"No Spring Rock Chick" Tourist Info Tip by msmodeshowsuhow

Tourist Info, Rome: 110 reviews and 89 photos

  Next day..
by msmodeshowsuhow

Fondest memory: I just had a few days off work and so went to Rome on my own. I decided to stay in a backpackers hostel for cheapness and because I thought a hotel room would isolating. I knew I’d made the right decision when I found myself at gone midnight, drinking not-so-cheap wine at a free open-air rock concert, with others from my hostel. What a great night.
As I’m 38, I had worried that the hostel would be full of much younger people and I wouldn’t ‘fit in’. Okay, well I was 9 years older than the oldest person I met, but although some of them were as young as my own child, nobody treated me like I was their mum. So, I’d say to any other ‘slightly older’ person thinking of staying in a hostel, if you’re up for it, go for it.
