also girls. It is definitely usually a bad ratio in hostels, but so many of the guys have no game or are just there to drink that if you move on the girls relatively early, when most guys are just drinking with each other, you can usually do well in my experience.

I'd always only stay in a private room though, both for hooking up reasons and also for security and for your own piece of mind. They usually don't cost that much more than a dorm, and just make the whole experience so so much more pleasant.

I've mentioned it on another thread here, but once you hit your late 20s and have a bit more cash a good move is to book the cheapest bed possible in a party hostel and then also book an airbnb for yourself nearby. You can get your hostel wristband so you can drink in there, go on the pub crawls etc, but then also deal with absolutely none of the bullshit and actually stay in a nice place.

I emailed DigitalNomad's big definitive post on hostels to a friend a while ago, so I have it in my sentbox so can repost it in full here. Full credit to the man himself - he really knew his shit. Reading his thread on RVF and its regular travel debauchery updates always made me smile while I was sitting in the office dreaming of new holidays. I hope hes still out there living the life.

Quote:DigitalNomad said:
Typed this up to give aspiring travelers an idea of what to expect with hostels, as well as some tips I've learned from staying at probably 100 different hostels and working for 3 months at one.

What:
Hostels are a cheaper versions of hotels, typically aimed at backpackers. Although there are a few in larger cities in the US and Canada, they are much more common in other countries around world. Typically there will be a mix of dorms, ranging from 4 beds to 16 beds, and also private rooms. There will normally be a communal kitchen and social room as well.

Who you meet:
Your typical person staying at a hostels will be 18-30 years old. There is definitely a prototypical backpacker, and that's your long hair, heavily tattooed hippy type guys, and tattooed, slightly overweight, 5-6s for girls. Don't expect your average LA aspiring model to be staying at hostels, a lot of the girls you meet will be extremely average and sometimes a bit dirty from a lack of showers or not doing laundry. Good party hostels will also have more guys than girls, sometimes significantly so.

All this said, you'll also meet more than enough attractive women at hostels from all over the world. I've slept with women from Ukraine, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Malta, Argentina and Chile along with god knows how many Americans, Brits, Canadians and Aussies. To help your odds, a lot of the guys at hostels will be pretty beta or have terrible game. There are a few people that sleep with the majority of backpackers, and you'll know them when you see them. Your biggest competition will be the hostel staff, which will make you feel like you are competing with Leo DiCaprio sometimes, because they are basically celebrities. On that note...

Working at hostels:
There probably aren't many jobs in the world that allow you the opportunity to sleep with as many women as you will get if you work at a party hostel. Depending on the hostel, you'll be required to work between 2 weeks and 3 months. Expect to work either for free or less than $50/week, but you'll get free accommodation, possibly food, laundry and bar discounts as well. If you are spending too much money on a long vacation, this is a good way to stall the expenditures for a few weeks. Double check with other staff members on the rules though, some hostels prohibit staff from sleeping with guests. On the other end, the one I worked at allowed 30 minute "sex breaks," because a guest getting laid is a happy guest.

What to look for:
When I book a hostel, the first thing I search for in google is "party hostel (city)." Then you will want to check ratings on Hostelworld. Typically you'll be looking for 85% or better, and ideally with quite a few reviews, >250. At the end of this I'll include a list of my favorite ones from around the world. A lot of the best party hostels have public bars. They will also set up drinking games or pub crawls around the city. If getting laid is a priority, you may have to sacrifice some comforts. My main priorities when choosing a hostel are 1. Fun 2. Location 3. Cleanliness. More on this below, but I would rather stay at the best hostel in a dorm than a mediocre hostel with a private room. On Hostelworld "fun" isn't a rating category, but "atmosphere" will likely correlate quite well.

Hostel conversations:
Backpackers are a open, social bunch so you can basically walk up to anyone to talk or sit at any table with other people. It's lame, and its repetitive, but it's easy... basically all conversations in hostels start in this manner: Where are you from? How long are you traveling? Where have you been/are you going? If you can't keep that conversation going from there, you haven't travelled enough or you need to work on your conversational abilities because once you have the answers to those questions that's ammo for a bunch of conversations. Alternatively you can be the rare one that doesn't follow this train of questions, but she'll probably take it there anyway.

Logistics:
You need good logistics to get laid at a hostel. I'll do my best to address as many issues as possible.

