Hi there! Hostels nowadays can be really nice and some, not so nice, but mostly all of them provide the basic necessities. By that I mean that all of them are equipped with showers, mirrors and electricity. It's perfectly fine to use hairdryers/straighteners in hostels, but just make sure you bring your own (I would recommend travel size) and have the right adapter depending on where you go. Some places are more humid than others, so I would suggest maybe some serum for hair and make sure you have plenty of sunscreen.
