Yes each hostel will have their own set of rules and regulations. That’s a given. But, you see, there’s a certain unwritten hostel etiquette you need to follow when sleeping in dorms all over the world to avoid being THAT traveller.

Yes, granted people can’t help things like snoring but it’s actually the other stuff I have gripes about. The stuff that’s just simply disrespectful to the other travellers that are in the room with you that night.

These are the 12 things you should never do in hostels. From a tired, admittedly grumpy, backpacker.
