Isn't the difference between a youth hostel and a hostel that the first one has an age restriction?

that is the irony... exactly what I asked, when I had my 1st hostel experience. I a very arrogant old fart who is out ruin everyones vacation by preaching is idea that life is hell and everyone should know it.

I am a little late on the issue, and too tired to read all the posts but, I think age restrictions are completely silly. I am a 20 year-old travelling alone, and though I occasionally like getting out, I also enjoy talking to people who have done more than I have...with age comes experience. I enjoy my sleep, hate the shagging as much as the next person (unfortunate experience of being on the bottom bunk ( an unsteardy one) with a rather robust couple on the top bunk), and can't stand it when my roomates look at me with insult when I am actually trying to sleep at 12. Avoid residence hostels, they only cause trouble and make you feel weird for actually getting up and out the next day. Youth Hostels have been fine so far.....mind you I'm young. But by far I love the hostel where they have the common rooms and people of all ages come around and ideas fly.

I guess oldies who LIVE in the hostels is another story.

They make the Computer their PC and since they cant go out, they spent all day using dating sites...
And produce noise pollution...

So its about turning hostels to homes for elderly. Having an 80 year old who is only in for 3 days, would mean that he has other things to do than just hanging out in the common area.

well SWEPT AWAY, I suggest you start a petition right now to ban "older" people from hostels, get all your work done now and I reckon in about a year or 2 everyone over 30 will be banned, and possibly killed, for being too old and useless for the X Generation that is sweeping the world and just basically making the world better with their crazy and lovable ideas. Oh hold om, I see you are 28, so, oops, i'm afraid you will have to ban yourself too, uhmmmm.... oh dear, you didnt think this through properly did you......uhmm, ah well, its ok, I am sure when you hit 30 you will realise how rubbish you have become....you will start to enjoy dating sites .....and talking rubbish with other people that are far too old to be worthy of this world, so yay!!!!!!!!!! all sorted.... i think....i am mumbling, sorry, its just that i am over 30 too..................................................................

Its convenient to attack people rather than deal with arguements or ideas.

Precisely, I am 28, so common sense will tell you I am not lobbying for the banning of old people in hostels.
Or maybe I am. But I was careful with my statements, since I assume that some people don't have a sense of humor.

Its just a thought that arised due to some encounters. In a world where some hostel are exclusive for some nationalities or sexual preferences, it is possible that some hostel will have age limits. ACTUALLY, hostels with age limits alraedy exist.
