I am a young guy and would like to travel to europe for some times. Of course, youth hostel may be my first choice in accomodation.

When I was trying to find out information about the hostels, I found that almost all of the hotels offer mixed dorms only. Well, I personally do not have a problem with that. The main problem is that, I have the habbit of sleeping naked. I don't mind being seen but I wonder would the ladies in the mixed dorm mind my being naked.

I would try my best to get male dorm (I hope no other guys would mind a naked guy in the next bed), but in some cities I just can't find any.

I just want to ask, woud the ladies and the guys as well mind other people sleeping naked and sometimes walking around naked in the room?

Is it that difficult for you to wear boxers when you are travelling? It's basically just common curtesty to wear clothes when sleeping in a room with strangers.
I would ask you to wear something if I ended up with you in a room, so you might want to ask if people mind before flashing people, even in an all-male dorm room.

uuu naked....i wore gym pants, and long sleeve shirt, my hair in a bun and than hat over clean as it looks, i have no idea is it, and how many people slept in same bedding before me. i wouldn't dare sleeping in a hostel in a sleeveless shirt let alone naked. and , as Angela said, it is nice if you have something on, you know, courtesy...

I agree as a male, I don't really appreciate sleeping and waking up to someone stark naked in front of me. It happened once but he was drunk. As others have said, its probably best to at least wear pants and a shirt, get some really comfy ones?

i got a solution, just get under the covers, take em off, then its unconscious time, wake up, yawn a few times, put em back on under the covers, no big deal. i would'nt give a shit if i saw people walkin around naked or whatnot but i still don't think its somethin you wanna be putting a buncha strangers through. just my thoughts. peace~

I also think you might change your mind about how comfortable you are to do this when you are actually there...

personally I don't think its too much to ask to wear a pair of boxers or something for decency's sake ;)

When you walk around jsut wear at least a boxershort and if you are in your bed than you can take that off and nobody will know you sleep naked. As long as nobody knows it I guess it should not be a problem.
