Staying at a hostel is a great way to save money on your next trip, but there’s a couple of things you should always bring along after booking a room because it’s highly unlikely they’ll be provided.
If you’re going to be using a shared bathroom during your hostel stay, bringing a pair of slippers or flip flops along is always a good idea.
Hostels that provide free toiletries are extremely rare, so make sure to pack tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel before catching your flights.
You can find towels at any hostel, but you’ll usually have to pay a fee to rent one. They tend to be pretty pricy, so why not save some extra money by bringing your own?
Rooms in hostel dorms are always the cheapest, and they usually come with security lockers where you can store your stuff. Bring your own padlock for safety, because they’re rarely free of charge.
