There's always one.
There are just so many of us EVERYWHERE.
We have no idea how to drink in moderation.
We refuse to go home, whether it’s a nightclub or the European continent.
Nobody understands our sense of humour…or anything we say, tbh.
Growing up with snakes and spiders means we aren’t afraid of anything.
We swear way too much, even when we’re trying to be complimentary.
We will invite you to visit our hometown...repeatedly.
We get weirdly excited about public transport.
We will make you try Vegemite.
We’re pretty flexible with plans, so we’ll probably end up crashing yours.
We get easily overwhelmed in the Big Smoke.
We're always up for a chat! Even if it’s in the middle of the night and in the dorm room for everyone to hear.
We are terrible at learning other languages.
Our warped sense of distance means we will try to make you walk everywhere.
We just can’t stop complaining about how shit the coffee is.
Or how the beaches don’t compare to the ones down under.
But at the end of the day, you know the hostel wouldn't be the same without us.
