Hostels aren’t exactly synonymous with comfort, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying to make the best of your stay. Many budget travelers turn to this type of accommodation to save money, and our useful tips will help you put a comfy and cozy twist on your next stay.

Pick Carefully

Not all hostels are created equal and they don’t provide the same kind of comfort. Reading the reviews before making your booking is the best way to remove bad apples. Pay extra close attention to what previous guests said about comfort, and go for a hostel with comfy beds that offer privacy curtains.

Book a Private Room

If staying at a shared dorm simply isn’t your thing, booking a private room is always an option. You’ll get your own comfy bed and quieter atmosphere, so it’s worth putting in some extra money during a long trip, even if it’s only for a day or two.

Pack Smart

A couple of small accessories go a long way and can make your hostel stay extra cozy, even when you’re traveling light. Earplugs and an eye mask can make a huge difference at a busy hostel because they’ll make it easier to deal with noisy guests.
