Thumbs up

What do guys usually wear when going to shower rooms and at night in hostels (i.e. bedtime)?

Tee shirt and shorts or tee shirt and boxers, or ...... ?

I'll take it as a compliment to Dio and I...Thank you TUI!

In hostels, I wear my pj's and a tank, as I always do. But I won't go around in them, just hit the shower in the morning (or PM if the night before was busy!) and dress right after the shower. I don't mind guys (or even girls) walking around in their undies...I just never do it (No curtains in the windows in my appartment!)...I prefer to keep it a mysery, it's more fun to discover and explore afterwards...

In order to pack less. I usually wear a pair of shorts and a tank. The tank is specifically for sleeping, but the shorts I wear during the day too. This helped me save a little bit of space last time. Though I wasn't wearing my shorts too much (europe), so i don't know if i'd want to wear my sweaty shorts to bed in aus. hmm.

thx tui...

Wow, here's an oldie.

I just go with boxers too, sometimes if the dorm seems to be mostly girls I'll wear a beater or a muscle t

Until the pillow fights start, then its no holds barred

I just sleep in boxer's usually to save on room and that is a comfortable thing to sleep in. I, however, would be somewhat self conscious of how I looked in front of people until last night when a police officer walked into my home and saw my junk hanging out of my boxers in the middle of the night. I now know I am ready to take on anything in my bed garb.

There was this timid little Japanese girl that I booked into a room with one of our longer term residents because its a decent room and well, cause it was open. The guy is very decent and likeable, but three days after I put her there she comes to reception, blushing and mincing. I finally get it out of the ninny- she was very embarrassed because he slept in his boxers and sometimes (*gasp* horrors!) just wore boxers around the room. Actually he wears them and a shirt around the hostel too. I moved her to a different room and had a chuckle. So just watch out, boys. You might be offensive. Go get a habit. Like a nun.

You should have had the police intervention to stop this madman before he struck again at some other hostel.

I wear my velvet slippers and a silk smoking jacket. It's always fun to be the "eccentric" roommate.
