How to Make Friends During Your Trip
Don’t Forget the Hostel Staff (and the Locals)
When you stay in a hostel with a great team, it can make all the difference. Most of the time it’s comprised of a mix of local people and passing travelers who sometimes live in the hostel. They’re usually very welcoming and will go out of their way so you can have a nice time.
More often than not, if they consider you to be a good friend, they might invite you to their personal life and get you to know their friends and family. So not only will you make a new friend, but also have a chance to experience the day-to-day of the locals.
