    Hi guys-
    I have been hostelling a fair bit recently. Have stayed in some cool hostels a few with communal showers, bar flimsy curtains. Noticed a fair bit of wanking/showing off going on. Any other similar experiences?
    Would be cool to build up a list of hostels/places to stay with communal showers/ good dorm room layouts for showing off.
    Would certainly recommend hostels in Stockholm, Berlin and Recife-Brazil.

    The hostel I stayed at in Reykjavik had open communal showers which were always busy, never saw anything other than guys having a shower though. They also had private showers which people always waited for, but I guess, like me, most of the guys either couldn't be bothered waiting or just didn't care if someone else saw their penis. I would guess that most hostels in Iceland are communal as they are more than used to showering nude in front of other people as it's mandatory to do so before setting foot in any of their public thermal pools (blue lagoon for example), so they do it from a young age.

    The rooms were big and laid out quite well in that one could be seen from all the beds if one wanted to, but I wasn't really about showing off to people who, like me, were just there to sleep. As the dorms were mixed too, I did not think it appropriate to stroll naked or purposely show anything off. Each to their own though. I mean surely it depends on who you're sharing with. If it's all guys then none of them would probably care if you got your dick out while getting changed...mixed dorms and you may get a telling off.

    I shared a hostel room in Croatia recently which had mostly teenage guys in it, so no one really cared what was on show. On my 3rd night though, 2 girls and a mother with 2 kids got put in the room, so it would have been out of order to stroll around in underwear or less, so we got changed in the shower room.

    You can never tell with strangers what they will take offence to, so I always err on the side of caution in hostels and only get naked to get changed if I'm alone, it's dark or the other person/people have done it first, at least then I get the message that they are ok with nudity. I certainly don't go to hostels looking for anything other than a place to meet fellow travelers and share stories about my trips and gain inspiration for my future travel plans.

    Thanks Cooks- what was the name of the Reykjavik hostel? The one i stayed in in Stockholm was the Interhostel which had much of the same set up.
    I think Budapest is a good bet Oprime;-)

    I stayed at a hostel in Miami Beach and the shower room had three individual showers with curtains. But there was no private changing rooms so some guys would enter the shower wearing their underwear and draw the curtain but some others - like myself - would just strip in the common area. When I was about to go shower and saw some guy going too, I stripped in the common area next to him to show them I didn't mind... and it worked every time, the guy would unstrip too and then get in the shower -- probably feeling it was okay because it was just guys after all. I saw some great cocks by the way ;-)

    I stayed in a youth hostel in Melbourne, Australia back in '95 (a university dorm converted into a hostel over the summer months) which had a communal shower. I remember showering in there with a couple of other dudes.

    Kex Hostel in Reykjavik. If you go in summer, it's a venue for Icelands "Airwaves" festival, so will probably attract all sorts of interesting people. It's quite new, and is very quirky as it's built in an old biscuit/cookie factory. There are cheaper places to stay in Reykjavik, but this place was great for me.

    Sounds great. Yeah similar to Stockholm. I even found that if I left my shower curtain open other guys felt relaxed to too. Yeah I must have had a 30 min shower each day all the coming and going. Some spanish guys were particularly comfortable to strip off and lather up facing out towards the changing area¬Ö

    Sounds great. I'll add it onto my trip list. Iceland is certainly somewhere I would like to visit. :smile: Quirky is good too.

    i was in a hostel in helsinki last summer...instead of curtains there were glass doors, and the three showers all faced a giant mirror at the sinks, so you could see the other guys showering until the glass got fogged up, whether you were in the shower or at the sink.

    I stayed at this Helsinki hostel too. It was cool because since there was no real privacy with the showers, guys didn't really care and undressed before stepping in the shower or just hung out naked by the sinks. I brushed my teeth while another guy was shaving - we were both naked - and chatted a bit, it was nice :)

    Some guests went naked in the sauna at Eurohostel too, great thing about Finland lol.
    I've stayed at the West Side YMCA in NYC a couple times. Saw a few well hung guys towel off with the curtains open, also right across from the mirrors. Had one guy check out my package over and over while I was shaving in boxers. Plus there's a nice big steamroom in the Y gym on the ground floor that guests can use.

    Hey Mate you and I are exactly the same in loving this! I look for hostels with open showers and male only rooms, i love catching out guys wanking in the showers whether they are open communal ones or private ones its hot u can always see if you put your mind to it!

    I stayed at the CityHostel in Berlin, they have dividers but its got a wall where u hang your stuff then walk over to the showers which have curtains which are clear and the dividers have had their sticker covers peeled off mostly so its clear glass dividers above knee height, hard to describe but check it out.

    Im staying at the Eurohostel in Helsinki in June, I can't wait!!

    Also staying in Berlin at the ALL IN HOSTEL, google it the showers are totally open.

    Staying in London at Piccadilly Backpackers which from reviews has open non private showers also!!

    Love staying in male only dorms, being naked and wanking in bed to try and get others to do the same!! when i stayed in berlin there was all these european students at the cityhostel i just wanted in the shower with the clear divider next to me, the guy next to me didn't care he looked like he had a semi, haven't seen any guys wank in an open shower setting, but have peeped through holes or looked in reflections and seen the hottest guys blow huge loads. Hostels are so good for this i love them!
