I was wondering if it is common for hostels to have age limits?  I’m a 40 y/o male and was thinking about going to Europe for a month, but also trying to keep an eye on the money.  Is it totally uncommon for someone of my age to stay in hostels?  I just saw one in London that said no one over 35.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.[]

Limits are very unusual; in Bavaria HI hostels give priority to those under 27 but they’ll still take you if the place isn’t booked up and you wander in.

I’ve been hosteling for over 30 years and still use them on occasion.  I’m the exception, but I often am out-aged by even more feeble individuals.

Agree.  I think Sir Toby’s, in Prague, will put older people in private rooms.

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.
