The hostel is an integral part of a student’s life in which they taste life from a completely different perspective. They learn they grow, and they step out of their comfort zone to try new things, meet new people and make new friends.
Knowing all of these, stepping out of their home and leaving their parents in search of growth can be mind-bending, uneasy, and scary! So here are some tips that one can keep in mind before starting your journey of a Hostel life!
It’s not a Hotel !
A hostel is not a hotel, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be treated as a customer for your requirements. Instead, it’ll be you your own, who has to figure out your daily tasks and schedule a routine not to let your physical and mental health disrupt.
Do not forget to carry your essentials such as mouthwash, soap, face wash, shampoo, toothpaste, and any necessities concerned with your hygiene until you find a nearby location to acquire/purchase them.
Know whom to befriend
You won’t be living with your parents, as safe as it was with them, in a hostel you would be an independent person who has to choose your circle of friends wisely. Surrounding yourself with the right people helps you lead towards the right path.
Do not carry unnecessary apparel. Carry only the ones that you might require there along with the necessities i.e., inners (bottoms and top), nightwear, shorts/leggings, sliders/slippers, shoes, and accessories like watch, wallet/purse.
Almost everything is shared.
