Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep in a Hostel

Hostels are known for their affordability, social atmosphere, and convenience. However, sleeping in a shared dormitory with strangers can be challenging. From snorers to early birds, there are many factors that could disturb your sleep. In this post, we’ll share some tips and tricks on how to sleep well in hostels.

Choose the Right Hostel

Not all hostels are created equal when it comes to providing a good night’s rest. Here are some things to consider when selecting a hostel:


Choose a hostel located away from noisy streets or nightlife areas.


Read reviews from previous guests about the quality of beds and noise level in the dorms.


Check if the hostel provides earplugs, eye masks or other items that could help you sleep better.

Pack Smartly for Sleep Comfort

What you pack can make or break your sleeping experience in hostels. Here are some essentials:

An Eye Mask

An eye mask will block out light so you won’t be disturbed by other people turning on lights during late-night returns or early-morning departures.


Earplugs block out unwanted noise like snoring roommates or outside street sounds.

A Neck Pillow

A neck pillow helps support your head while sitting up reading before bed as not all hostel beds come with comfortable pillows.