Security:
Your first barrier to entry will be getting the girl into the hostel. Obviously if she is staying there, this isn't an issue. Some hostels may not be too strict due to a lack of night security, but that is more common in smaller hostels, not the big party hostels. Wristbands are the most common way they confirm whether you are a guest or not. I'll intentionally "lose" my wristband the 1st or 2nd day, while actually just pulling it off and putting it in my wallet. Then when going back with a girl, you can put it on her. You can do this with slide cards as well, but you may have to pay a $5 deposit or something, not the end of the world.

Where to get it in:
How adventurous are you? The one thing with hostel sex is it isn't always the most comfortable sex. The shower is probably the best option if you are in a dorm room. The dorm is the next option. Always take a bottom bunk, that way you can hang the sheet up like a screen. I've also seen everything from the luggage room, to behind curtains and reception, to out door patios.

Pro-tip- If you can afford it, private rooms are the way to go. They normally cost about 2-3x as much, but you'll increase your chances so much. If I'm in a private and I'm making progress with a girl, I'll drop that in conversation early on just to plant the seed. I met an Aussie girl at a hostel last week and she wanted to go back to my room about 20 minutes after meeting her, and 2 minutes after I told her I had the matrimonial suite. Security may also be more lax on a private if you haven't managed to secure an extra wristband because they are normally meant for 2 people.

Another tip is to keep a bottle of alcohol in your room. There is a line that has gotten my laid more times than I can count "I have a bottle in my room, let's go take a shot." If she agrees, I normally close about 2/3 times. If it's early enough in the night, you'll also likely come back to an empty dorm room. If you can bring alcohol in, you can buy a 12 pack of beer and give em out to the other guests. Doesn't set you back much and all of a sudden everyone likes you and wants to chat, and you'll get enough reciprocal drinks to make it worth it.

Drinking game tip- Ring of Fire/ Kings Cup/ Circle of Death is a good one for a big group at hostel. Make sure you are in charge of the rules. Make one of the cards- I use the 10- never have I ever. If you get the chance to say one, use "never have I ever had sex at a hostel." I've changed my targets after that before because the one I thought was quiet and shy put a finger down. Slept with her an hour or two or so later in the shower. Not that you can't be the first to accomplish this for them, but if they've done it before they'll do it again.

When backpacking, or in life in general, have a god damn condom with you at all times. I don't care if you are going for coffee at 9am, have one. Every time I hear about a guy who brought a girl back to a hostel and didn't close because he didn't have a condom I went to punch him in the ribs.

If you reach the end of the night with no luck at the bars, it never hurts to sit in the common area and check your phone or have a beer. People will slowly come trickling in and sometimes you can grab an end of the night desperation lay. I've seen that and heard stories about that more than enough times to assure you it's worth it.

One final thing with party hostels:
You don't necessarily have to be staying at the hostel to go the bar. If you decide to do the airbnb or hotel route, the hostels with public bars can be an amazing place to pick up. Similar to how you can slyly mention you have a private, it works well to mention you have an airbnb nearby. What girl wants to sleep in a 16 bed dorm when you can share a queen bed with you and get laid as a bonus.

My favorite party hostels for getting laid:

Retox - Budapest
The shenanigans here is off the charts. Pub crawls or boat parties every night. Drink you way out of the room- which the one I did consisted of an entire room of topless girls, while one was getting fucked while blowing someone else, and another couple fucking next to them. Had a 3 in one day hat trick there. I think I was 4/6 overall, but after the 3rd day I stuck with one for the rest of the time.

Loki- Cusco, among other locations
Drinking games every night. Tons of Peruvian gringo hunters. I was 5/6 there and incredibly closed to 7/6.

Madhouse, Prague
Great social hostel, designed to allow guests to interact and party. Group dinners. Nightly pub crawls. A black painted hangover room for recovery. Sex themed room names. Only closed 1/4 there,

Greg and Toms Party Hostel- Krakow
Nightly parties or pub crawls. Group dinners. A staff of women that all consistently sleep with guests. They even let you check out a few hours late for a small fee if you are too hungover to get out of bed.

Pink Palace- Corfu, Greece
Probably one of the most historical Poosey Paradises of the 90s, when over 1000 guests would be there and everyone leaving wth at least one conquest, if not public blowjobs on the bar or sex on the booze cruise. Unfortunately due to cancellation of trains and declining Greek tourism it's a fraction of what it was. But even then, you won't find many places better for June and July. If you have pretty good game, expect something close to a lay a day there.

