How to Make Friends During Your Trip
Hangout in the Common Room
The common area is where people hang out when they don’t want to stay in their rooms. You’ll probably find comfy chairs, maybe a TV, and a selection of books and guides, but most importantly, travelers talking to each other and having fun.
It’s also the place where people pre-drink before going on a night out, or play board games offered by the hostel. Most of the time, as soon as someone approaches the group, they’re invited to sit down and share a bit of themselves. It doesn’t take long to feel welcome and get to know about the other travelers around the table.
