5 Mistakes to Avoid when Selecting a Hostel


Staying in a hostel is altogether a different experience that will stay with you for lifelong. But overlooking certain things can also make it the worst experience. Choosing the right hostel obviously requires some research but once you are able to locate the perfect one, you will certainly make your trip a memorable one. Especially if you haven’t stayed in a hostel before, you must be extra careful when deciding which one to go for. Thus, to help you with this, we have outlined common mistakes that people do while choosing their accommodation:

A Bad Location

Quite often people choose a hostel just by looking at its offerings but avoid its location. Well, believe or not, but the location truly matters! Choosing a hostel that is in proximity to all the places you would like to visit in Perth, will immensely save your time and travel cost. You must see if your hostel has cafes, tourist spots or markets nearby. Other than that, you must also see the sight view of your hostel for a better experience. A lot of people go for a hostel with a bad location considering cheap price, but regret later.

Going for a too Cheap or too Expensive Hostel 

Many of us think the expensive, the better. While there are also many who look for cheap hostels to save bucks. But remember, both the situation can cost you! There is a big possibility that if you get a hostel at a too cheap price, it may not have good facilities that will completely ruin your experience. On the other hand, if you go for a hostel that is too expensive, you might end up spending much more than you require. Thus, you should pick the one that has moderate prices with cool amenities. 

Not Checking out on Important Features 

A good location with a moderate price is not enough to pick the right hostel. Many people make this mistake, and forget to check the list of important features in the hostel as they assume that generally, the hostels offer almost the same set of features. However, it is very important to check all the amenities your hostel is providing. Do check for a common living room to connect with other people, television, bar, help desk, kitchen, free morning breakfast, locker facility, and other important stuff. If you neglect to check on this, you might face various problems during your stay in the hostel. 

Skip the Google Reviews

Do not forget to read the reviews! A lot of people make a mistake by not reading the reviews, where hostels can easily mislead them. Thus, to get genuine feedback on the hostel, you must do some research online and check the hostel’s website and reviews. As many people share their hostel experience, you can be pretty sure to get a genuine idea about the hostel where you intend to stay. Any bad feedback on their services or any missing facility can be spotted right in the visitor’s reviews.  

Overlooking the Dorm Condition 

Last but not least, do not overlook the condition of your dorm! While you check out on other facilities of the hostel, you must also give a look at the dorm’s condition. Whether you have a small dorm size, large dorm or a private room, you must inspect the cleanliness and facilities. Overlooking the condition might bring you in a situation where you have used sheets, no comfortable beds or dirty surroundings. 

Now that you know how making these mistakes can lead you to a problem, make sure to check on these important things and do not get fooled! Paying attention to these details can certainly make your staying experience memorable and worthy, while you savor the other luxuries of your trip.
