10. Pack some sheets.
Most hostels nowadays provide sheets, but they might not be as fresh as you think. So invest in a good pair of travel sleep sheets. Trust us, bedbugs are the last thing you want to meet in a hostel.
9. Bring 2 hangers.
Hangers can be very useful in a hostel, especially if there is little room to dry your things. They can also serve as a tablet PC holder, etc.
8. Take a plastic container.
If you cook your food in a hostel, then a plastic container is what you need. One or 2 small containers will save your leftovers and help you save money on buying fresh ingredients.
