Ah hostels. Always full of the weirdest and most wonderful people! Well, most of the time. It seems that no matter if you're in Pinar del Río, Prague or Phuket the same backpacker archetypes can be found. Or at least I believe so. Here are the 21 types of backpackers you'll find in every hostel!
Having worked in a popular Dublin hostel for more than 7 years from the age of 17 I have had many, many great days & nights. And the odd shite day too, but mostly a lot of the best times of my life so far were directly hostel related. There's been plenty of blogs and articles about hostel life, rehashing the same observations & advice but very few if any (I've never actually found any but I must assume there's a few) relate life inside the hostel from a staff point of view.
