I don't get it. What were you pissed about? About them being Swedish, or about them being roommates? Or about the two daughters?

I agree with Clara - from the way John wrote his reply, I think he believed he would have the whole room to himself. And, that's not to mention he'd just come back from the shower with only a towel wrapped around himself. A rather awkward situation when you think you are all alone.

To clarify; I would never complain about finding Swedish daughters in my room; but that is for the other thread.

I was just surprised really, after enjoying a rare quiet night in a dorm, to come back from the shower to find an entire family sprawling about every part of the room. Just caught me a bit off guard.

But like I said, they turned out to be awesome, and now if I am ever fortunate enough to visit Sweden I have places to stay all over the country. The kids are fully grown and they all live in different parts of the country.

Thanks for coming to my defense girls; and no I do not have anything against Swedes; I've spent the last 10 years cheering for Foppa and the Colorado Avalanche!

I wasn't attacking you though! Just curious. ;)

i guess my worst was when i was in auckland
and i was in a 8 person dorm room and everyone in the room got on
really well and then the guy who slept below me left and a new dude, he was french moved in. kinda bit of an ego trip but apparently we all went down to the bar and being that i was drunk first as always and had to go upstairs to sleep it off at like 12 and aparently they all came up at like 2ish and just settled started to fall asleep when the french guy under me came in with a chick and they started really getting into it and being loud so everyone woke up but i. then apparently they starting doing it and were literally shaking the bed and everyone in the room was half staring and laughing cause they coudlnt believe i didnt wake up. and aparently at one point my arm was hanging off the bed and she was grabbing it.

ewwww... i didnt find out until the next morning.. needless to say i felt violated

My worst roommatesstory is not from an hostel but from a sharing house. I had a really small room for myself and one morning (i was working night) my single had change to a twin change with bond beds.
Noone was home to get answers. I left for a birthday and came back quite late. Sneak into my rooms and went straight to bed. After a couple of minutes someone came in and got into my bed. I pushed him away telling him to go on the top bed but he said he did not wnat to sleep alone. I had to fight with him to get him out of my bed. I finished to go outside the room and start screaming to get someone to help me. I finally mooved out two days later as i could not sleep in a room where this guy was in.

Going to kill roommates!!!!!

Im staying with 2 girls at the moment...I think Im going to have to do away with either one or both of them if I want to get any sleep. They are without doubt the worst ones I have encountered in these last 6 months travelling.

They come in at 6 or 7 most mornings, turn on the lights, start falling over everything in the room, talkng and laughing really loudly, or even worse whispering as loud as they can and giggling uncontrollably.

Hvaing the intense love affair that I do with my pillow,I dont really mind most of the time because even if I wake up I tend to go straight back to sleep, but after 2 weeks of this Im starting to LOSE MY RAG! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

The straw that broke the camel´s back was this morning. This time, it was me who came home at 7 in the morning to find the dorm room door locked. I knocked...and knocked...and knocked. No answer. Went to engage the night guy´s help. He thumped...and thumped...and thumped...still nothing. So then he just got mad and banged really loudly and shouted at them. Various grumbling and muttering sounds came from within followed by a loud thud, as one of them presumably fell from the top bunk getting down. Curses. The door was opened with a dramatic sigh and the key thrust at the night guy.

As I found my way to my bed, eyes slowly adjusting to the dark I realised that they had not one but two guys in the room, and one of these fine specimens had crashed out on my bed and was snoring like a foghorn!
Not the first time there have been "suitors" in the room at night. All I can say is thank god for MP3 players.

Its getting ridiculous. I may have to move hostels, or at least rooms anyway....

Urgh, Ev, I hated it when people were sleeping in my bed, although luckily that only happened to me twice. Definitely one of the worst things to happen in a dorm room; you've already narrowed your sense of territoriality down to just that tiny space, putting up with others and their strange habits in this same room, hardly ever a real moment of privacy to be had - and then when 'they' invade even that last space... *shakes his head*

Makes you really appreciate the occassions when you splurge on a single room for a night, though. :)

i had this roomate in this hostel in australia. in the middle of the night she would start screaming and kicking the walls while she was in bed. she would start yelling "ADAM GET OUT OF MY BLOOD!!" over and over pretty weird shit. i went down to reception and had her kicked out. i was thinking if she stayed she could of killed or hurt everyone in the room

This is the only truely bad experience I have had with a roomate.

I came into the dorm one evening to find they guy shaving his pubes with my electric razor. He had the nerve to say thanks after I angrily told him to keep it.
