Hostel Etiquette Things to Do and Not to Do

Staying in a hostel is a lot of fun when compared to hotels. You get to meet new people, do activities together, and go out traveling and more. However, there are rules that need to be followed when staying in a hostel. If this is your first time, then these are a few etiquettes you must know and follow them at all times.


  1. Maintain Silence – Regular travelers know why it is important to maintain silence. It’s alright to talk to fellow travelers and strike a conversation during the daytime. However, after 9 or 10pm, you need to maintain silence as few travelers may be sleeping.
  2. Lights Off at Night – There are times where you may feel like reading a novel or trying to find a lost key. During such an event, try to use the flashlight of your phone rather that switching on the lights and disturbing others.
  3. Keep the Toilet Clean – It’s not hard to understand this statement. Make sure you clean the toilet after your use and also make sure to tell your roommates to do the same.
  4. No intimacy inside the Room – There are times where you may be attracted to your fellow female or male traveler. You can be intimate inside the bathroom if you can’t resist each other by keeping the door closed and making less noise.

These are the rules you need to follow during your stay in a hostel. You are definitely bound to have a great time in some of the finest Thailand hostels during your stay.
