How a good hostel - Pick
Good hostels are always hard to come by. Hostels have more with the people than the physical place of stay to do there. I have spent in landfills, where I had fun because of the people there, and was amazing, beautiful hostels that bore me to death.
While hosteling about people is to stay in one place, which is a white traveler's needs always better because it improves the experience travel. When trying to get a good hostel, here is my advice on what to consider:

Cheaper is not better

budget a natural tendency of the cheapest thing to go to. However, do not try to save a dollar store only one dollar. Super-cheap are often messy, uncomfortable beds, showers dirty, and the pillows thin as a supermodel. Make a buck or two for beautiful and clean digs. Your body will thank you.

Get breakfast

One thing that I hate in Europe is hosteling about that breakfast is often toast, eggs and coffee. And it starts at 7 am (and ends too early)! I'm not sure who the travelers are that they know, but I have never been so early every known wake up, even for a good breakfast. Look for a place with a decent breakfast (that is, more than toast) or at least one that begins and ends when people are actually awake (breakfast, which usually start at 08.00, go late). Breakfast is also a great way to load on snacks, to the rest of the day, thus cutting down your food budget.

check out

never remain later in a hostel with a check-out time before 10am. The best hostels have 11:00 checkout times, and the really good you can at noon checkout. Sleep is valuable on the road, because you rarely get enough of it. Hostels with late check-out times understand that and are often more relaxed and Chiller environments. There's just something wrong about a hostel ask packed in the morning and to be out so early.
On the flip side of this, I like hostels, have flexible check-ins. Many do not be before 14:00 Upon check-in, but I like the that say "OK, the bed is ready. Come in now!"

button showers

Tell simply no to pushbutton showers! They are annoying and often have no water pressure. You do not want to turn off the water mid-soaping. My rule of thumb is that if a hostel with a push button shower, I did not stay there.
A hostel bathroom


It is surprising, but I've actually been in hostels, the lockers or that you do not have the cost of it. At the present time deposit should be standard. You should not pay for the security. This is a deal-breaker for me, especially since I travel with electronics.

Free Internet

While the Internet is a must for all travelers, a hostel offers free Wi-Fi and computer terminals makes life much easier.

A bar

bars are not a non-starter, and there are many wonderful hostels, without them, but they make a great place to socialize with other hostel guests. Usually when a hostel has a bar, they attach great importance to ensure that people are there to stay fun, interaction, and to be festive.

Common area

If the hostel does not have a bar, it should have a large common area. The best hostels are those which give a place the travelers to hang together and socialize. The public spaces facilitate interaction and have to take help solo travelers lighter people. The best hotels I have ever stayed still had a great common area.

Organised activities

Really good hostels also organize activities such as hiking, bar crawls, BBQs, or anything else that gets people together.

knowledgable staff

staff make any business, and if I find the hostel the staff helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, I like that place much better. A hostel is like a home, and you want the people glad to welcome you like a long lost family member. I have never understood why hostels do not realize that a hostel to be is not to be as cheap accommodation, it comes to a warm environment to create.
A hostel does not have any of those things I have listed, but it should have the majority. not understand a hostel without most of these things, who are guests or what they want. I get that many people come through hostels with a variety of needs. A hostel does not have to be perfect. I want a clean kitchen, but it's not a deal-breaker. Dorm room not locked? That's what is a locker. Hostel showers are always dirty, so I wear flip flops in it. I'm not looking for a 5-star resort, just basic safety and comfort.
What makes Hostels big people are, and even the worst hostels will be great when you meet good people. But the people to remove them from the equation, I look for hostels that have some of the above qualities in them. Hostels, who know what you want as a traveler, are there to improve your travel experience, not only from you take money in exchange for a bed. I'd rather stay in one place, to make sure I sought to have a good time.
And these places to find? I read on! If I'm picking hostels, I see read, pictures, amenities, star ratings on sites like Hostel, Hostelz and HostelBookers. See what your traveling companions say. The consensus is going to be exactly the right thing
