  • The question that I'm going to try and answer is: How do you Make Friends if you're travelling alone at a hostel?

  • Hostels aren't always as empty as the one that I'm showing you right now. It's almost two in the morning.

  • I just got off a crazy sleeper bus last night, napped pretty much all day because I didn't get to sleep last night, so my schedule's all messed up.

  • But my advice for making friends (when you're not the only one awake) is...

  • 1. Try and do something that I'm still going to try and do tomorrow, which is if there's a communal breakfast or something, BE THERE!

  • That's a cool way to meet people at the start of the day. Something about eating together...

  • you might just ask the person next to you, "What are you going to do today?" and they'll say

  • "Oh, we're going down to the museum or we're going to go down to the local market, do you want to come?"

  • Half the time it's just that easy. Next thing you know you've got friends to hang out with for the day.

  • You might have friends to hang out with for the whole week!

  • It's actually not that uncommon for people to make friends, kick it off, and end of traveling to the next city with those people.

  • Even adjusting your travel plans to make that work.

  • Which might sound kind of funny to people who have never done it before,

  • but it's surprisingly easy, because as long as you have an extended period of time to travel with,

  • you can allow that to shape your travels however you want it to.

  • The spontaneity of meeting someone you get along with, and then continuing to travel with them, is pretty awesome.

  • The last city I was in, in Cambodia, me and Nari (the girl I was traveling with before)

  • we met these two Russians and they showed us how to hitch-hike.

  • I have hitch-hiked before, but never in a place like Cambodia and that was a fun experience to be a part of.

  • They ended up going their separate ways in a couple of days,

  • but we had new travel friends that I never would have imagined.

  • They barely spoke a word of English and had a little flask of liquor that they put in their morning coffees, and let me taste.

  • True, true Russians! They were awesome. Shout out to you, Misa and Mila.

  • Just put yourself in positions where you can meet people.

  • It's simple advice, but it really is the best advice.

  • If you don't have much to do, if you don't have much planned, just chill in a common area like this.

  • Even if you just have your laptop, doing a bit of work, or facebooking, or whatever you have to do.

  • People will sit down next to you, and you'll start talking.

  • At nighttime people are usually hanging out drinking. It's not socially awkward or weird or anything to just join them and have a drink and introduce yourself.

  • If that seems like a lot to ask, I mean, I know everyone's different and some people can be a bit shy, and that might seem strange.

  • You probably won't have to, someone will probably introduce themselves to you first.

  • I wasn't the most outgoing guy, believe it or not. Even though I'm making these videos here, I was never outgoing when I started traveling.

  • But the experience of meeting people over and over when you're alone on the road really breaks you out of that shell pretty quickly.

  • And on the flip side, if you see someone else who's hanging out on their own, you'll want to go say hello to them.

  • Not to be creepy or whatever, but just to make them feel included, because you know what it's like to be in that situation.

  • Something about hostels, it's like, we're all from so many different places

  • with so many different stories, that meeting people just kind of happens naturally.

  • It's like the first day of school, you know, the person you sit down next to, if you say hi to them.

  • They could end up being your best friend for the next four years of school, you know?

  • The person you sit next to, or the person who ends up sleeping in the bed underneath of you. If you just say hi, you could be good friends.

  • So I hope that advice helps you guys out a little bit. Anyone who might be worried about what it's like to make friends...

  • that's the least of your concerns.

  • Worry about bedbugs and pickpockets and stuff like that. But there's always friends to be made at a cool hostel.

  • My name's Dan, I'm from The New Travel Blog. If you want to know more about how I travel for cheap, you can definitely subscribe........

  • or not! That's really up to you.

  • This guy's got to go get some sleep. But I will be back, with more Hostel Questions!

The question that I'm going to try and answer is: How do you Make Friends if you're travelling alone at a hostel?