Rising Cock- Lagos, Portugal
The name implies what to expect, fun, sexually based hostel. Pub crawls nightly, byob outdoor patio with drinking games. Twice a week booze cruises. I was 2/4 there but a third was promised if I hadn't had to catch a bus right after the booze cruise.

Naked Tiger- San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
Fun times at the pool, Sunday Funday's are absolute madness, and the city overall is just the right vibe for pulling. Strict security at night cock blocked a lot of people. 4/6 overall.

Hostels are great in certain situations, where else can you show up in some random city where you don't know anyone and sometimes even minutes after arriving in the hostel you are heading out to party with a group of people, as opposed to going out by yourself or waiting for some online chick to meet up.

I can agree with what pretty much everyone has said on here, I highly recommend staying in a high-quality hostel (not necessarily expensive) for almost anybody who has never done it. I've even met much older people (40s, possibly 50s) who I've seen in hostels. Granted, I don't find those in hard partying themed hostels, but I have seen them in a sociable places, and it's always all good. Everybody's open to chatting with everybody, it's just the culture I've noticed. Hostels are seriously an amazing experience and I wish I've been doing it since I turned 18.

The first time I really enjoyed traveling on my own was when I stayed in hostels for the first time. Even apart from hooking up, you get to meet not just the people of the country that you are visiting, but people from all around the world. So you get options from many different countries instead of just one. I've seen some pretty hot girls stay in hostels as well, if you go to the nicer, more well kept ones, it's not all just dreadlock-haired hippy white girls and horny Aussies/Indian men. I've seen super hot German, Swedish 8s walking around, and there is almost always a good amount of bangable single women. And as someone said before, everyone goes out together, if it's a big enough group, you have to be pretty unsociable, weird, or just have a generally sketch-as-fuck appearance to not get invited or rejected by a group going out. Like I said above, it's an open-minded culture, and most people are excited to meet someone new. And if not, hang in the common area, hostel bar (go for hostels with bars inside and happy hours), and just socialize that way.

In every hostel I've stayed at other than New York, I went up several points in coolness just by meeting non-New Yorkers. I'm not sure how much it helps and how much of my luck is my overall presentation, but I find that after dealing with bitch shields in NY, and the overly aggressive Jersey shore douchebags of the northeast US, everywhere else in the world so far has been a cakewalk as far as making friends and approaching ladies.

It's definitely a huge plus to have a private room as someone mentioned above, because if things go well, you want to have a comfortable place to bring back a girl from the hostel that you vibed with during the day. 

PRO-TIP: if you meet a girl during the day that you like and she seems to be kinda into you, you can make up plans about going out later, say you "met a guy and a girl who want to check out some bars later, you should come along if you haven't checked out the local area yet", and then ask for her number so you can let her know if she's interested. If you did a good job in establishing yourself as a normal, well-adjusted guy, who's probably not some crazy weirdo from who knows where, and now you're also the man who knows people and has some connections, she will almost always give you her number. Even if just to have as a backup for later if she has nothing to do. You definitely want to get the contact info of these girls when you meet them so you can locate each other later on instead of just sitting in the hostel common area and just hoping you can catch her on her way out in the evening.

PRO-TIP: be friends with and meet everybody. It's much easier to get in a talky sociable mood when you have practice and warm up, talking to a couple guys, the hostel staff, maybe some women who you wouldn't necessarily be interested in getting with, but they seem approachable and easy to talk to. The result: YOU will seem approachable and easy to talk to, and you can now branch off to whatever other girls you want, since the rejection likelihood is now much lower. Your target, hotter girl is much less likely to harshly reject the guy who is everyone's friend and well-accepted in the room, than she is to the quiet guy in the corner who nobody has spoken to or verified as member of the village yet.

If you do not have a private room, or the hostel does not offer private dorms, or you do not want to spend the money for one (btw, I stayed in $11 single rooms in South America...yes it's not as cheap as the $6 dorm beds but for me, it's still much cheaper than what I'm used to paying, so when staying outside of NY/USA, I almost always go for the single room because I'm still getting a bargain and I want the possibility to the instant, 1 minute-walk pull) So if you do not want to stay in a single dorm, or you want to stay in a 4 or 8 or 12 bed room, this is good too because it gives you yet another chance to socialize and meet people. But then you need to have either an apartment/AirBnB nearby, or you have to be able to instantly book a hotel if she's down. There's an app called HotelTonight, which I have never used, but I've heard it's good for instantly booking a room and having a place to pull and bang comfortably.

