It’s hard to escape.

Here are ten of the most annoying things backpackers do in a hostel dorm room:

Use the Snooze Alarm - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Use the Snooze Alarm

It’s bad enough when a fellow backpacker has to wake up at 7 in the morning. But it’s worse when they set their alarm for seven in the morning but keep hitting the snooze button until 9, forcing you to wake up to their blaring techno music ringtone every ten minutes when you should be sleeping off an inevitable hangover.

 

Borrow Your Toiletries - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Borrow Your Toiletries

Just because you left your shampoo in the shower doesn’t make it fair game. Don’t you hate when you go back to take a shower the next day and your conditioner bottle is almost empty and your soap is covered in someone else’s hair?

 

Get Sick - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Get Sick

Whether it’s a hacking cough that keeps the whole dorm room up all night, snotty tissues falling from the top bunk onto your bed, or someone with altitude sickness puking all over the ensuite toilet, a sick backpacker in your dorm room is an annoying backpacker in your dorm room.

 

Make Noise - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Make Noise

Backpackers make a lot of noise and they do so at the worst possible times: in the middle of the night when you’re trying to sleep, in the morning when you’re trying to sleep, in the afternoon when you’re trying to take a nap. They rustle their bags, they bang their lockers, they have conversations. Inevitably, someone in your dorm room will be making noise at all times.

Turn on the Light

Along with making noise, backpackers also turn on the light at the worst possible times: in the middle of the night when you’re trying to sleep, in the morning when you’re trying to sleep, in the afternoon when you’re trying to take a nap.

 

Sit on Your Bed - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Sit on Your Bed

You return to your dorm room only to find that some sweaty, dirty, un-showered backpacker is sitting on your bed having a conversation or clipping his toenails. Usually because he has a top bunk and can’t be bothered to climb a few steps. “Sorry,” he’ll say as he moves to make room for you, leaving behind a sweaty dent in your sheets.

 

Snore - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Snore

There is always someone who snores. Always.

 

Spread Out - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Spread Out

When staying in a hostel dorm you want to be able to move around, get to your bed, and get to your locker. But some people don’t realize the space is communal and spread the fuck out. I’m talking stuff everywhere, like their backpack exploded.

 

Use Your Towel - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Use Your Towel

You’ve hung up your towel in the bathroom to dry, not as an invitation for someone else to use it to dry off after a shower. Or, worse, when they realize there’s no toilet paper left…

 

Have Sex - 10 Annoying Things Backpackers Do in a Dorm Room

Have Sex

There’s nothing worse than a backpacker having sex in your dorm room. Especially when it’s not with you.
