I guess it's part of hostel culture - if you're comfortable sleeping, snoring, burping, farting, etc. etc. in a room full of strangers, you'd probably be just as comfortable walking around naked, too.

Personally, I wouldn't care that anyone slept nude, but I wouldn't really want to see people roaming around without a little something on. It's not even a prude thing - it's a personal space thing. I don't like people I don't know to be in my personal space, so dangling around in the area I'm sleeping just feels like an unwanted invasion. Then again, like Isa, I much prefer to sleep in a private room. I'll share a bathroom and a kitchen and whatever else, but it's nice to close the door at night and have a space all to yourself.

burping, farting


I would want to change rooms if there were people doing those any more often than an infrequent accident.

T - I love the way you phrase things!!! I now have this very comical image in my head.
I like the private (hotel) room because they usually come equipped with a mini-bar and no strangers shagging in the bed next to me. Clothes - no clothes, doesn't matter. Just don't ask me to critique the physique as I'm likely to tell you. (I try to live by the "don't ask - don't tell" policy.)

Wow!

I've never quite thought of bodily functions as accidents... It's truly unhealthy to hold in all that hot air.

You had to go and open that door.

Well, it's probably better that someone opens the door just to let in some fresh air. Gives them something to do while just dangling about.

If you're going to dangle, don't jangle, I don't want to hear it.

I would not mind in the least.

When I was younger I stayed at several hostels in Europe. In the first one coming from a very conservative background on the first night I slept in my nightie , but on the second night I did the same as my roomies and slept naked. As I got into the culture I became more relaxed about nudity and in the end walked to and from the shower nude.