My Strategy: Book a room in a sociable, hostel that's highly rated on hostelworld.com, and have an AirBnB (a BALLER AirBnB if I am in a low COL city, relative to what I'm used to), and I can chill in the hostel, eat, drink, chill with my laptop at point during the day, meet people and get numbers, swipe around on tinder if I have a minute, and either set up dates with local women in the area for some "coffee", or figure out if you have some hot traveller girl prospect in your pipeline as well. Either way, any woman would appreciate the chance to sleep in a large cushy mattress with a handsome, pleasant man she has met, than on a stiff twin size board next to snoring, stinky strangers where the weirdo in the corner is probably peeking through your the little slit opening of the blanket fort you tried to build.

Oh man I could write a book about my time in hostels.. worked in one for a long time as well. Just wondering, theyll probably be one of the last things to open up again fully. Regarding the double booking airbnb and hostel, I never tried it, but find it a bit odd. Where do you keep your food your drink your stuff? Seems like you would always need to bounce back and forth.

For food i would normally have breakfast in the hostel, then for lunch id go to a convenience store and load up on fruit/snacks, i'd always have a bit of room in my suitcase so i'd keep it in there. For dinner i would go out to eat most of the time. I like switching between hostels and airbnb's because during the week i could stick to the hostel scene, and then when the weekend came and a lot more local girls r out, i was able to bring them back the airbnb, maybe have some people from the hostel over to pre game so i didn't have to head out alone.

If you have a private room, and your competition is staying in room with 8 other people you have a real leg up on the competition but it's not like plenty of chicks won't get banged in a big dorm room or in the bathroom, shower room or whatever space you slip her into.

I porked some girl on the floor of a hostel laundry room in the middle of the night, the door didn't lock but I wedged a doorstop under the door so it would have been a real effort to open.

The bar crawls which most hostels seem to have are often pretty decent, even if you aren't part of the particular hostel you can tag along. If you don't want to stay in a hostel but still meet the young hotties you can hang out a hostel bar, they often have a pool table and other games, some even have a dance floor. Destroy some beta at ping pong or pool and she will be gushing wet.

Some hostels are VERY cool, the staff is friendly and you'll run into the occasional hottie (many 7's). You'll meet some cool dudes too. There's a few I've stayed at that I'll remember forever. India has many great hostels, this one sticks out in my mind:

https://www.hostelworld.com/hosteldetail...nasi/84177

That being said, I've come to appreciate Airbnb's more as of late. I want my own space/kitchen. Sharing a bathroom with strangers and locking your belongings up gets tiring. Like SC said, you can always pull up to the hostel bars if you want to meet tourist girls.

Edit: Be wary of party hostels. From what I've heard they can often end up being a huge sausage fest, and you probably wont sleep well.

Never stayed in a hostel before but always wanted to just to say I've done it. What the typical age limits? Mid 30s here...

^ I'd say your experience will really depend on the specific hostel, how you look, and whether you can associate with people who might be almost two decades younger than you.

A few of the most famous party hostels (such as the ones described in the post earlier in the thread) have an age limit around 35. The vast majority don't have age limits though; when I stayed at a hostel this previous summer there were definitely some people in their 30s. So if you just want to say you've done it, you can certainly do it.

A good thing to remember is there's different kinds of hostels, e.g. party hostels aimed at young people, but also slightly more expensive (but still cheaper than most anything else) places that cater to the kind of crowd that actually wants to get some sleep. I've stayed at some slightly more high-end hostels in the past, and there would be all ages catered for. I met couples in their 40s, even some individuals in their 50s and 60s, although they really kept to themselves. But also some students in their 20s who were more of the classy, cultured type, but who still stayed in a hostel because they live on student grants/loans and don't have much money.

I was in my late 20s at the time (30 now), so I found the pace of that kind of hostel a bit more enjoyable as well. Having some decent cleanliness standards is nice too. A place like that creates a different kind of dynamic. In one case I went into an insta-date (didn't convert unfortunately) with a girl who actually kept a nice classy outfit in her bag that she changed into for the occasion. The other side of the coin is that you're less likely to end up with some crazy stories to tell about dirty sex on the shower floor.

