Establish a good relationship with roommates. This is a top priority. Because with these people you will live side by side. Do not be afraid, do not fawn, do not lie and do not attempt to command. Be friendly, but immediately cross any attempt to sit around your neck. Once you agree to go for a beer or to clean the room out of turn, and the reputation of a weakling you provided. The same applies to the higher rate. Remember, a hostel – not the army. No one will kick you in tarpaulin boots and forced to clean the toilet with a toothbrush. But attempts to make you a servant is quite possible. After "authoritative" old-timers convinced of your independence, they will fall behind.
Handle money correctly. Usually in the Dorm do not live the most wealthy students, and the lack of money for them – the usual case. Learn to save and not go into debt, if your budget is very modest. And never tell anyone how much money you have really, even if you can afford to dine in the restaurant. Lovers live at the expense of others in the Dorm enough. But if you have a few people room, this does not mean that you have to share everything else.
Take part in parties and hanging out. It is not necessary to break away from the group. Such glory hogs don't have any respect and love. It is not necessary to get drunk to unconsciousness in order to gain recognition in their Board. Believe me, in the hostel is possible and have fun, and pass the session from one five. It is only a matter of self-organization and desire.
Learn to be friends. Very helpful to be able to defend their opinion and not to succumb to provocations. But it's also important to come to the rescue if a friend really needs it. Not to withdraw into themselves and do not look around, only enemies. Often acquaintance and friendship, appeared in the hostel, the people retain all his life.
