I heard that backpacker hostel are extremely cheap and that it’s super convenient for travelers who travel lightly. Just wondering if it’s actually safe, in terms of sharing the room with other guests and the locations of these hostels.

Most hostels in Thailand are more than adequate to the prices for the selected rooms and finding a reputable hostel that is quite international would be better to stay in cities like Bangkok and Phuket. Depending on what type of hostel you’re looking for, there’s a wide difference in ambiance and services when you look into each place. Some hostels do even offer a private room with a private bathroom so you can opt for that if sharing the room with other travelers makes you feel uncomfortable. However, if you are open to sharing the room, you can make new friends who are always traveling to the same places as you are which could make your trip a lot more fun. That said, always remember that in hostel-type accommodations, you still need to take precautions over your personal possessions (money, expensive clothes, etc). When booking your hostel online, try to find the most recent traveler reviews on that accommodation so you can be sure of what to expect.
