aight faggots I'll try and keep it simple. I'm a britbong looking to move out of my parent's place, and the easiest option right now is getting into a hostel.

On paper it's pretty easy as long as I have a job, but obviously because it's a hostel I expect it to be rough, or shitty, or both. Anyone here lived like this? What was the experience like? Opinions? Advice? An hero?

srsly tho any advice would be much appreciated.

Living in London

Even at the low end of $20 per night, a hostel isn't any cheaper than a one bedroom apartment where I live.

In London apartments are hella expensive, like, notoriously expensive.

Why the fuck would you ever want to do this? It's not less expensive if that's what you're thinking. It's for having a place to socialize and sleep when you're on the road traveling, not a place for just living long term.

>where I live
Do you live in a major city that's comparable to London?

If you enjoy the lifestyle, you'll probably get sucked up into it, and not do anything productive until you've lost your teeth to meth, can't hold down a job for more than a year, and would be homeless if it wasn't for that new friends couch you're staying on.

You'll use people to get your way, and if it doesn't work out that way, you'll end up on the edge of suicide until your next fix of life.


t. guy who works with a bunch of rehab people like this.

It's great if you just need to go out and live a party lifestyle for a few months, year, whatever. But, try and reach for better, don't think it's okay to stay like that forever.

Yeah I feel ya. I only plan to live there just to kinda prove I can live independently and away from parents if that makes any sense. I don't do much drinking and if I smoke it's only once a week.

My big concern is whether it'd be rough or not. The places I've seen don't accept people on benefits or who are unemployed so I think that weeds out some cunts but still, ya never know.

>>18054910
Worst case scenario, you don't have a good time, and run on home.
>>
>>18054915
Pretty much desu

Pretty much any job here will cover rent in the places I'm looking at, and it's even less if you go with buddies. Utilities are covered so I don't need to worry about that either, and some places even feed ya. Long story short, I should be in the clear in terms of money.

Actual londoner or those middle class hipster cunts who've come over?
