If you’re trying to explore the world without breaking the bank, hostels will always be there to welcome you. They’re the most budget-friendly accommodation option on the market, but sleeping at a hostel dorm can take a toll on your sleep, especially if you book a bed in these three types of hostels.

Party Hostels

Party hostels are all fun and games if partying happens to be the sole purpose of your travels, but they’re best avoided if that’s not the case. These types of hostels have a busy bar or nightclub on the premises, so the noise could get in the way of your good night’s sleep.

Wrong Location

Picking centrally located hostels usually feels like a great idea because all the major attractions are at your fingertips, but it doesn’t always work. Some of these hostels are located on busy streets with heavy traffic, and if you had the misfortune of booking one, at least try to get a bed that’s far from the window.

No Privacy Curtains

If you have trouble falling asleep with lights on, but still can’t afford a private room, hostel dorms with privacy curtains are your best bet. Check the photos and reviews before making a booking to make sure that your hostel offers them.
