Hostel Etiquette

09 Dec

At Hostal Tamarindo in Medellin, Colombia we feel is a good idea to be courteous and follow some basic guidelines when sharing with strangers in hostels.


  • Respect house rules.
  • Respect fellow travelers.
  • Move around quietly while others are sleeping.
  • The food in the cupboards and the fridge isn’t free. Take what you like from the free bins only.
  • Try to keep clean. A clean body odor and a fresh breath make getting along a lot easier.
  • Clean up after yourself. A clean kitchen is a pleasure to be in.
  • Limit shower time to five minutes. Others may be waiting to use the bathroom and saving water is important.
  • Keep an open mind. Everyone is different.
  • Use closet space and bins provided. An empty bed is not your bed.
