The pros and cons of party hostels

The first time I ever stayed at a party hostel, I was 20 years old and in love with everything about it. I was at the age where I could drink all night, go to bed at 6 AM, and still be ready to go and explore the city by noon.

I could sleep through anything, including the bumping beats from the nightclub directly below the appropriately-named Infinity Party Hostel.