I'd still like to stay at a real party hostel at some point, just because I missed out on that kind of experience in my teens. Being 30-something and trying to relate to the teenaged/early 20s crowd must be a challenge in itself, but still one worth taking on. As long as there isn't any age limit that you're above, why not go for it? If you can't connect with the kids at all or if it's just one big sausage fest, then you still probably spent less than $10 a night on it, so it won't be much of a waste.

A lot of hostels have an age limit of 35 - but its not really just about that 'hard' limit. The party hostels are 90% 18-25 year olds. If you can pass for late 20s, and still enjoy hanging out with people that age, have high energy game and like doing beer bongs, playing beer pong etc maybe you might enjoy it.

But otherwise, not wanting to be negative, but honestly the hostel game has probably sailed by the time you're in your mid 30s. You just aren't going to fit in socially, you'll be a weird older guy, and you also wouldn't enjoy hanging out with the kids or slumming it anyway.

Think of it as going drinking at a college bar full of undergrads by yourself. If thats something you know you'd enjoy, and would be successful at, then fire away. But otherwise...not so much.

The more chilled hostels often have higher age limits, and have more people in their 30s...but they're not really the hostel experience. They're more the original crusty hippie backpacker experience than the modern fun partying one.

Some people wish they could say they've had a foursome at the top of a Ritz-Carlton hotel but you want to tell people you lived in a hostel?

Buddy, it's not something you want to tell people. A guy pretty close to 40 will just be seen as a loser for staying in hostels. And rightly so.
Or just lie and say you've done it instead cause fuck living in some nasty hostel with a bunch of people farting, talking and snoring while you're trying to get some sleep and those places attract some skanks, criminals and really weird people.

Folks, save up more cash for your trips or don't go at all, staying in hostels isn't how travel is supposed.

lol, thanks for the laugh.  I'm 33 and have no interest in "living" in hostels, just thought it would be fun to try out for a night just for grins.  That being said, this sounds a lot like those crash pads that airline crew members pseudo live in while away from home, and I have plenty of experience in those.  I make plenty of dough to stay in airbnb and hotels, which is what I always do.

Not how it's supposed to be? Looking at human history, probably more people travelled under "hostel" conditions than in glamorous hotels. Foursomes notwithstanding.

Anyway, is it really so hard to imagine that some people might want to slum it just to try something new? Even if they could afford better? You know there are people who willingly travel on board freight ships instead of intercontinental flights, and that doesn't even save money. Doing things you normally don't do for the sheer bloody-mindedness of it adds zest to life. Meeting completely random people (ooh, they might be "criminals"!) who are also all travelling in this way for whatever reason. Just because it's not for everyone does not mean it's for no-one.

I'd be happy if I never stayed in another hostel in my life, unless it was a private room. Airbnb's are so much more comfortable especially if you can get them for a comparable price as a hostel. I'm also not much into the party hostel life anymore though.

Looking at human history, probably more people didn't use a toilet or wash their hands after taking a shit but it doesn't mean there's anything to romanticize about taking a shit on the street and wipe your ass with your left hand just for the sake of "trying something new", so I don't see how that argument holds water.

I used to stay in hostels a lot in my youth and even though I could appreciate the atmosphere of being around some adventure seekers/backpackers filled with life energy, it's just a pain in the ass overall compared to staying in a comfortable hotel or a good Airbnb.
I've had my stuff stolen, seen people getting into fights, heard an Indian guy jerking off a few meters away and there's always been weirdos and people you need to look out for no matter in which country or hostel I've been to. And your sleep is likely to be fucked up by other people because of the reasons I previously mentioned and when you go to the toilet you might have to wait in line or clean it because someone pissed on the toilet seat. Besides, how are you potentially going to bring a girl there to fuck you next to a bunch of other people? And I don't know many pretty women who prefers to fuck a guy who stays in hostels. Never seen an 8 or above staying in a hostel.

So fuck that.

If hostels were so incredible you'd see millionaires and people with money wanting to try it out to get the hostel experience but none of them do because anyone with money will choose a decent hotel or Airbnb. So my advice is to focus on getting the money first and travel later. Don't be average and you'll get more out of it.
