Not only that, but hostels have created a unique space for endless opportunities for a fun fling, or two. After all, traveling should be filled with new experiences.
New surroundings, new 5 Star Hostels, or any other type of hostels, new friends – why not add hostel sex to the list of new endeavors?
But stop right there! It’s important to remember that your fun isn’t necessarily going to be everyone else. After all, sex is a part of the daily travel life.
Just have a look at this summary of 10 sex-statues around the world or these 14 temples in India with some unexpected monuments to show.
Let’s pack the condoms and have a look then at the 4 do’s and don’t-s of indulging in hostel sex. From London, Rome to Paris to Tokyo to Buenos Aires.
Under no circumstances it’s a good idea to hook up in the dorm. There’s some people out there that will get really mad, and may even interrupt you rudely.
Either you interrupt and tell them it isn’t acceptable now, or wait ‘til the morning to turn their cheeks pink.
The bottom line is that no one wants to hear it, and no matter how quiet you think you’re being; chances are everyone can hear you. Seriously…you are not as quiet as you think you are…
It does not matter if you are staying in a 4-bed dorm or a 16-bed dorm or even bigger, sex in dorms is a bad idea.
However: You could wait until everybody left. Most likely hostels are empty after 11am, since most people head out for the day. But remember, that there is a cleaning boy or lady coming in at one point.
Not only is the poor person below you anticipating a collapsed bed, but you risk your sheets falling over the side and disappearing.
This is your smartest idea when you are about to have sex in hostels. A private room is your best bet, no doubt. Of course, it is kind of awkward to crawl up the reception desk and ask for a private room. Plus, when traveling on a budget, this will burn a whole in your wallet.
Assuming you’re both traveling on a tight budget: the rooftop, shower, even the cleaning cupboard – if it is private (lockable) and after hours, then your naughty antics shouldn’t upset other hostel-goers.
Those that have tried it suggest aiming for the early hours of the morning when you’re less likely to get caught.
Would you really want to reminisce about your rendezvous as you prepare breakfast on the same table the next morning…?
Plus, the chance to get caught is quite high. Do not risk it, the hostel could even throw you out for this.
Forums suggest that staff would prefer you to book a private room, and they don’t care if that means asking them at 2am.
Perhaps you’ll even get a discount as after all, they’d rather sell the room cheaper than not at all. Ask for it!
For those on a (really) tight budget, stick with the shower – staff can easily redirect shocked guests to other facilities, and don’t have to worry about extending their cleaning hours in the morning, if you catch our drift.
