Finding backpacker hostels – often not so easy Often, backpackers are perceived as not being very demanding when it comes to accommodation. Basically, there is some truth in this. A real backpacker doesn’t need expensive hotels where most of the equipment is not used anyway. After all, you want to experience and get to know the city. But even as a backpacker, you have certain requirements for your own accommodation while traveling, especially with regard to your own safety and health. Not all hostels are the same, and not all rooms are the same. After all, the own accommodation is also for backpackers a piece of home for a while.
What makes a good backpacker hostel?Typical backpacker tourism has its origins in faraway places like Asia and Australia. But more and more travelers (also in Germany) undertake even city trips or short-term tours with only a backpack as luggage. The choice of accommodation is immense, especially in big cities like Berlin. In addition to numerous hotels, there are also many, often smaller hostels, which are interesting alternatives, especially for backpackers. But what is important when choosing the right hostel? We have compiled what we consider to be the most important tips for choosing a good backpacker hostel:
Location and accessibilityTravelers who are mainly backpacking are primarily interested in getting to know the area, the country or the respective city. One of the most important tips when choosing a suitable backpacker hostel is therefore to look for accommodations that are as centrally located as possible and offer good connections to the local public transport network.
Choice of different roomsNot everyone wants to have to share their room with other people when traveling, not even in a hostel. Especially if you are traveling as a couple or in groups, there should be an appropriate selection of rooms available in the accommodation. In addition to the hostel-typical shared room, it should also be possible to book a double room and, if possible, a single room.
Common areas and activitiesBesides the room for your own bed, probably one of the most important points in a hostel is the common area. If you consciously decide against the supposed amenities in a hotel, you usually want to meet other people in the hostel and be able to exchange ideas with them. Even better, of course, if the hostel also offers communal activities where you can get to know other guests.
Internet situation in the hostelNowadays, hardly anything works without the Internet. This is also true when traveling. After all, you want to be able to share your travel experiences with relatives or friends who have stayed at home. Nowadays, every hostel should offer free WLAN. However, the quality of the Wi-Fi network is also important. Quite a few hostel networks are far too small and therefore break down at peak times. The resulting discontent among guests can be prevented in advance with a small investment and a little know-how.
The small but subtle differencesWhether in a hotel or hostel, it is often not the room or the furnishings that make you feel at home. It is rather the small things that make you realize that you are welcome as a guest. Whether it is the thoughtful distribution of sockets in your own room, free earplugs to find peace even with snoring roommates or the possibility to print boarding passes or tickets for excursions if necessary. All this and especially these little things in combination with a friendly and helpful team of hosts in the hostel are what ultimately make the difference between a once-in-a-lifetime accommodation and a good hostel to which you like to come back.
