The Roommate Diaries

Welcome to ‘The Roommate Diaries’!

This new series of blog posts will describe all sorts of roommates and other hostel guests we’ve encountered during our travels: the good, the bad and some which you might not believe to be true. We met some of these characters for just a few minutes, whereas others we had to live with for days!

We have made this completely anonymous and haven’t included anyone’s real name or the specific location we met them. Instead, we’ve chosen a nickname that may help you to identify with this type of person on your travels too.

Throughout the series, we’ll also feature roommates from fellow backpackers. If you’d like to contribute a story or two, send us an email at
