Arriving late at night at a hostel

10 Feb 2010 Mel said

So i am planning on booking a hostel in NYC but my flight doesn't get into Newark until 10pm and its international so i'm guessing i won't get to the hostel until after midnight. The thing i'm worried about is walking into a shared room at that late hour or should i book a room at an airport hotelin newark?

    I would either:-

    - Stay at the airport hotel so that I could get some decent rest before moving to the city the next day; or

    - alternatively, could book a private room in the hostel (if available) so that you’re not disturbing anyone when you arrive.

    Either way sounds good to me!

    Thanks for the advice… i just thought it would be inconsiderate to make noise and turn lights on etc at that late hour don’t want the room mates to hate me before i even say hi… lol… Any more advice/suggests are welcome Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
