Hostel guests using laptops till 3am

Post by shnoukieBRO » Fri Dec 06, 2019 4:44 pm

I'm asking for urgent opinions please.

If some hostel dorm guest is using a laptop till 3am and the brightness is irritating another person, is he in the wrong or is the other for not wearing an eye mask?

Kinda think if your staying in some $3 dorm
it is what it is

True Richard.

I tried to reason with the person but they were arrogant and stubborn. I believe it was an old Israeli. They actually thought it was rude me even asking them at 2 am to dim it down. I mean what a jerk!

I had a similar problem once when I was living in Taiwan. I was a long term resident of Taipei Hostel - it was cheap, centrally located and had a decent kitchen and I saved a ton on housing but there were a group of Korean travellers once that moved in for a month and they would come back at like 3 am and turn on the lights and make all kinds of noise - just rude and ignorant and loud bastards.

I complained to management and they eventually designated a dorm room where lights out at 12 am was strickly enforced. Try that; complain to management.

Tell him you have a bomb in your backpack.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
