We asked the BuzzFeed Community about the most bizarre thing they ever experienced while staying in a hostel. Here's what they said:
1. Footsie in Phuket
2. The Near Piss-aster
3. The Actual Piss-aster
At a hostel in Berlin, I work up to find a drunk dude peeing on a suede jacket that belonged to the girl in the bunk above me. She was NOT happy.

8. The Lover's Spat (and then some)
I stayed at a hostel in Panama City, Panama when I was 16. It was the first time I was ever traveling by myself. I requested a private room, but they were all full so the hostel staff put me in a room with empty bunkbeds but told me that it would fill up by the end of the night.
I woke up around 3 a.m. to people yelling and slamming against the wall. Two Australian tourists were fighting in my room – a legit fight – and here I am, freaking out about what to do! The other guests just rolled over to the other side of their bunk and went back to sleep. Two seconds later, the guys who were fighting started MAKING OUT and ended up having sex on the floor next to my bed! Eventually they made it to their bed, which happened to be the one above me. Needless to say it was quite the experience.

9. The Hold Up
10. The Jerk in the Bottom Bunk
I was staying in a mixed dorm hostel in Barcelona. Things were going well, the staff were super friendly. Then, on our last night before an early plane out, my friend and I went to bed early. I was in the top bunk, and I woke up in the middle of night to the bed shaking.
What was happening? Oh, this guy was just jerking off beneath me.
It was a long night.

11. The Accidental Camp Out
After hanging out with some new friends until 2am during a group trip to Solerno, Italy, me and my roommate decided to head back upstairs for some sleep.
But when we got to our room, we realized we didn't have the key. Or the numbers of anyone else on the trip. We tried knocking on several doors, hoping our tripmates would answer, but no one ever did. We were able to get to the balcony, so we tried the doors that connected to our room from there. All were locked. We banged, no one answered.
We ended up having to grab some towels that were drying outside and trying to fall asleep on some fold-out chairs. The following morning our roomates opened the balcony doors and were suprised to see us. They said that the all heard weird noises that night, but (sadly) chose to ignore them. At least I got to watch the sunrise...

12. The False Alarm
13. The Stash
14. Lost in Translation
I was staying in a hostel in Rio with a friend. On our last morning, I was in the room packing and she had gone to the communal bathroom to brush her teeth. She came back into the room with a look of horror on her face. Apparently, another woman staying at the hostel had come into the bathroom freaking out about something in a language no one understood. The only cubicle was occupied, and she was getting more and more hysterical. My friend finally turned around to see what all the fuss was about, and realised that the woman had done a poo in her pants, ALL OVER THE FLOOR. My friend had to do a flying leap over the mess to get out, and did not recover until we were on the plane home.
