6 Easy Tips To Win Friends in a Hostel

Hostel life is amazing! especially at night! friends, fun, and memories. The best thing about living in hotels – apart from location, ease, and price – is meeting new peoples. If you are new to the hotel, communicate with the people who’ve been there a while and you will get to know some interesting stories and cool events in the city. If you don’t know how to start making friends in hostels, this article will definitely help you. Stop being shy, let’s start!

Get Interested in People

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming more interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you” quoted Dale Carnegie in his book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. Build your interest in the person you want to be friends with. Talk with him about his interests, not yours. Start enjoying other interests!

Always Stay In A Dorm Room

This is the place where most friendships are made because you’re living in close quarters and, if you don’t talk, things are going to be awkward. You need to become savvy at judging the situation – some people will love you being full-on and being instant best friends. While others will be scared by this approach, especially as you have to sleep in the same room later. Just a friendly hello and quick question (see point 4) should give you all the indicators you need.

Enjoy Social Events

There is always an event or some outing going around in the hotels, you can sign up for. Go out, check the notice boards and ask at reception. All the hostels usually have some sort of bar crawl or a walking tour to get people socializing. Consider these events as an opportunity for meeting people and knowing them.

Start The Conversation!

When you meet someone in the hostel you can open the conversation by asking for Wifi Password, or the way to the library, or what’s good in the canteen today? It’s simple! these phrases are easy starters of a conversation. Then, you can bring a group of people together you have previously met separately. In this manner, everyone will be thankful because now you are their opportunity of meeting new people.

Don’t Hideaway In Your Bunk

Laying down in your bed while reading a book or listening to some cool music with your headphones will not make your friends. You will deliver the wrong impression and look introvert. Get up, get out on your skateboard, even if you need to carry a book with you outside. Maybe, the book could be a conversation starter!

Act Confidently

If you have found someone you’d like to spend time with. Ask them if them from some activity like checking out a monument together. And when someone asks you out, accept! You will enjoy traveling and unpredictable adventures with the people you meet.…

When the worlds’ first scheduled flight took off with a paying passenger in 1914, no one imagined that people would embrace this form of transport.

Air travel is now commonplace; people fly to school, visit family, on business, and vacation spots and most have one goal in common. To travel as economically as possible. Everyone wants a good deal. The following are some tips for booking cheap flights.

Plan and Book Early

It is usually advantageous to purchase your ticket early; at least 3 months before your date of intended departure. This is to secure lower-priced seats before they are sold out. Early bookings are especially recommended for travel during the holiday seasons. It is not uncommon for fares to rise 3 weeks before departure. 

An added advantage of an early booking is that you have a better chance of obtaining the seat of your choice.

Try to work with Flexible Dates and Times

You will find that travel on weekdays is considered ‘off-peak’ and weekend travel is ‘peak’ when it comes to fare levels. Hence, plan your departures accordingly. Compare the available fares for both weekdays and weekend travel before you settle on specific travel dates.

In addition, check out the fares for early morning departures and late-night ones. Since they are generally unpopular times to travel, you may be able to obtain lower airfares.

Choose a Budget Airline

One tip for booking cheap flights is to travel on a budget airline. These are carriers that offer limited on-board services and charge extra for services such as check-in and carry-on baggage, food, and the use of credit cards.

Budget airlines offer cheap flights; however, they may fly in and out of smaller airports which may be further away from the main urban areas. You may need to consider the cost involved in getting to the center of the city.

Book connecting flights 

Sometimes fares are lower if you skip the non-stop flight to your destination and select an option with stops en route. This may involve travel on one or more airline partners, and the journey may last a couple of hours longer. However, the saving may be worth it in the long run.

Flight Search Websites

Do not limit your search to a single website as this will narrow your options. Not all airlines subscribe to the same website. It is, therefore, a good idea to investigate fares on two or three of the leading flight search websites to get a feel of the available fares during the period of time you wish to travel.

Compare Inclusive Package Rates

If you are traveling on vacation, likely you will require hotel rooms, transport, and sightseeing tours at your destination. You may find that the cost of an all-inclusive package may work out cheaper than flight only, therefore it is an option worth investigating.

When air travel began, fares were high. Few could afford this mode of travel; however reasonable priced tickets have made it possible for more and more people to sample the joys of travel within their budgets.…
