Here you area few tips for staying safe and enjoying your hostel stay.
Use a lockable bag. Having a lock on your bag that is only opened through number combination is your first go-to measure to keep your personal items safe. Just don’t forget to put them back in the bag and lock it before you go out.
Carry locks of several sizes. Some hostels will give you a locker to keep your stuff in. use one of your locks to keep your items safe inside the locker.
Have a small waist bag to keep your money, passport and important documents with you wherever you go.
Accompany headlight. It may seem awkward and unnecessary as there will always be electricity but it would be useful for late night readings when your roommates just want the lights dimmed for a good sleep.
Also carry eye bands and ear plugs for when it is your time to sleep and activity is on the rise in the room.
Carry bed sheets as you would only want to sleep on a sheet you guarantee is clean.
Don’t forget to accompany travel adaptor that works as a adaptor too to protect you electronic devices.
