Smart Things to Pack While Staying in a Hostel


Packing is probably the first thing we need to do when it comes to traveling and staying in a hostel. Hostel packing is a little different compared to your normal packing. However, that doesn’t mean it is complicated. If staying in a hostel is your first-time, then consider bringing these items that will help you.

  1. Noise Cancellation Headphones – This item is a reliable one when it comes to taking long hours of flight or bus ride. Moreover, this item allows you to enjoy listening to your favorite tunes or watching a movie. While at hostels, you will also be able to focus more on your work by putting them on your ears.
  2. Earplugs and Facemasks – These are 2 handy items that cannot be left at home. Earplugs and facemasks allow you to sleep comfortable whether it’s during the day or night.
  3. Padlock – A padlock should have been mentioned as the first important item to bring along to a hostel. This item is very useful when it comes to keeping your belongings safe. Just ensure you bring a padlock that has a number mechanism instead of lock and key mechanism.
  4. Quick Dry Towel – A quick dry towel is essential especially if you’re traveling to a country where the weather is humid. This item is very helpful and easy to carry. Keep in mind though that the size of this towel shouldn’t be massive. Small to medium size is enough.

These are some of the items you should carry along while staying in Phuket hostels.
