alright- i have noticed that some hostels have age limits, such as "no one under 18," and "no one under 21."
does TP have notices in the hostel descriptions? I havn't seen any yet... and i don't was to arrive and have thmem say i can't come in.

We don't personally keep the descriptions of each hostel. That's done thru the hostel search on the front page (www.travelpunk.com). I believe its actually run by hostels.com (stop me if I'm wrong!)

When booking your hostel read in the description section for any catches. This area should enclude any age restrictions, lock out times etc...

Example:

Quote:
This is a Hostelling International (HI) hostel. A valid HI membership card is required to stay at HI hostels. If you are not a member, an extra fee of € 3,50 per person and night will apply. You can get a membership card before your trip to our country.

Before booking a hostel through TP (of course!) I would check the reviews and the basic info in the listings at hostelz.com - they'll give you age limits, curfews, whether credit cards are accepted, etc.

I can't imagin many of them not letting you in if you have a booking, but you never know. i would only worry if your under 18 and really look well under that age.
