Hostel life brings out the real you and gives you extremely valuable memories which you'll keep with yourself for life. While some of the reasons bring out the most terrible results but however most of them are immense and priceless.
Connections to remember:
Friends who eat together, stay together. Isn’t it? You eventually don’t care about the cleanliness of the hostel or the internet anymore because here you find all sorts of amazing people who not only teach you the unending list of funny, fundamental lessons but also don’t let you feel homesick. And yes, some connections made here are really worth a lifetime.
"Victory comes from finding opportunities in problems." Truly, words to live by. Opportunities are endless. You are allowed to go about exploring numerous fields that you have never set foot in before, and the most important part is that this is even more exciting amongst new people in new places. Find new people, new friends, new places. No one is gonna stop you. Getting to know people has a lot of positive impacts on your mind, making a friend or two while settling in a new place won't hurt at all!
What’s right and what's wrong:
Being with new people at a new place is altogether a great experience but it also helps to enhance our subconscious. One thing you’ll find in every hostel you stay is free advice. By staying together, you always find a friend who’s willing to help you whether they are some weird questions or a damn confusing life. And whereas some situations you face here are quite self-explanatory.
So, this is one of the most important things we do not get being at home. In a hostel, you are accountable for almost everything from getting up in the morning, to having meals, washing clothes, and whatnot. Hostel life gives us the flexibility to fly in the open and seek things you couldn’t pursue when at home.
Value of Time and Money:
This is one of the biggest reasons to live a hostel life. You tend to learn a lot by just managing your time as it is the key to gain anything and everything in life. Whatever you want to do in life is possible only if you know to manage your time around it. From the gossip sessions to all the other activities you are required to do at your hostel, You eventually learn to take some time to study. Having said this, you also have to value your money because money is something that is quite limited while living in a hostel, and yet you have so much to spend it on. Some students may find this chase of saving and spending money to be fun, for others IT'S A NIGHTMARE. Good or Bad it is a necessary life skill you should know and there are no two ways around it.
Hostel life gives us a very different yet remarkable exposure from making new friends to adjusting to a whole new environment, doing things on our own, or taking initiatives. This whole new freedom is altogether a different exposure, and yet the feeling of distress, frustration, and heartbreaks add salt to this curry of life.
