I constantly hear the following:
Aren’t hostels dirty? (Not these days…)
Hostels are just full of drunk teenagers (Maybe you’re in the wrong hostel)
I’m too old to stay in a hostel
Are mixed dorms safe? (Here’s the answer)

There are so many myths that surround hostels in Kenya, so I thought it was time to set the record straight and share with you the things that makes hostel life great!

  1. You will make friends for life!
  2. Some of your new friends will be international… so you will always have a couch to sleep on!
  3. Falling in love happens a lot
  4. …and more often than not your heart will get broken when you or they move on to the next country
  5. Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye…! Saying goodbye to new friends on a daily basis becomes normal
  6. Hello, hello, hello…! Making new friends daily in a space of a few hours also becomes normal
  7. Sightseeing all day on 4 hours sleep becomes an essential skill
  8. You will hear the same five questions from every person you meet.
  9. You will ask everyone you meet those same five questions
  10. You will forget everyone’s answers to these questions
  11. But you will remember exactly what those people did after too many shots of booze last night
  12. You will meet at least one creeper
  13. But you will love the staff! 😉
  14. …and you will want to be part of their little hostel family
  15. There will be one member of staff who will have slept with 75% of the guests
  16. You’re probably going to want to work and live in at least one hostel
  17. You will hear people having sex
  18. Someone will probably hear you having sex
  19. Everyone at breakfast will know you’ve had sex
  20. The Wifi will be shit
  21. As will the showers
  22. As will all those people you meet who think they can play guitar
  23. You will meet someone you hate more than you’ve ever hated someone before
  24. Free breakfast…hallelujah!
  25. Stained sheets. It happens
  26. Clothes, everywhere
  27. Getting lost trying to find your hostel is a right of passage
  28. You will see the most impressive use of small spaces… 8 beds in a toilet-sized room… no problem!
  29. You will learn an endless number of drinking games
  30. You may cry when you leave
