Traveling on the cheap often means staying in hostels. This can be great if you’re a social bug, love getting to know strangers, are bursting to share your travel experiences, and adore making international friends. Staying in hostels comes with its own rule book, though. From navigating the social lounge, getting on with other lodgers, and feeling comfortable in staying in different places; staying in hostels isn’t always easy-peasy. So, below, I’ll give you some of the best tips for ice breaker questions, making friends, navigating shared facilities, and making your stays in hostels as comfy as can be. Let’s get stuck in!
Ice Breaker Questions
If you’re the social type, which is a given if you’re a hostel-style traveler, you’ll need some good conversation starters and ice breaker questions to open those doors to friendship.
Of course, there are always the basic questions travelers get asked: where have you just been? Where are you going next? Where are you from? Those questions, as a traveler, are the ones you’ll constantly be asked. But, the best questions to ask when you’re staying in a hostel, are fewer questions and are more like statements.
After initial introductions and basic questions are done, if they seem to be happy to talk, try this to get the conversation going. To really get someone drawn into a conversation, first, share a small story about your recent experiences while traveling – did something funny happen to you while you were trekking? Do you have an embarrassing story from the last hostel you stayed in? Maybe there’s something you’re a little confused about, could you ask for their advice on the topic?
There’s nothing like opening up to someone else to get them engaged in a conversation. Seriously, try it!

The pandemic of COVID-19 has brought recession on multiple fronts- financial, economic, and social. Having affected nearly all of the industries that you can name, it has halted the previous normal and forced to adapt to new norms and changes which will take time to get streamlined into the new life. For the travelers having the spirit of viewing new places, it surely would have been a great blow and must be very tough to keep up those urges under control.
But beyond that, the industry of hospitality has suffered the most severe losses. With almost no booking during the pandemic and burning of cash for the infrastructural updates as per the new safety norms, it surely is an uphill task for the owners. However, as the saying goes by that the show must go on, similarly with the unlock guidelines under the execution of many nations, the hotels are opening up for the guests with high levels of security. This article discusses in more detail about the major query of the hour- Is it safe to stay in hotels amidst the pandemic of COVID-19?
The major points of concern
As a guest opting for hotel stay due to business purpose, it is obvious for you to ponder on the following points that might question your safety in the stay:
- The hotels being a public place would be having a lot many people coming from outside and thus multiple touchpoints. Therefore, you might be safe within your rooms that are sanitized regularly, but what about the lobbies, elevators, and in-house restaurants that would be touched by multiple people?
- Even the housekeeping coming into the room would be commuting from their homes to the hotel daily for the duty and thus there would be very high chances of them carrying germs
